Thanks for stoppin' by! My name is Geneviève Paris-Griffiths, but I go by 'Giouge' (the G's are soft.) I know, really weird nickname… My grandpa couldn't pronounce my real name, so the nickname 'Giougiou' was given to me as a wee one. My nickname has had many variations since then and, as you can tell, Giouge was the one that stuck. :)
I'm 21 years old and I reside in my hometown of Vancouver, British-Columbia. I never get sick of the beautiful city I grew up in. The Lower Mainland holds so many rad people & places, and I feel extremely lucky to call it my home.
I adore taking photos of people. People make me really happy, and I am extremely grateful to have so many inspiring ones in my life. That's why photography's ability to capture someone's personality and story is the aspect I love most about it. I’m a happy camper if I can capture even a tiny bit of who someone is in a photo. That is, ultimately, my goal. It's why I love to shoot people at their favourite place or location, or somewhere that simply brings them happiness, comfort and peace. Somewhere they can be themselves. On my Instagram, you can usually find a little write-up about the person I photographed in the caption underneath their photo; why I'm stoked on them, what their personality is like, what they get up to in life, etc. I like to paint a little picture of who that person is, because people are so important!
I would love to shoot you! If you are interested in a portrait session, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also do natural headshots. They are not on my website, but you can contact me for samples.
I really hope you enjoy your stay, and that you're having a lovely day. :)
