2 Fall Photo Shoots

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of shooting some photos of some friends of ours - two couples in the same photo shoot.  It was later on in the day, so the light was fading fast, but I think we managed to get some great captures out of it.  We decided to head to Ed MacGregor Park here in Sooke.  There are some wonderful backdrops there.  It was a good thing we went on that day, because the rain started later that night and basically hasn't stopped since!

Here are just a few of the pictures.  Thanks Holly, Jordan, Rebecca and Cory for the fun photo shoot!  Hope you guys enjoy the pictures!

Halloween Mini-Shoots!

Ahhh, fall is here!  My favourite time of year.  And with it, the yearly tradition of costumes and candy.  The kids get excited about what they want to dress up as, and they're ecstatic and proud when they get to put on their costumes.  What better way to preserve all the cuteness than doing a mini photo shoot of your kids in their adorable costumes?  From now until Halloween, I'm offering these mini-shoots for $50 (whether you have 2 kids or 8!).  Book a date and time with me, and come to Broomhill Park where I'll do the photo session.  Later, receive 4 printed Halloween cards and see all the images from your child's (children's) photo shoot online in your own private gallery.  More prints and special items can be ordered from there.

Don't wait!  Halloween will be here before you know it, and this opportunity will be gone!  Email me today at to secure your booking.  Capture those adorable, happy, smiling faces and make those memories last - kids grow up too fast and before you know it, they won't be dressing up in those cute costumes anymore!

Out and About

I have been fortunate enough to be able to take the kids (and hubby when he's not working) out and about a few times in the last week or so.  We've been enjoying some of the last few warm, sunny days of fall before the seemingly never-ending rainy season hits.  I'll be uploading some more photos taken over the last couple of days in the next day or two.  Some of these will be in my Nature's Footprints gallery and include landscape shots taken in the Sooke area, and some of them are of my kids for my People Portfolio.

Next week, I should be doing one of my first "real" photo shoots of some good friends of ours, so please stay tuned for a few pictures that will be added to my portfolio.  I'm really excited to get out there and photograph this couple.  They're both naturally photogenic, and what a cute couple they are!

Also coming up is something that will especially be of interest to any of you local folk!  The first weekend in November will feature a show and sale at the Wren House Garden & Shop.  It's their one year anniversary, and there are some local artists (such as myself) who will have some wonderful little items there for sale.  If you're looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone, now is the perfect time to get it!  Come on out to 5701 East Sooke Rd. during the weekend of November 4th, 5th and 6th from 11am to 5pm!

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather!  Remember, there's still time this fall to have some beautiful outdoor shots taken of families, kids, couples, whatever you'd like!  Contact me to set up a photo session today.  Do you know anyone who is just visiting the area?  Suggest family photos for them as a keepsake they can take home with them!  Check out the packages and prices to the right of this page and email me for details.  There might just be a referral discount in it for you! ;)

Until my next update!

New Photos Posted!

Check out my website to view the most recent photos in my Nature's Footprints and People Portfolio galleries!

Fall always inspires me to take photos of the beautiful outdoors.  And although the colours here aren't quite the same as they are back "home" in Southern Ontario, they are still beautiful and remind me a little bit of where I grew up.  We're still having some sunny, blue sky days here on the Island, but we are also getting into our rainy season now.  Incidentally, rain also makes for some neat photos!  Check out what I've found in my local travels lately by clicking here!  The newest ones are towards the end of the gallery.

As my kids are growing, I'm of course being a normal mom and taking tonnes of photos to capture all the smiles, giggles, and special moments.  I've put more of these photos in my People Portfolio, which you can view here.  I'm planning on putting a bit more variety in this gallery as well with some upcoming photo shoots! Please contact me if you're local to Southern Vancouver Island and are interested in having some fun family/kids/couples photos done.  Autumn is upon us and the nice weather will be quickly disappearing as the rains descend for the next 6 months!  There are plenty of fabulous outdoor locations to capture your memories!  Packages and prices can be viewed on the right by scrolling down just a bit.

As always, stay tuned for updates, specials (Christmas is just around the corner...!) and additions to my ever-growing galleries.
