• Welcome to Open Shutter Photography!

    Coming from small-town Ontario and being old-school in every sense of the word, I enjoy things in life that have true lasting power; pyrex, canning, traditions and, of course, the perfect shot!

    My specialty is Lifestyle Photography …..Weddings, Maternity and Newborns; all the real tear-jerker stuff! Being a lover of all things sentimental, I understand the true importance of capturing those magic moments that make life extraordinary. Extensively trained in newborn posing, safety and natural lighting, I take the well being of your little one (whether it be in the form of a bump, or the baby that’s already made its arrival) with as much care as I would my very own; creating timeless images that capture those fleeting, adorable moments forever.

    I want to create an experience for you that is really enjoyable, and that makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera. I want to take pictures of you being you! Pictures that you will look back on and remember, not only for the faces and love, but for the fun we had taking them too! I, myself, am a sensitive, romantic soul who has married the man of her dreams. Together we have created three little angels of our own. Living and Loving through our crazy life is an amazing adventure that I am so happy to be a part of. Life passes us by so quickly, it’s important that from time to time we stop to smell the roses and take the poses.

Weddings are a longtime love of mine, I will never stop photographing them!  From the details, to the constant smiles and love every where.  I cannot get enough.  I leave the day exhausted but grinning from ear to ear.  Seeing what each couple has planned to make their day special and unique to them is exciting every single time.  No two weddings are exactly alike, its never boring!  Another secret favourite part of the day for me are the speeches! Hearing how much people care for the special couples and the memories they share always draw Something even more special to me is when the honour of capturing these memories is for friends!

Is it spring yet!? One of my favourite seasons, inspiration and beauty everywhere.  New life, a fresh start and warm sun! What I wouldn’t give for some warm sun!   Just like in everything around us inspiration in the newborn photography world is plentiful!  Daily I am inspired by my photog crushes.  Inspiration pushes me in many ways, to try new things and step out of my comfort zone.  Challenging me to use a new colour that I am not usually drawn too. Or to add something as simple as flowers to a setup.  Channelling that inspiration and making an idea your own is the best part of being inspired. Getting those creative juices flowing and coming up with something totally and uniquely original, and 100% you. Because after all being you is the most inspiring thing of all.

This images inspiration By Erin Tole   one of my amazing photog crushes… There is a lot of pressure these days being a well recognized photographer in the world of social media. With tons of fans and followers, all with loads of opinions on what your saying and doing I’m sure.   Not gonna lie.. someday I hope to be one of them haha. For now I will keep working hard and learning everyday pushing my creative limits. I for one really appreciate these photographers putting themselves out there sharing their art with us.  I say again.. INSPIRING us all:)
