Photography nut, pretty much always dressed in black (I dress for the weather) and your biggest photography advocate.
For over 13 years, I’ve provided unforgettable photography experiences to couples and families to create awe-inspiring photos – the kind of photos that make you want to say, "Is that really me?!"
I make REAL people look REALLY good.

If you don't remember anything else, THIS is what I really want you to know: I am able to effectively make everyone - even the most reluctant, camera-shy subjects – feel confident and comfortable in front of my lens AND look great. My promise to you: you WILL feel amazing and your photos will reflect that. (My reviews are proof!)
Whether it’s a simple headshot, family photo or all the intimate moments of your wedding day, my contagious excitement and sense of humour will rub off on you and your group; you’ll get a happy dance from me (literally) that will uplift you and your people. Our session together will be FUN and your smiles genuine.
If I can teach Romeo and Juliet to a class of 45 Grade 10 students – 5 girls, the rest boys (true story) – and have them wanting more, I can handle the needs of your particular photography session. I’m no stranger to efficiency, organization, time management, planning, support, communication and people skills, making everyone feel at ease while we work towards an end-goal.
As pretty much the youngest in a very large Italian family and having a large family of my own (4 kids, the youngest being twins), I have the experience of knowing what everyone aged 0-99 wants and needs out of a session. I can see things from the perspective of your parents, partner, kids, grandparents, friends ... and will be your experienced guide as we factor those variables into your session so that everyone can be happy. Yes, that IS possible. Doesn’t that provide you with relief?
Yes, I got the two-for-one deal with these gals (they're fraternal twins) - and I wouldn't change a thing, not even for one hot minute. These two help keep me in check, make me laugh so hard I can't breathe and are always down for some honest, real conversation. You may even meet one or both assisting on shoots!

These three are the reason I can handle unwilling subjects, goofballs and sarcasm. Can't you just tell from this photo?
"J" , "A" and the other "M" in JEMMAN Photography
This guy keeps me company during editing marathons and can be counted on for an excited hello even if I've only been gone 3 minutes.
Louie, the studio mascot
The rockier and windier the better for walking and beach-combing. A total of 12 years spent on the east coast (Canada and U.S.) makes me yearn for the salt air and ever-changing tides. I'm never as happy as I am when at the beach.
