I am a Canadian photographer, and visual artist who now enjoys the slow life on beautiful Hornby Island. After an interesting and super busy career shooting in Toronto, I am happy to be living a much quieter life. Most days start now with getting our girl off to school in "town" on the early ferry. After that, my husband and I usually have a nice cup of tea before walking our big goofy dog on the bluffs by the ocean.
We are happy to be living a peaceful, connected life as a family here on the west-coast. My husband has time to bake all our bread, and I love to garden, when I am not busy with some photography project I usually have on the go.
Recently I published my exhibition collection, "Hornby Girls" as a book. Currently I am engrossed in a long term Fairy-Tale project I look forward to publishing soon.. if I can ever stop thinking up new things to shoot already! Each creative shoot leads to a new idea..and so it happily goes. What matters most to me is the journey.

- EDITORIAL STYLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY -
I have combined twenty years of commercial and fashion photography experience, with the decisive moment sensitivity gained from shooting over 1000 weddings in Canada and abroad.
I am pretty serious about what I do..but I have a lot of fun doing it.
I would say that I am driven by a love for the unscripted moments. I always aim for a beautiful combination of sensitive portraiture, and editorial flair. Being a visual story-teller is probably one of the most satisfying things about shooting weddings. Every story is different, and I love the creative challenge of telling yours.
I am always so happy when a couple tells me how thrilled they are with their photos. Nothing is better than that for a photographer!
I would love to help tell your story.
