My favorite photos

When you do something you love, it's not really work. We all have heard that saying. And for me it is really true. For those of you who have meet me in person, you how much I love what I do and deep my passion for photography runs.

Most people when they get home from work, kick of their shoes, put their feet up and forget about the day they had at work for those few hours before they head back to the office. They turn on the T.V, read a book, spend some time with the family. Any thing to take their mind off work. NOT ME.

Photography started as a hobby and I transitioned it into a business years ago. So for me, during my down, one of my favorite things to do is take off with my camera and work on a personal photography project. I have done lots of these in the past and am always finding something neat to work on. I believe it keeps me on my toes and gives me new and fresh ideas to introduce into the studio for my clients,

One of my favorite projects was a few years back. I as at Rock Point Provincial Park in Dunnvile and spent hours photographing large pieces of drift wood that washed up on the beach. The waves where nice and steady, creating some neat action shots. During my post production editing, I turned the images black and white and amped up the contrast and grain, giving the images a nice, strong dramatic look. I have printed many of these and have them hanging in my home and  have created printed canvases as gifts for the holidays. I often find myself revisiting these images.

NOTE: it is best to shoot in colour and then convert the images to black and white. Colour images hold more information. You able to adjust the level of gray for each colour. It is always a great idea so you can have your choice of both options down the road.

Here are some of  my favorite images from that project










To this day, this image is my favorite image ever taken.

Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir.

Boudoir. 
It's exciting
It's inciting
And it's confusing and intimating all at the same time! 

If you are thinking about a boudoir I'm sure you have some pretty big questions on the top of your head. That's fine. I mean it's not everyday you are standing half naked in front of a perfect stranger. 


So you have questions... I've got answers.








Q: Boudoir. Pornography. What’s the difference?
A: Well for starters Boudoir is suggestive, while porn is... well you know. And you don’t have to be complete nude or revel anything at all when it comes to boudoir photographs. One of the most important things about being sexy is being confident. If you feel that way wearing jeans, by all means, wear jeans! Or a button down men’s dress shirt. Sure why not? Classy, suggestive, and flirty.

Q: Can you Photoshop my images?
A: If you would like to have say, stretch marks, a scar, that unwanted, embarrassing tattoo from when you were 16 removed. Sure that is do-able. If you want…

A little Session with Picture Perfect Props

If you are a family in the Niagara Region and have small children, it is more then likely that you have heard of Picture Perfect Props by Mich. In fact, she is probably a household name for your family. Having been open for the past 8 years, I have worked with Mich a great many of times and have come to know her, not only as a business woman but as a friend as well.

Over the past few years, Mich and I have gotten together to a variety of different sessions together that have been offered to the public. One of our favorites is our outfit showcase session. We did this last year and had such a blast, we did it again this year. We draw a few different children varying in age to model some of the outfits, tutus, headbands and other products available in Mich's store in Welland. This year we have over 300 people enter the contest!! HOLY SMOKES!!

We always have fun during these sessions and so the families! Here are some of the adorable images we got during this years session.













Next year …
