            A collector of moments. A lover of seconds. An observer who appreciates the little things.

Hi! I am so happy
you are here
. photography is about:
Lifestyle, Portrait Development and Emotive Composition

Each session is custom and meant to capture moments 
in time for you.

My work includes: 
weddings + engagements + couples
- large + small family photos
- professional head shots
- interiors + commercial projects + creative collaborations
- events and more-

Take a look through my
featured sessions each session

 is custom with the
intention of
having your story documented well.
What that means is that

I love the seconds in between the moments
when you think I am not photographing,

as well, when I am...

it is not about perfection

it is about creative storytelling through my lens.

Most especially, I am in love with the realness
that makes my client's stories their own through,
what I call, "photographic storytelling".

    I am very proud to
document all types of unique and blended lifestyles.



 Toronto, known as Treaty 13 in Canada, is my home. 
I am a mother of 3 children and I get to share in this beautiful life with my adoring partner, Eric.
Academically, I hold both a B.A and a B.Ed. degree, with a specialty in Visual Arts. 
I have also earned a Master's Degree in Holistic and Aesthetic Education.
cally, I studied photography during high school, while at university working in darkrooms developing my own film watching my photo enlargements come to life, and today, I continue to take photography courses to stay super-fresh ;)
At the age of 8, when my mother handed me a camera for the first time to photograph a family event, my love for capturing still imagery began and since that time my camera has been by my side.

Send Me a "Hello" today! I'd love to hear about your story...
