My clients are important to me and they’re also pretty spectacular people. Most of the time, I work with people who are on the cusp of something big: a wedding, their first baby, a growing family with siblings who are eager to meet their new toy – I mean, little brother or sister. There’s excitement and nervousness that go along with each of those so, through Moment.us Photography, my job is to make the excitement as evident as possible and to help ease the nerves in any way I can.
I like my clients to have fun because I like to have fun (see below!). Laughter is important in my life and in my work, meaning I aim to run informal, interesting shoots that make clients feel good, feel alive and feel like they’ve just made the best decision around. If that means a quiet session in the studio, GREAT; if that means wading into the St Lawrence or rolling around in a field, COOL! I’m game for whatever we need to do to get those awesome shots, so talk to me: what gets you laughing? how did you meet your partner? what’s your son’s favourite game? what do you need to get the ball rolling?
Moment.us is based at home and I like it that way. Clients who come for consultations or studio sessions are welcomed into my home, not just my office. There’s space for new families and small groups, but I always recommend heading outdoors when older children or larger groups are involved. There’s change afoot for Moment.us and we’ll soon be moving to our new home, where seating for medium-sized groups will be possible, so if you’re not sure, just ask and we can discuss options.
So thanks for coming to visit! Have a good gander through the site and make use of the drop-down menus to work your way through the information available. You might want to have a good look through the categories as well.
Don’t find what you’re looking for? Use the contact page to let me know! Need more info? Ditto. Expect to hear back the same day because, like I said, you’re important to me.
About Ang Waterton
I am Ang: a Cornwall, Ontario-based photographer and owner of Moment.us Photography – a local business offering wedding, maternity, infant and family portraiture in-studio or on-location.
I am a lover of travel (especially Africa), photography (especially black and white), reading (especially suspense and historical fiction), cooking (especially Asian), and dancing (ESPECIALLY on tables). I have eaten my way through Vietnam, climbed Kilimanjaro, been called off a bus by border guards in Bosnia, picked watermelons in Darwin, Australia and am always ready for the next adventure.
Having moved back to Canada and, more specifically, to my hometown in April 2011, I am also a staunch supporter of small businesses. Small business ownership is a whole different kind of adventure – scary, exciting, nerve-wracking – and they keep our towns alive and prosperous. The clothing props (diaper covers, tutus, headbands, cocoons and that ever-popular hammock) are almost all handmade by local women. If you’d like to know more about them, look for Little Miss Headbands and Emma & Maddie’s Treasures on Facebook or Etsy.
After a four-month break to travel through New Zealand and Southeast Asia with my husband, I am back in Cornwall. The studio is fully operational, but will be undergoing a location change and, consequently, a bit of a facelift at the end of May – we’re moving! I’m very excited about welcoming people to the new digs in a month’s time, but for now we are open for business as usual at our location on Melba St. I hope you’ll come visit!
