Welcome, I'm Daiva Greenidge, and I have the best job on the planet. I'm a mother. My second best job is being a photographer and that is because it allows me to record my children's childhoods and capture the love, as I see it, within other families. I first picked up an SLR camera over twenty-five years ago and instantly fell in love with photography as a hobby. I graduated from the Television Production and Broadcasting Program at Algonquin College in 2002 and worked for several years as a Production Manager in the television and film industry.
In the spring of 2009 I had a major health scare and I had to reevaluate everything about my life and focus on what was truly important to me. I started recording every moment we had together fearing that we wouldn't have many. When I was sick I felt like I had lost control of my life. I used my camera as therapy and it calmed me to know that I had the power to capture my love for my family, as I saw it, with my camera.
After several months I pulled through my illness and knew that it was time to make major changes. I decided to start doing what I love to do best as a career. It was a logical choice as I have always been the one that friends ask to take pictures of birthdays, weddings, vacations and special events. It has always been clear to me that photography is what I should be doing...
And so, Lambs and Ivy Photography was born!
Since then, we have welcomed my son, Myles to the family and it has been so amazing to be able to have professional sessions with him since the day he was born. It would be my greatest pleasure to capture YOUR children's special moments. I like to use natural light in my images. I can come to your home or we can shoot outside in a park or a shady place of your choosing. I look forward to hearing from you.
