When I was little, my mom used to take me to a portrait studio each year as I grew. It was a creepy dark place with strange toys. The photographer was an old man. He was tall and big ( or maybe my perspective was skewed because I was small ). He had this vest with lots of pockets and big clunky boots. He was NOT very friendly. I remember having to sit on a small chair with strange toys around me.
*SMILE!' *FLASH* Done.
There it was - a portrait of me hanging in the blue metal frame on the wall of my room. Honestly, I looked petrified in the photo.It certainly wasn’t my mother’s intention to scare me, nor to produce a terrified portrait of me, but at the time this was the only choice for portrait sessions.
As a portrait photographer, I help parents relish the feeling of having a new baby, and to preserve the memories of their children growing up. My studio is bright and fun, with kids music playing gently in the background, and silly dancing all around. I love my career - it gives me a change to be silly and act like a three year old when I chase my little clients and play peek-a-boo (which I can now say in four languages). I strive to take portraits full of life and personality, with joy, smiles and laughter you swear you can almost hear.
My portrait photo studio is located in Markham. It is an elegant and cozy studio with a full set of professional photo equipment (studio lights and backdrops), and a large selection of setups and newborn props.
We specialize in creating a beautiful custom designed hand-made print boxes, albums, wall displays using Italian moulding frames and high quality canvases.
Please contact us if you would like to come by and see the studio, we'll be happy to meet and discuss ideas and inspirations!
There aren't enough kind words to describe Lucy. It truly has been such a blessing working with her. She has done a wonderful job capturing our baby's precious first year milestones that we will be able to look back and reminisce in this special period in our lives. Thank you Lucy!!
Our photo session at Lucy's studio was the best experience we had as parents since we gave birth to our little one. Lucy was a magician with our baby and it felt like she knew as much about dealing with babies as our pediatrician! It was such so touching to see how she crested and captured the precious moments. Baby and mom were extremely comfortable throughout the session they had the most wonderful time. Thank you Lucy for the incredible experience and unforgettable memories!
"Every mother is particularly aware of how people interact with their children; I think these senses are heightened by many times for first time mothers like myself. Lucy’s gentle touch and bubbly personality made my son feel at ease, and in turn, produced amazing pictures for the first year of his little life. We can’t wait to see him grow through her talented lens!"
