  • Welcome to my Blog!

    I hope you take a look around, love what you see and drop me a quick Hello. I’d love to hear from you!

    I am a wedding and portrait photographer located in beautiful Victoria, B.C. I am available in the Greater Victoria area, Vancouver Island and beyond. I photograph relationships in a relaxed, natural and timeless way. I want to photograph your relationships – who you are, how you feel about each other as a family or couple, the tiny details that truly capture who you are. I help guide you as needed so you know what to do in front of the camera and I capture candid moments where you don’t even know I’m there. I want you to have as much fun creating these images as I do.

    Let’s chat and see how we can work together. Send me an email using the contact form or call #250.472.0616.

I woke up this morning thinking about perceptions. It all started yesterday really. We get together as a family every Sunday night, each of us taking our turn for the week leading a discussion or activity. Last night, my eldest daughter had us write our names at the top of a piece of paper, then […]

I’ve never done this before, entered an image to I Heart Faces. But when I saw this challenge, this portrait popped into mind. So here I am. This was a lucky moment, a perfect moment. This sweet girl just happened to look up as she was brushing her gorgeous hair out of her eyes. I […]

There is nothing like a sweet, happy, calm baby to make your day. Last week, I had the privilege of photographing 5 month old Yovani with his parents, Alex and Yancy. Our session was delayed for a couple of days thanks to the snow, but it was important to get it done before Alex headed […]

A recent link on Twitter led me to a blog post at Stockhouse mentioning that one of the things most brides wished they had pictures of was the actual engagement proposal. The article states “In fact, the proposal is the number one wedding-related missed photo according to recent brides.” This threw me back to a […]

My husband and I went out to Niagra Falls in Goldstream Park last Sunday with our dog, Saxon. It had been years since I had been there and I really needed a date with my camera. I don’t know what it is about waterfalls that are so soothing  – the white noise? the raw energy? […]

This week I went back to my 50 Projects book for inspiration. I picked one of the most unusual themes in the book – walls. This is not something I ever would have considered interesting or a source for pictures. The author says that when he travels he always photographs walls. To him they tell a […]
