bio2016

My name is Kirsten and I am the owner and head photographer for Yellow Butterfly Photography. I have been taking pictures as long as I have been able to hold a camera and I still can’t get enough.  I love capturing the moments that we all love to look back on to remember a special time or event. I like to have relaxed photo sessions to capture you being you. Everyone is unique, my goal is to find out who you are, give you a fun and comfortable experience and then a beautiful finished product.

A little bit more about me… I am a baby mother of three little boys, and an animal mother of two pugs and one cat. I have a very loving and supportive husband who encouraged me to follow my passion and start this business in 2009.  A few more of my favourite things are definitely travel, decor, wine and party planning.

As mentioned above, my background in photography goes way back.  It all started with a pink Polaroid in 1987 and then many many cameras followed. I went to school for photography in 2001. Directly following my Diploma I took a job as a cruise ship photographer where I traveled to over 50 different countries photographing landscapes and portraits.  Now I am staying put in one of my favourite cities, Toronto.  I am very happy to say that I am finally living my dream and loving my job!
