• 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.

Maternity Contest Winner (chatham-kent maternity photographer)

Well…. I kicked off this big new adventure of bellies and babies with a big contest! The lovely Caitlyn was our grande prize winner of a maternity and newborn session to document the special arrival of her beautiful little girl Everleigh. (blog post soon on her newborn session) Everleigh is a much welcomed and long awaited addition to this little family after some difficulties her parents faced this is a little bit from her contest entry.

“My husband and I have been trying to have our first child for over a year now. We’ve joyfully celebrated two positive pregnancy tests that weeks and months later turned into the mourning over two angel babies.
Our hearts have been broken, but not our hope. 
Finally, it seems, we have our rainbow baby- our sign of hope and renewal despite the storms we have weathered together. Pregnancy is a completely different experience after losing two others within a year’s time. Have you ever heard an expectant mom brag about her morning sickness?  Every symptom of pregnancy has been welcomed as a sign that this baby is growing strong! I wake up thinking of my baby, and go to bed praying for his or her health. All I’ve ever wanted is to be a mom, and finally, my time has come.
How wonderful it would be to be gifted such beautiful photos and memories as we prepare to welcome Baby Miller this March. “
I do have to say I was more then thrilled to provide this mama the gift of photos that she can cherish forever and remember this journey and the beauty surrounding it and their love for each other.

 This year of 2014 has already been full of so many blessings and I am so happy with the way my business is growing and evolving. A new website by the amazing Hub Creative who put my vision of myself and my business into a wonderful new brand and blog site. Lots of hard work always pays off and I appreciate every single one of my family members, clients ,teachers and friends who support me along the way. This has defiantly been a great “journey” so far and I hope it doesn’t stop anytime soon! Sooo In the words of a fav little tune of mine “don’t stop believing” for real don’t do it don’t ever stop 😉
