So many wonderful things have happen this year for me… starting off in early January with signing the lease to our studio space and going full-time….

Since starting Treasured Memories Photography in 2012 it has always been my dream to one day have a professional photography studio and to take my passion for photography and babies and do this full time!  So after two years of working out of my home studio and being confined to one small room in my home.. it was a dream come true   having a 800′ studio space and going full-time.  I love being able to have multiple set ups and an area for shooting, a client lounge area, storage for my prop collection and even my own desk…

2014 was also a year for educational growth as well.  Completely my studio lighting course and I was excited to attend my first workshop by photography award winning Stephanie Robin Photography as well as observing newborn session workshops by amazing photographers Kelly Brown of Little Pieces Photography and Ana Brandt Photography.

Another great achievement in 2014 was first being Nominated for the 2014 Hamilton Spectators Readers Choice Awards for “Best Photographer” and “Best Photo Studio”.  And then placing 3rd place in the 2014 Hamilton Community News Readers Choice Awards for “Best Photographer” was such an amazing feeling!  And all of this could never have happened without all of your support over the last few years… so thank you!








I just want to take this time to thank the amazing people that trust me to document their lives so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU to everyone that gave me the opportunity to work with you.  And here is to another great year in 2015!

      Thanks Shannon… it means so much…. And I too was surprised at the numbers.. but after all the babies… birthdays… families… fairies and mermaids… plus all the mini sessions… it has been a long and fruitful year….

    Oh my goodness Gwen, what an incredible year 2014 has been for you. I cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store for you so I can jump the front line and back you up with support.
    I have watched your business flourish from the sidelines and every session has improved tremendously. You’ve also blossomed so much as a person and I have enjoyed watching the whole process. I’m so proud and happy for you and so honoured to be a part of such a wonderful group you started on Facebook.
    I don’t use this term very loosely but you my dear are a true rockstar. Keep doing what you’re doing 🙂
