Engaged and In Love; Camping in Pachena Bay for your Engagement Photos When Jack and Charlotte first inquired with me about wedding photography, they mentioned that having their engagement session at Pachena Bay Campground would be their ideal location. Pachena Bay is located very near Bamfield and requires a lengthy travel on gravel roads to reach. From Victoria, for them, it would take just over 200km, much of it on […]

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 […]

It might even be my favorite beach, and trust me, there are a lot of incredible ones on the Island. 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 […]

~A Vancouver Island adventure family photoshoot~ It was a pleasure photographing this ocean-loving family last week at Beachcomber Park in Nanoose Bay. Ocean must be an inherent gene in these four, as little Brooke got her diaper salt-water soaked within the first five minutes- she was compelled to play and find rocks in the water, and handsome Trace just couldn’t keep his eyes off of the ocean. This was their […]

Hilarious, they were quite entertaining and showed their true character in the images. I met […]
