Hi! I’m Lindsay and I’m the owner/operator of Dashuri Photography. One of the most common questions I’ve been asked is “What does Dashuri mean?”. Easiest way to put it, it means “Love” in Albanian, which now, when translated, the name becomes “Love Photography”. It made sense to name the company after what brings families together most: Love.
Growing up, my mother took pictures of everything I did, and I mean EVERYTHING! By the time I was a year old, she had 12 photo albums documenting my first year. When I was younger, I thought it was excessive; but now, those memories will last me a lifetime. I’ve always had a passion for photography – taking pictures of everything around me growing up. I got my first digital camera in 2006 after my son was born, and I never looked back! In 2015, I decided to take the leap and try my hand at photography as a business.
Under the branding Lindsay MacKenzie Photography, I started offering family sessions as well as maternity and newborn sessions. Two years later I branched out to include weddings and events as well. 2020 brought the global pandemic and industry shut down which I took as an opportunity to take a break and start fresh.
There have been lots of changes in that time; I’m now married to my wonderful wife, Elizabeth (who you might see as my assistant sometimes) and along with my son Ethan, we share our busy home with four cats, Freddie, Phoenix, Luna & Harlow.
I look forward to the opportunity to share in your joy and most of all, in your Love.
