hornby island lifestyle maternity | emi

hornby island lifestyle maternity session i met emi at her lovely hornby home, & after a visit with the baby sheep & their mamas, we spent an afternoon slowly walking around helliwell. The kind of sweet, easy walking that often happens with women in late term. When a lie down in the grass or a sit by the cliff edge watching the fish swim by & looking for cactus is welcome & there’s no need to keep an eye on the clock. The sun got low in the sky, the air was warm & itView full post »

So i’m grateful to capture some of these moments when all is well in our world & she’s shining, as she does… view full post hereView full post »

intimate hornby island wedding | ryan & midori

one of the greatest gifts there can be is the opportunity to stand back & watch our kids marry someone wonderful. This post is a sweet celebration of just that. eight years ago, midori & ryan crossed paths, for a few sweet weeks, before she headed back home to japan. And their dance began. And it’s been a joy watching them find their way through the years, through different countries, different homes, changing careers paths, directions, hopes & dreams. To watch themView full post »

hornby island photographer | wrena

my niece wrena is heading back out to the bush. Off tree planting for another season & joining up with an awesome company i worked with for many years, many years ago. There’s something wonderfully full-circle in all of that, for me. She’s a lover of photography, too. So she & i took a little time together to play, with the trees, by the beach, for the joy of it all. View full post »View full post »

vancouver island family photographer

it was about a year & a half ago when i received the sweetest message from nycky-jay. The beginning of a now cherished friendship… two photographers with same aged littles finding our way through the dance of our days. We were pen-pals for much of it (in the modern cyber-space way). And when we finally met in person, it was like getting together with a dear friend i hadn’t seen in a long time. Truth be told, i’m sure that’s actually how it is. nycky-jay is theView full post »
