Documentary Family Portraits

Hugs, tears, messes and giggles. Capturing magical moments for natural family portraits.

I’m a mother myself and my absolute favourite photos of my children are the ones when they aren’t looking and are busy going about their everyday lives. Candid shots – these are the type of images I prefer because they have more meaning and are brutally honest. To do this, I ‘shadow’ your family while you go about your daily routines. I will not ask you to pose, nor give you much direction. I am looking for those real photos that speak to me emotionally. Going skiing? Heading to the playground? Making a pancake breakfast? I will be there ready to take those action shots of your family in the moment.

Furry Friends

Fun, happy, drooly photos.I miss both our family dogs. But, we’ve decided to wait until our kids are a wee bit older before getting another furry friend. In the meantime, I’m getting my kicks out of photographing other peoples pets. Be it dogs, cats, horses or whatever – I get to play with them, pet them, go mountain biking with them, throw a ball, hug them, and kiss them lots.

Every furry friend is special and most have big personality. For dogs and cats my photos are bright, fun, and happy that show your pets’ character. I also create fine art portraits. Horses look amazing with this type of portrait work and certain dogs as well. Whatever the end outcome, I take the time to get to know you and your furry friend to help you decide what would be best. Like kids, animals often have the attention span of a gnat. I work with your pet using positive reinforcement letting them lead the way so I can capture that funny smile, or perpetual gaze. My photo sessions are not rushed and I will probably spend 2-3+ hours getting that perfect shot for you.

Action Sports

I am an outdoor person and I’m not afraid of inclement weather. I love taking action photos of all sorts of activities that I am into: mountain bike, skiing, snow-boarding, off road riding, motocross, road, cyclocross, equestrian, hikes, backcountry etc. I use professional gear (camera, lenses, strobes) that can withstand cold, rain, dust and heat. And, no matter what the conditions I will be there. I am available for events, commissioned works, editorial and for taking photos to make you look like a rock star! Many of my photos have been published in national magazines, and blogs while others are currently hanging in work establishments across Canada.

Interested in booking a session, or have questions? Need a price list? I’d love to hear from you. Real Life. Real Photos. Real Time.
