Celebrate yourself with captivatingmodern Portrait Photography


There is a power in having your portrait taken.

Whether done for yourself, for someone else, or for the memories, it's an incredible experience.

for you;

Captured genuinely a portrait is a celebration of yourself. It's about capturing that part of you that you're most proud of. It's about being unique, inspiring confidence, and feeling beautiful.

for someone else;

The gift of a portrait is exceptionally personal, given only with the utmost of love. Reserved for family and only the closest of friends, I don't think there are many gifts more meaningful.

for the memories;

There are people in our lives that we want to cherish forever. That we always want to be able to look back on. I want my portraits to last generations so that the people I capture are never forgotten.

My passion for photography evolved from a genuine want to help people see the best in themselves. From wanting to help people feel great about themselves. I want to empower people, and I take pride in being able to do this for so many people. I would love to also be able to do this for you.

People are my passion,photography simply the tool.

My Style

Going back to my love of helping people feel amazing about themselves; I want my images to be one hundred percent about the people I capture. My work isn’t about the story, or the scene, it’s about the person in the image. About making sure they are seen.

I do this using prevailing elements of minimalism and simplicity. I remove everything in the image, save the person. If you notice one of my images, it is only because the person in it is worth noticing. If you think my images look great, it's only because the people I work with look great in them.

North Bay, Ontario

I’m a professional photographer, who is also military, which means that photography is a passion that travels with me wherever the military sends me.

Currently, this means North Bay, Ontario... a beautiful city four hours north of Toronto and west of Ottawa.
