Moment.us is based in Cornwall, ON, but provides services throughout Eastern Ontario, Montreal’s west island, Toronto, and (because we spend a great deal of time there) London, UK and parts of North Wales (Llanberis/Caernarfon area).
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 groups, but I always recommend heading outdoors when especially large groups are involved.
Thanks for coming to visit! Have a good gander at the pages on 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.
Some random facts about me: I am a lover of travel (especially Africa), photography (especially black and white), reading (especially suspense and historical fiction – I would kidnap Jeffrey Deaver and hold him hostage Misery-style [without the craziness] if I had the chance), cooking (especially Asian), and dancing (ESPECIALLY on tables). I tend to laugh until I cry when I read posts from www.damnyouautocorrect.com. I was projectile vomited on by my nephew the first time we met (he was four months old and I was fresh off a plane from Asia) and I laughed hysterically. I have eaten my way through Vietnam, climbed Kilimanjaro, been called off a bus by border guards in Bosnia, picked watermelons in Australia and am always ready for the next adventure. When I’m not reading or on foreign roads, my guilty pleasure is serial-watching TV shows – Breaking Bad, Scandal, and Suits have all been watched in near-record time in our house.
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 largely handmade by local women. The shutters that appear in some of my newborn shoots were also refinished by Kate Dwyer, who is another local artisan. If you’d like to know more about them, look for Little Miss Headbands, Emma & Maddie’s Treasures, and Kate Dwyer Designs on Facebook or Etsy.
