Do you believe in magic? {South Surrey BC Portrait Photographer}

Have you ever been to Tofino?  If so you know that magic is real.  Tofino is full of the kind of raw beauty that causes one to feel small in the most wonderful kind of way.  I had the good fortune of hanging out in one of my favourite places on earth with a bunch of other photographer friends.  We spent the weekend learning together, having fun (and a glass [...]

Endless Summer....or not {South Surrey BC Children's Photographer}

  Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that you were high fiving the other parents in the school parking lot because you didn't have to make ANOTHER. SINGLE. LUNCH. for 60 days?  SIXTY!  Sixty glorious mornings of not having to drag your children kicking and screaming (or is that just mine?) to school.  Well my friends...that seemingly endless summer [...]

School starts when now? {South Surrey BC children's photographer}

So I woke up in a cold sweat this morning with the realization that school starts in a week! Friends, help a sister oldest little is heading to Kindergarten and I am panicking...for three main reasons: 1)  The thought of her being away from me every day all day makes we want to cry into my cornflakes. 2)  Getting out the door EVERY SINGLE DAY[...]

It's a journey {South Surrey BC photographer}

It's good to have friends in high places {South Surrey BC photographer}

Chiaro....what now? {South Surrey BC portrait photographer}

OK friends I am officially part of the most fabulous blog circle ever which is awesome for two reasons:  1) It makes me feel like I'm sitting at the cool kids' table 2) It forces my inner lazy self to try new techniques every month. Now, my excitement at being included in this awesome group of photographers was momentarily put on hold when I discovered th[...]

Babes in the mist {South Surrey BC Family Photographer}

The day of this shoot was crazy can't see two inches in front of your face foggy....and while I LOVE moody, ethereal images with low lying mist hanging about everywhere, I had my doubts.  Did I mention you couldn't see two inches in front of your face?  Well...about an hour before the shoot the fog finally started to lift and I am so glad it di[...]
