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 »

simply sunday – one tin wall – vancouver

i’m a few days late with march’s simply sunday. Last week i was floored by a kidney infection & i’m only just coming up for air. Illness is such an amazing place for learning – i got to dip into letting go, surrendering, trusting & allowing. And i found a whole well of gratitude there. How’d i get so lucky?View full post »

a few favourites from 2010…

i’m a part of an online photography forum – great inspiration, great pro help, encouragement, fun. We were just asked to choose 3 favourite photos from 2010 & post them on our blog. How to choose? I’m sure if i had to do this once a week, my choices would change, depending on my mood, how quirky i was feeling, the feel of the light coming in my window. But for tonight, these are the 3 i chose… 2 sweet weddings & 1 of my favorites of 2 of my favorite people.View full post »

1 year ago – family

i’m still squeezing in some time to work through our photos from our trip to europe early last spring. I’m having a fabulous time looking back through the days. Photos are this amazing reminder of moments past – a way to relive the memories & hold them, fresh again, warm in our hearts. I’m amazed by how much i would forget if i didn’t have these visual reminders. here are a few frames from our last moments in belgium with marc’s family… all theView full post »

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 ifView full post »

new year, new blog, clean baby

as the title suggests, i’m launching a new blog. And this is it. Welcome. And in good time, too… in time to welcome in a new year as we wander out of the last one. Which was a big one in our family – my son graduated from university, & as one of my daughters walked into marriage the other walked into toddler-hood. Milestones. I had a full busy year, with work & family life, & always trying to find that sweet spot of balance between the two. An on-going learning, iView full post »
