TORONTO DOG PHOTOGRAPHER: A DOG IS A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND

toronto-dog-photographer-llb-creative-2

As you may know, I adore dogs! Like really really adore them! (After all, I run an entire Instagram feed devoted entirely to dog photography!)

We truffled around in the leaves, watched joggers run by, had lots of snuggles and gobbled up tasty meatballs! I am so grateful to be able to help people celebrate their canine companions. The results are always really special moments! (more…)

Sweet, simple and stylish — this engagement session embodied absolutely everything that I love about my job! (more…)

Capturing the inspiring energy that was generated by a room filled with influencers, key note speakers and creative professionals was something akin to a dream assignment.

Perhaps one of my favourite moments from the day was stumbling upon The Tiffany Pratt discovering a stack of her freshly published book for the first time — it was a special moment to be sure!
