Hello and welcome to my blog!!! Life is about telling stories and I want to tell yours. I have been blessed to work with so many couples and families, and this is the place I give you a glimpse of what a session with me is like. I want to get to know you and share my passion and love for photography, capturing the moments that make your relationships unique. Check back often to see my latest updates on weddings, photography tips, advice and adventures!!!

Meet Greta, she’s a beautiful little girl who needs a lot of support.  In December 2014 she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, starting a long and hard journey of fighting against cancer.  I saw her story on Facebook and it touched my heart.   I feel overwhelmed with the need to help in any way I can, and I know many of you feel the same way….  So here’s a way to support Greta in her fight to beat cancer and get a new treatment from Texas that she needs.  


I’m offering mini sessions on Saturday April 23rd 2016 for a minimum contribution of $150 and 100% of the proceeds will go to help her.  If you feel the want or need to give more please do.   For your contribution, you will get 10 digital images, on an online gallery to print and share with friends and family. Each session will be about 20-30 minutes.  If this is something you feel you can do please help me support this amazing little girl.  

Even if you aren’t able to do photos, please help by sharing this and check out her little video below… ever little bit helps!

Hi everyone!!!

This have been on my heart for a while, not knowing if it was something I felt I had to do but knowing God played a vital role in having this all come together.  So many things happen in the city we live in, so many sad and terrible things that it’s easy to turn a blind eye to.  I will admit that I am gulity of being one of these people, closing my eyes and hoping the hurt and the bad things would disappear…. I feel I have been called to reach out and help, help people in need and I do believe that every small hand can make a difference.  The people that have been on my heart are homeless youth, children who are living on our streets, and are hungry for food and need shelter…. this is happeneing in our own backyard.  I was that blind eye and now I see…  by the grace of God, He has shown me that through my small business of photography I can help.  So here’s how you can be a support….

On April 13th, 2013 I will be doing a marathon of photo sessions, for a minimum donation of $250 you will get 15 images on a disc and 100% of the money raised will go to the Cyrus Centre to support these youth. Cyrus Centre is a drop in centre, right here in Abbotsford, for at risk youth committed to every young person having a place to turn to whenever they are in need.
