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.

“There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this.” I believe this to be true. We visited the beautiful country of Iceland in August (2016). It all started as a lunchtime discussion amongst my running friends, almost two years prior, the idea to run the Reykjavik half marathon and an opportunity to visit a country […]

So nice. Most people can’t appreciate the beauty of a grey sky. You’ve made Iceland a place I’d like to visit, with a Pentax in tow. 😉 How great is it that Air Canada just announced that it will now fly there?!

Loved your photos. You have inspired us to visit my grandparents homeland. Thank you for sharing.

You light up my days and fill up my nights with song

Another year has gone by and yes, another year of big changes with the kids I see and photograph each year. I always love seeing this sweet family and loving the connection between the kids and their parents, especially their mom who is always so lovely. Little Ryan, who recently turned two, was on a mission to […]

So lovely, May! Thank you for doing what you do!

And it’s gotta be a good life

This was another great session in a weekend that was jam-packed and although the leaves were almost gone, the forest was very beautiful. I always love shooting outside and being in nature whenever possible – especially for family sessions. We were even lucky enough to see a buck and about three deer during our session! Carson […]
