Catherine and Gab’s mom contacted me to purchase a shoot for them. I love these emails. I love mothers, husbands, wives, sister, grandparents who reach out to buy a shoot for someone they love. Someone who is incredibly beautiful to them, inside and out, and someone who they want to see in themselves what others see in them. Some people just don’t realize the power of photography and what it can do for you. The confidence and what it can do for your self-image is astounding. What you don’t see when you look at these images are the smiles, the giddiness when they see themselves in the photos and the confidence these kind of shoots create. I don’t sell photos, I sell confidence. I want you to look at these images, post these images, whatever you want to do and see a confident person who is beautiful inside and out.
A selection of images from a recent shoot with Derek Martin. Derek is the President of Downtown Moncton Inc, is on the board of directors, runs a startup called Tuba, hosted a tv show, ran a company for 12yrs and has his hands in a few other projects… busy man with an incredible energy.. oh and he’s in his mid 30s! He’s incredibly humble and a really great guy. We shot for a little over an hour and had some really great chats. Read on for more.
We’ve doing a lot of work for teams over the last year or so, finance groups, law firms, accounting firms and more! The Cormier Group wanted a more polished look for their new website and it was an absolute blast working with them! Read on for the full set of images with makeup by the awesome Belle by Joelle
For the last few years I have had the pleasure of doing the photography for The Friends Of The Moncton Hospital campaigns along side the wonderful people at Hawk! It is something I greatly look forward to shooting every year. This past year Hawk wanted to showcase the people. The people that this campaign helps, the ones who have needed the help and continue to. We were fortunate to sit with these amazing people and listen to their stories. They were quite emotional days but the one common factor in all these people is their positivity. It’s incredibly amazing to talk with people who have been through such hard times and to see them being so positive. It was beyond inspirational and I felt so lucky to be there while they shared their stories.
A couple of years ago I had heard about this guy who lived in Moncton (well Riverview but who the hell knows where that place is), had amassed a huge following on Instagram, was taking kick ass photos of food he was cooking and was also a writer.
Back in November of 2016 I had the pleasure of working with speaker, consultant and coach Martin Latulippe. He needed some images that showed his personality that he could use on his website and in promotional material.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of spending a day with a huge group of creative people. Belle By Joelle had pulled together some of the best wedding vendors in the area… and me, someone who doesn’t do any wedding work. When she had mentioned it to me, I immediately wanted to to be a part of it. I thought that this would be a fun opportunity to work with a large team to bring together all the elements of a wedding and, in the end, we decided to shoot it a little bit more editorial.
I’ve been meaning to share these images for quite a while now. I had the pleasure of working with the extremely talented musician Tyler Hache some time ago. We shot some images for his album cover (which was designed by Skylar Richard), buy the album here, and also for promo. I’ve said it a thousand times, but I absolutely LOVE working with musicians. The creative energy they bring to shoots is so great! Tyler’s sound is incredible so do yourself a favour and go check out his music. More photos follow below.
I always love shooting fitness. The work these people put in to get their bodies ready for competition is nothing short of amazing. Being trusted to take images that reflect all that hard work is always an honour. Hair on Jess was done by: Melissa Duguay.
I met Jean and Kelley after the agency I co-own with my wife signed their daughter. They are 2 of the most wonderful people I have ever met, very supportive of their daughter and are always very interested in learning more about photography and the modelling world. So when they emailed me to say they would be attending quite a fancy gala and would like to get some photos done how could I resist?! They said it had been years since they had gotten photos done and thought this was the perfect time to do it. They hired the fabulous Vicky Mina to do Kelley’s makeup and we did all the photos in the hotel they were staying at. I had an absolute blast working with them that day! Read on for more images!
Sam messaged me in early December to plan a shoot she wanted to give her mom for Christmas. She wanted to do a bit more of a fashion style mother/daughter shoot, and I was pretty excited to shoot it! I have known Sam and Cheryl for quite a long time. My younger brother and Sam’s brother have known each other since they were in grade 1 and played basketball together all the way through the end of high school. Having known them for so long, roughly 20 years, made this extra special for me. We picked 3 different looks for each of them after they arrived having their makeup done by Bonnie Dilag and they then had their hair done by Melissa Duguay. We had such a wonderful day and I really hope I get to do more shoots like this down the road! Scroll on for the rest of the images.

This is a set of images from a shoot I did in Toronto with Ariel of Peggi Lepage and Plutino Models. We had been talking for the better part of 2yrs about shooting together, unfortunately our schedules just never seemed to work out… but on my last trip they finally did! I was lent some beautiful lingerie from Carrie at With Love Lingerie and was fortunate to have the amazing Shawnna Downing for makeup and hair. Ariel is a real pro and is so much fun to shoot with. Read on for the full set of images from this shoot!
