Being a Photographer is something that runs in my blood. That's my Dad with the camera in his hand and me hanging on the fence when I was about 4 years old. He is the inspiration behind HeartGate Photography. He ran his business for over 30 years and since his passing, I often wonder what he thinks of me taking after him in his career. I hope that he would be proud.
Growing up as a Photographer's daughter, I am no stranger to being in front of the lens. I was 10 when I first realized that I wanted to be behind the lens too. I remember the first camera that I got as a gift when I was in grade 6 but I promptly lost it at summer camp within the first few months of owning it. I'm much better at taking care of my equipment now that I purchase my own. LOL.
If you'd like a photographer who is always in your corner, cheering you on and will make sure that you're 100% in love with your photography experience, then let's chat more!

I acknowledge the Treaty 6 Territory; the Ancestral and Traditional Territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux as well as the Métis. I acknowledge the many Inuit, First Nations, and Métis Peoples whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. I am grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. My recognition of this land is an act of reconciliation and an expression of my gratitude to those whole territory I reside on and/or visit.
