I am so honoured that you have taken the time to get to know me a little better, and truly humbled that you are considering having me capture your story. I am drawn to soft, bright and magical images, and love working with couples and families who are fiercely in love. I have a wild and adventurous side, and take a fun and natural approach to my work.

I began my photography journey in 2007 while backpacking in Greece & Turkey with my brother. I have always had an unquenchable thirst for storytelling and adventure, so once that spark was lit there was no turning back!

I actually went to school for life sciences. I have an undergraduate degree in Biology from Queen's University, and a masters degree in Medical Biophysics from The University of Toronto. I know, right? I've worked in the field for 10 years, doing Flow Cytometry and Microscopy (basically imaging really really small things on a microscopic scale).

I am a self taught photographer. I learned through mentors, online courses and workshops, and tagging along to weddings as a photography assistant. My first solo wedding was 2009, and my business grew quickly from there. I started photographing upwards of 20 weddings a year, plus engagements, families, newborns and events.

I am a wife and mother to a 2 year old boy, a strong-willed 5 year old daughter, and a spirited Lab/Shepherd rescue pup. I love them all fiercely, they are my world. <3 I love travelling (I've been to Vietnam, Cambodia, Greece, Turkey, Austria, London, France, Spain, Italy, Cuba, Dominican, Mexico, half of the American states and almost all of Canada to name a few), getting out and exploring, and all things nature. My favourite foods are cheese, chocolate, and peanut butter cookies. YUM. Healthy, I know. I guess kale is ok too. :P Did I mention I love to use emoticons? :P

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see, and everything to do with the way you see them.”
