Meet Ilissa

“As a mother, I understand how fast time goes by and how important it is to capture and preserve your memories - whether it is of your pregnancy, your birth, the early days after your new baby is born, or every day moments - those are the times that you will want to remember forever! 

Seeing the world through a lens, working with families, babies, children, and being active in the birth community is truly where I am meant to be. Being with families during all those special moments, and capturing those memories them is such an honour!”
