"We are surrounded by flaws and yet consumed by flawlessness; this never-ending need for perfection.  But we’re not perfect, even the most beautiful things are flawed. Life is flawed, and that is its perfection to me, the need to appreciate what is as it is while I’m present.​"

STEPHANIE MACGILLIVRAY

fine art portrait photographer

Photographs are such an important reminder of the beauty in the world around us.  They conjure up feelings of happiness & remind us of the times that have passed.  We go through this life so quickly, often forgetting to document what we love the most; Our families, our fur families & ourselves.  One day when I'm old and grey I'll relish the moments passed looking through old albums that I've created for this purpose.  

I've been a photographer for the past 6 years, studying at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design from 2013 to 2015 graduating with honours.  I've been cultivating my craft since then as well, pursuing projects to better my skills, taking on work as a second-shooter, & participating in an internship with the base in Gagetown (a collaborative effort between NBCC and the military).

I love fun and natural moments, but also love taking my time working through a concept to capture fine-art portraits. 

I love family, food, flowers, sunsets, glitter & all things shiny! I also love to travel!   If you have any questions regarding a session with me send me an email & I'll be sure to get back to you asap!

why betty rose?

I chose the name bettyRose for simple reasons.  I had a great-Aunt Betty, my mother blessed me with a middle name in honour of hers.  She was a blind artist & after nearly going blind in my right eye & having multiple surgeries to salvage my vision I have come to appreciate the world with an intensity I did not know before.  My vision while not technically better, has significantly improved; I can see clearly now and that has shown me what is most important in my life.  I chose the rose because it's my favourite flower. I find the scent of a rose to be completely and utterly intoxicating (it's a shame I haven't planted any rosebushes yet).

The world is all that much richer and vibrant because of life's experiences, and I've got the photos to prove it.
