Hey! I'm Shay, a multi-genre photographer based out of Toronto, Canada.
With a calm & fun-loving personality, I connect well with kids of all ages, families and professionals across a diverse array of industries. Expert at capturing life's perfect candid moments, I'm a Toronto standard for high-end event photography & family portraiture and can make any person feel at ease in front of the camera - trust me, we're going to have a great time!
With a special connection to the not-for-profit community, I offer services sensitive to the needs of any type of organization. Just let me know what we're working with and we'll find a way to make it happen!
I believe in sustainable living and connect well with brands & organizations that carry forward this social responsibility. Our earth is beautiful, and I want to capture it at its most magical hours. As a landscape photographer, nature feels like home. I’m often trekking, climbing, and camping to get the shot. I gravitate to compositions that illuminate the multidimensional and textural aesthetic of the terrain. These images are printed locally on gorgeous fine art papers that complement the organic textures of our world - it would be an honour for you to own a print!
My passion for photography sprouted from my desire to engage with my many communities, and this has extended to my offerings of custom courses for both youth and adults. I love sharing my knowledge and seeing others develope a sense of awe towards photography as a medium. Check out some of my courses!
My work is the product of my passions for photography and exploration, and I hope it will capture your imagination and wanderlust.
I'm adaptable and creative, and would love to collaborate with you on many different projects!

A huge shout out to Shay for getting my kids who were not having any of it to strike some great poses. She involved them with the capturing of the photos explaining “now when you see your picture you can think...I helped make this”. Shay is amazing with kids. Got some incredible shots.

Working with Shay is awesome! We’ve used her for a number of events, and are always thrilled with the results. Shay is always incredibly thoughtful about what kind of photos we need, and works closely with us to ensure we get them!

I worked with Shay both personally and for business. Personally, my wife and I hired Shay for our maternity shots and we couldn't have been happier with the results. She was fun and very creative and captured us beautifully. At JNF, I hired Shay to photograph the annual Negev Campaign Launch. The photos were fabulous! Shay perfectly captured the energy and atmosphere in the room. I would highly recommended Shay to anyone and to any organization.
