Hello! I’m Lyndsey. Let’s capture some memories together!

I'm an award winning photographer, based in Whitby, Ontario, who would love to work with you to create simple and timeless imagery of your family. Every time you look at these images on your walls or in a cherished album, I want you to remember this time in your lives, and the feelings you have today. I want you to proudly display these images in your home, see your photos every day, and create a sense of pride and belonging in your children.

Lyndsey Thomas, Photographer

Wife. Mother. Photographer. Lover of Boston Terriers and the perfect latte. That’s basically me! But, I’d love for us to get to know each other a little better. I was born and raised in a small town in South-Western Ontario, and I moved to the GTA 20 years ago, where soon after, I met my amazing husband. We now live just outside of Toronto, in Whitby, Ontario, with our spunky little son and our sweetheart Boston Terrier. When I’m not capturing memories for people, you’ll find me rekindling my love affair with books, shopping at local vendor fairs and farmers markets, and dreaming about home decorating! I’ve been photographing families and newborns for 10 years now. I have earned my certification as a Qualified Newborn Photographer, which includes a component in newborn safety, through the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI), an association dedicated to safety and excellence in newborn photography. In 2019 I was honoured to win a 3rd placing in the APNPI International Image Competition, and in 2018, I won 2 awards in the Uncommon Creative Collective Image Competition.

I want to share a little story about why photography is so important to me. When I was a teen, I lost my dad to cancer. In those final weeks with him, my sister and I put together a photo album of all of our favourite photos from our childhood. We took it to the hospital and sat with him for hours reminiscing about all the good times, all of the memories those photos held for us. Sitting with my dad and talking about these times, pouring over these photos, is one of my fondest memories of the final days with him. Today, this photo album is the most important thing I own, along with new photos that document my life.

So tell me, do you have photos with the ones you love? Let’s get together and document the newborn stage of your new baby so the details are never forgotten, or future milestones as your family grows and ages. Let’s create modern and beautiful pieces to display in your home and cherish in your heart for many years to come.

    We booked our sons newborn session with Lyndsey after seeing a few friends’ newborn and holiday photos. She was amazing with our 8 day old and we’re in love with all of our photos. Lyndsey was always polite, professional and very quick to respond to any questions we had. We loved her so much we’ve booked our Xmas photos with her as well.
