Christine - Goddess session

I shot this session of Christine a few weeks ago. The images feel so truthful to who she is. So I asked her to share her thoughts around what she sees and feels when she looks at these images. Chrissy, I appreciate you every day of the week, as we work together and as you pour your heart into what...

Arbutus Ridge Wedding - Diane & David

When I first spoke with Diane she started, not with information about her wedding day, but with exuberance about how she had to wait longer than expected but that she had found the "one" and he was more than worth the wait.  Quickly after meeting, these two knew that they had a future. Diane fell...

Goddess Session - Paula

This woman is so much. She is a leader, a connector,  a honesty injector, a cut through the BS kind-of gal, a giver of sympathetic head tilts,  a teacher, a question asker, a calming presence, a laugh inducer, the keeper of the best banana bread recipe ever, a solution giver and a  I don't...

Gowlland Harbour wedding - Justin and Jamie

Gone are the days of a wedding following a formula. They are about creating a memory, a marker in time, with your chosen, in a way that reflects who you are, surrounded by the people that matter. I feel so fortunate that my clients embrace this attitude. I relish that I am photographing them being...

A day with the Gorman Family

I spent a glorious afternoon on Denman Island with parents Julie and Brian, and their treasures, Kialan, Finley and Skyla, capturing the little moments that make up their beautiful life. There were cuddles to be captured, joyful minutes of sibling love that could quickly turn to annoyance and...

Painters Lodge Wedding - Emily and Cole

Like many great love stories, theirs began in a bar, but then it took a route that isn't quite as common. From the very beginning of catching each other's eye, they built a successful long distance relationship, making the five-hour trek from their respective homes, to be together and invest in...

Vancouver Island Photographer - Goddess photograph

To me, and the dictionary, a goddess is described as a woman of great beauty or grace. Angela is just that. Her beauty shines in her relationship with the ocean and nature, and in her role of a herbalist and expert on seaweed. Her grace is in her honestly and  genuine caring for others. These...

Courtenay Wedding Photographer - Nicole & Craig

Typically I connect with the bride before the groom, and it always interests to me to see how the bride "sells" her groom. Nicole was bang-on, when the first words she used to describe her hubby-to-be Craig, included, "he is hilarious."  What she didn't mention though, is how adorable she is when...
