Corissa is an absolute darling and working with her was a great time! From the first click of the shutter to the last she came to life, a natural infront of the camera, and a constant encourager when the camera was down. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.
Deanne glowed in the white blossoms that framed her face at yesterdays Spring Session. I adored this session, the start to the bright new season, and the epitome of springtime joy.
Have you booked your session yet? Come take advantage of this beautiful spring setting with me. I would love nothing more than to deliver high quality prints for you to frame in your home, and an experience that will leave a smile on your face!
I adore photographing off the beaten path, pulled into the wild, and inspired by my surroundings. Though Chilliwack River Road may not be far off or exotic, it definitely satisfies the itch to photograph someone in a beautiful setting. The mountains enveloped around us and a forest of tall beautiful green trees complimented Nicole and her dynamic beauty.
With a dark Red Vamp lip, and smokey eyes, Nicole came to life in front of the camera. Her personality in general is unique and those who have the pleasure of knowing her know the joy she is, her humor alone had us both laughing between shots.
It truly was a pleasure photographing Nicole, and I hope to work with her again in the future!
“All that is Gold does not glitter, not all who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; renewed shall be blade that was broken: the crownless again shall be king” – J.R.R.Tolkien
When the warmth of her golden glow sets fire to the winter snow, she comes alive with the power in her eyes.
I had an amazing time collaborating with Jennifer Marie last week, and in the midst of rain and snow she nailed an exceptional portrait session!
I have been watching the “Once Upon a Time” TV series, and this golden goddess felt like a page out of the old leather book full of folklore.
One reason I started down the path of photography was for the sheer pleasure of creating something of substance. Through the years my love of portraiture resulted in photographing countless amazing couples, families, and individuals. I can remember each fun memory, instant connection, and candid photograph that built me into the artist that I am today; sometimes however I crave the freedom to create work like this, no guidelines, restrictions or expectations (but my own).
In 2013 I had the pleasure of doing a fine art session with Ashley Young, a model I absolutely love working with. Ashley’s dancer precision and ethereal quality is rich in each photo. I wanted vulnerability, delicate qualities of the female form, and lush texture of earth to collide in a gallery of photographs that captured this essence.
I am currently attending University for the Visual Arts Diploma. In the process of taking courses like drawing, sculpture, and art history; I also must complete the required photography courses.
Yesterday we had the opportunity to work with strobe lighting. I already have some experience in the field with my own lighting gear but what made this exciting and new was the use of some of my wish-list gear; Profoto lights and big beautiful soft-boxes.
… I’m in love!
Below are three portraits of my fellow classmates, I hope you enjoy.

Laura Muir is a close family friend who I have shared many laughs with throughout the years. After photographing her sons graduation 2 years ago; she had talked to me about the possibility of a private portrait session. As life often does; we both got busy and I eventually moved away. With the trip down this week she was adamant that we meet up and finally do the photo-session.
Laura is a constant joy to those who meet her, her humor livens any conversation, and her compassion is true to a fault. I was honoured to spend the afternoon with her, and overjoyed with the summer sun that glowed on her beautiful face!
