keeley & chris

i’m thinking back on keeley & chris’ day. Searching for the words to describe how i witnessed their walk into marriage. And i’m finding it difficult to describe ‘magic’… that vibrant-amazing-something that happens sometimes when two people, their family & friends, gather to celebrate their love for & commitment to one another. It’s like wonder, delight, sparkle, calm, sweetness & heart-wide-open wonderment all rolled into one incredibleView full post »

lauren, jeff & mr. mason

i had the very great pleasure of photographing lauren & jeff’s wedding last september. Lauren was 5 months pregnant then & they were so excited about their big day & that their baby was a part of it all. Unexpected delights. And here they are now… almost 10 months later, with mason just days from his 5 month welcome-to-the-world. A big bundle of love & fun. So many smiles & all that lovely chunka-chunka baby delight.

the kaback-mills

meet andrea & david & the house of small girls… it is always an honour to be asked to photograph friends – to be invited into their world in a different way, with the intention of stepping back to see their moments & relationships unfold & capturing little pieces of that wonder & magic. And creative folks are truly such a blast to photograph – nothing posed or staged or wished for – just free license to explore in photographs moments in time, a pieceView full post »
