Your family means everything to you. You want to hold on to the fleeting moments that pass all too quickly. Tiny expressions that define who they are, the way they move their hands when they talk, how they play with each other and with you.

Hello, I am Bobbi Barbarich, an award-winning photographer from Nelson BC. My work focuses on how to capture the essence of your family's relationships. While we might spend a few minutes creating a posed portrait, that's not why you'd hire me. You want images that will bring you back to this time in their tender infancy, their exuberant toddler curiosity, their awkward pre-teen years, their bodies as they morph into adults, and your parents as they begin to slow down.

I grew up in northern Alberta, dreaming of a travel photographer's life as I meandered in wheat fields and tried to take pictures of bugs and barbed wire. I've now been a professional photographer for 10 years, attending college in Edmonton, Alberta and moving to Nelson BC thereafter to photograph people living their lives to the fullest.

While I didn't grow to become a travel photographer, my curiosity about life and illustrating with my camera did lead me to something I feel is more important: the lives we live every day. Let me capture that for you, so you and your future generations can cherish it as you do.
