Christine and Richard Parksville Wedding

Christine and Richard chose Sarah McLachlan's song Ordinary Miracle as their wedding song. John and I were just listening to it and realized it is a perfect wedding song. I am actually quite surprised I haven't heard it before at a wedding - I like that it isn't your typical wedding song, as it...

Grayson Comox Valley Children's Photographer

Just a quick sneak peek as Grayson's mom is coming to the studio in just a few days to view all the photos. This is my fave. We have lots of smiley ones, but I often gravitate towards the images with that show just a little peak of a quirky smirk - just like this one. What a handsome fella'. Thanks...

sigh.... Grade 2, 3,4, 6 and 9

This morning I sent off a child to Grade 2, 3, 4, 6 and 9 - plus John went off to college. It is quiet. Normally I am very sentimental on the first day of school and excited about the fall routine, but today I am just kind of bummed. This summer was one of the best. With John not at school or work...

Jess Comox Valley Grad

My heart skips a beat when I head off to shoot a grad session, maybe it is because while hanging with the grad I get to pretend I am a teenager again. I know a big part of the thrill for me, is that I find grads always have so much expression and are eager to let loose and play. Jess and I had a...
