Your Photographer

Alright, so since you already know a little bit about me, here's more details about my life!

I met my husband, Alex, back in the summer of 2013. I was in the middle of my post-secondary schooling and wasn't quite ready for the kind of relationship that would come with a guy like him. He spent the next several months proving to me that he was the one for me. He was persistent to say the least. We became "Facebook Official" on January 11, 2014, got engaged January 11, 2015, and then married on July 16, 2016.

Alex was actually a package deal... he came with Max. Max is our 10 year old German Shepherd. He is the cuddliest 100lb fur ball who can perfectly mimic a siren with his adorable howl. Unfortunately he has only has enough room in his heart for a few lucky people (meaning he doesn't particularly like strangers, other dogs, the mailman, etc).

Shortly after getting married, Alex and I decided we wanted to add another fur baby to our family. We had hoped this would calm all of the "when are you going to procreate" questions we had been getting since our wedding. So, along came Piper.

Piper is, hands down, the sweetest dog in the world. She loves everyone and everything. She gives endless kisses and cuddles. She has quickly become my best friend in the world (if you are a dog person, this isn't weird... if you aren't, I promise it's not as weird as it sounds).

Now for the newest (and definitely biggest) additions to our family... we are expecting a baby boy early November 2022. We're SO excited to start this new chapter of our lives, aka parenthood, but obviously nervous. All I can say is that this baby boy will be the most photographed kiddo... :)
