Mothers & Daughters

M O T H E R S 

I had the pleasure to shoot this gorgeous mother-daughter duo at Queen Elizabeth Park. It was the perfect setting and they were dressed to match! I love shooting at this time of day, the warm sunlight filtering through bright green trees on a spring afternoon. Finding the perfect location sets the mood for the shoot, and did we ever have it. The mother daughter bond, the sweet dresses, the quiet location, it all worked together so well!

The mother-child connection is something you can’t just expect or ask for, it is a natural phenomenon that we are so blessed to be apart of. That bond is so rare and special, and these two depicted it perfectly! They were so comfortable with each other, and clearly the best of friends. It was such a playful experience to photograph their relationship – the games, the handholding, kisses & cuddles. 

Moms are a child’s FIRST best friend. How lucky are we?!


It’s all too often that the moms get stuck behind the camera, capturing all of the special moments and not be able to partake in the fun. I love sharing this time with moms, to allow them to be the ones on the other side of the camera for once. Not even to just be in the pictures, but to dedicate a time when it is JUST about the mothers and the kids. No expectations, no pressure, no “reason” for a photo, just a kid and their  mom “doing their thing”!

Mothers Day is just around the corner, so please contact me if you want to arrange something special with your little ones! 


To all of my past and my future families, THANK YOU.

Vancouver Photographer | Rock The Shot Challenge

I always forget to check out the Rock the Shot photo challenge, which is really too bad because I really quite enjoy looking at the images posted and also challenging myself to post a picture for the months challenge.  Posting a picture can be quite intimidating, there are so many talented photographers posting and also looking at yours!  Ack!  It is funny because I love clients seeing their images and know that they will love them, but other photographers?  Scary 😉  Here in Vancouver, well North Vancouver, I have a solid group of girlfriends who are also photographers.  In fact they are basically my direct competition…but it doesn’t feel that way.  They encourage, support, share and teach me and each other.  We have each others’ backs…for real. My point is, that even with these girls, my photographer friends, it is scary to share my work.  I know they’re behind me and not judging but, still scary……I guess part of it is the vulnerability of showing your work. It is personal right?  There is a bit of you in each photograph that you make, and probably a lot of you.  Putting that up for comment?!  Yikes!  But here it is, my Spring submission for Rock the Shot.  Be nice 😉  And thanks for  stopping by!
