there are so many important moments in our lives – the birth of a child, FAMILY MILESTONES, celebrating a new marriage, etc. i love to capture these special occasions in an intimate setting and am excited to offer photography for moments like these, small gatherings and micro weddings. because I realize time with loved ones is so precious, i only take on 15 of these intimate sessions a year.  be sure to contact me for more info on how to book photography for intimate gatherings.


Travel and hospitality are fuelling and energizing for me as a photographer. The experience of newness gets my creativity flowing and allows me to see the specific details of my unique accommodations or the surrounding landscape in a fresh and exciting way – leaving me filled and inspired. I'm excited to be able to offer photography that INSPIREs WANDERLUST beyond our beloved local community.


I love to work alongside businesses and products built upon a similar foundation. Valuing things like community and connection, gathering with family and friends over good food, simple joys, time, quality over quantity, authenticity, and that appreciate photography with intentionality and creativity. It's a gift for me to be able to provide beautiful and compelling imagery that clients and consumers connect with emotionally through nostalgia and storytelling.


large weddings and events. 

work that takes away precious time spent with family and doing the things that truly matter.

companies that don't value quality and creativity and a collaborative environment.

What I'm not really interested in:

Creating meaningful imagery that clearly expresses the value and love my clients have for the product or service they provide.

Providing beautiful and compelling photography that clients and their consumers connect with by provoking emotion, telling a story, and allowing consumers to envision that life for themselves.

a collective experience where we find ourselves on the same page as we approach the work together in a kind and collaborative creative environment.

Creating a presence of professionalism and positivity that puts people at ease in potentially chaotic and stressful situations.

What I'm skilled + passionate about:

one of the things i love about travelling is exploring food. on our last trip we discovered the best dessert – Sticky toffee pudding. whenever i see it on a menu, i often get it purely for nostalgia's sake.

I'm a HAMILTON based lifestyle and intimate moment photographer, wife to my husband GLEN and Mom to our little Rors. (pictured BELOW!)

I find inspiration in community and connection, travel, food, and hospitality, and love to work collaboratively to showcase local businesses that share in these values.

When i'm not at work you can find me grabbing a coffee and strolling around the neighbourhood with a friend, watching documentaries, taking Rory to local markets, or dreaming up our next travel plans with Glen!
