Family Vacation Photos, Rathtrevor Beach Toni and her family traveled from Ontario this past summer for a vacation on Vancouver Island. They decided to have their family photos taken at Rathtrevor Beach in Parksville to capture this memory. It was a celebration of everyone being together as well as her Mom’s 60th birthday and her sisters birthday as well. We spent some time in the Douglas Fir forest and the […]
Family Photos at the Beach, Qualicum Beach This beautiful family hired me to take family photos at the beach in Qualicum Beach at Christmas while they were all in one place. Throughout the session, a couple of people commented, “I don’t know when or if we will all be together again.” Some family was travelling from California, another from Kamloops. The great grandparents live in Qualicum Beach and had everybody […]
Date Night! Dad and Daughter Time. William and his sweet daughter Aubrey were on a dad and daughter date that night. He took her out for a Tigh-Na-Mara dinner and wanted to spend some time at Rathtrevor Beach with her. Just the two of them, one on one, time spent together.

This is a popular surf, camping, beach combing, and hiking destination in Port Renfrew along Vancouver Islands West Coast. It truly epitomizes that rugged, raw beauty when envisioning West Coast. Those that visit are washed […]
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.
I actually have three jobs at the moments, and I am passionate about all of them! The first is pretty obvious; I am a wedding and relationship photographer. My other part-time work is as a photography tour guide with Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours in Parksville. I take people to beautiful Oceanside parks and help them to use the manual settings on their cameras and talk about the region. I love […]
Gold River Adventure This past weekend I took my partner to Campbell River for a couple of nights to celebrate his birthday.

With immense rainfall and severe winds of 80+km/hour, loss […]
