Natural, Urban & Creative Headshots • Kitchener

Sarah and I first met last November and had a fabulous time together, creating images for both personal and professional use. This summer, Sarah sent me a very sweet email … It was so magical doing headshots with you back in November. I would love to do a second round – of summery, arty headshots for more music promotion stuff :)

How could I say no to that?

Our first session date had to be rebooked because it was cool, windy and very likely to rain. It’s not fun having to postpone sessions, but it’s also not good to settle! Stay true to your photo vision and always, always go with your gut. Date number two was wonderful. Warm weather, glowing sun and locations that spoke volumes to what Sarah had in mind.

What I love about Sarah is that she embodies being carefree, easy-going, earthy and real. To dabble in both business/corporate and creative headshots, and to do so with someone like Sarah’s complete faith is an incredible thing.

All the best to you Sarah, as you complete your album and continue to help those in our community with your music and knowledge.

Business • Corporate • Headshots

Alistair needed to update his online visual presence and was looking for something simple, yet professional. He wanted something that he could put on his website and alongside online articles that would welcome readers. He understood that his current photo, a quick snap “just to get something” online, wasn’t cutting it and he needed something better. Yes! I know it isn’t always easy to set aside time for business headshots, but it’s vital to your brand. It’s imperative to your professional status to have something out there that gives a great first impression. Think about what it is you are trying to convey to your client base and we will get the job done!

baby myles

Oh, little baby Myles. What can I say? Your adorable, wrinkly little frown. Your full head of dark hair. Your wee rolls and creases. And those big, big eyes. Newborn sessions are my way of being a part of one of the most special times in a couple’s life together, and I don’t take this invitation lightly. I appreciate each and every one of these sessions… especially when they belong to family. You see, Katie, Myles’ mom is my youngest cousin. I remember when she was born. I can still picture her climbing all over the furniture at my Grandma’s house and running to me from across the room, expecting a huge toss into the air. Ah, toddlers.

Newborn sessions can be a wonderful mix of squishy poses and in-the-moment LIFE experience. Do you remember all those times you wanted to capture a certain look, frown, cuddle or kiss when your baby was only but a few days old, but couldn’t because you had yet to grow a 3rd arm? Yeah, me too.

Many thanks to Katie, Brad and little Myles for letting me be their 3rd arm, if only for a few hours.

Madison :: Creative, Artistic, Beautiful Spirit

I’m at a loss for what to write, and that doesn’t happen too often. I want to talk about how much fun I had with Madison while shooting these images. I want to share my insane level of passion and excitement I felt working on something different. But I also want Madison, and her lovely spirit and beautiful talent to speak volumes all on their own.

Madison, I wish you an abundance of good fortune and happiness as you follow your dream.
Thank you for allowing me to walk a few steps alongside you on this creative journey.
