My career as a working photographer began when I was a journalist. It often occurred that I would abandon the pen in favour of the camera, in order to adequately express my need to tell stories through photos. I feel very privileged to ‘tell the story’ of memorable moments of your life, capturing all the beauty and authenticity of your environment, while enjoying the freedom of expression and creativity that I experience through photography.
As a kid, I was a nerdy tomboy who devoured books and played kickball in the street. I used to page through my dad’s dusty old National Geographic magazines, falling in love with certain pictures. I would clip out my favourites with scissors and remix them as collages. … A marble statue jutting out of a black lava field. A boy with grimy hands holding a bouquet of radishes. A girl changing the oil under her pickup truck. A fisherman’s wrinkled grin. … I think looking through those pictures is when I first fell in love with photos. I didn’t start taking photos until I was an adult. While working as a French-to-English translator, I enrolled in an evening photography class for fun. And got hooked. I quit my day job in 2013 and now I spend my time meeting new people, shooting their weddings and making beautiful family photos. I offer photojournalistic style photography for families who want natural family photos that don’t involve posing. During day-in-the-life photo sessions, I follow you and take candid photos as your family spends the day together. This session can be as unique as your family. Make it your own by including activities that are part of your family’s story. You can include family routines like a favourite meal or a popular bedtime story. You can include the kids’ sports, a backyard play session or a family BBQ. You can include a special outing to a place you love to visit or simply stay in your cozy home all day. Documentary family sessions are longer than typical family portrait sessions. This allows the kids to become accustomed to my presence and play naturally. Grown-ups also usually need some time to relax in front of the camera. These longer sessions allow real moments to develop spontaneously. This way, your family’s unique personality can shine!
My work focuses on the joy and wonder that come with exploration and showing family members how they love and are loved by others. I listen more than I talk and find people completely fascinating, so I try to show this through my photos. Apart from being the owner of Moment.us Photography, I'm a wife, cook, traveler, bibliophile, and prosecco drinker, and I'm a master at rationalising the decision to have cake for breakfast. I'm based in Cornwall, ON but have dual citizenship with the UK, and try to travel over there - and elsewhere - at least twice a year. My own love for exploring our world means that I'm drawn to making photos that show what happens when we engage with the people and the world around us. I shoot from the heart and try to show each of my families what the soul of their family looks like through allllll the mood swings of childhood. I dig families who show tenderness and glee, but also mischief - it's not uncommon to hear me giggling quietly behind my camera while someone gets themselves into trouble. Parents with wry humour and a realistic outlook on what it's like to survive the chaos of childhood while their children run around in mismatched (or absent) clothes? They're my favourite. Parenthood is TOUGH. So, I try to honour parents by showing them compassionate and humorous little reminders of the fact that they're doing their best to keep their tiny (and not-so-tiny) humans alive and every day.
