My story

I fell in love with the sport of show jumping when I was really young. I remember seeing Ian and Big Ben jumping on CBC at Spruce Meadows and in those moments my life changed. Everything I talked about was horses, every gift I wanted was horse themed, I was the horse girl at school - everyone knew it and I had no shame in it. As I got older and continued with lessons I found the horse world to be my therapy, whether I was just brushing my lesson horse, or going over my first jumps...I was in heaven.

In 2017 my world shifted a bit and I found myself unable to ride. Instead of giving up on the world completely I shifted my focus from nature photography to equine photography.

As a rider myself I understand the movements of a horse and rider better than the average photographer and can pinpoint the best moments and movements to capture.

After shooting the behind-the-scenes photos for The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair things started to take off and I realized there was something here...I had something to offer my local equine community. Flash forward to today and I worked with Windsor-Essex CADORA, Windsor-Essex Pony Club, local riding facilities, and local equine based businesses. I am proud to support and be involved in this community and I hope to provide riders in this area and across Southwestern Ontario the opportunity to have access to affordable equine sport and lifestyle photography.
