Winter family portraits - Kitsilano Beach

On what seemed the coldest day ever in Vancouver I dragged a California family down to the beach for some pictures. Fortunately we didn't have any wind that day but with the snow capped mountains in the background it was hard to leave because everyone hands were freezing.

Winter in Vancouver -Vancouver BC Based Photographer

At the beginning of the week it started to feel like we were living in Winnipeg. I should know because I lived their for a winter and my husband is from there. Today of course we are right back to the rain after it snowed all day yesterday. We were tempted to go clear off the car but seeing the weather report for today we knew it was completely unnecessary. On the coldest day this week I decided it would be great to be outside taking pictures. There was still snow on the ground and the sun was out. After a family shoot my first stop was Queen Elizabeth Park and to my surprise the fountain was still running which made for some beautiful frozen pictures.

Home Sweet Home - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Wow what a fun work trip I had to Mexico. It was great to see some old faces and meet some new ones. It was a long travel day home yesterday and unfortunately for my friends and family I had my phone off and was totally unaware the explosion that happened that morning. So very sad to hear about all the people that lost their lives.

The lovely bride and groom that I shot won't be home for another week so I won't post a preview until then. In the meantime here is a view to daydream about...

B-Grade Horror Festival - Whistler BC - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

For those who know me know that I love Halloween and count the days until I get to dress up in something crazy. For the last nine years I also have had the B-Grade Horror Festival to look forward to the night before.  Started by my friends Feet and Chili the night has turned into the party of the year with over 1000 costumed horror lovers coming to get their fill of fake blood and sub-par acting. I was allowed to shoot some stills on the making of the new intro film created by the amazing Stu MacKay Smith, my brother from another mother. The whole thing was shot against a green screen so I was completely clueless about the story until it was shown at the festival. It was awesome. Here is a small sampling of the behind scenes action.

Fun Times at Collage Collage - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

I love shooting birthday parties at Collage Collage. Its always a stress free shoot because its more about documenting the birthday then forcing them into posing for me. Plus the little ones are ridiculously cute.  If you would like more info about having a birthday party at Collage Collage go to
