I'm a photographer, and this blog is all about sharing my work. Through the images presented here I hope you'll experience the fun, energy, honesty and emotion I have been entrusted to document.

I specialize in the photography of family history because I love to create memorable images of real life, both for you and for your entire family. If that sounds interesting, drop me a line. Iā€™d love to talk with you.

Until then, welcome.

A Year in Huxley’s Life, Session Two


Looks like we got Bee and Shawn’s maternity session done just in the nick of time, because not a week later little Huxley was born, almost 5 weeks early.Bee-Shawn-Year-In-The-Life-Ottawa-Baby-Photographer-009 Bee-Shawn-Year-In-The-Life-Ottawa-Baby-Photographer-033 Bee-Shawn-Year-In-The-Life-Ottawa-Baby-Photographer-018 Bee-Shawn-Year-In-The-Life-Ottawa-Baby-Photographer-039 Bee-Shawn-Year-In-The-Life-Ottawa-Baby-Photographer-059I look forward to getting to know this little guy over the next year šŸ™‚


A Year in Huxley’s Life, Session One


“I don’t want anything boring.”

I love it when I hear someone say that. This is what Bronwyn told me when she called me up asking about a maternity session. She and Shawn were married a few years ago and now that they are expecting, they decided to get some maternity photos done. “But nothing boring. I want them to be interesting.”

Excellent. Now as it happens there is a tree that I have had my eye on for a few years, and I decided this was the session to put it to use. It’s a huge tree that is still alive even though it has split down the middle, and I have been saving this for an outdoor maternity session. So off we went.

Once we were done in the tree, we took advantage of the field nearby…

Lisa + Shaun are Married


Lisa and Shaun enjoyed an intimate wedding at the ever-charming Perth Manor. The weather was great and the family and close friends that were in attendance were in high spirits to see these two get hitched.
