I love love love taking photos of people… it’s definitely one of my love languages! My website is currently being renovated, so in the meanwhile, welcome to my personal blog! Get a cup of tea and stay awhile! There’s lots to see.

So, first things first. Hi! I’m your friend neighborhood photographer and doula who is currently traveling around the country and the world, looking for gorgeous people like you to photograph!

Here are some favorites….

Whine. Vent. Grrrr. Feel free to skip this one.

Super frustrated. My photography site is down. Again. Fatcow is really determined to lose me as a customer it seems, and it’s about time I started believing it. I don’t want to be someone who can’t take a hint. LOL. Except not.

Anyway, lots going on… I’ll admit something- that’s usually the phrase I wind up typing instead of what I’m really thinking about… which is- can we find a match for Bay already? Get registered to be a bone marrow donor if you haven’t yet. Please. Thanks. I miss gluten. How many sessions can I fit in before I take a few weeks off for my sisters visit? Wanna help me find out? Hit me up for a session now!

Yeah. Pretty random in this head of mine. Anyway. I suppose I needed to say something about how annoyed I am with Fatcow right now. Out loud. To the universe. My next post will be more interesting. Ha.

My ultimate photography wish list – subjects and scenarios

I think about this all the time. Naturally. What I want to photograph and where. I’ve been pretty lucky so far in that my subjects have either chosen awesome locations/scenarios or have allowed me to choose a location and it’s worked out beautifully. Some I go back to more than others of course but I like having a long list of options and a short list of favourites. 😀

There’s a few things I’d love to try that I haven’t yet… if any of these spark something in you, drop me a line.

1. Intimate portrait of a woman starting her day

2. A family gardening, harvesting and then cooking together.

3. a homebirth somewhere light and serene

4. a birth in a hospital

5. pampered, glamorous you

6. A family playing and exploring in the woods in the rain

7. A woman and her dog

8.  A pregnant woman working (not tied to any specific work or idea of work)

9. A woman aged 75+ at her favourite activity

10. A man introducing his child to a loved hobby or passion, a place or activity that bring him joy.

 

What’s your ultimate photography scenario? You alone? Your kids? Your husband with your kids? Your home? A small field of flowers? The grocery store? A secret garden?

 

 

A mama and her two kiddos

This is a dear friend of mine and her two kiddos, plus the dog. I always think this is such a lovely thing to do, get pictures with just one parent or a particular friend or a sibling… something a little different than the usual family portraits… which I still think you should totally get. As often as you can afford/stand it.

Anyway, so we went to that old standby favourite- Pt Pinole and then played for a few hours and made some pictures! Here’s a few (okay, quite a few) of my favourites!
