The Color Chase Challenge is a monthly photography project focusing on one colour for each month of the year.
Whether you consider yourself a photographer, a mom with a camera, or an iphonographer, I challenge you to take portraits with intention more often. Anyone can do a 365 project; start right now. Make photographs of the people you love.
Some years I’m ready to jump into the new year with both feet. This year I’m wading in slowly. January is nearly through and I haven’t declared my New Years resolutions or inked out a to-do list on paper. The last months of the year tore by wet and hurried as a hurricane and I’m […]
I’m part of a blog circle this month so make sure to head over to das foto studio family and newborn photography and follow around the loop to see all gorgeous images from talented photographers around the world! Having my instagram lifestyle photography community for inspiration and motivation is what helps me get through projects like […]

March, and Spring at last! We usually start our spring a few weeks earlier here in Victoria. But this year we weren’t bragging about flowers in February or beach days in March. Our cold weather turned to wet weather and the blossoms reluctantly bloomed around the first day of spring. This was the dreariest […]
I ask my kids to participate in a lot of photo shoots. Usually it’s as simple as wearing a particular item of clothing to a specific location (I love styled shoots). Generally they don’t have to do much actual modeling, they just need to be themselves and I do the rest. Usually I have a vision and […]
I thought it would be fun to create a post showcasing my favourite photos at the end of each month. I share photos on multiple platforms, and some I don’t get a chance to share at all. So this will be a new way to put them on display. This photo of the children in the tree […]
Life Captured 365 is the most ambitious project I’m working on in 2017. This is my first time doing a 365 project, a popular undertaking in the photography community. I’ve done shorter daily projects but was always hesitant to commit to the full year. It’s not that it’s difficult or new territory for me — […]
