Archive for March, 2012

When I first decided I was going to pursue a career in photography, I never imagined all of the benefits that would come from it. There was the obvious – getting to grow as an artist and learning how to be a business owner. I didn’t expect that I would meet some of my best friends as we all learned and grew together.

I am so lucky to be a part of a small group of photographers who initially met because we wanted to challenge and help each other as we developed our businesses and craft. That part of our friendship is still there, but it is now overshadowed by deep friendships that have formed. I adore these girls but we are spread all over the USA and Canada. We make a point of getting together once or twice a year for girls’ weekends – I leave these weekends energized and refreshed. These girls bring out the best in me.

This shoot was done at the end of our trip to Vancouver, Washington.  There were 6 of us shooting at the same time :) This is Amber Anderson (an amazing photographer) and her beautiful family. Amber is an inspiration to me – she has an eye for beauty and is one of the kindest, smartest and gentlest people I know. She loves her family fiercely. I loved having the opportunity to capture them hanging out and being themselves.

Amber – thank you for all that you do for me and our little group. Your strength, dedication to your friends, your humour and your ability to love so wholeheartedly is such a blessing to us all. We love you! <3


I just heard from this family to set up their baby’s one-year session! I figured it would be good to show some of the newborn images from last April before we finished the next session! The focus of this session was on their relationship as a family. I loved the simplicity of this shoot. It was all about the pure love between parents and child. I can’t wait to see how they have all grown together.

We’ve been having some amazingly warm weather this March! Between that and going through sessions from last summer to blog, I am getting SO excited for the warm weather shoots coming up this year!

This was a fun family shoot at the Governor General’s Residence. A huge expanse of trees and paths for us to explore!This family was looking for some updated photos to decorate the walls of their new house. They wanted fun, authentic photos of them being themselves.

It was an energetic shoot full of lots of love and cuddles and giggles. You can feel the love this family has for each other – the energy that they radiated was easy to capture! I love that they have such a sense of style (I think my favourite pieces were the little red converse sneakers!). Thanks N and S for the fun afternoon (and for your impeccable attention to details!)
