I'm a photographer, and this blog is all about sharing my work. Through the images presented here I hope you'll experience the fun, energy, honesty and emotion I have been entrusted to document.

I specialize in the photography of family history because I love to create memorable images of real life, both for you and for your entire family. If that sounds interesting, drop me a line. I’d love to talk with you.

Until then, welcome.

A Year in Gabriel’s Life, Session One


The newest Year in the Life project started in April when Melanie and Darren contacted me about their soon-to-be-arriving baby. They didn’t want to know if they were having a little brother or sister for Amelie, which is why I didn’t post these until I knew his name. That’s right, they had a little boy: Gabriel. But for the rest of this post, just pretend you don’t know that 🙂

This shoot was a mixture of maternity and family, and as you would expect the perpetual motion machine that is Amelie got into the action as well.

I’m looking forward to documenting the newest member of the family.



Nine months in the making

An entry about Portraits, tagged as ,

I’m happy to say that over the years I have been a photographer many of my clients have become friends. One such couple is Caroline and Tom. I first met these two about four years ago when I photographed their wedding and since then we’ve spent many the evening huddled over one board game or another.

When they let it slip that they were preggers, I talked them into doing a time-lapse shoot. Nine months later, little Vanessa popped out and we had some neat photos to work with. Here are three of the collages that are my faves.

The first is a rotation, and even though I got the angle slightly wrong in month three, it’s still pretty neat-o.

Here’s a close-up of month one vs month 9 🙂

Good thing we picked a stretchy top. It also matches my blog colours nicely  🙂

This next one worked out aces. My fave single image is the second to last one. It’s also really clear which image was taken right after they returned from 2 weeks in the Caribbean 🙂

Congrats guys, and thanks for indulging me 🙂
