Hi, I'm Jocelyn.

I'm a mellow, goofy, creative documentary photographer with an unquenchable desire to explore, and to share myself with others. I Wanna Dance with Somebody is my go-to karaoke jam, so know that if that song comes on at your wedding I'll be singing along with every word of it. I'm a Libra, so I'm a social & charismatic romantic who loves the outdoors. I'm a queer woman invested in social justice. I’m born & raised in the west end of Toronto, where I now live with my partner Hannah and my rescue dog Ru. And I can read your tarot cards if you're down with that sort of thing.

My style is organic, unobtrusive, and sentimental. I'm a total sucker for nostalgia. I'm all about capturing the honest and the in-between, because those instances reflect how life actually happens. Life is chaotic, so I try to slow down and look for the sweetness in the small stuff. I make photos in an attempt to prolong the visibility of fleeting moments. My priority is for you to feel comfortable, safe, and to enjoy the process. My goal is for us to create authentic, timeless photos together that you will enjoy and appreciate for years to come.
