Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
— Ferris Bueller

Truth is, I’m a photography nerd through and through. I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with portraits for as long as I can remember, influenced by the likes of Herb Ritts, Vivian Maier, David Bailey, and Annie Leibovitz. To me, faces tell stories that encapsulate the essence of an individual. For the past 11 years, I have proudly grown my business and have continually invested in my education and in current pro equipment to hone my craft. A reputable photographer like myself brings industry knowledge, time, creativity, quality products and personalized service to the table- all of which are key ingredients in creating photographic art that will stand the test of time!

In my own home, I have the prettiest yellow cabinet that houses my now overflowing vintage camera collection, many of which do still work and inspired me to learn how to develop and print my photos in the darkroom! Long before I became a photographer I printed every single photo I took and to this day they are still in albums or boxes. Even now, nothing beats the feeling when I open a package of prints and see my work staring back at me. It just never gets old. This is what I want for you, everlasting keepsakes of your memories that you'll cherish, hold in your hands and admire on your walls, or pass down as albums to your kids, not just files that sit on a hard drive or fill your social media. You and your loved ones are so much more than simply digital files.

When I'm not working on photo commissions or personal creative photo projects, I take art mentorships and classes, immersing myself into mixed media work such as collage and encaustic. I’m active in the local handmade community as a member of the Flock and Gather Collective and I'm also a board member of the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra, a volunteer run organization. I’m a super proud mum of a young violin musician (going on 8 years!) who plays in the Saskatoon Strings. I love art, thrifting for old, smelly cameras, film photography, the eighties, learning new things, music, and having a good laugh with my amazing friends. Without them I’d be a bit lost, they are my family. At the end of the day though, home is what makes my heart the most happy. Together with my love of 18 years we are raising one incredible teenage human.
