Celebrating 2018

Two Thousand and Eighteen. What an amazing year! We witnessed love in all of it’s forms; connection, change, joy, family. That last one – family – holds endless meaning as this word can be defined in countless ways. No matter the form, we captured, and were a part of what family means to so many.
Not a day goes by that I, Kaja, am not full of gratitude to everyone who lets us come into their lives, their private moments, their homes, their hearts, all in order to help create their visual history. How unbelievably amazing!
On a personal note, I saw some changes of my own this year as my husband and I moved back to Ottawa from the Toronto area. This brought about it’s own obstacles and challenges, yet my clients and my camera continued to give further purpose and meaning to my life. Every single client becomes a person who shows me that the world and people are indeed inherently good. We are all looking for the same thing – Love, purpose, understanding. It is found all around us, whether it be through parents, siblings, friends, children, pets, partners and sometimes even strangers.
During the year of 2018 we photographed connections and celebrations in a flurry of passport stamps and odometer clicks on my beloved red Mazda. Globe-dotted celebratory locations included: Hawaii, Mexico, Vermont, the Dominican Republic, Oshawa, Toronto, Port Perry, Montreal, Ottawa and of course all of the beautiful Ontario locations in-between. This life is a beautiful one (even when it feels like it isn’t). I am sending out an eternal Thank You to everyone who supports Jack Loves Mary Photography.
Here is a small sample of some of my favourite images from 2018:
