Before your wedding, your planner and I will communicate about the overall timeline of the day, and I will make recommendations to help you get loads of beautiful photographs with great lighting. I will also carry my own photo timeline to stay extra organized!

"She puts her heart and soul into her work and loves what she does."

Jackie & Bill

There are many moving pieces that have to come together for a successful wedding day. A professional photographer will help you get the most out of your big day.

Whether I am photographing a mini session or full family session, I believe that patience and a playful attitude are the keys to great photos of your children. If the focus is the special time you are creating for your family, then the photographs will resonate that joy.

"Taking pictures with Mirelle is fun for our whole family as she is really positive and enthusiastic. She makes the entire process from start to finish very enjoyable."

harley & candice

A successful baby portrait session can take hours, so time and patience are key. I will come to your home and work around the baby's schedule. These sessions involve a lot of breaks for feeding and diapering so as I photograph, I am also checking in to make sure everyone is comfortable.

"She has taken all our professional photos from engagement to our second born and I’ve loved every one of them."

From headshots that feel high-fashion to working photographs and details of your work elements, these editorial shoots for brands and businesses can elevate your business presence.




"Mirelle is a true artist and has a great creative eye."

cayse & Robbie

Some of my favorite photographs from a wedding are those of the guests, when they are showing genuine happiness in their face and don't notice that I'm taking their photo.

want all the joy captured

While a wedding day is fast-paced, I am there to capture everything from the overall sense of celebration, to fine art photography portraits of the happy couple (even if it means getting soaked in the pouring rain to get 'the shot')!
