About Me

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved. – Ansel Adams

After nearly 9 years of dating, I married the love of my life. We live in the suburbs but I need to feel green grass between my toes and country air filling my lungs on a regular basis. I love nature, more specifically, I love Spring – the snow melts making way for all the fresh green grass and budding flowers ready to making their debut. But my favourite season is Fall – the crunching leaves underfoot and the crisp air just cool enough for a sweater makes me deliriously happy.

I love classic movies but my guilty pleasure movie is Empire Records. And when I am sick, all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a blanket and pile of girly romance movies starring the girls – Sandra, Drew and Julia. But entire series of TV shows fill my DVD cabinet. I love 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Firefly, Buffy and Castle. However, I still cherish the Sunday evenings I spent watching The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show with my Dad.

I am a homebody who oddly enough, loves to travel to great lands across the seas and oceans. That being said, I do not travel light. Even a weekend escape consists of a bag of clothes and three bags of gear (mostly camera equipment of course)!

I love Skittles, Cadbury creme eggs, hot apple cider, Sharpies, Post-it notes, blankets and carbohydrates. I love all these things but I love photography so much more. It fills me with a joy that I cannot describe as words are not my forte – photographs are. I would love to use my strength to photograph you, your family and your day and provide you with memories and photos YOU will love.
