just after the holidays, i got together with caitlin & drew to celebrate these weeks before the arrival of their babe, the beautiful fullness & wonder of caitlin’s body busy creating a brand new human. And what better way to collaborate than with a hornby island lifestyle documentary maternity session? I love winter sessions… they’re a break from the hope that the sun will shine, & they so often include grey skies, soft lighting, shawls & favourite sweaters, easyView full post »
I had the joy and pleasure of following stacie and adam through their gorgeous wedding day in 2016. It was a beautiful fall day at sea breeze lodge where these two promised their lives to one another. And since that fabulous day, their dynamic-duo has become a trio with the addition of sweet olivia. Over the winter holidays, stacie & adam traveled back to sea breeze with their new little. A chance to step away from the city & relive the joy that swept them up on their weddingView full post »
2017 is coming to a close & on this shortest day of the year (happy solstice!), i thought i would take a few moments to reflect on some of the love & wonder i’ve been working on this fall season.
however you celebrate, wishing you & yours a happy holiday season. And a sweet slide back into the light & wonder of a new year.
here’s to 2018!View full post »
sharalin’s hornby island lifestyle maternity session
my gentle, powerful, kind, determined, strong, open-hearted, oh-so-beautiful niece sharalin & her sweet little man, in the days before the arrival of their newest little. Wrapped in the warmth of hornby’s late summer sunshine & right here at our little cabin by the sea.
so much love to you all, my dear bean. Thank you. For all you are. With all of us. And for the gift of your 2 amazing little guys. And that fabulous big guy,View full post »
vancouver island beach side lifestyle family session
bobby & i met online. We’re both part of a blog – our littles collected – a group of working photographers who once a week post a photo of our littles. So we’ve seen more of each others’ kids than each other. The roots of an online friendship. Bobby was coming to victoria for a wedding & emailed to see if there was a chance i’d be down that end of the island the weekend they were there. And, as it sometimesView full post »
i met up with michelle & patrick & their oh-so-delightful girls for a vancouver island lifestyle family session at cattle point in victoria. The day started out stormy, the forecast was for rain & we had some back & forths about rescheduling. But they decided to pack changes of clothes, their rubber boots & brave the storm all together. And, as the weather often does, things changed… the winds settled, the clouds lifted & even the sun made an appearance nowView full post »
heading to victoria + spending time with baby lenny & his happy mama & papa + snapping a few newborn photos = a whole lot of happy for this photographer/grandma. How’d i get so lucky?
wee lenny is as sweet as they come… all cooing & gurgling, sweet lip pursing, open eyed wonder & still sleepy, sleepy newborn loveliness. Such a whole lot of yum. And fun. His parents are settling happily into their newfound roles & routine, hearts full & much delight &View full post »
it’s an incredible gift to get to be a part of watching someone grow up. To have been given the opportunity to love & care for little people who weren’t born of my body but were certainly born in my heart & mind. Whose lives have helped shape mine & whose love has shone light in my darkest corners & made my bright spots a little brighter. And then to get to see them all grown up, in love with someone amazing, married & one day, one very special day, toView full post »
The night before baby len’s arrival, ryan, midori & i walked around their fernwood neighbourhood in victoria for their maternity session. Late day, early evening, fading light, so much fun & laughter, anticipation & deep, sweet love. These two warm my heart right through. They are parents now, days later. Finding the groove of getting life done in few hour increments. All while falling deeper & deeper in love with their sweet love bug, lenny valentine. Photos ofView full post »
