The Artists

Rebecca Paine is an Edmonton photographer and digital creator specializing in commercial and lifestyle photography. 

Since graduating from NAIT’s Photographic Technology program, she has worked with local businesses and organizations such as Zoe’s Animal Rescue, Yelod Ice Cream & Bake Shoppe, Paramo Cafe, & White Rabbit Ice Cream. 

Her photos are intended to capture and immortalize moments and ideas that may not be clear to the naked eye.

Principal Photographer, Manager

She is looking to highlight local businesses through social sharing that may not necessarily get the attention they deserve. You’ll often find her sampling up-and-coming eateries throughout Edmonton and the surrounding area while capturing appetizing food photography to showcase their amazing creations. 

Rebecca is passionate about interacting and wants to connect with her clients on a personal level. She is always excited about bringing a unique idea to life, no matter how ambitious – especially if it brings great joy. Being able to deliver photos that bring excitement and joy is the greatest reward for a professional photographer, besides being paid of course!

When not taking photos, you can often find her struggling at local climbing gyms, studying Computer Science, or spending time with her chaotic cat, Penny.

Twyla Lapointe, BFA enjoyed a career as a brilliant photographer with a diverse portfolio, specializing in event photography. Beginning her career in 2007 and graduating from the U of S with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2010, she chose to retire from professional paid photography in 2023 after 16 years. You can now find her pursuing her true passion: Events. 

Twyla is thrilled to be passing Admire Studios on instead of closing.

Owner of Admire Studios and Photography Mentor

As a professional event photographer who also offered portraiture and architecture with a focus on corporate and non-profit work, Twyla has served the City of Edmonton, Explore Edmonton, the Province of Alberta, the Lt. Gov of Alberta, NAIT, Canadian Blood Services, Tim Hortons, and hundreds of other satisfied clients.

Twyla has always found other people to be fascinating – to look at, to learn about, to get to know – to photograph. Now she is so excited to have found the perfect person in Rebecca Paine to continue the work of Admire Studios. 

When not working on events, she’s still out creating community and networking up a storm! Or sometimes playing Dungeons and Dragons in worlds unknown, visiting fantastical worlds in books, TV, and movies while her excitable whippet Murphy is curled up beside her.
