Photography by May Arason-Li bio picture
  • Hello!

    Thanks for stopping by. In case you didn’t know, I love photography and I am fortunate to be able to share my passion with you. I simply cannot imagine going through life without photographs - there are just so many reasons for taking photos. To remember, to relive, to share, to learn, to tell a story, to create, to feel... I could go on forever. The wonderful thing about photographs is that they are instantaneous. And as we change through life, so do the images we want to capture. I believe in capturing beautiful, modern images for modern families. More importantly, I want to capture the connection between family members. I care very much about getting to know my clients and having fun during our sessions. I am not trying to create the perfect image of you - rather, real images of genuine happy, silly, fun and tender family moments. This site features my most recent session along with some personal images peppered in. I am so thrilled to have met so many wonderful people and they have all inspired me in one way or another.

    Please enjoy the photos on this site and by all means, please feel free to get in touch with me if you think my style and vision matches yours.

Little doll

I always enjoy photographing Miss Sophie and her family. Sophie reminds me of a little doll – with her big brown eyes, porcelain skin and beautiful hair. Even when she’s not smiling for me, her lovely brown eyes say so much. Now a full fledged three-year old, she seems to have gone from a little […]

These are really great May! I think the serious look suits Sophie perfectly and you captured that serious face so well. Love them! Dinh & Wade – you are two lucky parents!

Wow! I love the one of Sophie sitting on the bridge. What a cutie and great family pics too. Great shots May!

Kayden – Four days new

The family hat trick is complete, according to this little guy’s daddy, just in case anyone was keeping score. They have now joined the Party of Five club, much to our delight (hey, we can’t be the only party of five around here)! Kayden was very quiet and sweet, and all he wanted was to […]

I really like the photo of the two sitting and kissing their brother. That will be a precious moment for them to look back on when they are older.

Nancy and Greg, much like us, were initially shocked that they had gotten the two for one coupon when they found out they were expecting. I can only relate to how they felt when they first found out there were […]

Oh my goodness! What precious shots. The boys are sweet-as-can-be and everyone looks so great.
Great work, May!

A little star is born

Welcome baby Carson. Your arrival was greatly anticipated by your parents, family and friends. It was with great honour and pleasure that I was able to photograph my good friend Kim and her husband Craig’s first baby in his beautiful, cuddly, sleepy newborn stage. Oh those newborn baby smells are the best – their hair, […]

Hi May,

Craig and I just want to thank you for all of the amazing pictures. You were so great with Carson, and really took the time to get many wonderful shots. There are so many to choose from we are not sure which ones to print!! We love them all.

We truly appreciate you and your great work. We will be calling you up to book first year photos when the time comes.

Kim and Craig

What beautiful pictures you have taken of our grandson (and his Mom & Dad of course). Thank you so much. I knew they would be great when I watched you at work. You're such a pro!!! I want to get some more family pictures done before Christmas and I know who I'll be calling. We'll be in touch soon. Thanks again, Donna & Joe

Growing family

Last weekend, we got together with one of our favourite families for a mini photo session and a playdate with the kiddies. Addie and Alex will soon be big sister and brother to a new family member, due to make an appearance in the next couple of weeks! If baby #3 is anything like his […]

Thanks so much May! Once again, these photos are outstanding. Thanks for sharing your talent. I love the ones with Addie and Alex hugging and the one of Addie with Cam and the one of the whole family where Addie is looking into the distance and Alex looks like the cat that swallowed the canary. (I clearly can't choose a favourite.) Great job capturing our family!

Great session! Love the photos of the kids hugging and also really love the one of the little girl hugging her Dad…too cute!
