Vancouver Island Backyard Family Photoshoot Grandma and Grandpa moved to Vancouver Island a couple of years ago; Donna wanted to spend her retirement near the ocean on an island with less snow than Alberta. The only downside to moving to this beautiful place is that their children and grandchildren wouldn’t be as near to them. Time spent with family is precious, but it is even more so when there is […]
Will my wedding photographs come edited? If so, how much editing will you be doing? When I deliver the final set of wedding photographs to a client, they have been through my editing workflow and are considered “edited” and “high-resolution.” There are many different editing styles, and you can tell just by looking at a photographers portfolio work.

I photographed beautiful Piper on top of Little Mountain in Parksville last winter. We were waiting for a snowy day to go out and capture some images of her wearing a red sweater. This was her first shoot, and she rocked it! The lighting was amazing, (Golden Hour!) she was relaxed and comfortable with me, and the setting was unreal.

This was a just-for-fun session with Kierra and her bouquet of dried roses. It had snowed the night before, blanketing the mountains and giving a bright feel to our images. Cameron Lake near Cathedral Grove in Whiskey Creek is a beautiful location for shooting. Spring, summer, fall and winter, this is a go to location of mine.

She is studying music and also works in music, helping teach others how to play the instrument as well. On her birthday here, her mom also presented her with an unexpected gift; an S […]
I photographed Jillian for a mini portrait session last winter. It was a mild Vancouver Island winter day, and our thirty minutes together were dry and perfect! Our quick mini-session was very successful as we got a variety of poses and she ended up with quite a few head shots to choose from for grad portraits, new Facebook profile pictures, sending pictures to her family, etc. Grandparents love hanging their […]
With graduation approaching for miss Piper, she wanted some pictures of herself in a setting of blossom, color, and tranquility. A place near to her highschool, and a place she loves, we decided to photograph at the picturesque and enchanting Milner Gardens in Qualicum Beach. If you’ve never been here before, it is absolutely amazing. “Experience the magic of 28 hectares (70 acres) of unspoiled natural beauty perched on the […]
