Kathy, Gillian and making it body positive - Goddess session

Earlier this spring I returned a call from someone that was interested in having me join her as part of her work addressing the multitude of issues women face in loving their bodies. What was intended as a quick phone chat turned into an hour of gushing, agreeing and both getting goosebumps - and...

Strength and beauty in a snowy maternity session

My blog was broken for the last few weeks and it still is a bit moody. So, I have 6.5 blog posts that are swirling around my head that I am itching to write. I need to start with my session from yesterday because it couldn't have been more fun and meaningful, plus this mama to be is in her final...

Comox Fitness Portrait - Tanya

I am always honored to photograph women, but when it is someone who I know has been thinking about it for a long time I get a little extra excited the day of the shoot.   Tanya and I have known each other, since I started going to her coffee shop 15 years ago. In the last few years, we have had...

Roberta by the river - Goddess session

The Body Shift program which I  co-facilitated earlier this year at Studio IPF was full of an incredible diverse group of woman, most of who were new to me. A perk though, was getting to reconnect with some woman who I call my "Comox Valley Roots." When I first moved to the valley  I didn't know...

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...

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...

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...

I just had a total meltdown, but this helped

I just had a melt-down. I am working on a school assignment, the first one I am not enjoying. I read the words, and then I read them again. I moved from my school desk to the patio.  I tried again.  Still there is a piece I can't make sense of.  I can't walk away and come back to it tomorrow,...

Comox Valley beach beauty photos - Tina

Earlier this year I co-facilitated a program at Studio Inner Pursuit Fitness, with owner Leanne Z.  The program, called Body Shift, focussed on shifting self-perception and mind-set towards  exercising from a place of self-respect, rather then from a place of " not being enough." The Body Shift...
