My name is Charlotte Buckle, people call me Char, C, or Toad (long story). Really, I will respond to pretty much anything.
I have loved photography for the majority of my 25 years (yikes, old!) on this earth. I began dappling in the professional side of things officially since August 2016 but have been taking photos for others since the summer of 2015.
Here is a little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Kentville, Nova Scotia, and I am an East Coast/ Valley girl through and through – that Atlantic life can’t be beat! I recently moved from Brandon, Manitoba to Belleville, Ontario – a lot closer to home – where I live with my incredible husband of almost 4 years (June 1st), Mark, and our very own zoo (3 dogs and 1 cat). I love to explore, mostly by way of hiking, and discovering the vast beauty that God has blessed us with here on Earth. I am a HUGE animal lover – I cannot get enough of them! My favourite animal has always been an elephant (how can you not love those gentle giants!). Some of my other favourite things include: reading mostly non-fiction – I love me some real-life inspiration! -, binge watching everything possible on Netflix, playing Halo with Mark, getting into difficult positions on my yoga mat, taking snaps of everything (duh!), and pretending that I know how to write!
I like to keep my photography style as “real” as possible. I try to create an atmosphere for my clients where they are comfortable and able to be themselves and just pretend that some crazy chick with a camera isn’t following them around! No robots here – it’s all about being your natural, beautiful self!
I refer to myself as a lifestyle photographer because I have shot families, couples, maternity, and will soon have a couple of weddings under my belt. I am a natural light photographer – I try to interfere as little as possible during my shoots (ie. Not big on most props, no extra lighting tools, etc.). I shoot with a Canon 6D and currently have on my absolute favourite lens, a Sigma 35mm 1.4. I use Lightroom 5 to edit all of my photos – someday I will brave the world of Photoshop!
If you are interested in having photos done, want information on pricing or just want to chat (I’m a little shy but friendly!), just give me shout over at my contact page!
Thank you for visiting my little internet-gallery of photography and every day happenings. 🙂
