Thank you for visiting my website.

I am not great at talking about myself, but I do think it’s important for you to know who I am to make sure that I am what you are looking for in a photographer.

I am a mom. My children are everything to me. I’ve been blessed with 3 boys, a nine-year-old and a set of 6-year-old twins. I love lattes, I love hot yoga, and working out at the gym. To say that I love shopping is a bit of an understatement. For some reason, I am obsessed with jeans, definitely my favourite piece of clothing. I love traveling and prefer “doing” trips over “relaxing” trips. What I love about traveling is seeing as much as I can of the place where I am and learning as much as I can lear about that place and its culture. I’m not one who enjoys to sit by the pool for hours, although I do love the hot weather 🙂 I’m terrible at saying no. I cannot lie and if I do lie, you will know instantly, thats why I’d rather not.

To me, photography was always one of my ways of creating memories. I’ve been around cameras since I was a little girl. My dad is an architect, but has always loved photography; I remember he had this closet full of slides and a projector. We would get together with our family on the weekends to watch slideshows, mostly architecture shots that he would take when he travelled, but also family pictures. That closet is still at my parent’s house, still full of the same slides and prints. That closet brings back the best memories of my childhood because all those things that I can’t remember as a child, are inside it in the form of either a slide, or a print…

Artistically, I love street photography and candid shots. I love moody B&W images with great lighting. I don’t get a lot of time to do this much but it is definitely a creative outlet for me.
Photography has become a very important part of my life, especially now that I have a family of my own. I love being able to capture moments, but what I love most about photography is that feeling I get when I look at those moments I captured.  My work has been recognized internationally by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) and featured in publications such as Calgary’s Child Magazine as well as Birthing Magazine.
I only book a limited number of sessions per month as being a mom to 3 little boys keeps me quite busy. I like to make sure my clients get the best possible customer service, therefore, I try to make sure I only take on the work I can handle.

Please be sure to send me a note if you have any questions or would like more information about sessions and products.

Looking forward to hearing from you! 🙂
