AboutX


You might know me by Victoria, but really, I do prefer Jae. I live in Toronto, where I am co-owner, assistant film director, and lead photographer at Layer One Creative and Lux et Fortis.

I’m also a puppy mama, an awkward YouTuber, an avid video-gamer, and I frequently quote stuff I watch, but can never remember where the quote is from. I try to live by Romans 12. I love grey sweaters and black leggings, I have way too many tubes of lipstick, and I rarely brush my hair. Oh, and if we’re listening to music I know, there’s a 90% chance that I’m singing the harmony part.

As a visual artist, whether I am filming or photographing, I seek out beauty and joy. I love a slightly cloudy day, a tickle of wind, and a lot of laughter. I am blessed to work with some of the most awesome clients ever. Seriously, most of them even find me funny – when we shoot, I promise we’ll have a bunch of inside jokes by the end of it! I’ll direct you and pose you, but I seriously love what I get when you’re just doing you. You’re darn good-looking, and I aim to prove it to you.

Check out my portfolio for some of my latest work, and my blog for more of what I’m up to. Glad you stopped by!

[cover_boxes title_tag=”h2″ title1=”Romans 12:9-21 ” text1=”I owe my life to Jesus. It is because of Him and what He’s done for me that I am where I am. To say I’m eternally grateful would be an understatement. I love because He first loved me, so I strive to live by the words of Romans 12:9-21 to prove it.” target1=”_self” title2=”Master Magoo” text2=”The love of my life is a fluffy black Havanese puppy named Lord Paddington Magoo the First, Esq. He is absolutely the definition of happiness on four furry legs. I love everything about him. He is guaranteed to make you fall in love at first meeting.” target2=”_self” title3=”The way to my heart” text3=”I love, love, love to eat. In my ideal world, I could eat all the dim sum I want, drink all the bubble tea I could have (lychee please!), and snack on barbecue eel hand-rolls all day.

[cover_boxes title_tag=”h2″ title1=”So many colours…” text1=”…and my wardrobe consists of grey sweaters (and shirts!) in more shades than the book, and black leggings. I do wear colour, but grey is such an easy choice. That’s not a bad thing, is it? I don’t think so. ” target1=”_self” title2=”Just face it” text2=”I adore makeup and beauty. I have a self-diagnosed addiction to lipstuff, and more foundation bottles and eyeshadow palettes than I need. And let’s not bring up nail polish (for your sake). I do not regret any of it.” target2=”_self” title3=”Sing me sweet” text3=”In the past five years, I have not missed a single Matt Nathanson show in Toronto. His lyrics are so poignant, and his humour is so like mine can be – crude yet relateable. And he has a song for every mood I’m in.” target3=”_self” read_more_button_style=”no” image1=”21947″ image2=”21948″ image3=”21945″]
