2020 may not have been the year we had envisioned, but it was my most successful year in branding and business photography. The pandemic brought us together, you could say. So many businesses had to shift and increase their online presence to stay connected with their clients. The content businesses are putting out there has to be polished, professional, and eye-catching so that it stands out.
There’s no doubt that this year made our community stronger, and better able to weather these crazy times. That being said, we’re not out of the woods. And our small businesses need us now more than ever before. If you’re in a position to, buy gift cards to your favourite restaurants, your favourite gyms, and fitness studios, get the online memberships, get the takeout…support your local businesses in any way that you can.
Here’s a review of the branding sessions I did over this past year. It’s been a wild ride, and I could not be more grateful to all the businesses who trusted me to capture these branding photos for them over the course of this global pandemic.

This feels like a lifetime ago. My branding session at UVU Fitness in their new boxing space was so much fun. They have since relocated to Stittsville but I will love this place forever.
This beautiful human is a therapist and the most lovely soul. Check out more of my session with Tesia at the Ottawa Resiliency Clinic.
I adored this lifestyle shoot with Stephanie Karlovits so much. The light and location were just perfect.
My second branding session with the beautiful Devinder Kaur, owner of Pranashanti Yoga Centre.
My first branding session with physiotherapist Cara Racicot went from being a one-hour session to two. I just couldn’t contain myself and had so many ideas running through my head!
Our second session together was at her clinic where she had a few mock patients come in for some photos of her in action.
Mylene Legresley is an online fitness coach and a stay at home mom who knows how to balance fitness and motherhood like a boss.
The most fun shooting Third Line Health and Fitness and their new merch!
I had the pleasure of photographing this dynamic duo real estate team, Nancy and Frank O’Dea.
Shayne Young is a chiropractor and is one half of the Active Health Institute. We met up for our first session after the first snowfall in November. We did some photos of him in the clinic with a patient followed by some outside in the fresh snow. The best.
Never ever have I had so much fun touring the streets of the Byward Market with a bunch of girls who magically reappeared in a whole new wardrobe, ready to be photographed. Check out my branding session with Sloth Pants!
Here’s a review of badass copywriter Steph Laffy with a stack of books and a smile.
This was such a fun session with Rebecca Rousseau. She’s a killer personal trainer and has a home gym where she is able to hold one-on-one training sessions.
JoAnne Walsh is a coach and healer and a true beauty inside and out.
I’ve had several branding sessions with the Ottawa Resiliency Clinic over this past year and haven’t even blogged one. Shame on me. Mentally adding it to my to-do list…
I haven’t blogged this review yet, but I need to! I had such a blast working with Sarah Hunter, a real estate agent in Ottawa.
Here’s a review of the power couple of Yogatown at a recent shoot at Breather in the Market.
The beautiful Kristina Kim of KK Digital Marketing booked my “every other month” package, which enables her to keep her content on social fresh and relevant.
The beautiful team at West Side Spa!
2020, you’ve been a real slice (a slice of something I could have done without) but you’ve definitely opened some doors that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. Feeling grateful and ready for 2021. My calendar is open for new bookings! Let’s do this thing.
