just after the holidays, i got together with caitlin & drew to celebrate these weeks before the arrival of their babe, the beautiful fullness & wonder of caitlin’s body busy creating a brand new human. And what better way to collaborate than with a hornby island lifestyle documentary maternity session? I love winter sessions… they’re a break from the hope that the sun will shine, & they so often include grey skies, soft lighting, shawls & favourite sweaters, easyView full post »
2017 is coming to a close & on this shortest day of the year (happy solstice!), i thought i would take a few moments to reflect on some of the love & wonder i’ve been working on this fall season.
however you celebrate, wishing you & yours a happy holiday season. And a sweet slide back into the light & wonder of a new year.
here’s to 2018!View full post »
i’m just back from vancouver. From attending the refresh workshop with the oh-so-talented jennifer moher & hugh whitaker as part of the incredible arc conference. 4 days of inspiration, creativity, heart-opening connections, laughter, new friendships, great food, great music & a dip back into all i love about photography & my place in it. SO good. For the workshop, jen & hugh (who are humans-extraordinaire, no exaggeration) hired 2 of the sweetest people to model for aView full post »
vancouver island bc engagement – a session with alana & andrew at the oh-so-lovely neck point park in nanaimo.
i first met alana & andrew on a hot summer’s day in tsawassen to chat about all-things-wedding-&-photo. A bird pooped on me during our meeting on an outdoor patio. And alana, not fazed at all, took my napkin & cleaned up the offering on the back of my shirt. Having a client who’s a nurse can be a real bonus. I took the pooping as a sign of good things toView full post »
hornby island sunset maternity session
it was the height of summer. Hot beach days spilling into warm beach evenings, sand castles & conversations, swims & spontaneous suppers shared with friends. Long, lazy, restful days… when you’re on holiday, on hornby island. And all the more beautiful & precious when you’re wrapped up with your sweetheart, celebrating the growing little still tucked happily away inside. The last summer of life as a duo. I met up with charo &View full post »

jason has a long history on hornby island. He has family here & it’s been a big part of his life throughout the years. And in the last years, he & kimberley have made it a big part of their relationship. And it was in the sandstone caves at fords cove that he proposed to her. And so kimberley wanted to have their engagement session there. A sweet time to celebrate the beginning of their journey into marriage, wrapped in the place that means so much toView full post »
lisa & justin took some time away from their full busy lives to sink into some serious r&r here on hornby island & we met up for a maternity session. Beautiful evening light, warm ocean air, 2 fabulous people, 1 wonder dog, & a whole lot of love makes for some sweet times shared. Some wise little is growing up in lisa, getting ready for a life with these 2 fun seeking, world traveling, family loving individuals. I anticipate a whole lot of wonder & delight in theView full post »

i had such a blast stepping out of my island environment & photographing heather & luke on burnaby mountain in vancouver – an amazing backdrop for their engagement photos. And such a great choice… they met there at simon fraser university as undergrads, fell in love & have been wandering together through med school & beyond ever since. And i couldn’t be more excited about their late summer wedding at the gorgeous black rock resort in ucluelet.

i first met jenn & doug in vancouver & had a great time finding out about their lives together, their hikes & travels far from the madding crowds & their plans for their upcoming summer wedding at comox lake. A couple of weeks ago, we met up for their engagement celebration session in seal bay provincial park in comox, had a walk amongst the trees & then headed off to explore the coast. I had so.much.fun. And am uber excited for their july wedding.

meet julia & steve & their oh-so-delightful fur friend maggie. It has been said you can tell a lot about people by their pets. And if that’s true, julia & steve are exceptionally smart, fast, a little silly, full of energy, spirited, well groomed, gorgeous & as sweet as can be. I don’t know if dogs can be funny but julia & steve are that, too. It was an awesome way to spend an afternoon in vancouver… hearing about their story, their summer wedding dayView full post »

We started at iona park in richmond (a quiet hidden gem full of delights) & then joe wove us through vancouver just in time to capture the sun setting at whytecliffe park. Two fabulous locations, 2 different cities, a big fire under our butts & lots ofView full post »
