I am a Photographer based out of Ottawa Ontario who specializes in Maternity, Newborn, Baby, and Family Photography
My passion for photography first started when I was a child and used to watch my dad use his 35mm film camera to capture special moments of our family. I still treasure those beautiful photographs. When I was old enough I got to borrow that camera and I spent so many hours photographing everything, especially my pets.
My passion grew even more after my son was born. I was so amazed by this little person that I wanted to capture every little detail. Almost three years later my daughter was born and I decided to leave my job as a customer service manager of 10 years to stay at home with my children and start my photography business. I feel very lucky that I am able to stay at home and have a career that I absolutely love!
I know many of us (myself included) don't like or hesitate getting in front of the camera. I will help you overcome this! I will be there every step of the way - if its advice on what to wear or saying funny things to make you laugh during your session. Just try and remember that your children want YOU to be in the photograph with them. They want to cuddle, kiss and just be silly with YOU. Photographs are a precious gift we can give to our children so that they have special keepsakes to always remember us by.
Time goes by way too quickly, I look at my own children and I am amazed at how fast they are growing, changing and becoming these incredible little people. This is why I love what I do. Photography allows us to hold on to those precious memories when our minds can sometimes forget. I look at my own photographs of special moments of my children and I am emotionally brought right back to that feeling when I had the photograph taken.
I smile and even get teary eyed while I edit my clients' photographs. Seeing a mother gazing into her newborn's eyes, the joy in parents' eyes as their baby is being photographed - it all brings me back to how I felt when my children were babies. I love being right there in that moment with my clients.
When I'm not behind my camera or in my office editing, I am spending time with my family. I love to sing and dance and act silly with my children. We love to make messes by making up pretend recipes in the kitchen. We also spend as much time outside as possible. My favourite moments are at the end of the day when me and my husband spend time with our children reading bedtime stories, giving lots of cuddles and soaking in those precious moments before we kiss them goodnight.
