About the Artist
hello

Professional Portrait Photographer,

Backdrop Designer & Graphic Artist.

 

Serving Durham Region &

The Greater Toronto Area

I'm Dell

I have always loved to create since I was a child. My grandmother taught me how to sew and craft just about anything I could imagine. Later, in my teen years, this passion turned into refinishing and building furniture and of course ... photography.

I bought my first manual film camera at 15 and started taking classes. My passion of all things art and design followed me to college where I took a three-year diploma in graphic design.

Once I became a wife and mother I {like most mamas} wanted to remember every moment and every detail of my twins first years. I wanted to bottle that smell, remember how tiny they were, how those moments felt and document all those firsts. These moments are fleeting and before you know it all these things change.

For me, portraits are about the clock that stops when this moment is captured, about a single moment in time that becomes a memory, their little spirit and your family's journey. These moments are your family’s heirlooms, their legacy, and all your dreams.

What’s Her Specialty ?

I specialize in Newborn & Children's Portraiture. I love finding beautiful light inside and out. I have been honored to capture hundreds of local family’s beginnings, precious memories, and holidays professionally since 2014.

 

In 2019, I also started designing custom sets to be printed as commercial backdrops for other professional photographers.

Does She Have Any Education Or Training ?

Yes! I have a three-year diploma in graphic design, where I completed numerous film and digital photography courses as well as extensive image editing training.

 

I have taken specialized classes and training in Newborn portraiture, posing, safety and soothing techniques from some of the best photographers world wide. I am also CPR & First Aid Certified.

 

I also have lots of on the job training as momma to my twins.

Always wanting to improve my craft, I continue to take training courses every year.
