Dads 80th Birthday Party

80 is a big birthday and my lovely sister, Cathy, decided that for dad it couldn’t go without being recognised with a party.  She’s always the one to organise everything especially when it comes to family get togethers and we all love and thank her for it. Living in Canada with all my family in […]

Photos of 5 week old baby Douglas

Babies change so quickly, it’s always good to have some professional photographs taken when they are newborn.  This little boy was just 5 weeks old and both he and his parents were still getting used to each other.   Be prepared for a long shoot, though, babies don’t pose quite so easily as adults or even […]

Early winter family portrait session

Posted by in Families

This is a family who’s son I had taken photos of at just 11 days old.  Now, at age three they wanted to capture some more family photos at a local lake.  Ideally, they had wanted a sunny day but the weather didn’t cooperate.  As it turned out the sun was filtered through a layer […]

Big belly photos at dawn: getting the best light.

Posted by in Babies, Families

Getting to Rainbow Park at 7.30am was totally worth it to get this beautiful light as the sun rose.  Thanks to my 8 month pregnant client for listening to my advice!  It was a fun shoot and we captured quite a lot of variety.  Just a few weeks to go and then maybe we’ll see […]

More Rebagliatti Park Family Photos

Posted by in Families

This family hadn’t had any family portraits taken since the birth of their daughter three years ago.  We were a little nervous about the weather as it had been raining off and on all day.  In the end the shoot went off well but I found it challenging keeping up with a three-year old!  I […]

Another 50th Anniversary family portrait session

Posted by in Families

Well this was my second 50th anniversary shoot in a month!  The families couldn’t have been more lovely and fun to work with if they’d tried.  The grandparents had four children of their own and each of them had spouses and children:  so we took advantage not only to take the full family group portrait […]

50th Wedding Anniversary Family Photos

This was my client’s parents 50th wedding anniversary.  They wanted some special photos to remember the occasion so I suggested Rebagliatti Park in Whistler.  With views of the creek, mountains and trees there is lots of variety for a 1 hour shoot.  The family was lovely and I was super-impressed with the anniversary couple:  after […]

Senior high school portraits

It’s an American tradition to get portraits taken for your senior year at high school.  My client loves the outdoors, and loves Whistler so it made sense for him to have his portraits taken here.  We accomplished quite a lot in the 30-40 minute photo session. My favourite is the one where he’s not smiling […]
