My mission is to capture little moments in time that create timeless, treasured memories for a lifetime. I do this through taking photos of family, maternity, newborn and couples — all with the same goal of telling your story authentically, in whichever chapter your life is in at the moment. Currently, I shoot photos in the Durham Region including Clarington, Port Perry, Uxbridge, Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax and Pickering.

After more than 15 years as a photojournalist, I decided to focus on family photography. I didn’t have to shift too far though because I’m still telling stories with my photos, except now the story is of your family or your newborn baby. I absolutely love being able to capture images that fill one with emotion every time they look at them. Whether it’s the pure innocence of a young child or the joy and laughter of kids playing with leaves or chasing bubbles. The tender moments between a parent and child, or the bond between siblings. Genuine moments. The story of your life.

As a newspaper photographer, I used to love just being a fly on the wall and observing life as it happened. Documenting moments in time and being able to show people what they normally wouldn’t be able to see. I love being able to bring those same skill sets to family and newborn photography. Capturing the little slice of life moments that wouldn’t normally be documented. The everyday moments that make the best memories. The baking of cookies or the storybooks read, or the shouts to push higher on the swings at the park as the biggest grin takes over your child’s face. I would love to be able to capture those special memories for you.
