So my little cousin graduated this year and we made the trek WAY up north to her teeny tiny town to be a part of the graduation festivities!  Mollie was her candle bearer – someone who is gets the light of knowledge passed onto them.  It was a very cool experience for Mollie as she LOVES my cousin {M}.  {M} has been coming down to stay with me every single year since Mollie was born for one week during the summer.  It was always a chance for her to get to have fun in the big city, shopping for school clothes and generally sightseeing and relaxing.  Right now she is currently driving down here once again and should arrive tomorrow on my birthday! Except this time she is STAYING and going to university!!! She was accepted with a scholarship to Simon Fraser University!!!! I am so proud of her as that is my old university!  WAY to go {M}!!

Well its just another MACRO Monday!!! I LOVE messing around with my macro lens.  If I am in a bad mood or am feeling blah for any reason I just need to whip out the macro lens and go on the hunt for some flowers or bugs or interesting teeny tiny things.  A few weeks ago I spent no more than 5 minutes after the Sparks Spree (Girl Guide Fun Day) snapping pics of some cool flowers around Campbell Valley Park.  I finally got a chance to edit them and decided to run them through a haze process. It gives them a nice warm and calm effect I think. Don’t miss the little ANT on the very last flower!

I have posted about canvases before but since I had the recent canvas contest I thought I would post again!  Canvases are a WONDERFUL way for you to have truly beautiful artwork in your home at a fraction of the cost of framed paintings – not to mention WAY prettier since it most often showcases your own family!  I have a number of canvases on the walls of my house and people ALWAYS comment and admire them.  Canvases come in virtually ANY size you wish and look even better when they are grouped in bunches.  Recently I have noticed all sorts of consumer companies starting to sell canvases.  PLEASE USE CAUTION when purchasing canvas prints from places such as Costco or Walmart – the quality is just not that great.  The backs of the canvases are not finished and the edges are often not even fully wrapped around instead only stapled along the sides of the canvas then covered over with what appears to be black canvas-like tape!!!  I use a wonderful company who takes the utmost of care in producing a truly heirloom product.  Every canvas is finished off with hangers and perfect corners.  There is a UV coating on the front so that the light will not fade your print and the weave of the canvas is tight enough that you will only see a slight texture.   Here are some photos of the most recent canvases purchased by clients.

I went away skiing with my kids for Spring Break this year.  While I was there I did NO work but I did take my phone with me everywhere just incase someone needed me.  Well its a good thing I did because this little guys Mommy called while I was away.  I answered the phone while I was on a run with Mollie!  Her little guy was already 3 weeks old so we set an appointment up right away for the day after I arrived home from my trip.  What a little sweetheart he was! He slept and slept and slept for me – something which normally doesn’t happen with 3 week olds!

Mommy and Daddy were very sweet – I hope to see them again soon!

I had the pleasure of meeting little Miss {M} a few weeks ago. I knew she was going to be a cutie as I had done her big brother’s newborn photos almost 2 years ago now. Miss M did not disappoint and was just precious! She was awake for a little while but finally gave in to sleep and I got some fabulous sleeping photos of her!

I managed to get my two kiddos into the studio the other day to snap some quick Spring”ish” photos.  They did a great job and even showed each other some love! I have to admit I am VERY BIASED but I think they are awfully beautiful kids!

The Spring Mini sessions are almost completely full so contact me ASAP if you would like a spot! There will be live bunnies so you don’t want to miss out!

I can’t wait til K and B’s wedding this summer! They are having it in a forest!!! How cool is that??? K contacted me after finding my website on Google and we met up at the local Starbucks. We chatted about her wedding plans as well as her fairly recent move to the Lower Mainland from up north. I was very happy that she chose me to capture her special day as she is fun and bubbly something which makes photographing her a delight! We did K and B’s engagement photos at Blue Mountain Park in Coquitlam. The huge trees and neat stone art made for some fun photos. I can’t wait for your upcoming wedding guys!
