I had the privilege of working with Sonia this past January. From the very beginning she was so thorough and organized. From the planning session to the actual day of the photos, she was so clear in the vision and every little detail. She was so kind, patient and sweet with my kids as well as myself. There are no words for the quality of her photographs…it’s a true work of art. Thank you Sonia for capturing this moment in time of my children.

From the first step into Sonia's studio I felt like I am in fairytale. We discussed all what I want to see on my photos (it was newborn+family photoshoot) and it was done better than I could even imagine.
Sonia's photos looks like a postcards or even like paintings from museum, printed on Amalfi paper in Italy they are arriving to Canada with 300 years warranty so we know our grandchildren and their children will still be able to look at us:)
Thank you Sonia for an amazing experience and will see you soon for our
spring shoot

I knew I liked Sonia's photography style after doing a bunch of research into children's photographers in the area, but what I didn't expect was how she would build a relationship with us before our session. We talked, and talked again, and talked again! Not only do I feel like she has a sense of who we were and what kind of photos I was after, but that she was creating a whole experience just for us! I just picked out the images I'll take home today, and holy smokes - they're so dreamy! Right out of a storybook. I had a really great experience. Five stars, all gold. Two thumbs up. Fully recommend

My cousin lives in Ottawa I purchased a gift certificate from Sonia. Best gift I have ever given. My cousin was more than thrilled . The time, attention and honesty I got was worth everything. I would never use anyone else. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING Sonia!!!
-GLENNA ROSENBERG

From the very beginning the experience with Sonia was a complete pleasure!
She ensured to take her time and truly listen to what we wanted in our photoshoot.
The in person experience was impeccable, Sonia's Studio is incredibly clean, inviting and comfortable.
She did not rush us in any way and despite the fact that we were there with our rowdy 2 year old she was able to capture exactly what we were looking for.
The quality of her work, the artistic creativity and professionalism are second to none.
It is a life time experience!
Anyone who is looking for high quality professional photography should not hesitate to go with Sonia.
I highly recommend her!
Thank you so much Sonia for the fabulous experience!
We will return soon
