Jinky – Cambridge Children’s Photographer

A few years back I stumbled across a website that literally had my jaw on the floor.

Barb Uil of Jinky Art has the most wonderfully creative mind that I think the children’s photography industry has seen.  Her photographs evoke imagination, curiosity and whimsy and coax the inner child to come out and play…if even for a moment.

I was lucky enough a few weeks ago to attend a Jinky workshop which was being held here in Ontario.  A rare occurrence for this Aussie to travel to our neck of the woods.  When I heard the news I was all over it.

We all were eager to crawl inside the mind of this woman to find out what makes her tick.  How DOES she create these breath taking images?

The thing is….creativity can’t be taught.  It is something that stirs deep within your soul and I’m afraid either you have it or you don’t

I would like to thank Barb for being ever so humble and sweet and for sharing herself in the raw with all of us.  I’d also like to thank the ladies of Casa Duna.  You know who you are.  I made some great friendships that I hope span through my photography career.

I was going to share some images from the Jinky workshop.  But instead I thought I would try and exercise my own creative mind and share with you a shoot I styled and shot on my own after I returned.  After all.  Creativity can’t be learned.

Here is me – a wee bit “Jinkyfied”
