Meet Me

I am a portrait photographer working exclusively in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, and I’ve been running my photography business for over 5 years now. I am a graduate of the University of Waterloo (Bachelor of Arts, Arts and Business, Honours Fine Arts), receiving both the “Fine Arts Award of Excellence” and the “Photography Award” from the university during my course of study. In my third and fourth year, my body of work was centered around photography. I also graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University (Bachelor of Education) where I quickly realized that being a teacher is not even close to my cup of tea, and I’d rather leave that job to those who are passionate about it.

My love affair with photography began after my grandfather gifted me with his old Nikon film camera in high school. I remember being hooked by the fascination of creating “artsy” photos with my friends and eagerly waiting for my film to be developed at my local photo shop.

When I’m off the clock, I can be found creating a life with my husband of 7 years and our young daughter. We like to get outside and find beautiful new spots to explore in the woods with our Brittany Spaniel dog, Addi, watch Netflix (obviously), and fulfill our major sweet tooth cravings.

We are very committed to our extended families, and we spend time visiting my family in Toronto, and Mitch’s family in Michigan as often as our schedules let us. The best part about all of this is that I serve a God that I have placed every ounce of my faith in and I am absolutely certain that I will be led and guided by His plan for my life – always.

So happy you are here and I am already excited to meet you.
