NEW Studio sessions available soon!
Done! It took a while, but we are almost Done! The new home studio/gallery space creates a whole new feeling for us. I have been inspired by so many great magazines of artistic spaces and as well by fellow photographers and colleagues' spaces! So before the grand unveiling I need to plaster the walls with photos, so no sneak peak photos of the space yet.....(Sorry Jamie, I promise soon) HA!

UPCOMING ~ Limited edition sessions
So lots going on and coming up and I would need a full page to update you. But I'll keep it quick for you, Throughout the year I will be holding Limited Edition sessions around the city, including two of my favorite boutiques in town.

Be sure to wander in soon to WAG Doggin It Cafe on Bank Street and sign up your mom for a very special soulful session with her "fur-mate". What a wonderful Mother's day present, celebrating the family bond. Sessions will take place on April 25th, the sitting fee is $100 with a 20 minute urban session, the results are going to be stunning! Be sure to sign up soon there are only 11 spaces available, these sessions are going to be very intimiate and soulful, creating a piece of art for that special mom.

Coming in MAY is "Fur in the Family" was this your last official family photo? I am shaking it up a bit and going a little Urban with this one. A huge thank-you to friend and great photographer Deb Dekoke who loaned me this great vintage image of her family growing up on the Dekoke Berry Farm in kanata!

This two day event is a fundraiser for Ottawa Therapy Dogs being held at both Bark and Fitz Locations in Westboro and Kanata. Details for signing up are available at each Bark and Fitz location. Be sure to book your space soon. As soon as you are pre-booked and have paid your deposit with the Bark and Fitz location, I will be calling you to have a pre-session consultation so that we can go over some of the ideas and concepts behind your session time.

Just a quick note: It has been a great pleasure working with one of Canada's top Dog magazines Dogs in Canada over the past three years, and recently it was an honor to receive a letter from Dogs in Canada Editor Kelly Caldwell announcing that a photo of mine had been nominated for a Dog Writer's Association Award. Back in February Ms. Caldwell confirmed that the photo won top prize! This is a great honor to be recognized along side of some of the top photographers and magazines. Cheers to Dogs in Canada!

To the newest Ottawa Couple!

Last but not least ~ A huge applause for the lovely marriage of a great friend of mine. Dr. Mark de Gruchy to his lovely bride Karen. I had the grand pleasure of photographing their day last weekend and it was one of the most incredible days. I can only show you what they have seen or I am sure Mark would hunt me down! HA! Love you guys! Thanks for letting me be a part of your wedding.

Keep posted for more updates!
