Bunny - Vancouver BC based Photographer

I don't even know how to start this post. I have written and rewritten it so many times because it didn't seem enough. This shoot meant a lot to me not only because Pilar is one of my closest friends but I wanted to capture her in the right way in one of the most important times of her life. Her life is about to change in such a wonderful way which will also change how we spend our time together. She is a complete original and I can not wait to meet the beautiful little one that will benefit from that.

So excited to meet you Bunny.

Fort Langley Visit - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Last week I drove out to Fort Langley to have coffee with my oldest friend and her little guy, Luke. He is definitely the most stylish local in that town.  This isn't Luke's first appearance on my blog.  You can also find him here and here.

Rainy day blues - Vancouver BC Based Vancouver

If I'm having down day for any reason all I need is to look at this face and I smile. It doesn't matter if I see her in person, hear her cute voice on the phone or look at a picture I took of her. After the rain we received here today Vancouver we need a cute little face in our life.

I love Big White!!!

I had the best time at Big White last weekend.  It was my first time up there and had a really great experience. My close friend runs the design department and gave us the extra push to come up for some riding.  I lived in Whistler for 10 years and I must say it kind of kicked Whistler’s butt. The snow was amazing and we weren’t standing in lift lines all day.  They also have a lot of great activities to do after you are finished on the hill like tubing, ice climbing and skating. We headed down one of the slower tube runs with our friends 1 year old for his first ride. He got faced washed the whole way down and loved it. With inexpensive lift tickets and all the additional activities right at the base its much more attractive for families gateways than Whistler.

I wanted to send a special thank you to senior management Michael J. Ballingall and Blair Ireland for the unbelievable treatment we received and for making our first visit to Big White so amazing.

Check it out for yourself

Home from Big White

Wow the drive from Big White today was long and a little sad. We had to say good-bye to our closest friends but the mountain also received 30cm of fresh champagne powder which we didn't get to ride. Tears. Sniff.  We had such a great time. More pics tomorrow when I have had a little rest.

The Importance of Thank-You

It only takes a moment but it means so much. In my house growing up the importance of saying please and thank-you was huge and still is to this day. It doesn't matter what it is for when someone takes the time to call, email or write the recipient always feels appreciated. This week I received the sweetest thank-you note for a wedding I shot in Mexico in November. They didn't have to send it as I was there to do my job but it certainly made me feel great to receive. Thank you Mr. &  Mrs. Van Eyk!

Birthday time in North Vancouver - Vancouver Children Photographer

I don't really remember my 8th birthday. It may because it was sooooo long ago but being born on the 26th of December it all kind of blends in with Christmas. I love to shoot in new locations so I was curious to see what it would be like at the indoor climbing center in North Vancouver. I think the birthday girl will remember this one for a long time to come.
