I am Alexandra Medd, a wife, mother of three, and your photographer from Time+Tide Photography.
Initially, I pursued my bachelor’s degree in Child and Youth Care and became an outreach worker and family counsellor and then we had our first child and I became a stay at home mother.
Shortly after this transition my husband gifted me a camera and I began documenting our journey into parenthood through a hobbyist’s lens. By the time our third child was born I had taken several courses and become more experienced with my camera and my hobby developed into a business.
I was drawn to newborns and quickly discovered I could bridge my experience as a CYC worker and love of family dynamics with my photography and include family portraits as well. After taking online safety courses for newborns and mentoring with local and distant photographers online in 2016 I started my professional photography business.
In the beginning of 2018 I opened my first studio space where I now invite families in to create unique portraits of their most cherished memories. I can also be found outdoors laughing with clients in a session capturing their family’s unique connection.
My Vancouver Island Photography studio is located in Qualicum Beach BC and provides service to clients from Nanaimo to Courtenay and beyond, but I happily to travel to other areas for my clients and their vision.
