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.

It’s always better when we’re together

Even though this fall morning was so frosty and cool that I had to wear my mittens for the first time, I was grateful for the warm sunshine and another fun family to shoot. I always love getting together with this particular family for their session. They came well prepared with warm clothes, snacks and hot apple cider […]

LOVE these, May!! Thank you so much!!

If I could, I would give you the world

Last year this time, this lovely gang became a family of five and baby Ryan was just a little bundle of goodness. A year later, he’s crawling and exploring, happily picking up acorns, sticks and whatever he can find. He is simply an adorable little potato – I mean, look at that precious face! I’m seeing more and […]

Gorgeous as always, May! Thank you so much :)

You are the sunshine of my life

I’m beyond excited to feature this family on my web site! I had so much fun talking, shooting and laughing with this family – they were an absolute joy to photograph. We had the most perfect fall morning and I spent 99% of the time laughing throughout the shoot. I met Tracy in first year of university and I never thought I’d […]

Keep smiling, keep shining

When two special people Heather and Linda meet and become lifelong friends and later have two lovely daughters of their own, Zoe and Addie, and those two girls then become best friends with each other – well, it’s pretty darn wonderful. And fortunately for me, I have known both these ladies and their daughters for some time and […]
