“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”

Paul Caponigro

BEHIND THE LENS

Professionally, I started off in the world of photography on the other side of the camera. I was very fortunate to travel internationally as a model learning about the camera, lighting, styling, and tricks of posing from the best photographers. 

 

Being so far away from home, with the realization that I would possibly never see some of these places or people again started an obsession of needing to document my experiences. This began my passion for photography.. needing to capture moments to share with others.

 

Now decades later, I have settled just outside of Toronto. I have two beautiful children and an incredible husband that continue to inspire me to see the world through their eyes. Which in turn changes the way I see it through the lens of my camera. I have a passion to capture true innocence, pure emotion, love, and life within people.

 

I love engaging people in my photos, and find it absolutely rewarding knowing my clients are happy when they see themselves the way that I see them.
