A little bit about me
Growing up with a camera around my neck was brilliant! I thank my parents for gifting me with that first camera and for nurturing a lifelong passion.
After High School, I finished University, worked for a while, headed to Europe for a couple of months to backpack around and live in history, and upon my return decided to head to College for photography. That was the official start to this great photographic journey for me.
After I graduated with Honours, I worked for 5 years in a studio where I continued to learn and develop my skills. I met and photographed people of all ages; worked in snow, rain and sun; and travelled and helped to produce a wonderful book about amazing women across our great country, Dare to Dream: A Celebration of Canadian Women. Photographing weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, baptisms, families, official events at the Governor Generals, The Chateau Laurier and the Corel Centre (now The Canadian Tire Centre), gave me experiences that offered me the opportunity to grow, not only my talent but also my understanding of people and what makes them smile. After returning from living in the United States, I relaxed my work schedule to enjoy my young children. Now, as they grow older, I am growing back into spending more time with that lovely camera around my neck.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my images. And perhaps you, your space or your family will be who I focus on next!
Things I think, think about & other tidbits…
I absolutely love to travel. The things there are to see in this world, the people there are to meet and the cultures there are to experience are amazing and endless.
Fav place to hang: cottage…Muskoka, Canada
Tim Tams are delicious. Thank you, Australia.
I love to drive. One day: Autobahn.
You can never go wrong with a handwritten letter.
Art is fantastic. Spending the afternoon at an Art Gallery soothes me.
I could watch the silent dance of the Aurora Borealis all night long.
Give me a good book any day and I will always have Grand Adventures.
Thai food has outstanding flavours.
If I could spend all day swimming in a lake, I would; and sometimes I do.
Music is essential.
I will rise early and without complaint for few things. Two would be: catching a flight for a holiday & going paddling.
When there is a camera around my neck, you will find a smile on my face.
