Annabel is personality plus if you can’t already tell from the photos! She has a super quirky sense of style and I loved seeing all the outfit options she brought to the session we had. There was even a full head to toe Spice Girls outfit option – check out what was brought along on … More Working with an Aussie actress – Antipodeans unite!
I am a member of quite a few networking groups geared towards women, or women in creative fields around Vancouver. At these groups, you are often asked to pitch about your business, and express your “why”. I am not always the most social butterfly, or like being vulnerable in front of people I don’t know … More Why I chose portrait photography
This was our first full year in Vancouver, we still haven’t acclimated to the winter weather and I am constantly amazed that I don’t really need a full winter coat or socks on a regular basis – Geoff is testing to see if he can wear shorts the entire winter season. Although I would say … More 2017 – What a year!
I was talking with a friend the other day about how easy it is to become overly familiar with the way you light when you are in a smaller space, and end up stuck in a comfort zone. I am so feeling that right now with this larger space I am working in, and getting … More Rocking the red dress
Meet Holly – the woman who is helping other women batter through the glass ceiling and achieve goals they weren’t sure they would be able to in male dominated industries… I first met Holly at a networking group she had taken over in mid 2016 just after I had moved to Vancouver. It didn’t take … More Holly – helping women build the careers they deserve
Somehow I have never blogged about our Thanksgiving tradition with our “framily” and now I’m really sad that I never took my camera until this year (and also wondering HOW I never took my camera….). Geoff and Steve worked together at EA in Melbourne until it’s untimely closure (prior to which, Cari and I drank … More Reviving a Thanksgiving tradition in Sechelt
I have been working on defining my ideal client and who it is I really enjoy working with – shoutout to Dagmar my coach from Courage Space Coaching who has been awesome in helping me. In the end, I really enjoy photographing women in their mid 30’s and upwards, and specifically women who are going through … More Recreating a wedding portrait years later
Aneko caught my eye because she has such an awesome personal sense of style, so it’s actually no surprise that she has just recently graduated from Blanche MacDonald School to become a freelance stylist. We mixed and matched some of her items with things that I have accumulated over the years (mostly the sequins!) and … More Studio Light Portraits – Aneko
It has been a busy summer with shoots lined up at the studio space so that I can test some lighting. Working with a new space (and especially a huge new space), has been overwhelming at times. I was so comfortable with what I had been able to achieve in a small basement spare room … More Studio and Natural Light Portraits – Mckayla
I recently started shooting at a studio space on the downtown eastside of Vancouver, and it’s been interesting getting used to lighting a much larger space than I am used to. Oddly, I have found myself more likely to go and shoot in the natural light space instead of using studio lights. It produces some … More Studio and Natural Light Portraits – Maryia
