sunset | nature photography, powell river, bc

Okay. I'm not usually into posting scenic pictures - I enjoy verbal interaction with my subjects! - but I couldn't NOT post this shot, taken last week during a weird, late afternoon rainstorm. It was a summer preview, really... lavender sky, super-calm water, and this gorgeous yellow light...

PS. I never made it to the end. Next time!

gone dotty. | wedding invitations, powell river, bc

Meet Elise, the bride-to-be. I first met her a couple years ago when I was shooting her for a local Credit Union campaign. I can only describe her personality as... effervescent. Absolutely bubbly (and infectious). When she came to me for her invites, I was so excited! Finally! Someone who is as obsessed with paperie as I am. Heck, she trumps me on that!

Her palette was fresh and fun (just like her!) - strawberry, chartreuse, turquoise and pale pink. And I spun her love of Love and polka dots into this double set of invitations because her wedding is halfway across the country, and a second reception will follow here on the Sunshine Coast at the end of the summer!

cat scan benefit | local events, powell river, bc

If you haven't already - you should pick up tickets to attend Brooks' Cat Scan Benefit. This evening is to raise money for the local charity, and features the student talent from the local high school. The live and silent auctions feature some amazing items up for bid, and the food is set to be nothing short of fabulous!

the fab four & family | family portraits, powell river, bc

Boo hoo. My Spring Break is over - and back to reality I go. However, I'm reliving the loverly sunny weather with editing this session! Okay, this family is fun. And gorgeous. (Heeeellllo! Look at those eyes!) So, here's some of my faves from last Wednesday at Eagle River.

That's right. Four girls. Henceforth shall be the fab four...

Love me some sun flare! Bring it in tight...

Okay... had to post a model shot. Girls are workin' it!

Many, many thanks to the Griffiths family for letting me spend an hour with them. I think that you are the most photogenic group I've ever shot... and you ROCKED! Thank you, THANK YOU!

Now... heading back to reality...

preview! | family photography, powell river, bc

Just a sneak from Wednesday's session with the most fab family. I can't wait to share the rest. Until then...

five on friday | tgif, mates!

Okay peeps, here we go again! My good friend, Bryan, visited this week and we inevitably get to a point in the evening where we start sharing our fave music finds and start booty-shaking (much to Brandon's dismay!). So, this week is all about music.

1. Do you have a theme song?
2. What music do you play when you're angry? Sad? Mellow?
3. What was the last song you listened to?
4. What was the last song or album you purchased?
5. Do you sing along to songs when you're alone?

Ciao for now!

fab floral | custom invitations, powell river, bc

I'm so excited to host my soon-to-be sister-in-law's shower in a couple weeks! Brandon will tell you... I'm nuts over paper. Crazy, in fact. The shower invitation, designed to match Andrea's gorgeous wedding invites are just the jumping off point for her shower... I'll be sure to post all the paper-yumminess when it's all put together!

I couldn't resist shooting the invites in the cherry blossoms outside. Is Spring here, finally?

Speaking of bridal showers, what are some of your fave activities? Foods? Drinks? I could use all the help you can give...

five on friday | for the sake of blogging

Okay, for the sake of keeping this blog active... I'm starting Five on Friday. I'm asking - you're answering. But, maybe I'll answer, too...

1. Name one thing you do everyday.
2. Name two things you wish you could learn.
3. Name three things that remind you of your childhood.
4. Name four things you love to eat (or drink, ha ha) but rarely do.
5. Name five things that make you feel good.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
