Grand Ridge Dr., Cambridge, ON

About 

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I'm the owner and photographer at Vanessa Berzak Photography. I'm always loved taking photos. When my children were born my love of photography took on a whole new meaning. I tried to capture every moment I could as they grew. Not only the holidays and birthdays but the everyday moments, the ones I know I'll want to look back on many years from now.

 

In 2013 my love for taking photos led me back to college. I graduated from the Conestoga College photography program in 2016 and I haven't put my camera down since. I'm grateful to have been capturing your memories since then!

I have a small home studio located in the West Galt area of Cambridge. I love photographing children and as you can see from my images, I love to get in close and really capture their personalities. Meeting all of the little ones that come to my studio is one of the best parts of my job! 

The other side of my business is dance photography. A competitive dancer in my youth I love being able to combine my love of dance with my love of photography. Whether it's full studio sessions at recital time or individual dance portraits. Working with dancers is pure joy! 

I'm happy you stopped by the website. Take a look around and if you have any questions send me a message. I'm always happy to help and I love connecting with you!
