I can’t even tell you how excited I am to finally make this happen! The wheels have been turning on the Fine Art Collection for years now. I have always wanted to create a more luxurious, timeless, classic, evocative line of portraits. The first time someone contacted me and asked to commission my services for “just one portrait”, I thought “well, that’s not how I work…” and that left me sitting there scratching my head and wondering “Do people REALLY want JUST ONE great portrait?” Turns out, the answer is “YES” they do.
Once upon a time (in like, the olden days) 😛 Photographers were commissioned to create portraits. They didn’t host the more lifestyle/candid sessions that we’re so accustomed to nowadays thanks, in part, to digital technology (which I still love dearly, but this is something completely different) – they had “sittings” and the photographs they created were timeless and became heirloom pieces that were passed on for generations. I am in possession of more than one commissioned portrait of grandparents and great-grandparents, and I’ve got to tell you, they are some of our most treasured heirlooms.
I want to bring that service back with a modern spin. When I first started planning for this launch, it was my intention to launch in the Pet Division first (hence why you’ll see more fine art images of pets than the non-furry variety at this time)… but then as I started posting the teaser images, more and more people started contacting me asking if I could photograph their children (and families!) in this style as well. So, as a result, I am excited to be officially launching The Fine Art Collection service today, and offering an AMAZING launch discount to both fur-babies AND my human clients to try out at 50% off (limited spaces available, must be booked during the two weeks listed below.
Want to try the Fine Art Collection yourself?
CONTACT ME TODAY to snag one of the limited discounted timeslots! (Check your junk/spam folders if you don’t hear back from me within 48 business hours – Mon-Fri)
When will the sessions take place?
The discounted launch event will take place July 9-13, 2018 AND August 13-17, 2018 from 10am to 2pm daily.

I met baby Carson back in July for his newborn session in my Barrie photography studio. He was such a great little guy! I was seriously on a run of luck with some amazing little sleepers this summer! My fingers are crossed that the next batch coming up in November are all just as easy! 😉
It’s not often that I get around to photographing client orders before they go out the door (I’m usually too excited to get them to clients to take the time for pictures) but this particular time I did take photographs of the beautiful heirloom products that baby Carson will get to cherish for his lifetime. Some clients only want digital files, and that’s fine. But for the clients who want hard, tangible items that are high quality, I am proud to be one of the professional photographers in the area who is able to help out with that.
If you are interested in booking a session, please contact me! Anyone who books between now and December 31st will receive $200 off any package of their choice!
Every day, Carson’s family gets to enjoy a beautiful 10×8 Heirloom Album, a 16×20 Canvas, a framed wall display, a set of 3 accordion albums, 4×6 loose prints, and the entire gallery of digital files.
I absolutely love capturing milestones for this family! Which is what I’ve been doing since their first daughter was just 6 months old. I met their second little gal, Scarlett, at the same age (6 months) and was thrilled to have the opportunity to do her first birthday portraits as well. She was such a cheeky little chicky all throughout her cake smash! Usually, I get little clients who are either a) completely indifferent to the cake and could take it or leave it, b) Love it! or c) HATE it! Scarlett fell into the LOVE IT category and just couldn’t get enough! She smiled the entire time, stuck her tongue out at me at the most opportune moments, and just overall put on such a great show that I had a really hard time narrowing down her gallery afterwards!
Scarlett’s family ended up with a total over 60 unique images in their gallery, which they used to create a stunning commemorative heirloom album for Scarlett to look back on one day! I think I’ve mentioned before how much I LOVE albums, so I was thrilled to be able to create this little masterpiece for Scarlett!
I’m now booking outdoor sessions for evenings, with my first availability at this time being the last week of May. If you’re interested, please contact me today!
And now, here’s Scarlett! 😀

Anyone who’s visited my studio has seen the array of different products that I offer to all of my clients to complement their sessions. I am passionate about only offering the best, most unique products on the market. Could you get prints at Walmart or Shutterfly? Sure you could, but they wouldn’t be even close to the quality that I can offer you. But really, it’s not just about the prints, it’s about things you CAN’T find anywhere else, like the Woodmounts, the Floatmount Collages, the whimsical frames, and my absolute favourite, the Heirloom Albums!
Why are Heirloom Albums my Favourite Product?
My house is covered in canvas and framed prints, because it makes me super happy to see the love that my family has for one another hanging on my walls. It makes my heart happy when others stop to admire the art that’s hanging on my walls too! But really, my one true love is albums. Like many of you, my home suffers from a lack of prime wall space to hang large wall art. Add to that fact that there are sometimes upwards of 60 beautiful images from each session I do (with my own kids and with my clients) and it can be so hard to choose which FEW are wall worthy, and which ones will remain on the USB, never to see the light of day. 🙁
Heirloom Albums solve ALL of these problems!
~ With 20 Lay Flat pages, they literally fit every single image from your session inside!
~ No wall space? No problem! Simply place your album on your coffee table and you can enjoy your gorgeous images just as much as if they were hanging on your walls!
And the bonus right now? Purchase an album with your session and receive a 50% discount off of your purchase of the Entire Gallery of Digital Files! Ask to see my sample album the next time you’re here so you can see the quality for yourself!
Little Miss Margaret was one of my last sessions of 2015, and one of my most anticipated because of the AMAZING set that we had planned! Mom sent me a colour palate and I could see the whole thing put together in my head with the teals, pinks, whites and golds, I couldn’t WAIT to photograph this little lady on it!
Just a little booking update – I’m getting tons of inquiries right now, which I would LOVE to take on, but I am currently fully booked for the remainder of February. I only have about 5 dates left for March as well. Mommy & Me Minis are also booking in April and I have newborns due in August booking right now too, it’s never too early to book! If you are interested in getting on the calendar, please contact me and let me know how I can help you! 🙂
Miss Margaret’s session was an All Inclusive Package, which means that her parents got to take home every single digital file in her gallery without having to choose! They also got a 4×6 colour reference print of every image in her gallery tucked neatly inside this adorable Heirloom Keepsake Box (because as much as I love digital files, I love printed, tangible products more!) How cute is this!?
