So...why did I become a photographer?
- About Me
I'm a lifestyle photographer based out of Barrie, Ontario Canada. I NEVER thought I would be a business owner or working in a creative field (shoutout to my environmental studies and Spanish degree!) and yet here I am! My photography journey started as I watched my family grow. As nieces and nephews started to add up I found myself thinking of my mum's gigantic rubber maid container, almost bursting with old photos of me and my siblings as we grew up. I started my own project of wanting to document my family as it grew and changed. I wanted to start a big photo album so that I can flip through it when I'm old and wrinkly. And now I want to share this project with you! I love taking a candid approach to capturing life's moments. I tend to use prompts instead of poses while I shoot so that I bring out the most genuine reactions and expressions between my clients. I LOVE natural light which is why most of my sessions take place outside. I’m a roll with the punches type of person.
It starts raining? No problem! Here’s some umbrellas!
Kids not feeling the session? Let’s capture those screaming tears - cause let’s face it, being a kid is hard.
When life gives you lemons - you know?
I'm also a lover of cats (I have 2 - Weenzy & Merlin, aka 'the boys') , a movie nerd, coffee fiend, and I LOVE to travel! I try and live an environmentally conscious lifestyle as much as I can and I love a good thrift store find! If I had the space I would have a shed where I would repurpose old furniture like desks, chairs & small tables for fun.
My friends often hear me before they see (I'm a loud hand talker.) I love a night in with a great board game (Wingspan is my current favourite!) just as much as a patio drink at the pub with great company. I'll listen to any type of music with the exception of country and heavy metal rock - don't hate, they're just not my thing. My editing jams are podcasts, music, or a tv show/ movie on in the background.
