get to know me

What my business offers and who I am.


I’m Tricia

I’m a Canadian photographer, educator, and story teller that reaches for the stars in every endeavour. Music is my first love, I cry in basically every movie, I am an unapologetic Netflix-binger, and I’m still in love with all things Sailor Moon. 

I didn’t always take good pictures…

And I didn’t grow up wanting to be a mom. (…seriously!)

But I truly believe that the things we are meant to do in this life choose us, not the other way around.

Photography chose me. It literally fell into my lap when a friend asked me to photograph her wedding on the east coast of Canada with virtually zero experience. I had been planning on going to school for digital art, but after her wedding I thought what the heck, why not photography?

I learned everything on my own, graduating from the school of hard knocks. I had to bulldoze my way to get to where I am now. Despite it all, I built a thriving business with tenacious persistence and a whole lotta faith in the Big Guy Upstairs. I was truly happy.

And then I became a mother. The moment my son was born, the fabric of who I was changed in an instant. Like shedding old skin, I was a new person, with new purpose and aspirations. This evolution shocked me to my core.

You see, I never grew up wanting children. In fact, the very notion of rearing a child was terrifying to me. I was the child of an incredible single mother and a father who abandoned me. I grew up so aware of how easy it was to screw someone up as a parent and I wasn’t sure I wanted that power. But sometimes life has a way of giving you exactly what you need, not what you think you want. 

I cried for the first ten days of my son’s life because I couldn’t believe how much I loved him and needed him. And then nearly everyday of his life since, I say to myself I can’t believe I almost didn’t do this!

Soon after his birth I began to struggle with the balance of motherhood and work. My thriving career made me make personal sacrifices that often broke my heart. But I knew that my work was still an integral part of me – and in so many ways, it made me a better mom. 

I don’t want to dread the day my children leave home because they were the only thing that gave purpose to my life. 
I want to be proud of the framework I built my life on completely, not just partially. 

Over the years I had to learn how to manage the pull of my heart and the pull of my desires. And while I may never find the unicorn of balance, I’ll never stop looking. But I have found my rhythm in my journey with motherhood and business, and I’m incredibly blessed to have been able to combine the two with this platform by sharing what I’ve learned with you!

The loves of my life

The really important things:


My Marriage

This man is the yin to my yang. He still gives me butterflies after 16 years of being together. He keeps me grounded and I lift him up. I wouldn’t want to do life with any other human as my partner. I thank God every single day for putting us together. 

So I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.” -PABLO NERUDA


My Babies

These precious little peanuts light up my life and give me the most incredible joy I have ever known. I met the real me when they joined our family and I will forever be grateful for the privilege of being their mom. They are the greatest of all my creations and the absolute height of all I have accomplished.


My Creativity

Ever since I was a little girl, art has been a huge part of my life. I remember the day I discovered and fell in love with the exact shade of my favourite colour blue at six years old. I’ll never forget exactly how thrilling it felt to turn hand coordination into music on the piano keys when I was eight. And I can close my eyes and still recall the wonder from falling asleep each night to the symphonies of Yanni when I was only 11, which shaped my imagination in more ways than I can count. I was born to express myself through creativity.


I’m probably playing the piano, on a doughnut-date with my fam, drinking coffee, mentally redecorating my house, laughing at internet memes, browsing Instagram for the zillionth time, lovin’ on my husband or dreaming up my next business move. 

So you and me are pretty much friends by now, right?
