ABOUT

Thanks for taking the time to look at my work and find out a little more about me. I live and work in London, Ontario. I am the mother to three very active little men, a yoga instructor, an artist and photographer.
 
Photography has been part of my life for twenty four years now. I consider myself crazy lucky to have explored so many different aspects of this artistic medium. From pinhole to digital and everything in between. While most of my commissions are offered in a digital format these days, I have a darkroom in my basement and still shoot and process film on a regular basis. I offer a variety of photographic options for you, your family, your business or your creative endeavours. My client images are vast in their range of subject matter. Maternity, family, dance, yoga, headshots, event, artistic stock photos and fine art print collections. While I do offer colour images my real passion is for B&W (as you can probably tell from the portfolio images I have selected)
 
In addition to commissioned work I am also offering workshops on photography in a few different areas.
 
-Basic natural light photography (learn to use your camera to create the images that inspire you)
-B&W film photography, processing and printing
-Basic bookbinding and collage
 
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, comments, or if you are interested in a workshop.
 
 
 

SESSION INFO

Every session is as unique as the subject that I am photographing. I photograph on location or in studio with natural light. Both have their benefits so that is something that we can discuss when we are designing your session.
 
TIMING
Regular sessions can last anywhere from 45minutes to 2 hours depending on what kind of images we are trying to capture (not to mention the attention span of my smallest subjects) For newborn sessions I would suggest setting aside at least 1.5 hours in order to allow for feedings, naps and the occasional calming walk or bounce around the studio. Feel free to bring along snacks, music or toys (anything that will make you and your little ones comfortable)
 
CLOTHING
Although we can tailor the session to your specific needs there are some basic rules that help to create beautiful and timeless images. I usually suggest avoiding busy or overpowering patterns as well as any text that might be on your clothing. Keep it casual. Make sure to wear something that you are comfortable in because you never know what the session might require. For Maternity sessions you want to make sure that the pants or skirt that you are wearing will sit nicely below the belly. Yoga pants work really well. Your top should also sit nicely above the belly, pre pregnancy tank tops sometimes do the trick. Again this is something that we can discuss so that the images are uniquely yours.  For Infant sessions you really can’t ask for anything better than baby skin. Medium tone pants are a good option but I would suggest photographing your little one topless as it really keeps the focus on their beautiful little features and expressions.
 
FEES
The session fee is due on the day of the session. Either cash or cheque is accepted.
 
Print orders must be prepaid.
