About the artist

Well, hello there!

I'm Aramenta Merise.

Family is everything to me. As the youngest of eight, I have looked up to my big brothers and sisters my whole life... and then I grew taller than a lot of them. They made me an aunt of 14 exceptional individuals who became my first photo subjects and some of my favourite humans. Now I have kids of my own and new milestones to capture. My family photos are my most valuable possessions. It's a great privilege to create custom heirloom pieces for families to pass on through generations. 

I've always been a photographer, even when I wasn't. I studied theatre in university and then went to college for graphic design, but I always gravitated towards the camera. I took headshots for my theatre friends. I incorporate photography in my design work whenever possible. At every family function, I have my camera ready. When I finally decided to make photography my career, it was like a light turned on. I absolutely love making a people feel confident by taking a good picture. My job is actually to make people smile. It's the best job in the world!

Your needs

I will work with you to plan your session and capture your most important subjects in the most stunning way.

Your journey

You are like a member of my family. I will take care of you, make you laugh, and make sure no hairs are out of place. I want you to feel completely at ease.

Your photos

I will meticulously create custom art pieces to hang on your wall, display in an album, and treasure forever.


Aramenta turned my vision into reality! She helped me prepare to take the perfect picture by helping me choose what to wear and how to prep! I wanted a little editing to highlight my favourite areas. Her knowledge and professionalism put me at ease. We had fun and turned out fantastic results. I can’t wait to work with her again!

We had such a great afternoon taking pictures with Merise Design. My boys can be high energy and a lot to handle sometimes, but Aramenta really got down on their level and made the whole experience fun. We have memories of a great day together and pictures to prove it!
