Crystal & Daniel Engaged

The engagement session, for me gives  the chance to get to know you as a couple. Where as the wedding day photos can blur by, the engagement session is a slow pace of photographing and chatting. It helps me see how you interact and helps me see the best way to photograph you. It helps my clients...

Celebrating Grad with Charlotte

Some people make a difference just when they walk in the room, - they are a deep breath, they make you look up, you take notice. Charlotte is that girl. Funny things she doesn't really know it - rarely do these true hearts know how others see them. I have watched her four years perform on stage as...

Gail & Albert 27 years

I  get emotional at weddings, the thought of someone celebrating their future  - declaring their love, of course I get teary eyed. Well when the couple in question has been married 27 years, when they still giggle and blush together, flirt and tease - when the portrait was a gift from their...

Congratulations Emily - Grad Session

I was so thrilled to create a session for Emily. She definitely is one of those "old souls" just look at her storytelling beautiful eyes. I have to say, my fave photos of her tended to be the more serious ones, where you are drawn right into those eyes. She has the poise and sense of self, and...

Alex expecting and glowing

I photographed Alex's first pregnancy in the studio and it was lovely to go outside and play this time around. This mama fascinates me - she has stories, experiences, brains and beauty. She is strong, she will wow you with how articulate she is, but she is also adventurous and sentimental - she...

Nate celebrating Grad

I was a little shocked when Nate's family called me to book his grad session, last time I saw him I think he was in grade 8! He was kind of a legend. My daughter went to day-care with Nate's little brother so I would hear third hand about his super-hero powers. What I found when I went to...

Jay and Steph - best friends engaged

  Jay and Steph have something I have always romanticized, they have history. Trust me...... I am happy that I didn't chose to settle down with any of my high school sweethearts, but when I meet a couple that has, I do feel some envy for the way that they know each other, their shared...

Mike, Lucinda, Elska and Emiko

When I moved the Comox Valley I literally knew three people, so whenever I re-connect with someone from my past, here in the Comox Valley, I feel a special kinship with them. I think of them as "my roots." Mike and I worked together in another life-time. We were in the service industry in...

The McNeil Session reminded me...

I had a family portrait taken when I was 8, I was flaunting some aggressive short ponytails, and some then awesome, now nasty, large glasses, and my favourite knitted sweater with strange 3-D bobble flowers. It is one of my prized possessions (the photo, not the sweater.) I look at the photo and...
