The still must tease with the promise of a story the viewer of it itches to be told

Hi my name is Christa Pauwels, I live in Markham Ontario Canada, and I am a contemporary portrait photographer specializing in glamour and creative photography.  I approach my craft with an open, creative, and playful vision that collaborates with the subject for unique, personal images. I am here to help you look inside yourself and see what has been there all along: a beautiful, fabulous, unique you! Tell me how you want to be photographed, and we can design a custom shoot just for you.

I want you to relax, enjoy and allow me to guide you through every step of this wonderful experience. I'm here to tell you that it's okay to be nervous or to think you're not photogenic, too old, or need to lose some weight. I promise to dedicate my full attention to showing you posing, connection and how to naturally position your body, so you will fall in love with your photographs.

My clients describe me as approachable, easy-going, fun, and highly professional. There is nothing I love more than putting smiles on people's faces. I look forward to meeting and working with you soon.
