My Story

I never met my mother’s parents. They both passed before I was born, but from the stories my mother has told me about them, I imagine that they are primarily responsible for my sense of humour. And thanks to many (many) photographs like in their wedding album, I can put faces to their shenanigans playing out in my mind.

Sophia was just amazing to work with for our engagement shoot. My fiance and I are not the most photogenic people but quickly realized that didn't matter. We were able to just be our pure natural selves and Sophia captured true moments that came out just beautifully. Her eye for the surrounding scenery is amazing. My only request for scenery was that it had greenery, water, and rocks. She was able to suggest a location with all of that. I can't wait to see our wedding photos now… just have to wait another 13 months. Definitely recommend Sophia for anyone looking for an excellent photographer that takes pride in their shots, catches natural moments and doesn't do typical poses.

My Passion

Family photos are powerful! They house all of the feelings we have for the people in them. Whether it’s a big life event like your wedding or your yearly portrait with your growing kids, photos have deep meaning to the people in them and to the people who love the people in them. Most people know this… But most people don’t like having their photo taken.

Brittany & Dan

Sophia was absolutely amazing to work with! My fiancé and I booked an engagement photo session with her and the entire shoot felt relaxed and natural. Normally, we both feel awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera but Sophia made it seem as though she wasn't even there. She picked some great locations for photos and the pictures turned out even better than we could have ever imagined. We truly recommend her!

My Mission

My mission is to help the beautiful, hilarious, and talented people I work with see themselves the way their family and friends do. To help them practice gratitude for this wonderful life they live. To help them laugh a little bit harder. It is to help them feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera and to help them carry those feelings of confidence into their every day lives.

After I’ve downloaded weddings and sessions and had a chance to pick my favourites, I send the entire session along to Suhas to be edited. He makes sure that all photos are properly exposed, sharp, and colour corrected. He saves me loads of time and helps make sure that you get to enjoy your photos as quickly as possible.

Getting my photo taken is one of my least favourite things to do, kind of up there with going to the dentist! It was a necessary thing to do for my business so I dug deep and made the call. Sophia assured me that it would be a pleasant experience, one I would actually enjoy and she was right. First thing she did was organize my hair and makeup to be professionally done and the results were fantastic. From start to finish of the photo shoot, Sophia made me feel comfortable in my own skin and helped me to relax and have fun...
