Self Portrait on Martha’s Vineyard, July 2019


Hello! All the business books would tell me that this current profile pic is too serious — but, look, the light was glorious and I love how it got framed in my arms. So for now, this picture stays. (But trust I normally look less posed.)

A few essential things about me: I have a BFA in Photography circa 2005… when the world still operated in film. I once co-owned a sewing atelier in the Monkland Village of Montreal called Emeline & Annabelle and I spent a good ten years in the digital marketing & project management space before I returned back to photography professionally almost three years ago.

My husband Dave and I met when I was bartending in an Irish pub in downtown Montreal. The benefit of being with an Irishman is spending summers on the Irish coast and understanding what’s the craic. We have a couple of beautiful kids and do our best to find balance between our individual passions, quality family time and growing our businesses. I’m lucky to have my passion intertwined with my business.

We had our wedding weekend in 2014 up in Mont Tremblant, photographed by Joel & Justyna. A former skeptic about creating a big to do about ‘myself’, I realized after our own wedding that you can never plan for the magic felt in a room filled with people you love. That occasion seldom happens and can not be underestimated. As I get older and more Life happens, you realize just how swift it can change. I stand by occasions that celebrate those you love. I also love to photograph them.

As a wedding photographer I do my best to live out a couples story, to be hyper present, to frame what feels artful but real, and find the light that really helps build on the feelings of the day. I love how unique each day I’ve photographed has felt and feel honored to have been an active participant in their celebration.

There is always always so much more but that’s a sum of some of my parts.
