About Me

About Me

I am a natural light, storytelling photographer, who specializes in baby, child and family photography. My passion is for capturing everyday adventures; whether this involves showing off a much-loved toy, participating in a favourite activity, or interacting with the people who are important to you. I love having a starting point for a session and then seeing how our time together develops.

About Me-3

When I am not busy being a photographer, a mom, a wife and a fitness enthusiast, you can find me in my classroom. I recently moved from working with grade seven students with learning disabilities to a grade one classroom. I suppose you could say I have a knack for working with kids. Although, running a classroom is easy when compared to shooting a family with two kids under five and a dog! It’s a good thing I am organized, have a great sense of humour and a lot of energy!

About eighteen months prior to my first son being born, I began taking photography courses, playing with my camera more, and shooting for the people I care about. Once Kane became a part of our family, I found I was constantly documenting his life; whether it was the story of his stay in the NICU, his hospital journey or details of our everyday adventures. Two years ago, we added Maverick, another cute and crazy little boy to our family. I love capturing Kane and Maverick filled with wonder as they figure out a new skill, experiment with how something works, or interact with friends, family and our dog, Indy. The opportunity I have had to shoot Kane and Maverick and their baby buddies has enabled me to further develop my skills and define my style.

About Me-2

Another passion that has developed since having Kane has been photographing premature babies and medically fragile kids. I feel families deserve to have these “normal” life experiences.These shoots can be emotionally quite tough, but I wouldn’t give them up for anything. I currently volunteer with Ronald McDonald House and The Madden DeLuca Foundation. To see samples of my in hospital sessions click the link. Please contact me if you know of a family with a child in the hospital who would appreciate the gift of family photos.

Below are my goals for each session, regardless of whether it is as a volunteer, for my family or for a client.

I want each family I spend time with to have beautiful photographs of moments throughout their lives.

I particularly love being able to capture babies, kids and families as they grow and change.

I strive to provide a fun, relaxed session for kids and, hopefully, their parents, too!

I know our sessions will be remembered with a smile.

I look forward to meeting you and your family.

  1. I really commend you for photographing for families with sick or dying children. What a wonderful memory you are helping them create.

  2. Very poignant and truly honouring and touching piece about your Dad and the issue of mental health. You’ve illustrated the dilemma many have about the topic, the compassion one needs to accept the results and the integrity you have to continue to move forward. I am so sorry for your loss, and thank you for your words, which I will share.
    Sincerely – Sheri Long

  3. I may have said this before, but I think the fact that you particularly want to photograph “medically fragile” babies is lovely. I’m sure the families of these children really appreciate that little bit of ‘normality’ it brings them. (Writing as an ex-medically fragile baby (congenital heart defect – still a slightly medically fragile adult!)). Also, again. love your photos! I have a ridiculous number of B but they’re mainly not online. She is a very photogenic baby!
