Introducing Cash - Comox Valley Newborn Photography

Sweet Cash. First I will gush about him. This little fella came earlier than expected, but he is a trouper and despite a little stressful start, is growing and developing like a champ. He was a little sweet-pea during our session, barely made a peep and kept me me - oohing and ahhing throughout the...

FRANTEL - Tender Session

I am coming out of the closet,  Frank + Chantel (Frantel) are my couple crush. I first met Chantel when she was dating and we did an instant and open dish about the joy (sigh) of dating. John and I hadn't met long before, so the memory of my bad dates with men in cover bands was still fresh....

My long weekend Part 1 - Hughes Family Session

Typically I work Saturday's but am typically firm about Sunday being time with family. And yes, sometimes I take a whole weekend off. This long weekend I photographed Thursday night, Friday and Monday, but Saturday and Sunday were chill time - that count's as a weekend off doesn't it? I...

I felt old, and fortunate - Outdoor Family Portrait

A sweet Friday night, one that finally feels like summer, I pull up to a favorite place, and suddenly I age. The lovely family that rolls out of the car did so once before with me, ten years ago - mom Tammy looks the same, gorgeous and natural, but Brittany and Jordan, now 16 and 18 were much...

Angela + Tim = sweet love

Young Loveit's the sweetest. Angela and Tim, have it all together, they are both doing jobs they love and they are in-love. I don't think they quite realize how it radiates from them. She smirked  as she told me about how she sits through "his" movies, they  gazed at each other when they...

Casey made-over

Casey was the lucky recipient of a recent Roots the Salon make-over which included a photo session. You can see her submission here. She was tons of fun to shoot, we played around in the studio and capture a few different looks - this one jumped out to me, she looks gorgeous and you know I love me...

some mornings are meant to be gentle - meet Meirah

If you follow me on facebook you know it has been a funny week. It is amazing how putting in a new computer system can mess with things. At one point yesterday I looked over at Christine and her head was laying on her desk. Of course, we are managing to add much laughter to our week - so the...

Besties

Do they come any nicer - Stevenson Family

I don't think they come any nicer than the Stevenson family. When we were planning their session mom Jennifer, kept saying I just want a nice photo of my family. Easily done. With their picturesque property and warm demeanour with me and each other, it was easy to get in the mode to photograph...

this blog post brought to you by a mac

I am a tad behind on blogging and such as we are switching things up. We are finally doing the pc to mac move. Why haven't we done it before? Well, I have been PC since the beginning of time and I am damn fast at it, if I don't say so myself, plus the thought of switching over all my software ......

Not crossing things off

We are mid computer switch over. Finally making a PC to Mac move. Yes, finally. So, I really have nothing to do at this moment. Which is odd, because I always have lots to do. Emails, processing, burning.. busy.. busy. But right now I can't access any of my information. So, I figure I...

Beautiful Women - Deborah

I truly wish all women could look at themselves and let the things they love about themselves roll of their tongue. I wish they could see their reflection in the mirror and say, hell ya! "This gal has something going on". I wish they could look forward to their own photoshoot thinking "wow, it is...

Meave and Frida - in my top ten

This family is one of my favorite to photograph. There I said it. I have favorites. I first started photographing them with the birth of their eldest daughter Meave and it was a click. Me and Meave got each other, and her photos have since be used on my website and magazine covers. Then little...

Williams Family - Comox Valley Photographer

This was the first weekend this year that if felt like summer, well, as long as you weren't standing in the shade that is. The Williams family and I have been planning this session for way to long - they had two, not one, but two freak eye injuries delaying their session. But, this time they were...

Long weekends are for family

I love  a long weekend, for me, and many other photographers it is about family - but not ours. It's a time when we are being the camera photographing families who have come together. The Brodie's were actually one of my first clients in the valley, I photographed them when son Chris was still...
