highlights 2010 – vancouver island family photographer

i love my job. And rooted in that, like a plant in soil, is my love of family. It’s what nourishes me, gives me strength, helps me grow, keeps me stable & grounded, connects me to me & what utterly delights me in my days. This love of family. Of this wonderfully eclectic group of folks who have found their way into my life, through birth & relationships, across countries & cultures, lives shared. We are a non-traditional bunch & the titles can get confusing if we’re ever forced to actually think about them (step-this & 2nd-that), but we don’t really. What we know, what i know, is we are family… kids, parents, cousins, siblings… brought together through love & commitment & the joy of getting to discover who we are together.

and i do love photographs. Always have, at least as long as i can remember. Those old faded polaroids & 3″x5″ b&ws that filled our family albums with the stories of those days. So what could be better than getting to spend my time hanging out with families, capturing their connections, moments & magic, love, laughter, sweet silliness & joy in photographs? We come in all shapes & sizes, with different colours & costumes & customs, but underneath all of that, like the underbelly of a iceberg, is the fullness of our sameness, our humanness, our love for one another & for our moments shared…

i am so very grateful to all the families who shared these moments with me in 2010. For your open hearts, your willingness & your fun. For all that you are, together. And for inviting me along on the ride. I look forward to seeing some of you again in 2011 – to witness the growth & changes, the wonder of aging, the shifts & delights of another year together.

here’s a taste of what we shared…
