Located in West Tamarac, my studio can accommodate small families for group and individual portraits.  If you prefer the park or beach, I have several locations I can recommend based on what kind of scenery you like.

Be sure to check the weather before booking an outdoor photo session.  Depending on the forecast we may have to reschedule your shoot due to weather.
