frannie & dan

i am blessed to call her my daughter. Grateful she married an amazing man. So fortunate to now have a healthy, happy grandson. Thankful they’re both so patient with me – we photographed this lovely session in august, less than 2 weeks before baby k’s arrival. I love her more than i can say…View full post »

for the love of shoes…

for a girl who spends most of her days in flip flops or rubber boots, you might never know i have far too many pairs of high heels tucked away in my cupboard upstairs. Rural life doesn’t afford a lot of opportunity to strap them on. Life has it’s pros & cons. All this to say i do love shoes. Especially statement shoes – shoes with character & style, shoes with a voice. And i love what these wedding day shoes are saying…View full post »

jala & ken

i love weddings. Truly. I believe in them… in wholeheartedly committing ourselves to our partner, speaking our vows, our promises, our hopes, witnessed by our family & friends, & celebrating the love we all share in the hours around that. It’s such a meaningful time, when our hearts open wide & so much seems possible. I am deeply fortunate to get to do what i do… to capture so many of those amazing moments in photographs. jala & ken rented the big house nextView full post »

ian & jules & family

it’s always a gift to get to photograph friends. And i’ve had the great pleasure of having jules & ian in front of my camera a few times this year… when jules was 6 months pregnant (with twins), with the 2 of them & their sweet dog olive just a couple of weeks before beckett & opal made their grand entrance, & then early in september, when the sun was still shining, the water was warm & the evenings were still long & luscious, with ian’s mom &View full post »

treleaven family

the last days of august brought the heat of summer, warm evenings, the gorgeous glow of the falling sun, long dry grass, sun tans & loads of sweet summer memories already being stored away for the winter ahead. I spent one late afternoon with cameron, marian, emma & hannah, oh & sunny, of course, just before they began packing up their summer home & heading off to adventures in calgary & london. Big shifts. Grand changes. As happens as our kids grow up & discover theirView full post »

anna & andy

this was a very fun day. Truly. Anna & andy were both so at ease on their wedding day, delighted to simply be surrounded by their families & friends, at andy’s parents’ beautiful home in union bay, over looking the straight. The day kept threatening rain & the wind blew steadily in the early afternoon, but by the time they met at the aisle, everything had settled & all was calm & sweet. Much like the spirit of their day… a whole lot of sweet, heaps of loveView full post »

christiane & simon

so often words fall short when i try to describe a couple’s day. My experience of wandering through such a powerful, intimate & celebratory day with 2 people so deeply in love, surrounded by the support & caring of their family & friends & all wrapped within an environment that’s meaningful to them, is hard to express in words. And so it is today, as i post photos from christiane & simon’s amazing wedding. How to describe accurately the buzz, excitementView full post »

vicky & dan

vicky & dan were teaching in a remote town in china this last year. So all our contact before their big day was via the internet. I am increasingly more grateful for the www for connecting me with clients. It’s lovely to meet couples before their wedding day & engagement sessions are a fabulous way to connect more intimately beforehand. And there is also a special magic that can happen when we all just arrive & open up to sharing their incredible day together. And so it wasView full post »
