10 pictures from our first day at the cabin since Thanksgiving last October.  Cabin opening is messy business, particularly when you are also building a deck and the sleeping cabin roof collapsed and you find 2 dead mice in the bread bin and nearly faint, but there is still so much beauty and fun in the chaos and mess.

Now please take the time to visit one of my very favourite people and her gorgeous photos here: Melissa Weicker.

52 Saturday Mornings | Week 7

"All you need is love"

Spent the perfect Valentines morning with my beautiful daughter, while the boys were skiing.  Leisurely morning with a book in bed, visit to our favourite beach, breakfast at De Dutch, trip to the bookstore (and the tennis store) and then to our very favourite stationery store in Granville Island.  

To see everyone's Saturday mornings, go here.

52 Saturday Mornings | Week 6

Early morning, sleepy and rainy (but beautiful) car ride to ski school.   I couldn't pick one picture last night, so the first is the view looking ahead and the second is the view looking behind.  Car sick Will clutching his Timbits, OJ and barf bag.  To see the rest, visit here.

5 Minute Project | Christmas Edition

5 minutes of all three of them, quietly doing a puzzle together.  Part of a Christmas collaboration we did over at the 5 Minute Project.  I'm pretty excited to continue this project in 2015 with 19 other super talented and inspiring photographers.  Truthfully, I find myself a bit uninspired during the dark winter months and hankering for summer on the island, so this project  will force me to get my big camera out and be creative. 

Spencer Family | Fall 2014

When Molly contacted me to do an extended family session at 11:00am outside on a bright sunny day, I was admittedly a bit reluctant.  But there was some urgency, because their Grama was sick and it became quickly apparent that this was a special, close knit family who would truly cherish the morning together in their Grama's beloved garden and cherish the photos we took together.  I am so grateful I agreed to come over and take pictures in my bare feet and mimosa in one hand.  Sadly, only a few weeks after this session, their Grama passed.  In the brief time I met her, it was obvious she was an amazing lady who was loved tremendously by her family.
