Mindful Moi - Montreal Postpartum Doula

I met Sara through one of the many mom facebook groups I’m part of. Yes, us modern mothers, we all belong to at least three of these mom groups it seems (or more I’ll confess). We are forever in search of answers and support from other mothers as we navigate this motherhood thing. When I moved to Montreal I had lost my circle of support and knew no one. I wish wish wish I had known Sara then. Sara is an amazing postpartum doula offering support and care to new mothers in Montreal during the fourth trimester. She hosts motherhood circles where new moms can come together, chat through any triumphs or problems, and really just meet other moms in the same stage of life. This would have been invaluable to me back when my son was a tiny baby. I went out to photograph one of her most recent motherhood circles and their time together. It was like watching and photographing a group of friends just getting together for the day. And of course the cute and squishy little babies were the icing on top. This was purely a documentary session, no moms were told to do anything. These photos were just them being awesome moms and sharing some laughs and smiles with each other along the way.


If you are an expectant mother or new mom and would like more info on Sara and her services you can find her on instagram at

Montreal Dancers: Suf & Aurelia


Dancers Suf and Aurelia have by far had the most difficult shoot to date thus far. It snowed a day or two before their shoot (and during their shoot!) and when asked if they wanted to go ahead anyway they both said YES! These young ladies had so much strength and determination. Very early on we realized once pointe shoes get wet, your feet freeze. So that didn't last too long, since the snow and slush was deep enough to get their feet soaked. We thawed in the lobby of a museum when it was finally decided the pointe shoes would be going away for the rest of the shoot. After that, boots and layer of tights/socks were actually better than the pointe shoes. :) Live and learn! And don't freeze! The winter weather and decorations did make for a stunning backdrop though!

Montreal Dancers: Chloe

Contemporary dancer/choreographer/teacher Chloe Hart met up with me in late fall of last year. Right before the snow started for the winter, we wandered around town and ended up at McGill Campus. We discovered the beautiful interior architecture of the Dominion Square building and also spent some carefully timed moments shooting in the street. Chloe's fluid movements were beautiful to watch and capture. We had a great time exploring the city and discovered some great places to shoot, even as passersby dodged out of the frame and around us.

Montreal Dancers: Stephan

It was a rainy, cold, and wet day when Stephan and I met to shoot. We explored a bit of the Place d'Armes area and then went underground to stay dry, then decided to take our chances in the rain and hike over to Old Montreal. Stephan is a contemporary, jazzfunk, ladystyle, and bachata dancer who currently takes classes at A'Motion Dance Studio and performs with TRAWBL, a dance team that specializes in Heels. He was so much fun to work with; I can't wait for another shoot with him!

Montreal Dancers: Adele

Energetic, daring, and talented are just a few words to describe Adele. We had so much fun shooting in Old Montreal. We could have kept shooting all day! I knew it was going to be a great shoot when we first met and Adele told me she wanted to climb and jump off things. :)
