My style of photography is to create a stress-free environment for everyone involved. Whether it is a newborn session, or a family session, I don't have any "rules" or expectations, I simply aim to capture connections and interactions between family members, and precious memories of your children.
I never think of my sessions as "photoshoots", rather, I like to think of them as playdates. I get in there with the kiddos, and we have a great time. From sitter sessions to family sessions, my goal is always to bring out your family, and your child's personality, and to create an enjoyable and stress free photoshoot for all involved!
Welcome to my crew! I'm a mom of 3 boys, so I totally get the chaos involved in organizing and getting a photoshoot together!
My boys are aged 6, 5, and 2, and my husband and I could not be more fortunate with the lives we live and the family we have created. Because my two older boys are so close in age, I ended up stepping away from my career to raise them. As a mom, I have a newfound love for photography, and I absolutely love my new career. I currently hold a Graduation Certificate in Portrait Photography at the New York Institute of Photography, and have attended workshops in person and online with world renowned newborn photographers. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), as well as the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) and the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI).
In addition to photography, I am a certified car seat technician, with the CPSAC association in Canada. If you ever need help picking out a car seat, or having one installed, give me a shout! Doesn't even have to be photography related! I'm always available to chat!
(Family) photos are invaluable, and no one ever regrets getting photos done. As a parent, I know the stress involved in getting a photoshoot organized, which is why I take care of everything from start to finish. In studio, I have a client wardrobe available to your children, and for family sessions, I provide a style guide after booking. My photography style is play-based and I consider my sessions to be more of playdates with your children (and family), rather than a photoshoot. You create the memories with your children while I capture them for you. I would love nothing more than to be able to provide you with these cherished memories of your children, and/or family, to be passed on for generations.
When it comes to my pricing packages, I don't believe that clients should have to pick the "best" photos in their gallery, which is why I consider myself an "all-inclusive" photographer. You will receive all images from most of your sessions with me. I do however offer certain sessions at a lower price point (for clients looking for a more budget-friendly option), which offer a reduced number of digital images you receive. By default, all sessions with me are considered full sessions, unless otherwise requested. Gift cards are also available for purchase if you would like to purchase a session for a loved one, or ask a loved one to purchase one for you for a special occasion.
