She gives great direction, she makes great conversation to help relax you, she's genuine, personable, and even reminds you to breathe! Not to mention her incredible ability to take outdoor pictures during on of Toronot's worst rain storms that flooded the city - the pictures came out so vibrant and colourful you wouldn't have any idea it was gloomy and dark around us! She is my go-to for all types of shots whether head shots or out in nature."
