  1. Humpback Whale Watching Adventure

    22 Jul 2020
    These photos are from summer 2018 and I have JUST (thanks to covid-19 and having copious amounts of time) gone through and edited the whole set.  It was so much fun to revisit them!    So, in the summer of 2018  I was working at the Stephenville Theatre Festival in Stephenville,…

  2. Virtual Photoshoots - Connecting in Isolation

    06 Jul 2020
    For three months during the onset of the covid-19 pandemic it wasn’t possible to do photo shoots of any kind in person.  It was risky, frowned upon if not technically illegal and also, I had left the city and was staying with my parents, far away from my usual photography…

  3. Floating Fabric Shoot

    30 Dec 2019
    This was a photo shoot that had been rattling around in my head for some time.  I love seeing images that combine dancers with beautifully flowy costumes.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to put together flowy costumes for this particular shoot, but I wondered if just having fabric to…

  4. It’s a Wonderful Engagement Shoot

    10 Dec 2019
    I cast Vince and Genna as George Bailey and Mary Hatch in last years production of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” at The Lower Ossington Theatre.  They are both immensely talented and a pleasure to direct, but in addition to that I thought that they would have…

  5. Lexie Stavro Dance Shoot

    30 Oct 2019
    I had photographed a number of musicals that Lexie was performing in and my eye was always drawn to her as a performer onstage.  Whether it was as creepy kids toy in Mary Poppins or a Newsie flipping across the stage and performing flawless russians, she grabs attention.  We had…

  6. Cape St. George Picnic

    09 Aug 2019
    I’m spending the summer working in Stephenville, Newfoundland, working for the Stephenville Theatre Festival as a performer, director and of course, photographer!   A group of us took advantage of a day off to drive to nearby Cape St. George for a bit of a picnic.  We ended up racing against…

  7. Puffs! Or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic

    04 Aug 2019
    I direct and photograph a lot of shows but every now and then one comes along that’s extra special.  Puffs is one of those shows.  The script is brilliant, my cast was incredible, the costumes, the tech, everything came together so beautifully.  Such a special project to be at the…

  8. Family Photos - CJ on the Playground

    09 Jul 2019
    This was my third session with CJ and her family.  Her parents, Mark and Michelle are friends of mine from University.   Every year around her birthday we’ve gotten together to do a fun shoot and I’ve really enjoyed getting to see how much she’s changed and grown year to year!…

  9. Cherry Blossoms & Dance in Trinity Bellwoods

    10 May 2019
    I was so grateful that Madison and Justan were able to join me this brisk, muddy May morning for a shoot with the cherry blossoms in Trinity Bellwoods Park.  For a couple of years I’ve wanted to shoot dancers with the blossoms but I keep missing the window, but I…

  10. Family Photos - CJ is an Artist!

    19 Jun 2018
    For CJ’s second birthday her parents Mark and Michelle wanted something similar to the fun cake smash we did for her first birthday, but different.  We came up with the idea of letting her go wild with (totally non-toxic, kid friendly, practically edible, super washable) paints.    We started with some…

  11. Autumn Dance Shoot

    01 Feb 2018
    On one of the last nice days of fall the lovely and talented Laura and I met up in Trinity Bellwoods Park to take some dance photos.  There were a couple of places in the park where the leaves were gorgeous and Laura is SO wonderful to work with.  I’m…

  12. Bright Lights big CNE

    30 Jan 2018
    A few months ago I visited the CNE for the first time with my siblings and their spouses.  We spent five hours walking around taking in the sights and the tasty food.  I brought my camera with me as I thought the photos of the midway lights might outweigh the…

  13. Over the Rainbow

    14 Nov 2017
    The Wizard of Oz holds a special place in my heart as it was the first musical I ever performed in.  I was 11 and was thrilled to be cast as Dorothy. I fell in love with performing through this charming story of finding yourself (after a Mom of one…

  14. Tarah’s Fall Doterra Shoot

    01 Oct 2017
    Tarah was looking to create some images for her various platforms about incorporating Doterra oils into your wellness routine.  I’m not a product photographer by trade but we had fun putting together a couple of shots of the oils themselves. (click on any image to see it larger) We also…

  15. Paint Splatter!

    16 Sep 2017
    So I’ve found myself with a little more free time this spring than I’ve had for several years, which has been really lovely.  I wanted to use some of that time to put together some photoshoots that have been kicking around in my head for ages but I’ve never had…

  16. Spring Blooms!

    16 Sep 2017
    I have a confession to make; I have never seen the cherry trees bloom at High Park.  I know that as someone who lives in Toronto spends a lot of time behind a camera that seems like sacrilege, but I’ve only known about the ‘peak bloom’ for a few years…

  17. Rainy day ROM

    16 Sep 2017
    We’ve been having such grey weather in Toronto the last little while- which I actually enjoy, for a day or two at a time.  It wasn’t quite raining the other day so I decied to walk home from a photo gig and stopped outside the ROM to snap a few…

  19. Graffiti Alley

    08 Jun 2017
    This summer I finally got a chance to explore Graffiti Alley.  I set up a shoot with Michele and Leilani.  They are two fierce, hilarious, talented women that I am very happy to call friends.  The plan was to dance and laugh and get some great shots with colourful backgrounds…

    10 May 2017
    My friends Mark and Michelle wanted to celebrate their daughter CJ’s first birthday with a cake smash shoot and I was so happy to make that happen!   We started with some family photos and portraits in an adorable little outfit that would not get covered in cake.  CJ is very…
