Erin & Ben

Erin & Ben were married on the bride's father's Salt Spring Island property.  A backdrop of arbutus trees and ocean views provided the most beautiful setting for the ceremony and reception.  This fun and down-to-earth couple even welcomed the idea of taking a short trip in the family's row boat. Congratulations, Erin & Ben!

Allie's 5th Birthday

Allie's 5th birthday party was full of fun and surprises.  Andrew and I loved the chance to work with this family again and to collaborate on this piece together.  Allie's Mom, Ashley, brings so much beauty and personal touches to all of her gatherings, which makes our job as image makers super easy.  Happy Birthday, Allie!      

Time Flies

It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since I photographed Sarah & Mark's wedding.  These days, they are both accomplished professionals and devoted parents to two young daughters.  I loved catching-up with them during my recent trip to Toronto. 

Gratitude

Much has been said about the powerful effect of expressing gratitude on a daily basis.  In our hurried lives, it takes conscious effort to pause and reflect on our many blessings.  When I do carve out this moment for myself, I always feel lighter and more grounded in what truly matters. 

I am continually grateful to the families who choose me to photograph them.  I have been photographing Kerri & James since their eldest son, Quinton was a small baby over 12 years ago.  They have since grown to a family of six.  While I was in Toronto last month, we met for our annual nature walk near Lake Ontario.

Documenting the same families over the years is definitely one of the highlights of my work.   

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, everyone.
