About

I am Caroline, a boutique photographer living in Dawson Creek BC, Canada. Mother of three beautiful boys, a cat person and passionate about photography. My love for photography started while I was in high school, even though I didn't participate in any photography classes while in school. At first, I took pictures of my pets and nature, I was lucky to live in the country at the time with my mother surrounded by the majestic mountains of BC, and we also travelled a lot, so I became inspired by the beauty around me. We used to chase the summer storms then, in my mother’s old Dodge Cummins, it was our favorite thing to do together. I remember the grey skies, angry above us, the lightning slashing thru the horizon, and the metal like howl along with the rain drumming on the roof of the truck as we were speeding towards the storm’s belly. I was so excited yet a little terrified, growing smaller into the back seat with my simple camera, thinking ‘’ this is so cool’’! and my mom’s eyes smiling back at me thru the rear-view mirror, then we would pull to the side of the highway and I would take pictures, like a ‘’professional’’, I began to love photography, and I love it even more now as I begin to see the reflection of those moments, in the pictures  I produced, they are beautiful colorful fabric, the fabric of my dreams, emotions, memories. It gave me a sense of accomplishment.

 

Later in my 20s, I finally purchased my first DSLR camera. I started taking online workshop classes and learned so much from skillful, wonderful artists I look up to and I am very thankful for. I started practicing my photography skills by taking pictures of my baby. I watched him smile, sleep, play and grow. I am a self-taught photographer, an artist. I love the art of photography and I don't think I could ever live without it. Being behind the viewfinder and capturing all the beauty in this world is a way to preserve memories the way they are as they gloriously pass me by.

My ultimate goal is to create beautiful imagery for my clients. I guarantee high quality and professionally printed products that will last a lifetime. I strive to provide my clients with a pleasing photography experience, great images, a diverse product line and exceptional customer service. I’ve learned over the 10 years, what makes my clients happy and I’ve built my business around it. Letting my clients choose their favourite images, digitally enhanced high resolution delivered through high quality prints, and much, much more. Be sure to contact me with questions and to check my prices and availability.

"I just received my pictures today. I have to say, they are amazing. Caroline did an amazing job! She was great with my kids and didn't rush. She took her time to get the perfect shots. I highly recommend using Trandafir Photography, and would use her again.
Thank you so much for giving us beautiful memories."

"My family had a great time having our photos taken. Our photographer was easy to communicate with, our photo shoot was easy to book, photos were edited and completed in a timely manner, so happy we went ahead and had our Christmas photos done a month later. Very happy and definitely recommend this lady."
