the artist

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 pre-schooler and two fluffy white dogs, while I juggle my roles as a 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).

the tiniest little beings have the biggest influence on our hearts


My photography style is timeless, emotional and real. I'm all about direction and making sure everyone is photographed in the most flattering way, but I promise not to set up any poses that scream 90's cheese! Ha! I want the memory of your session to be one of comfort, of relaxation, definitely fun-filled but also of touching sentiment that your family legacy is being recorded with creativity, consistency and professionalism.

my goal is to create art for you that will last generations


When I am not working with my clients, I volunteer my time as Area Coordinator (for the Greater Ottawa Area) and Affiliate Photographer with Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep; 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.

did you know...

  1. 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!
  2. My favourite TV shows are Grey's Anatomy, A Million Little Things, This Is Us, The Bachelor, and basically all the medical dramas. My PVR is always stacked with several options.
  3. 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.
  4. My favourite treat is the original Cadbury Cream Eggs! I sometimes hoard the easter eggs so I can have some in the off-season!
  5. I am still very close with many of my childhood besties xo
