"I wanted to share our experience with our photographer Jody Boryski. I know how difficult it can be to have children pose for pictures, but she possesses the innate ability to capture their attention and make everyone feel very relaxed and spontaneous. She displays the utmost professionalism always and creates extremely beautiful, creative and natural photos. Her care and patience in assisting us choose the final photos is much appreciated. We have had her take our family pictures for the last four years and would never consider using anyone else. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for high quality professional photography."
"We were given a gift certificate for a photo shoot with Jody for the birth of our first baby... and 9 years and 3 kids later, she is still photographing our family. We love her warm, easy going, fun-loving personality and most importantly, her patient and calm demeanour (which has been essential with our more spirited children)! I also value her versatility as an photographer. Not only are her more traditional family portraits beautiful but she does an amazing job of capturing those spontaneous, candid moments that I cherish most. Whether it's capturing our kids splashing in the river or playing in the rain, her creativity and eye for composition are exceptional. Simply put, her photographs are not just photographs; they are art."
"Jody has been our family photographer since the birth of our son in 2011. From the way she works with light to the way she captures candid moments of sweetness and laughter - Jody is a true professional and artist. We have many of her incredible photos throughout our home. We also have one particular larger piece of art that everyone can't help but love. It is a truly stunning picture that perfectly encapsulates the beauty, innocence and peace of childhood. I am so grateful to Jody for documenting so many simple but incredible moments that we will always cherish."
"Jody was recommended to us 12 years ago when we moved back to Calgary. I took my girls (then aged 2 and 5) for some portraits. The girls had so much fun in the session and the photos were beautiful - we had a hard time choosing between them - some were fun, some whimsical, some serious - capturing the personalities of the girls. Since then we’ve gone back for annual ‘Jody’ photos - sometimes in the studio, sometimes outside at a location of our choosing. Despite Jody being in California and us moving to Victoria two years ago, Jody found a way to fit us in. Our last photo shoot was with an ocean backdrop in south Oak Bay, Victoria with our golden retriever. My girls look forward to their session every year and the photos have become among our very favourite, providing a wonderful documentation of their growth from preschool through to high school."
"Our family has been seeing Jody for family pictures since 2007. Jody was recommended by a friend, whose exact words were, “you have to go see Jody, she is amazing!” Jody has lived up to this and more. The first time we met with Jody, we had two children and were so impressed by Jody’s creativity, flexibility, and calm demeanour, we kept coming back on a regular basis. Jody strives to work with families on an individual basis, communicating to ensure that preferred ideas or themes are incorporated into pictures. Jody is also quick to adjust and go with the flow of whatever is happening at the time of the shoot. We enjoy photos that are less posed and more impromptu, catching the “real” moments of our family. Jody has captured these moments as our children are growing up. Over the years, our family has expended to four children, photo shoots can be “busy”, and we have left a shoot or two wondering if Jody was able to capture anything. However, every time we get our pictures, there are countless portraits beautifully depicting our family. For us, Jody does not just take pictures, she captures the true energy and essence of our family, creating priceless keepsakes."
