I have had the privilege of photographing little Miss. Aurora since she was born. The ability to capture a child growing is the best feeling in the world. I have been able to watch her talk, crawl, try to walk and just become more beautiful with each day! I love that I have chosen this career and am able to capture such precious moments with you all. I will be taking the next two weeks off for my wedding and honeymoon! I will be answering inquiries and emails when I return. Thank you all for being so understanding. Read More

Exhaustion! The feeling that you must keep pushing forward and a million things are on your to do list, but you just want to sleep. While sitting in class listening to the teacher talk about introductions, my limbs feel super heavy and my eyes are fighting to keep open. The constant running around and going non-stop is necessary to complete our final term in the Digital Photography Program. One of the requirements is to execute and host a final gallery of images to display to the public for the duration of two weeks. This is what has stolen all of my energy and time. Stolen like a mother’s time when she holds her newborn child to only blink and see them running off to college. I have no time for work, friends, even my family; this is what destroys me the most, knowing that I cannot talk to my little girl about her day or help her with her homework.   January 11, 2016 was the beginning of the end, the final term in a two-year program at Lambton College. It was the first week back to school after a nice winter vacation and we were given our main assignment […] Read More
During my final weeks at Lambton College, there was a lot of chaos and clutter in my life. After making sure all my final assignments were submitted and projects were complete I took a point of realizing all that I accomplished this term. In the final term Lambton College hosts an annual “Image Challenge” amongst the students in their grades. We were required to submit 5 images between three categories. Out of the 21 students in my class I won 1st Place Best Overall in the Image Challenge Awards this year. It is with great pride that I accepted this final award from Lambton College and from my amazing professors. I will cherish this immensely.   Out of this term I created many amazing photographs, hosted a gallery, created and executed the presentation of a professional business plan, and then completed my program with amazing grades. To my professors, I want to thank for all of their help, perseverance and pushing me to where I am today. I always know I can do better and can always learn new things. I will never stop learning.   On April 26th I had the opportunity of photographing a beautiful Highland Dancer named, […] Read More
On April 24th, 2016 in a galaxy far far away(Sarnia, ON) two forces came together to join ranks on the dark side. The storm troopers stood over the ceremony to allow Darth Vadar(Hoss) the opportunity to marry the love of his life, Melissa. The day was filled with laughter, smiles, and dancing. Two of my best friends were married this day and to be able to capture it was such a blessing. My fiancé was able to stand in the bridal party by Hoss’ side to assist him in making the big step to marry Melissa. The Guildwood Inn was absolutely amazing and had a beautiful setup for this Star Wars themed wedding. G & L Rocks DJ Services helped rock the night away and Ruthless Baker make an amazing R2D2 cake with Yoda cupcakes that were delicious. It was an amazing wedding that I was very excited to be able to capture. Below are a few sneaks from their wedding day. You may now kiss the bride. The flower girl fell and wanted her mom and with the perfect timing I captured her beautiful eyes. First dance as husband and wife…under some bubbles courtesy of R2D2 bubble machine! A […] Read More

It’s been a week since my grand opening at Bayside Mall in Sarnia, ON. It has been an extremely busy week between school, projects and gallery opening. I want to take this moment to thank all the guests who came by to view my images over the past week. To those whom purchased prints, thank you very much! I had some surprise visitors who came that didn’t know if they could make it down, my aunt and uncle and soon to be mother-in-law came by. I appreciated the flowers I received as well from my parents, mother-in-law and a loyal client of mine. They are absolutely beautiful! Tomorrow, we will have a relaunch for our final week open. Saturday April 9th, 2016 from 10-6pm we will be open and we hope to see you all out again! Prints are going to be for sale and discounted for the final week open!

What do you get when you put a group of young ladies, music, dancing and a photographer together?   You get an amazing shoot! This is exactly what happened this past Sunday with myself. I had the privilege of working with three young dancers(all from different genres) that brought a lot of spunk and laughter to the studio. Kennady, whom I have previously worked with, came back and this time we brought along two extra energetic dancers. Tatum and Ariana are two young ladies that were more than willing to do whatever I requested from them. I had music playing and the girls were dancing along and having so much fun.   We used a six light set-up to light the cove(a panoramic studio to create a constant horizon) that allowed for the background to be 100% white. This created flawless images, which I am extremely proud to share with you all. Please enjoy these images while I work away on editing galleries and preparing for next Friday’s opening night for the gallery. Kennady models for the second time this year both formally and informally. Ariana shows her flexibility during our session! Tatum poses in her urban outfit and looks […] Read More
Everything has been extremely busy here at Growing Wings Photography. With preparation for our first Fine Art Gallery event on April 1st, 2016 we are super busy creating, editing, printing and framing our images for the big night. The creativity has been lacking as of lately due to how busy we are. However, this Sunday I am photographing 3 dancers(Kennady is coming back!!) and I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to shoot with these lovely ladies. The grace and poise that is presented by these ladies is amazing! I am extremely excited to see these ladies all in the studio!  PLUS, I have Easter Mini sessions happening the following weekend! Today I am going to leave you with one of the Fine Art/Macro piece I have been working on, in preparation for my gallery piece. It is called Nicotine! Feature photo is Smoldering Love Pt 2.   ~To watch your family grow is a blessing, to capture them growing through photographs is a treasure. Read More
