Wonderful Women in Southern Spain

March 25, 2008

I managed to flit off to Spain for a week to spend with my mother, my childhood Scottish friend and her mother. It was a wonderful weekend of female bonding and laughter with long-lost friends. It had been 16 years since all four of us were in the same place….we’ll have to do this more often. ūüôā Here are a few snap shots from me playing around with my trusty old Nikon FM2:

MJ, Dave, & little Anna

March 16, 2008

I have photographed MJ many times over the years and she is a beautiful & strong woman¬†(we¬†worked together¬†in fundraising calendars for the Women’s Capilano Rugby & Football¬†Club).¬†¬†Having the opportunity to photograph¬†MJ & her husband, Dave, during her pregnancy and then with their infant daughter¬†was just magic.¬†Witnessing the love in this new family just makes me emotional…..how many times have I cried during these blog entries?!! Capturing the¬†little moments of¬†life is such an amazing thing.¬†I have definitely found my calling.

Louise & David

March 5, 2008

Louise and David are such a adorable, sweet couple…it’s an absolute pleasure being around them. I had such a good time photographing them for their engagement, and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding this September! They were a wee bit shy at first, but it didn’t take long to warm up and get right into the photo shoot. The are just beautiful to watch. Kits Beach (where Louise & David have spent a lot of time together) provided a stunning background with lots of variety and was wonderfully quiet on this soft spring morning.
