Hi! My name is Carrie and I live in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. I have a wonderful husband, three amazing children who are 15, 13 and 4 years old. They are my joy, my muses and my loves.
I shoot with a Canon 7D, love my 17-40mm lens for my dance photos outdoors, and I work primarily in Adobe Bridge and Photoshop CS5.
Some fun facts about me:
I love tradtion but am anything but traditional.
Our wedding was in 2004, we had a Best Man & Maid of Honour... and 1 ring bearer and 5 (yes, you read that right) flower girls!
I am Italian and my husband is French.
I love Monday evenings editing at Starbucks with a hot chocolate in my hand.
I have a Bachelor of Social Work Degree and spent my entire time as a social worker with the ASK Wellness Centre!
I set my clocks ahead so I'm usually right on time ;)
Family is my everything.
Classic Blue Photography was founded in 2009 under the name "Carrie Boileau Photography". I found people had difficulty pronouncing my French last name, so I shortened my business name to "CB Photography". I stuck this out for quite awhile but it still just didn't seem like "me"... until one day, while considering business names and driving around town, I looked back in my rear view mirror. My little miracle baby's blue eyes met mine in the mirror and I knew what name would be a perfect fit. My favourite color has always been blue, our last name roughly translates to "drink water", my husband's family color is blue, or beloved old dog's name was Blue (after the beer), and even our house is blue. The only thing in this whole story that was intentionally chosen was my business name; life has always just pointed us towards blue :-D
I have my eye set on a vintage car up the road from us that's for sale... You'll never guess what color it is!
