Welcome to my website thanks for stopping by!
"Since the very beginning, Natasha has always known she was born to be on the stage. Now at 21 and a recently signed SONY Recording Artist, she see's her dreams coming true, with her new pop band, PRTY H3RO."
I had the incredible honor of working with Natasha Zimbaro on her new promo photos- her are her mom are the sweetest most down to earth people, this girl has got it all, the "DRIVE AND TALENT" singing in front of thousands of people from the age of 13 ,she's got the "LOOK" I mean come on... she is stunning, and the personality. Triple threat.
Natasha has had an incredibly busy and exciting past few years, working, songwriting and singing in numerous places, such as Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, all over BC, the US and in the UK! Natasha has been to Nashville twice. The first time, she had the honour of writing and collaborating with her then manager, Jason McCoy…as well as Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Willie Mack, Denny Carr, Scott Baggett and many other incredible artists! The second time, she recorded some of her original songs at the world renowned Dark Horse Studios, with some of Nashville's top session musicians! And in 2010, Natasha was involved with Simon Cowell's hit television show, The X FACTOR, in the United Kingdom. She made it into the Top 16 girls and had an amazing time. It was and experience she won't soon forget!
National Anthem singing has been a big part to Natasha's singing journey. She started singing Anthem's when she was 14, for her local hockey team. Little did she know, she would go on to sing the Anthems hundreds of times! She sings regularly for the Abbotsford Heat and Vancouver Giants. She has also sung numerous times for the Vancouver Canucks, BC Lions, Vancouver Whitecaps, Vancouver Canadians, Chilliwack Bruins, Coquitlam Express, Langley Chiefs, Surrey Eagles, Aldergrove Kodiaks, UBC Thunderbirds, SFU Hockey and BC Titans. As well as singing for the RCMP Musical Ride, BC's 150th Birthday Celebration, Hastings Race Course, CFL Grey Cup Train Tour, Edmonton Eskimos, Toronto Blue Jays, Anaheim Ducks, the Monster Truck Show and five times for the San Jose Sharks!
Natasha is currently working hard with her new pop band "PRTY H3RO". In April of 2013, Natasha and her band signed to SONY Music! A life long dream of Natasha's. Their hits "Life of the PRTY" and "Young and Shameless" are now available on iTunes!
TIME flies especially in today's world where everything is CRAMMED into days, hours and minutes in order to get the most done in one day as we possibly can. We all have times in our life when we think "I wish". Think about how fast children grow up, if you have children of your own you know this all too well, people say all the time "Enjoy the little moments it's goes by so fast" It always makes me sad when I hear of people who have never had professional family portraits done, it's a storytelling, memory at different times in their lives as their families and children grew. Portraits to tell the story of what they liked to do together, that portrayed their unique bond and personality. Portraits that tell the story of their relationships - from the total dependence of an infant to the teenage years and beyond when our children have their own children. Think about if our grandparents and their parents before had never taken photographs, what would we have to look back on remember them and teach our children about their lives? SO YES it's a PAIN..... A HUGE PAIN I know, to coordinate 4 or 5 different families and their schedules, in-between nap time and work and swimming lessons, but it makes my heart smile to know that my client's like The Russell Family will have these photos to look back on forever. We took these photos at Quail's Gate | Okanagan Estate Winery.
"He said I've been watching you dad, ain't that cool I'm your buckaroo, I wanna be like you And eat all my food and grow as tall as you are. We got cowboy boots and camo pants Yeah we're just alike, hey ain't we dad, I wanna do everything you do So I've been watching you."-RODNEY ATKINS-"watching you"If any of you have heard that song, it always brings a little tear to my eye, there is nothing sweeter then to watch a little boy look up to his Father and want to grow up just like him. When it comes to this newborn session this song is a perfect match. Meet "Exton" he was 9 days old when I got to photograph this tiny 6lb. little man, cool name right? It was his mommy's grandpas middle name, I love when the names have meaning! I have known Joel and his family for over 23 years, OMG If that doesn't make us feel old!! lol. Exton's mom and dad both grew up living the farm life, riding horses, playing polo.... grandma and grandpa have 19 horses at their farm, and I'm sure Grandpa Dan is already itching to get little Exton on top of one sooner than later! So it was only fitting that we dressed him up like a little cowboy for a few hours. Enjoy your sneak peek of your little Buckaroo.
