it’s always a gift to be asked to photograph new babes. Those first few days or weeks with a new being in the world, family changes, deep love. And perhaps more so when it’s friends who invite me in to capture a little of their story, their new lives unfolding.
many thanks amanda & rob, nana & your littles, for sharing your afternoon with me. For these moments…

i’ve done this every year for the last few years… taken the time, early in the new year, to look back through the weddings i photographed the year before. And what strikes me most, year after year, is how absolutely grateful i am to the people who trust me to capture their wedding day in photographs. Who open their hearts & share their love & anticipation, kindness & caring, their friends & family, great food, fantastic dance moves, hilarious, heartfeltView full post »

it was the end of summer. I met with lea & andrew the day before their wedding to walk through the details & timing of their day. And it was pouring. West coast, soaked through, down pour kind of pouring. And they were calling for more of the same for the next day. It felt right, in a way, these two so used to being outdoors, in the elements – skiers, mountain bikers, outdoor adventurers. And it had rained at our engagement session (you can see that loveliness here). So all wasView full post »
brennan & ian’s day was amazing. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
i’m not surprised. When i first met them in victoria for their engagement session (check it out here) i knew i was in for an incredible ride on their wedding day. And i was. SO.MUCH.FUN. So much incredibleness. From the moment i arrived, i was bounced around in bubble of love & delight, full of laughter & celebration. It was a big gathering but everyone was so connected it felt intimate & easy. And they chose theView full post »
caitlin & drew are a bit of magic. Truly. They have a spark, intelligence, grace & enthusiasm that is a little mesmerizing & a whole lot of fun to be swept up in. And so was their wedding day. Celebrated at the laid-back splendor of seabreeze lodge on hornby island, caitlin & drew & their crew filled the island with their joy & kindness, leaving trails of love & wonder like footprints behind them. As caitlin’s mom so beautifully said in her toast to the brideView full post »
one of the strongest human connections i’ve witnessed is that of a couple newly parenting twins. Take two people, with their hearts wide open, push them to their limits of sleep deprivation & demand, & you have a knowing, an understanding, a pure, raw connection that is a blessing to witness. Thus are emmy & aaron. Forever changed by the wonders that are their beautiful daughters, finley & hazel. Dear friends, honest & brave & full of fun & so much caring. ItView full post »

here’s what a family photo session package can look like. A bit more of an investment, to be sure. And a whole lot more satisfying. Memories of your day as art for your home. To last a lifetime. Or two…View full post »

a look back at some of the moments, many of the faces, the feelings, the promises, love, laughter & joy i was blessed to witness last year.
to each of the couples who invited me along & trusted me to capture your wedding story, thank you. I am so honoured & so much richer for having witnessed your walk into marriage. I am deeply, immensely grateful for the opportunity to be immersed in such days of delight, of love shared, of vows spoken, of hearts wide open with the wonder of itView full post »

If today, like every other day
we wake up empty and frightened.
We don’t have to open the door to the study
and begin reading.
We can take down a musical instrument.
Let beauty be what we do
there are hundreds of ways
to kneel and kiss the earth
