If you had of told me back in high school that I was going to grow up to be a photographer, I wouldn't have believed you. I had dreams of becoming a police officer, or a social worker - something in the realm of helping others. In a sorta/kinda way, that's exactly what I ended up doing. Photography is capturing love and happiness, and I believe that love and happiness can save the world!

I am in the business of capturing the perfectly imperfect. There is something so savory about capturing a raw moment of beauty and immortalizing it for my clients. I am inspired by the souls I photograph and their life's journeys.

I love natural light and prefer to use the sunshine or a beautifully cloudy day whenever I can get my camera on it. My style is a mix of lifestyle and traditional portraiture. I love quirky, natural and fun images; the small moments or details that go unnoticed by most, are what I look for when I am capturing memories.

I love shooting portraits. Through every stage of life, portraits commemorate our journey and all of the destined connections we make along the way. The word 'portrait' often brings about feelings of classic, natural or elegant and soft, but can also be funky and fun and playful too! The sky is the limit when it comes to a photography session, and it is my joy to photograph the moments that make your heart sing.

Based in Niagara, Ontario, I am available for weddings, engagements, celebrations, lifestyle portrait sessions of families and children, pregnancy, fresh 48, newborn itty-bitty's, furry friends, high school seniors and more throughout Niagara, Hamilton, sometimes Haliburton County, and all areas beyond, betwixt, and between.
