13 years together, and she is still mine, and I am still hers - and today we celebrate her high school grad

13 years ago, she walked into the room, said hello, sat on my lap and handed me a book to read her. It's a moment that I will never forget. That is when I met Gabbie. I had been dating her dad and this was my first meet with his children. I remember it perfectly, she had a curiosity, a...

family portrait (throwback) beach session

This year I found myself falling deeper in love with family portraiture. As those in front of my camera share their memories of their first session with me and express what it meant to them.

Jenna & Brendan Vancouver Island Engagement

It's the end of the day and I have so much I "should do" as I wrap up my office work week. We are just getting set to deliver these images and I was moved to share them. I don't blog as much as I used to, (thanks and no-thanks social media.) I miss blogging. It is fulfilling, and also...
