"Carrying life within you is a miracle that awakens the soul and fills the heart with love beyond measure."

Welcome to my maternity photography page! I’m thrilled that you’ve stopped by to explore my work and consider me as your photographer for this special time in your life.

As a photographer with a passion for capturing the beauty of pregnancy, I specialize in outdoor and on-location studio sessions. Whether you prefer the natural beauty of a beach, forest,  or garden, or the cozy comfort of your own home, I’m equipped with portable studio equipment that allows me to create stunning images in any setting.

My goal is to provide you with a comfortable and personalized experience that celebrates your unique journey. I take a relaxed and natural approach to my sessions, focusing on capturing the authentic love and joy that you and your partner share during this exciting time.

When it comes to editing, my style is simple and classic, with a focus on highlighting your natural beauty and the bond between you and your little one. I believe that your photos should be a reflection of who you are and the love that you have for your growing family, and I strive to create images that you will treasure for years to come.

Maternity Session

Offering up to 1 hour of coverage, this session provides a gorgeous set of images showcasing the incredible beauty of this transformative and magical time in your life. I live very close to sandy Georgian Bay Beaches, so the session can be here or within 45 minutes driving of Tiny, ON, L0L2T0, without travel fees. I know lots of great locations in the southern Georgian Bay, Barrie, and Orillia areas, so if you need a recommendation, just let me know. I'm not afraid of doing what it takes to get the images you want.

Image Editing

Standard Editing (Included with All Photoshoots)

This includes adjustments to make your images pop:  including adjustments to white balance, brightness, contrast, standard noise reduction and sharpening.

Professional Editing (Included with some Photoshoots)

Drawing on 24 years of professional photography experience and using state of the art imaging software, this level of editing makes your images look their very best. Includes standard editing plus the following adjustments: Artificial intelligence (AI) based noise reduction and sharpening, minor blemish and eye circle removal, and the application of a carefully chosen film stock profile (to make your image look it’s very best). All Pro Edits include a complimentary black and white copy of your image as well.  

Diamond Pro Editing

This level of editing is reserved for intricate editing requests including complicated object removal and image composites (ie. where multiple images are used to create a perfect one).  Also includes all Pro Level Enhancements and complimentary black-and-white version of image.


Raw Files

Your raw files are the equivalent of a film negative. These are the files you want to use if you are doing any significant editing to your images. They are the files I use when doing any Professional edits. They are now available at an extremely attractive add-on price of $150 for an Engagement, Maternity, Proposal, or Couples Session.

Prints and Enlargements

All images are perfected by Mark before being printed at Phoenix Professional Labs in Toronto on professional photographic paper. I searched long and hard for the best print lab in Canada, and the quality is second to none. 3×5 $3.50, 4×6 $4.50, 5×7 or 6×8 $12.99, 8×10 or 8×12 or 10×10 $22.99, 10×15 $27.99, 11×14 or 12×12 $30.99, 12×14 or 12×18 $40.99, 16×20 $52.99.
