Family Photography in Winnipeg - Lucas & Alison at Assiniboine Park

This was a really fun family photo session in Winnipeg with great friends, Lucas & Alison! Their kids are, shall we say, "high energy." 🏃🏃🏃
Think your kids are too hyper for family photos? Fear not! We'll become fast friends, get goofy, and the great shots in your personal gallery will capture their explosive little personalities!

Doreena & John - Wedding at Lakeside Park, Port Dalhousie

Blended - like fine wine!

On a hot, sunny day last summer, Doreena & John got married and blended their families.

They did it all at family-friendly Lakeside Park and kept it simple & casual, yet meaningful and intimate at the same time.

The result was a pretty amazing day, complete with a ride on the carousel! 🎠

It’s an absolute honor, and also super fun, for me to capture and tell the visual story of a day like this.

What's the vision for YOUR wedding day? I'd love to hear about it; just drop me a line!

Family Photography in Niagara Parks

With the trees budding and the birds singing away, I'm pretty pumped for family photography season! Getting outside, having some fun and shooting in natural light are what it's all about.⠀⠀

I had a great time with the Huang family as we explored the beautiful grounds at the Botanical Gardens in Niagara Falls, stopping to play and even smell the roses - literally! - along the way.

Niagara Parks offers a ton of fantastic scenic and family-friendly locations for perfect photoshoots. Want to know my faves? Drop me a line!

The world is our studio! Got a favourite spot where your family loves to hang? I’d love to hear about it.


Katie's Christmas Gift

Last December, I received a very nice email from Katie, a high school student. She wanted to give her parents a special Christmas gift - a family photo session!

What better gift could a parent possibly receive? (I know, as a family photographer, I’m a little biased ….. but I thought this idea was just delightful. And they were delightful, too!

It was a cold day, but we had a great time at a favourite park - a location they specifically chose because of special family times shared there in the past. Great Christmas memories that will last for years to come!

Kathy & Jeff's Family @ St. John's Conservation Area

When these friends contacted me for a colourful Fall photo session - we quickly agreed on St. John’s Conservation area - a lovely hidden gem in Niagara, and a favourite spot for their family, and mine too! I was hamming it up with their kids in no time… we had lots fun, and the result was a fantastic gallery of photos telling the story of quirky kids and loving parents.

Fall is a beautiful time for family photos! Drop me a line, and let’s get out there and have some fun. You’ll make great memories and will have the terrific photos to show for it!
