Hi, I am Stephanie Pristine.
I am a professional photographer, a graduate from Photography and Digital Imaging at Holland College.
You’ll notice that in studio I take a clean approach to my sessions (except in the photo featured — heh) and outdoors I like to enhance the location aspect. Don’t be fooled by my personal style, specializing in children and family photography means that I am not afraid to get messy.
Who am I?
I’m fun, I’m silly, I’m sometimes awkward and when needed, I’m loud. I’m a natural redhead with a calm, do-not-panic attitude. I’m an aunt, a wife and a best friend. I love coffee, I love running, I love the colour pink and I love glitter! I sing the words all wrong —on purpose! I’m all these things and so much more, I’m an investment in your memories, your loved ones, your moments.
When you hire me, you hire a professional who truly cares about you.
You hire someone who wants you to enjoy your session, enjoy the moment because these photos are moments. Moments are our memories! Someone who is going to spend your session working hard to capture as many moments as possible.
When you hire me, you get a friend, someone who isn’t afraid to quack like a duck if it is going to help get a smile from your little one.
Interested in finding out if I’m the right fit for you? Why not reach out and we can grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of whiskey — I know a place!)
Other things about me?
My spare time is spent with my two nieces, voluteering in my community and teaching beginner running programs.
Five fun facts?
1. I still shoot film in my spare time.
2. I have two cats… Tom and Jerry.
3. I am a huge Montreal Canadiens hockey fan. #GoHabsGo
4. I’m Celiac (an auto-immune disease that prevents me from digesting gluten).
5. I strongly believe in professionally printed media and offer this service to all of my clients.
“Pristine Photography is our exclusive family photographer. Since my son’s birth Stephanie has been there every step. Most recently she did his second birthday shoot and the images are simply stunning. Her creativity is astounding and her theory that memories are messy is on point. She goes above and beyond to get the shot and to make the shoot fun! I recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for amazing and creative photos! I cannot say enough good things.”
“Stephanie is simply the best. She will work with you to create the exact photos you are looking for while capturing candid moments along the way. We never feel rushed and the final product is beautiful. So glad we’ve found such a skilled and passionate photographer to capture life’s special moments!”
“I have used Pristine Photography since 2016 when my second son was born and we did a newborn session with him at 8 days new and my oldest son who was 18 months. I had never met Stephanie but she was so incredibly patient, accommodating and relaxed which was amazing (and necessary) with 2 small children.
We have come back for all of our family session after that! Not only is Stephanie professional but she is perfect with the kids and always manages to get THE shot!
No matter the mood my boys are in (or us”
