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 has been superb to work with! We love the natural style of her photography. Since our first interaction, she has been communicative, transparent, professional and easygoing! We had our engagement shoot with her recently, it was such a fun experience and the photos came out great! We are looking forward to having her apart of our big day!

My Passion

Family photos are powerful and important! They house all of the feelings we have for the people in them, whether they’re of big life events like weddings or candids of your growing kids.

Photos hold deep meaning to the people in them and to the people who love the people in them. And they help us feel all of the love, joy, and grief that we’ve felt for those people and moments over and over again. Most people know this. But most people don’t like having their photo taken…

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 Mission

If you, too, hate having your photo taken, it’s probably because someone somewhere along the way told you that you aren’t photogenic. But I’m here to tell you that that is absolutely not true.

This is my mission! To help you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. To help you see yourself the way your family and friends do. And to cheer you on as you bring this new sense of self-worth and gratitude into the rest of your life.

Nathalie is an energetic and fun photographer who assists with me on weddings across Ontario. I actually grew up just around the corner from her husbands’ family. What I love most about Nathalie is how she is always taking fun, creative photos of the wedding party while I’m photographing the couple.

Nathalie is also bilingual.

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!
