Hey mama! I get it!

You’re at a time in your life that you want to bottle these moments. You want photographs that aren’t cheesy, rather something that looks and feels natural.

When I had my first baby, I thought I needed images of him in a bucket dressed like a fox. What does the fox say? Well, my fox was one unhappy baby and looked and sounded nothing like what I wanted to remember him by. I wanted images of just him with no crazy distractions. When I began photographing him in a more natural way, I quickly realized that these are the images that tugged at my heart strings… this was the real him.

“Sometimes, Less is More.”- William Shakespeare

Although I love a good swiss, I don’t do cheese! I use minimal props and natural elements for all of my sessions. My studio is a neutral palette, where families can come relax. They can be photographed on my studio bed or couch, hang on my wicker swing, or gently rest their newborn beside my sunny window.

More about me, you ask?

Well, I am a wife, a mommy, a Boston Terrier’s best friend, a tea lover, a DIY enthusiast and a “little ones” portrait photographer from Edmonton, Alberta.

I have been photographing newborns, babies and moms-to-be since 2010 (and sorry, I don’t do weddings! If only I had a dollar every time someone asked, I would have buckets of dollars!)

I fell in love with photography the minute I picked up my dad’s SLR camera when I was three. With a click of the shutter my first piece of art was nothing but the dashboard of our GMC pickup truck, not a majestic sunset or proud mountain goat. After years of practice on willing and unwilling subjects, I discovered the rewarding world of newborn photography. With my patience, and some say “baby whispering” skills, I love the challenge that learning this niche has brought me. In the last couple years i’ve put another notch on the old belt by learning the art of filming and creating beautiful videos of not only my own family but of other families. A photograph can speak volumes but adding a film clip with my images creates this extra special way of bottling moments and putting it to the next level. 

My little family, which consists of my high school sweetheart, my two growing sons, and our famous dog Archie the Boston Terrier. After watching our little guys grow so fast I understand the importance of capturing them during each so-very-cute milestone. I keep reminding myself to throw in a couple shots that will embarrass them on their wedding days! 

I photograph with timeless neutral tones and natural elements that will never go out of style. I want my photographs to be a true piece of art I would hang in my own home, but will become your own family’s treasure.
