A little about me

I have a passion for people, nature and photography, so naturally, it only made sense to pursue my dream of being a portrait photographer with a focus on incorporating the best aspects of the outdoors in my images. I like to keep things ‘real’ with an adventurous spin, and I love capturing those special moments between people, no matter the occasion.

When not behind the lens, I work as a Registered Nurse. I’m lucky to be able to balance both my career in healthcare with my passion for being a portrait photographer in my hometown of St.Albert, Alberta. Vancouver island is my second home, I just can't get enough of the luscious greens and fresh ocean air. I have a huge soft spot for pets, kids, and travel. I have photographed throughout Alberta, Canada. and internationally.   While my main business is in portrait and lifestyle photography, l can't resist the beautiful landscape views we have here in Alberta and I'm often found hiking and taking photos around Canmore and Banff, Alberta and exploring new places with my dog, Sophie.
