My Story, My Why

My passion for lifestyle photography began when I was young, as a way to document our family moves (I'm up to 30 so far) and changing family dynamics (whose family isn't a little complicated). I decided to further pursue my passion, and in 2016, I graduated from the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO). I also had the opportunity to teach the Part-Time Photography Darkroom course at SPAO following graduation, while also pursuing various art projects. My style has a documentary feel, and I focus on who you are as a family, and the things you love doing together. The real, the raw, the messy, and all of the things in-between. Family shoots take place in your home, or in one of my go-to locations.

I'm a mama to two rambunctious boys under four, a lover of early mornings, light in any of its forms, bonfires (I wish I could forever smell like one), and cats (don't worry I love dogs too). I value moments that are real and vulnerable: the way the light enters your home while the kiddos are still asleep; the energetic screams at a child's birthday party; the way your newborn nuzzles into your chest while the toddler runs circles around you. I specialize in intimate family, maternity and newborn sessions. This is my jam, my bread and butter, my absolute passion.

I look forward to getting to know you!
