Today we have Jacynthe from Jacynthe Photography for our artist feature! I have noticed Jacynthe’s work through our weekly themes for the past year and I love her work. Grab your preferred cup and take a break from the day catching up with one of your fellow photographers.
A little about Jacynthe
My name is Jacynthe Curtis. I am French Canadian ( originally from Montréal, Québec) and married a cute American. We live in beautiful Colorado. I am a registered dental hygienist and started taking photography classes when I was in college, about 30 years ago. French is my native language and I love to go back to Montréal to visit family every year. I was blessed with 4 wonderful children and a crazy cat!
What does photography mean to you?
I love seeing and capturing everyday life. That is my favourite style of photography. I can appreciate posed photographs and I do take them as well, but to me capturing moments as they happen has so much more meaning. Photography allows me to remember moments I can easily forget. These images bring me back almost instantly.
What motivates and inspires you?
There are so many awesome photographers out there that inspire me to work harder and better. But still keeping it simple. I never use overlays, never make people skinner or put smiles where there weren’t any. Real life. And I love life so inspiration comes everyday in any form. There is something beautiful everywhere. You just have to look for it.
Are you in business or hobbyist?
While I don’t consider myself a professional photographer, I do sessions for friends and family. And the last 5 years have kept me busier than I ever hoped I would be. So grateful for their support and love!
Can you share with us 5 of your favorite images and tell us why you love them so.
I love when moms want to be in front of the camera. What a sweet moment I was able to capture here with amazing natural light!
These twins are so sweet and I’ve known them since they were babies. I was thrilled to have my wide angle with me that day. The Colorado Rockies in the background. I just love it!!!
Well this just brings a smile to my face! So much love between these two!!
Newborn with mom in bed. How sweet that is!
Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona. This was my niece. Honestly, this place always takes my breath away! You walk up to it and there are no gates or fences. I could sit there for hours. Love this place!!
What’s in your camera bag?
I am a Sony girl. I have a full frame camera – the a99. I use several lense depending on the occasion. I recently go the 85mm, 1.4 and love love love it! I mostly use the 70-200mm, 2.8 and 24-70mm, 2.8.
What does your editing process look like?
I always shoot in RAW and my editing process is simple and keeping it real. I never use actions or overlays. There is nothing wrong with using actions or overlays, it’s just not my style.
