Moments of perfection and joy | Tofino Vow Renewal

Moments of perfection and joy | Tofino Vow Renewal

I like people. I’m interested in stories and connections, and the fact that being a photographer allows me the privilege to get a glimpse inside peoples’ lives is something I greatly appreciate. It’s an honour to be invited into someone’s most important day, or to […]

Sunshine Maternity | Tofino Photographer

Sunshine Maternity | Tofino Photographer

Tofino has a reputation for inclement weather, and while it’s true that it rains like nobody’s business sometimes, we also get a lot of glorious sunny days, and basically no snow. Basically, I can assume that it’s going to be somewhat overcast on the day of […]

If someone knows a way to convince my kids that winter is upon us, please, enlighten me, because they certainly don’t believe me. We’ve had a few chilly mornings, but despite the fact that we are embarking on our second coastal winter, my children both […]

Take me back to summer | Ucluelet Family Photographer

And just like that, summer is over, has been for a few days now if you want to be technical about it. In September, I can’t help but observe how quickly the days grow shorter: The sun will set at 7:13pm tonight (while I shoot […]

Tell me a secret | Tofino Family Photographer

Tell me a secret | Tofino Family Photographer

Once upon a time, there was a little girl and she loved her mamma very, very much. As you can probably imagine, I’m behind the camera pretty much all the time. When my kids were even younger, I was constantly camera-in-hand. That’s not so much […]

Welcome to the west coast, where you can look left and see beautiful clear blue skies, and then turn to the right and see nothing because of the wall of fog. This May, I had the honour of photographing one of Ukee’s raddest families. I […]

Can’t get enough of this | Big Beach at Sunset

Can’t get enough of this | Big Beach at Sunset

My sister in law is visiting from Alberta. It’s great to see her (and nice that she can’t watch my kids while I cover a vacation at one of my random-ish medical office jobs – THANKS BAILEY) and it’s been pretty exciting to introduce her […]

Piña Styles: a love story | Ucluelet Photographer

Piña Styles: a love story | Ucluelet Photographer

It’s a beautiful morning in Ukee. It’s a crisp 4 degrees Celcius and the pink sky over the mountains in the distance is hinting at the sun’s imminent rise. My kids both slept in, but have stirred. We fell in love with Piña clothing and Angie […]

Family Photos | Ucluelet & Tofino

Right now, I’m sitting at my kitchen table, soaking up the cool sunlight from my dining room windows. The sounds around me: deafening joy of two 4-year-old boys in capes and masks. It’s the first time my son has had a friend over – not […]

Wild Pacific Trail – Amphitrite Lighthouse Loop | Ucluelet Photographer

Wild Pacific Trail – Amphitrite Lighthouse Loop | Ucluelet Photographer

I’m going to just confess this right now: when my kids are running around in places where there is an extremely remote and unrealistic chance of them plunging into the raging Pacific, I turn into a complete psychopath. I know I can’t be the only […]
