hornby island family photographer | the youngs

i had SO much fun photographing this fantastic hornby family. karen & jed & their 2 littles are a fabulous part of our hornby community… they host easter egg hunts on their beautiful farm, hook up an incredible rig to tow all the kids around the neighbourhood on halloween & give a lot back to this place. We’re lucky to have them, as neighbours & friends. Jed bought karen this session for her birthday & so, lucky me, i got to spent the afternoon bathed inView full post »

hornby island photographer | wrena

my niece wrena is heading back out to the bush. Off tree planting for another season & joining up with an awesome company i worked with for many years, many years ago. There’s something wonderfully full-circle in all of that, for me. She’s a lover of photography, too. So she & i took a little time together to play, with the trees, by the beach, for the joy of it all. View full post »View full post »

vancouver island family photographer

it was about a year & a half ago when i received the sweetest message from nycky-jay. The beginning of a now cherished friendship… two photographers with same aged littles finding our way through the dance of our days. We were pen-pals for much of it (in the modern cyber-space way). And when we finally met in person, it was like getting together with a dear friend i hadn’t seen in a long time. Truth be told, i’m sure that’s actually how it is. nycky-jay is theView full post »

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.

hornby island wedding photographer | lea & andrew

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 »

hornby island family photographer

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 »
