"Taking pictures is savouring life intensely, every hundredth of a second."


My role as your photographer is to be the visual narrator, documenting the look of adoration you give your partner, or the way your toddler grabs your cheeks with their chubby hands, and yes even/especially the moments that seem less-than-perfect, because give me raw and interesting over perfect any day. Because I'm aiming to capture real connections and interactions, we'll spend some time getting to know one another prior to and during your session -- this is to help you feel more comfortable with me and give me a sense of who you are and what you want to remember about this time in your life. Nervous about being in front of the camera? I’m with you! I get so awkward when the camera is turned on me but it will all be okay, promise. Our time together will feel like a mix of us hanging out and me being a fly on the wall. I'll guide you, at times, but will also make enough space for your story to shine through.
