the tiniest little beings have the biggest influence on our hearts
Hey there, I'm Emily and I'm so glad you're here! When I don't have a camera or a computer in front of my face you'll find me wrangling an energetic 5-year old and two fluffy white dogs, while I juggle my roles as mama to the greatest little boy, a wife to the most supportive husband ever, and an entrepreneur with the best clients in the world.
I am a baby whisperer. I am an artist. I am a leader. I'm also a dog-lover, a pasta fanatic, and an admirer of all things cute.
I am an Accredited member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), having received my accreditations in both Newborn Portraiture (2015), and Child and Infant Portraiture (2017).

my goal is to create art for you that will last generations
My photography style is timeless, emotional and real. I'm all about direction and making sure everyone is photographed in the most flattering way. I want the memory of your session to be one of comfort, of relaxation, definitely fun-filled but also of pure sentiment that your family legacy is being documented with creativity, consistency and professionalism.
When I am not working with my clients, I volunteer my time as Area Coordinator (for Eastern Ontario, Ottawa and Gatineau) and Affiliate Photographer with Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS); a non-profit organization offering remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a new baby. I was drawn to this organization because of the invaluable gift that the service provides, but also because of the growing demand for photographers in the Ottawa area.
If you are a photographer and are interested in volunteering, I encourage you to reach out to me. I am always happy to provide more information and to guide you along the application process.
I am quite talented at sight-reading piano music.
As a teenager I was hired to fill in for the church organist on occasion, and it would stress my parents to no end when I never EVER practised!
I LOVE medical drama TV shows!
My favourite TV shows are Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, The Resident, New Amsterdam, 9-1-1 and basically all the medical dramas. Throw in A Million Little Things and The Bachelor and I'm all set--my PVR is always stacked with several options.
The moment I knew I had to work with babies...
My very first job as a teenager was working as a cleaner in the maternity ward and nursery at a local hospital. That was when I knew that in the future I needed to find a career working with babies.
I have a sweet tooth... but who doesn't?
My favourite treat is the original Cadbury Cream Eggs! I hoard the Easter eggs so I can have some in the off-season!
