About me

With my tagline of “capturing the art in life”, my mission has always been to decorate your home with art that tells little stories of moments in your life. Over 12 years later, I am so happy that this continues to be the focus at Tot Shots.

I’m Jody, the face (and yes, usually the silly face) behind Tot Shots. I’ve been documenting children and families for over 12 years. From the very beginning, my focus was to capture the feeling of your family and not just the posed milestone portraits. I take great pride in capturing what is unique and special in each child, whether they are more reserved or outgoing and love when clients say I have captured their child as they see them. Still to this day, I go into each session with full energy, love for what I do and the experience to put you at ease so we can capture beautiful, real and unique images for your family.

We then work together with my expert vendors to use the images to decorate your homes to help you enjoy these memories and remember the stories of your life through the years that we have been working together. I decorate my own home with special art pieces, that tell a story in themselves, that I have collected and captured through the years of my family. Being surrounded by these stories brings me a great deal of joy. It has been my goal from the beginning to have a long-term relationship with my clients so that I can help to document your continued story over the years. As you look through my blog, you will notice that many of the same families will continue to appear each year or every second year.

I would love to speak further with you to see if I am the best photographer for your family.

Along with my husband and 2 children (who are my constant source of inspiration), we are adventuring our way through life. After 5 years in southern California and over 50 trips back to Calgary to continue to capture my clients, we are moving back to Calgary the summer of 2017. We are excited to be coming home and working on the next chapter of our story:)!

My experience and education (MBA specializing in marketing) has also allowed me to work with some amazing commercial clients on their marketing campaigns as well as small business brand films. Information on these services can be found at Jody Boryski Photography.
