I do not tolerate discrimination of any form, including but not limited to gender, sex, sexuality, race, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, marital status, religion, ability, or age. I welcome and celebrate our differences. Fatphobia has no place here. All bodies are deserving of love, attention, and photography.
I have been working with Janna from Behind the Blush for almost 9 years! I am so fortunate that I get to work with her on a daily basis & that she gets invited to join me for almost all of my travels all over the world. Janna is often seen on my social media & plays several roles within the company. Whether it be professional hair & makeup, styling, & even performing as a wedding commissioner- she wears several hats and is a huge asset to my business. She is also hands down the funniest person you will ever meet.
I'm So Happy You're here!
I'm a photographer based out of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, but willing to travel worldwide (no seriously, I insist you bring me with you!). While I went to the University of Waterloo for Environmental Studies and Human Resources, ever since I can remember I've always had a camera in my hand. As both an extrovert and a creative, I consider photography to be my love language. I'm energized by the people I work with - I love getting to know you and capturing moments that are meaningful to you. My biggest goal when you work with me is to help you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Everyone deserves to have beautiful photos of themselves and have fun while doing it!
