Our friends have welcomed identical twin boys into their family! Meet Sailor Knox and Moses Bear…they are the tiniest, sweetest things, and are so very loved by so many. They were born into a home already bursting with energy and love, as these little ones make a total of five children for Derrick and Andie! What an adventure. I don’t think I could think of anyone else more capable, though. We are just oh so happy for them…

Handsome Cohen Grey was born to Marcus and Stephanie, a past couple of mine, and he couldn’t be any sweeter or more loved. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing these two on several occasions, including their wedding and recent maternity session at Larrabee State Park. This particular session with the newest member of their family, however, was pretty special. Every minute of it. And just wait until you see Stephanie’s decor style…it made photographing Cohen at home all the more dreamy…

So happy for you, Ortner family! Many congratulations and much appreciation.


Atilla and Fay were married in an intimate celebration by the water in West Vancouver. Surrounded by Fay’s close friends and family, 40 guests in total, they said I do…for the second time. Fay had moved to London in hopes of something new, and it was there that she met Atilla, who was from Cyprus. Last year the two wed in his hometown in the Mediterranean, and then earlier this year they had a beautiful baby girl! Their journey brought them back to Fay’s hometown to celebrate their wedding with her loved ones at The Beachhouse last weekend. There’s something pretty special about such a small wedding, and a ceremony performed by the bride’s best friend. It was a real privilege to share in their day.

Many thanks, Fay and Atilla, for having me as your photographer! All the best to you and your life in London as a family of three.
