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.

An entry about Weddings, tagged as

We had a great time with Jessica and Dan as they celebrated their wedding in Manotick. More to come, but here are a few I couldn’t wait to share!


Jessica + Dave: Engaged

An entry about Weddings, tagged as

Jessica and Dave are getting married in September, so we got together for a summer engagement shoot to break the ice…sorta (they were both at Allison’s wedding a few weeks back :)ƂĀ  The field near their home provided the background, and the two of them provided the love for this later afternoon session.

See you in a few weeks guys!


A Year in Emily’s Life, Session Four


I’ve had so much fun getting to know Erika and Michael and their growing family. It all started four years ago, with the first session for their son Christian. Over the course of that year we created some of my all-time favourite image, culminating in Christian’s album.

When Emily came along we picked up right where we left off, and created even more great images for her Year in the Life. And now, we have Emily’s last session, and we wanted to make it a great one. So we all met up at Saunder’s Farm and had fun exploring playgrounds, waterparks and super-slides!

Thanks for always making me feel like family, guys!



An entry about Portraits, tagged as

I first met Julie and Michael six years ago, when I photographed their engagement and wedding. I’m happy to say that over the years we’ve stayed in contact, and now they have a beautiful daughter, Jordana. We met up at the Arboretum for a family shoot, as Jordana is already running around šŸ™‚

Congrats on the beautiful family guys!


A Year in Jack’s Life, Session Three


I enjoyed a sunny and warm summer afternoon with Jack near the Ottawa River…oh, and Melissa and Pete were there too! šŸ™‚ This is Jack’s third Year in the Life session, and I can’t believe how much he’s grown already!

Polly was there too of course, but her fur coat meant lots of panting šŸ™‚
