• Welcome to Open Shutter Photography!

    Coming from small-town Ontario and being old-school in every sense of the word, I enjoy things in life that have true lasting power; pyrex, canning, traditions and, of course, the perfect shot!

    My specialty is Lifestyle Photography …..Weddings, Maternity and Newborns; all the real tear-jerker stuff! Being a lover of all things sentimental, I understand the true importance of capturing those magic moments that make life extraordinary. Extensively trained in newborn posing, safety and natural lighting, I take the well being of your little one (whether it be in the form of a bump, or the baby that’s already made its arrival) with as much care as I would my very own; creating timeless images that capture those fleeting, adorable moments forever.

    I want to create an experience for you that is really enjoyable, and that makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera. I want to take pictures of you being you! Pictures that you will look back on and remember, not only for the faces and love, but for the fun we had taking them too! I, myself, am a sensitive, romantic soul who has married the man of her dreams. Together we have created three little angels of our own. Living and Loving through our crazy life is an amazing adventure that I am so happy to be a part of. Life passes us by so quickly, it’s important that from time to time we stop to smell the roses and take the poses.

Baby Ryder (Chatham-Kent Newborn Photographer) » Open Shutter Photography - […] Sweet Little Ryder came to the studio for his newborn session when it was way warmer out.. Man its freezing here in the great white almost north.  Ryder’s Mama is a longtime friend of mine since we were kiddies.   I am so happy to capture memories for every client that comes to the studio but when it’s a friend or family member it makes it just that much sweeter!  You may remember her maternity session, what a gorgeous lady she is with a beautiful family!  You can view it here.  […]
