Kelsey and Mike Say I do

When I walked into the Old House Village Suites where Kelsey was getting ready, my jaw hit the floor. Kelsey looked stunning and was beyond well styled, from hair, to accessories and of course dress and makeup her look came together flawlessly. Add to that her giggly smile and stunning blue eyes...

Yes, this is a post about make-up

I have been avoiding this post, even though I knew it was coming. Am I really going to blog about makeup? A post about makeup from the gal that is lucky if she has her lipstick on straight and puts on her makeup while, brushing her teeth, talking to the kids and drinking coffee? You betcha. This is...

Angela & Allen Say I do

The day was perfection for Angela and Allen. They were drawn to a Vancouver Island Wedding and the weather couldn't have been more "Island Style." There were blue skies, then some puffy clouds and of course some West Coast wind, which was a beautiful backdrop for their "I Do's" at Miner Gardens....

Girls Tribe - Lily, Autumn, Elizabeth and Renae

Girl tribes, being a household of gals and growing up very close to my sisters and mom, I was pretty pumped for this session. In they came, laughing, talking, telling me stories.

Going to my happy place - Rideout Family

Christine and I just spent what seemed like as long time reviewing scheduling, checking in to see where we can accommodate a few more sessions and looking at the (gasp) fall schedule. It was kind of gruelling, it felt parallel to "a painfully long bank line up when you are in a hurry and your child...

Bailey and Reed - Engaged and Glowing

The light, really was glowing, it truly was this warm. Fitting. I first met Bailey almost two years ago when I travelled out to Franny Bay to photograph her and the fam. Bailey told me it was a little place on the water. I pictures a small cabin. I was wrong. Their family has a beautiful sprawling...

Alex enters the world

See the little rolls on Alex's wrist, really look at them. Can you help not smiling?Parents Tonia and Peter were made for this. Not only do they make really cute babies, but they seem so at ease for new parents. They were super relaxed during their whole session, and  it seems many parts of...

Since Grade 5

 Some things are irreplaceable. Such as Togan. We met on the first day of Grade 5. I moved to a new school, I dressed carefully, my plum corduroy capris (okay, I think they were actually knickers,) and my mauve polo sweater, which I proudly received as a gift from grandmother. It was the wrong...

The summer came just in time

Thankfully the summer holiday came just when it was time. It is time for me to walk into the kids room in the morning and tell them to take their time getting ready, it is time for me not to have to say "you need to hurry" three times a day, it is time for me not to get frustrated when the 7 year...
