This couple are pretty special to me. I met Jackie years ago when we worked together (as hairdressers). We always talked about babies and she was so excited to start a family. When I found out she was pregnant I was BEYOND thrilled. Finally, and after much anticipation, little Magnus was born. It's obvious that these guys prepared the right way, not with the acquisition tons of baby "things", but with knowledge and respect for the delicate few days and weeks of their little angel's life. Curt and Jackie are naturals, it really is magical seeing their new little family so full of love and light :) I hope you guys love them, It was truly my honor. Congrats again!

The holiday season always makes me mushy. I feel like it is such a great time of year to reflect and consider all of the wonderful things I have done during the year. I have this amazing job photographing so many lovely people, it literally feels like a dream. As this is my final session for the year and I look back on all of the experience I have gotten, I am filled with gratitude to for all of my clients. Whether you were one of my first sessions, or you took the chance on me to capture a moment that cant be replayed, THANK YOU. This next year is going to be great and I will continue to hone my skills. A few weeks back I had the pleasure of photographing Erin, Shane and Tori! Little Colton is such a beautiful baby and is absolutely so snuggleable! If you notice, his hair is just like his sister and mom, so I decided to photograph him against some green to bring out the red in his hair! Thanks so much for the opportunity to capture Colton so tiny and sweet! Wishing your family and every other family I have worked with this year a VERY Happy Holiday and a wonderful New Year!!

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of meeting Ramona at a local parenting group, so I was delighted when she emailed me wanting to get photos done of her new baby boy Tarran. As soon as I met Ramona and her husband Garet I knew this shoot was going to be great. Although Tarran wasn't a sleepy baby, he sure charmed me with his gorgeous smile and captivating eyes! Congrats on your new addition guys, he is truly a wonder gift! :) Enjoy!

This amazing family was the subject of TWO of my sessions last week. We headed out into the shivery, snowy weather and Lindsay was having quite a few contractions. Being fairly familiar with birth and the process behind it, and the fact that she was a couple of weeks early, I tired to assure Lindsay she was probably not be in real labor. Boy was I WRONG! our session ended at noon and by 3 am baby Orrik was here :) So this is the first dual blog post I have ever done. Talk about cutting it close! I hope you guys love your images, you are a truly beautiful couple and your new baby boy is absolutely perfect!

Halloween was such a great day! besides taking my amazing children out trick r treating I had the distinct pleasure of photographing a group of incredible dancers in a creepy Hallows eve location! Drak's Castle is well known by old time vally-ites but may be a secret to many. One of my best freinds Livea Gill's dance company is True Colours and I was so into it when she suggested this location to capture her dancers in a "creepy" vibe for their "lucid nightmare" theme this year. As you can see these guys were beyond amazing in bare feet and leotards in nearly sub zero temperatures!! :)

Another amazing Fall session this week, this time with the wonderful Boelk family! You may remember their beautiful little girl Tori from a session I did in the summer and now they are 40 weeks pregnant with their next baby, a little boy, who's name is going to be a surprise! They suggested Macdonald Wood in Comox to get some beach and woods scenery and it couldn't have worked out better! We got there early enough to catch the burning sun hanging in the crisp morning sky and some really cool cloud and reflection and silhouette images. Thanks again guys! Sending you positive, relaxing and utterly blissful birth wishes :)

I got to photograph this little cutie because her mom won the FireFly: New Beginnings Market Days draw way back in July! We finally met up on a drizzly day for my first-ever visit to the Sky Park down at the Courtenay bird sanctuary. Michaela is such a vibrant and care free little girl, it was so magical watching her play in leaves and be so adorable!
