I had the sweetest pleasure of photographing a past bride and groom along with their beautiful daughter last week. I joined Jon, Nikki, and Xsenia on a gorgeous Fall afternoon out in the Mt Lehman area. There was exploring, snuggling and lots of giggles and smiles. Xsenia, who will be a year old next month, was such a delight, and clearly has her parents smitten with her.

Many thanks and much appreciation to you three!


Andrew and Sam have been together eight years and will marry next Fall at the gorgeous Fraser River Lodge. And after our time together at their engagement session this week, I can’t wait! These two were so much fun as we explored the beautiful and scenic Pitt Lake area and documented this exciting time in their lives. Andrew recounted his proposal, word for word, which had him on bended knee in a boat while they drifted upon on lake, totally catching Sam off guard. To Andrew’s relief, Sam said yes and he kept the boat afloat while kneeling to pop the question ;)

Sam and Andrew, hope you two enjoy these photos even half as much as I enjoyed taking them…

    Such a cute couple!! And those colours! It definitely makes me want to have fall last just a little bit longer this year :)ReplyCancel

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…
