While I don’t support all the wars that have been waged, I will forever support those who have had their lives irreparably altered due to war whether that has been through serving their country or living amongst the chaos of war. Lest we forget: peace is possible.

What a beautiful day it is was for Leanne & Taylor’s wedding! While I tend to fall in love with all my clients, L&T kicked it up a notch by keeping me in stitches all day long. My stomach and face hurt at the end of the day from all the laughing. Thank you so much, Leanne and Taylor, for having us there on your most amazing day. Thanks, Shealyn, for capturing the day with me! The beautiful ceremony and reception were held at the Westin at Bear Mountain and the wedding party photos were taken at the historical Fort Rodd Hill.
Welcome to the Boardman’s slideshow from our recent family portrait session. They were kind enough to support my Rent-A-Keri fundraiser to help get me up to Bella Bella to cover the Enbridge hearings and rally. I am so grateful for your support Shelly, Blair, & Brianna! Brianna has grown a bit since our “stitch in time” shoot and is cuter than ever. I recommend scrolling down to the bottom of the video player and clicking on the fullscreen icon in the lower right hand corner for the best viewing experience. Thanks for coming by!
A large anti-Enbridge rally against the Northern Gateway Pipeline happened in Victoria last Sunday. Hundreds turned out to the Legislature lawns before taking to the streets to march to Centennial Square. Once at the square, there was an afternoon full of workshops and panel discussions related to the environment, the energy sector, and effective ways to get involved in the debate. Here are some images from the day:
This is the second part of Lilie’s debut photoshoot. You can check out her newborn session here. For this one we headed out to Jordan River on a gorgeous morning at the end of October. Lilie’s parents love spending time on the beach and in the waves and I wanted to capture them in their element. It is always so nice to get out of town and head up our gorgeous coast. Three cheers for beach time!
I pulled an old Remington from my typewriter collection for this special session. Baby Nathan’s great-grandmother was a published poet and she always did her writing on a typewriter. Nathan’s mom has lots of memories of playing away and learning how to type at her grandmother’s. Sadly, while Nathan was still in his mama’s belly, his great-grandmother passed away. We thought this shoot would make a fitting tribute to her.
Here are a few magical moments from Stephanie & Brian’s wedding day. I cannot express in words the gratitude and warmth that I feel for this couple. Stephanie & Brian first met with me and subsequently hired me while I was still dealing with my inner ear issues and vertigo. Even though their wedding was a few months away I had no idea whether I would be healthy for it (I am still so jubilant and grateful that I am healed!). When they said they wanted to book me I replied that I totally appreciated their support and confidence but that this was their wedding and if they wanted to hire someone else I would completely understand. They told me that nothing is guaranteed in life. They could hire someone else and something could happen to them. They wanted to hire the person that they wanted the most. They wanted to hire me. I cried. Ok I waited until after the meeting and then I cried. I was so touched by their compassion and insistence. And the story gets better. Stephanie is an Athletic Therapist and she practices cranio-sacral techniques ( which can help ease vertigo). Stephanie not only supported and believed in me but she also helped heal me. Yes, she is that awesome. Yes, her husband Brian is that awesome. Yes, this couple is pure greatness. I love you guys. xoxo
