I began shooting more seriously in 2010 and officially started my business in 2013 with a focus more on newborns, children & weddings. As a mother of three young children, I know how quickly life seems to roll by as they grow. I also know that as life rolls by, sometimes our memories of events and occurrences begin to fade and I take great pleasure in preserving these memories for generations to share.
I am based in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I have worked in a Veterinary Hospital as a Registered Veterinary Technician since 2002 (and still do!).
I love Coca Cola (a little too much!). I am an extrovert. I’m an introvert. (Weird how it can be both ways!). I have 3 daughters on earth and a son in the skies. I haven’t eaten red meat or pork since I was 11 years old. My favourite drink (aside from Coca Cola) is lemonaid. I have never eaten a cheeseburger. Ever. (or a Big Mac, Whopper, Quarter Pounder…the list goes on). I had my appendix out during an exploratory surgery because it had a stone in it (I sadly, did not get to see the stone!). I love anything to do with science and medicine. I love being on a boat. I hate the heat. I am afraid of going into water that I cannot see through. Most of my friends I’ve had since Kindergarten. I would love a dozen children! I am a huge believer in the Pay It Forward premise. I love doing random acts of kindness- I just wish I was able to do it all the time! But I do them as often as I can-I think what you put into this world is what you get out of it.
I love weddings- I would attend one every weekend just to see the décor and style and feel the love and commitment. Newborn cries do not bother me, I love hearing their little voices. I love their smell and snuggling them. Lucky me, I get to enjoy both with the help of my camera!
I primarily shoot babies, children and families along with weddings. What a life! I love it! I have a full studio in my home with an abundance of props and backdrops to which I am constantly adding more!
I also am a photographer of the Tiny Footprints Project. The project has photographers from around the continent who photograph babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) at no charge to the families. A typical newborn shoot is done in the first 10-14 days of life. The idea is that just because the baby (or babies) are in the NICU, why can’t they have photographs as well? Its a beautiful project and I am more than happy to be part of it 🙂
I have a passion for shooting “Love”; couples, engagements, weddings, pregnancies and families but sometimes I think there is nothing better than snuggling a new life and capturing these precious moments for others. I continue to work full time as a Veterinary Technician, while raising my children, but I will always make time to continue with my dream of creating art and capturing your moments. I’m so thankful to all the wonderful support I have encountered on my journey.
