Capturing the innocence and wonder of Childhood!! these are my FAVORITE types of session to create!  I love stepping into a child's world and making their daydreams come to life. If you love themed, magical and individual planned these sessions are for you. 

Magical backdrops &

From crumbling ruins that look like they dropped out of the Outlander series, to sunbathed forests and whimsical windmills, you won’t find any boring parks in my repertoire! I’m also fully equipped with a small indoor studio for portrait sessions if you want to get creative and experiment with styled backdrops.

If you love natural light as much as I do, I’ve got a secret list of unique photoshoot locations that most people can’t believe exist in Brockville and the surrounding areas. 

Turning self-expression into

After we dream up a photo session that gives your child the freedom to explore who they are in this phase of their life, I’ll play with stylized elements, special effects and light and shadow during the editing process to let their true spirit shine.

artwork

I’m always looking for creative ways to turn your child’s moments of self-expression into personalized artwork.

Pretty Dreams Photography took beautiful dance photos of our daughter, and we were truly delighted by the final results. Sonia is lovely to work with and really brought our girl's personality out in her work. We highly recommend Sonia for dance or athletic photos, as well as for family portrait sessions.
