Hi, I’m Kathleen Neufeld! I’m a photographer based in the Burlington, Ontario area. I have three boys and yes, it’s very busy as people ask me often… and loud. I cry easily at happy moments…. milestone moments like baby’s first haircut, annually on the first day of school and everyday moments when love is so pure and real.
I take pictures to document the little details so they can be remembered and cherished for years and years to come. I’m a dweller on moments past, so photography is some form of therapy for me. I know I’ll always be able to remember just how my baby’s toes curled under as he stood for the first time, or how those dimples in his cheeks only appear with his shy smile. Lifestyle photography has been a long time passion for me and I’d like to capture your precious family memories and moments that today seem ordinary but eventually will be even more special and cherished.
My favourite subjects are my own kids, families and I wholeheartedly adore newborns, older babies and toddlers. I love the hot summer weather, the east coast and standing at the edge of the ocean. It is my absolute happy place. That, and Disney World. I love all things Disney and have a blast chatting about favourite rides, restaurants and resorts, especially if I’m in the middle of planning our next vacation! From time to time I blog images of my own children and our adventures, you can peek in on those posts here.

Often people ask me what inspired the development of my
business name. Hope + Salt Photography is the
combination of my two favourite quotes.
hope is the only thing
stronger than fear
the cure for everything is
sweat, tears, or the sea
