Why Blam?

My name is Blair-Marie and for as long as I can remember my older brothers have called me Blam (BLAir-Marie). While I am not really sure where it originated (I fear it may be what I called myself as a toddler) it stuck. I am now “Auntie Blam” to my nieces and nephews so when it came time to choose a business name, Blam Photography just made sense.

What do I do?

As a photographer, I aim to deliver bright, fun and playful family photos that you will be proud to hang in your home. My ultimate goal is to capture the beauty of an ordinary life.  I achieve this by walking the line between portrait and lifestyle photography.  In practice, this means that a photo shoot with me often means a leisurely stroll through the river valley with the love of your life or simply playing with your kids in the park. I try not to bribe smiles with candy.  Those who have worked with me have probably seen me dance, sing the paw patrol theme song, or make car alarm noises to illicit a genuine smile from an unsure kiddo. They will tell you a session with me is relaxed, without pressure or obligation to model…because you’re not a model…you’re an amazing everyday person and I firmly believe your photos should reflect and celebrate who you are.

A little more…

Aside from a photographer,  I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and together we have 2 children, Jacob & Madison, a Spaniel cross named Stella and an orange cat named Shredder. I have a degree in Psychology, love coffee and messy buns and believe firmly in the beauty of an ordinary life.
