Principal Newborn Photographer & Owner

People often ask me how I became interested in photography…and the plain and simple truth is this: I fell in love with it.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my husband and our four kids more than life itself. But there’s just something about the feeling I get once the camera is in my hands, harnessing the emotions in front of me, and capturing the most precious moments in my clients’ lives.

From the moment I get to know baby while they’re still in their mother’s belly at the maternity session, to the first time I look in their eyes, and hold their little hand, at the newborn shoot, to 12 months later when they’re a full-blown toddler at the first birthday milestone session—I feel honoured to form ongoing relationships with my clients.

Melanie from Lil' One Photography


Studio Manager & Associate Newborn and Milestone Photographer

Hey! I'm Melanie. I'm the one you reach out to when you set up your first consultation. In fact, my number one goal is to make sure you are happy and satisfied with your newborn and milestone photography experience.

I'm a graduate of Humber College’s Creative Photography program, and have been documenting life’s special moments for 15 years. I bring enthusiasm, fun and positive vibes to all of my sessions.

My love for photography and documenting special milestones has brought me to Lil’ One Photography, where I share a passion for photographing families who want to document what’s most important to them. I'm here to capture your special newborn and milestone sessions, and am not afraid to get covered in cake (or anything else for that matter) in the process!

Maria for Lil' One Photography


Fine Art Maternity and Boudoir Photographer & Creative Director

My name is Maria and I’m so excited to be joining Lil’ One Photography’s team as their principal maternity photographer! I am thrilled to be joining forces with the team to bring you the most amazing experience for your maternity and newborn/baby sessions.

I currently live in the GTA but am originally from Ukraine. I have an amazing husband and am a mom to the sweetest three-year-old girl.

I have always loved photography, but my journey to becoming a professional photographer has been an interesting one! Photography is not only my true passion but also my life. I believe that a photographer is an artist, a psychologist and a creator simultaneously. A photographer showcases not only the outer beauty but the inner beauty of their subjects. I know how to capture your best angles and highlight the beauty of your growing belly. My main mission is to create lasting memories that you will cherish forever.
