I got my start, painting faces on paper, as a child. It didn’t take long for me to decide to actually turn real faces into my real canvas. After living abroad in Ireland, I realized makeup was my passion. I graduated from the School of Makeup Art in Toronto and I began working as a make-up artist in film & television. Fifteen years later, I’m a seasoned makeup artist with extensive experience in film, television, commercial, print, bridal and, my personal favorite, red carpet makeup. Sitting still and putting your face in someone else’s hands can make you feel vulnerable, and I get it. I’m funny, caring and respectful of my clients needs. My side-kick Bear is with me most of the time (when he’s not doubling for Tina Turner’s wig and making big eyes at our clients). I’ve worked on many celebrity faces including Suki Waterhouse, Martha Wainwright, Lisa Ray, Tracy Moore, Tanya Kim, Pooja Handa, Caroline Rhea, Tamara Taylor, Henry Winkler, Hanson, Slash, Luis Fonsi & Peter Mansbridge to name a few. I’m completely dedicated to advocating and using cruelty-free beauty. In 2016, I met and worked with Camilla on a series of lifestyle & advertising photoshoots in Cuba. An experience that has bonded us forever (for too many reasons to share here…) When I’m not changing the world, one beautiful face at a time, I can be found chilling with my rescue animals, glass of wine in one hand, good tunes and home-made vegan amaze-balls in the other.

I’m a Toronto-based photographer, who has always felt a little more at ease looking at the world through my camera lens. After graduating from McGill University, and spending a year in Prague, I went on to study film (as in actual film) and photography at Ryerson. In 2005, I left working in television to turn a passion for photography into a happy little business. My philosophy is to treat my clients as I would like to be treated. And since I’m the most awkward, camera-shy person who still can’t take a decent selfie, I completely understand how uncomfortable an intimate experience like portrait photography can be. Each portrait session, each client, is unique and special, and I love capturing my clients at their best. My clients say I’m relaxed and very effective at putting them at ease around the camera. I capture moments in a natural, candid way and I try to make the whole experience a true pleasure. In the course of my career I’ve photographed a wide variety of private and corporate portraiture clients, as well as having done a range of travel editorial & advertorial lifestyle work including covers for Wedding Vacations, and with features in WedLuxe and Elegant Weddings. Some of my portrait subjects have included Woody Harrelson, Jessica Mulroney, Sarah & Bryan Bauemler, Tracy Moore, Pooja Handa, Avery Haines and Liz Trinnear. I currently live in Toronto with my husband, son and two dogs, and I enjoy a cold glass of champagne with just about anything.

If you’re lucky, I’ll wander into a photo with you… It’s simply not a Lit Beauty & Photo shoot if I’m not there behind the scenes (and occasionally stealing them…) I’m Holly’s rescue Pomeranian, and an integral part of the studio. While you don’t have to loooooove dogs to be a welcome part of the Lit Family, you must love people who love dogs. And, if you have treats, I WILL travel.
