Dillon Family Ranch - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

Not only did I shoot some buff bodies last weekend but also made it out to one of my favorite places in British Columbia. Westwold is located in the heart of Crater Valley, 60 kilometers southeast of Kamloops and where you will find "Kuda Paradiso". I was lucky enough to spend some quality time there with my friends over the last five years. Her parents had moved overseas and needed someone to take care of the property while they were away. On this visit I was there to shoot her whole family, four generations.  Too many great shots for one post so stay tuned for more

My Salon in Chinatown - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

I think I'm like most woman and maybe some men that are really loyal to their hairdressers. When I lost my hairdresser last year to the film industry I took a long time to find a new one. I asked everyone I knew for recommendations but none of them clicked until I read about a new salon in Chinatown on "Vancouver Is Awesome" blog. I love the "Coup Salon" and my stylist Spencer. Every time I head down there I go early and bring my camera. I love the colors of Chinatown and the salon is just a block away from "Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden".

Kelowna Body Building Competition - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

I had a great long weekend and completely filled 56gb of memory cards. I will have lots of great posts in the coming week but I wanted to put up a quick preview for one my oldest friends who competed in a body building competition in Kelowna BC this past weekend. She came 1st in her category which I was so happy to be there to witness. I'm so proud of her for all her dedication and hard work in the gym.

Paper Hug - Vancouver BC Photographer

Its not every day you receive a paper hug in the mail. It's not every day you receive anything in the mail but flyers and bills. Today could have not been a better day to receive it as my father-in-law was having surgery, my Grandmother passed a away a few days ago and my father is battling cancer in a hospice in Burnaby. Its definitely too much for our family to take right now but when I checked the mail today it sure made me smile and lightened the weight on my shoulders just a little. The sender of the "paper hug" is the lovely Erin Boniferro who came in to my life a few years back when she was dating a friend of mine. They are no longer together but lucky for me we stayed friends and I will be shooting her next month when she gets married. I wanted to share this wonderful gesture with the blogger universe to show you that yes the little things do make the biggest impact.

Modeling the paper hug is my 18-year-old diabetic cat Oreo. (she hates the camera)

A Beautiful Non Wedding - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

A few weeks ago on a very rainy day in Vancouver I headed over to Ambleside to shoot an intimate gathering at The Beach House restaurant. There was a beautiful bride and handsome groom but there was no wedding. This was very unique experience because I usually spend the day with the bride but this time I met her coming in the door of the restaurant. The couple plan on getting married in a civil ceremony when they move to Montreal but they wanted to have a get together with friends and family first. We were lucky to have about a thirty minute break in the torrential downpour to shoot a few pictures outside.

Visiting with Hawksley - Vancouver BC Based Photographer

My circle of friends has been growing rapidly in the last year with the addition of all the new babies. My husband and I are lucky to have all these little ones in our life. I look forward to giving Hawk lots of sugar, getting him all excited and handing him back to his parents.
