One Second Everyday: April

It’s finally Spring in Victoria! April was full of flowers, showers, and even some sunshine. We celebrated Easter and enjoyed playing outdoors. We’re looking forward to more sunshine and more adventures as Spring continues to blossom. I’ve been recording at least a second every day since January 2015. Read all about this One Second Everyday project, […]

March Favourites

  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 […]

Kelp & Moss: Snowshoeing, Mt. Washington

  During spring break we spent a couple of days up at Mt. Washington. Sean and I used to go up with friends when we were in university, but we had never taken the kids. We’re not especially experienced skiers or snowboarders, so anytime we head up to the mountains it’s mostly just to play in the snow. […]

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 […]

January Favourites

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 […]

One Second Everyday

Remember those home videos from when we were kids? There’s the shaky, grainy footage of you crawling after the dog, blowing the candles out at your 6th birthday party, or that family vacation with everyone in swim suits. Maybe those videos got pulled out at graduation or your wedding. But now they are all on […]

Life Captured 365

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 — […]

Taking on the New Year

For a very long time I’ve been planning to start a photography blog and this year I’m finally making it happen! My goal is to create a space to showcase my work more frequently: personal projects, personal photography, and client sessions. I’m also aiming to share a little about myself and my artistic process. I share […]
