Hi, I’m Janet. I'm a lifestyle commercial photographer based in Toronto, Canada. My style is bright, clean and natural which draws the focus to your story and brand. 

My Story

I became a full time photographer because I wanted to find that place where passion met profession to become vocation. Up until that point, my previous jobs lacked passion.

After graduating from university, I worked in the financial industry in marketing and communications, but I knew from the beginning that I didn’t want that to be my life’s work so I left and pursued only the roles that were of interest to me.

Over time, I slowly felt an inkling to take photography further. I wanted to challenge myself and spend my waking hours doing something I loved and had meaning. I needed to see how far I could take photography if I put all my time and energy into it. Even if I failed, at least I tried and that is something I wouldn’t regret.

I didn’t get to this point by myself though. I have an amazing community of friends and family who have supported me by referring my work, commissioning me and cheered me on throughout the process.

I love meeting with people who are going through that stage of uncertainty because I’ve been there. And though I don’t have all the answers, I just want to offer encouragement the way others have done for me.

Thank you, new and longtime friends, for being a part of the adventure. I hope to have the honour of taking your photograph soon.

Lifestyle PHOTOGRAPHY

I've photographed lifestyle imagery for clients like Google, Airbnb, McDonald's, Schick, Mary Macleod's Shortbread, Tom Ford, Anthropologie and Purina. I've also been an official accredited photographer at the Rogers Cup on behalf of the Canadian Olympic Committee.

I also work with local businesses by creating custom content to elevate their brand, including styling, product photography and portraits.

Lifestyle photography sessions start at $400 + HST.

Wedding photography

Every year, I reserve a limited number of weekends only for small weddings of 100 guests, which allows me to dedicate more time to each couple. More dates for weddings during the week are welcome. 

Small weddings creates an intimate environment for the bride and groom to enjoy more time with their family and closest friends while I document those special moments. 

Wedding photography packages start at $3000 + HST.
