Who is the lady behind the lens?
Hi everyone, I am so glad that you found me! I am so honoured that you are here, and truly humbled that you are considering having me capture your story. I am drawn to soft, bright and magical images, and love love 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 little brother Graham. 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. What can I say, I’m a hustler baby… 😛
I am a wife and mother to a new baby boy, a strong-willed 4 year old daughter, and a spirited 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), 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. 😛
Did I mention I love to use emoticons? 😛
