Cleanse to keep it interesting

Because I am adverse to routine, I tend to throw myself curve balls. I know, weird right? Well that's just me. After a roller coaster diverse few months, things were settling back into routine, so then it became time to mix it up. So I dove into a nine day cleanse - just to ensure I didn't get...

Lola - Comox Valley Newborn Photographer

She is six days old in these photos and already has expressions that remind me of her gorgeous big...

A couple of babies, oh my

I love photographing twins and a big part of that is to put me in my place. I had it easy. Parents of twins, I bow to you - twice. Meet Anthony Roger and Micah Gabriel. They were just lovely for their shoot. They took turns giving me adorable expressions and are bursting with adorable beauty. Thank...

Karen's Love List

Every few weeks I was writing a love list and it seems to have fallen by the wayside, but I am bringin' back the love baby (sorry, couldn't resist.) Technically a list only needs to have two items and because it's a holiday weekend, I think I can get away with one. For the last few days I have...

The Penney Family

Do you think it would be too off wall to bring back arranged marriages. Here's the thing. We have four daughters, who of course we would like to one day be in loving relationships. If I was to pick a handful of fella's for each of them to choose from that wouldn't be throwing us to far back into...

Nicholas and Taya - Courtenay Children's Photographer

She had me at hello. Ok, well not really, she had me at "I picture something colorful." I love it when clients come with ideas. Nicholas and Taya also came full of giggles, personality and so much cuteness. These twins were so easy to work with - they kept us well entertained and were wearing my...

Danielle + Justin = Engaged

When I asked Danielle to tell me about her wedding, she didn't miss a beat.  But she didn't tell me about the guest list, the flowers, the dress - she told me about her wedding, and why it mattered - she told me about her fincee Justin and why he mattered and why she loved him. Honestly,...

Glenice + Donna = Engaged

Glenice and Donna brought the word tenderness to their session. They probably don't know it, and didn't even expect it - they ride motorbikes, say what is on their mind, play roller-derby laugh often, so tender might not be what one would be expecting. We started our session on the beach and they...

The Haas Family

I create many sessions that depend on a family member coming from out of town, and as you can imagine, I have a little extra anxiety when I look at the weather report. For the Haas family the report was tickety-boo. We photographed this session at their beautiful property in Royston though and the...

My new neighbours? The Tinga family

I love the street that we live on. There are big trees and mostly great neighbours. However, there is a whole contingent on our street who never seem to leave their house, unless it is to get in their car and drive away - so I am thinking they could use replacing. In my mind, (and apparently...
