A Bit About Me
Hi! My name is Fran and I’m a self-taught photographer and the owner of @lizzie.bear on Instagram. My two main subjects are my golden girls Lizzie and Ally. Although I also love landscape photography, having a live subject in my photos is always what draws me the most.
My photography style is always evolving but the thing that stays the same is my desire to capture their personalities, special moments or an expression that will make the viewer feel something. Sometimes it’s a certain look, some beautiful scenery or maybe a snuggle moment between the girls. I also try to capture the changing seasons we have here in Ottawa, Canada. The Fall foliage is definitely a favourite and snowy winter shots too. In the Spring I like to visit the local tulip festival and capture the girls and abundant flowers in and around town. I also take them to a lavender field in nearby Quebec that makes for beautiful settings!
Their favourite activity in the Summer is swimming. If there is any water nearby the girls will be right in! There are many lakes in the Ottawa region where I take them but their favourite place (and mine) is the beach on the east coast of Maine. We travel there in the Summer and on most days you’ll find us on the beach at sunrise. We have the beach to ourselves, the girls can run freely and I never miss an opportunity to capture a beach sunrise!
