The Full Story »

I'm a lifestyle and documentary photographer based out of Toronto. I have a passion for photographing families, entrepreneurs and real life moments. I capture who you are, just as you are right now. Two promises: your session will be fun, your pictures will be real (your best self real, not like mid-sneeze real). 

I have told everyone how "real" the pictures are. They are true to our family and really depict who we are. I always say Janis didn't bring anything to make the pictures fake, her talent was able to enhance the photos is a realistic way. She was able to use our boring condo and make it look like an amazing background.

Every shot she sent me was incredible. She delivers such a personal warm experience during the shoot that I plan to make this an annual tradition!

PLEASURE WORKING WITH JANIS."
