It flew by. Saturday we celebrated three kiddo birthdays in our home with our extended family. Two of them were my sons, my oldest and the youngest have August birthdays. The other is sweet, little Molly, my niece who just turned one. A day full of visiting, food, cake, presents and hopefully it was packed […]

Raising boys keeps moms cooking, cleaning and running from son up to son down as they say. God made little boys so stinking cute so we would scoop them up and snuggle with them even after they just tore through a room with mud on their shoes (or if it is one of my boys […]

Our house is still dripping with candy and I don’t see it going away until summer. Once Halloween comes the holidays, which keep the kids fully stocked, hit at a regular clip until Easter.  My oldest is the type who will finish his last piece of Halloween candy the day before trick-or-treating again.

“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” — “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery I am pretty sure my heart grows three sizes, just like the Grinch, each time I spend time with adorable families […]

The connections people have to their first home are strong. The pride of home ownership. The feathering of one’s nest with collections and home goods which bring a sense of comfort.

This shoot felt like a scavenger hunt. We drove around searching the urban landscape for places to take photographs. A broken window and old peeling posters, an olive wall, a loading dock.  It was fun to see where the afternoon would take us. Katie was a trooper through the heat until a brief nap in […]

Photography comes to me through my heart. When I am able to spend time with people and start to see into their hearts is when magic can happen. I love this first image of Evelyne.  It speaks to a part of me which longs to be carefree and childlike in my adult world. When I […]

I told you it was too hard to choose. What a lovely family with beautiful girls. A few in color a few in b/w for fun. 

The Feeney family were such good sports. The brisk March weather was brutal on the little ones while we wandered around Vancouver taking family photos. At least Mother Nature kept the skies dry for us. It was too hard to choose what to post. I get butterflies when I see the photo of the sisters […]
