I believe that kindness, joy and, generosity are qualities that are worth embodying everyday, at both work and play.
I love the outdoors which is why I now live on acreage across from the sea and with hiking trails out my back door.
I live my life from a deep connection to Divine love. This informs all that I do with a compassion and grace.
I bring years of photography experience, my love of visual artistry, and my generous, connected, playful yet professional way of being to our time together.
This helps create a relaxed and flowing space where you get to be authentically you - and begin to access a natural place within yourself. When this happens, your true essence shines forth, making for a most enjoyable photography session and gorgeous legacy images.

More beautiful reasons to invite me to celebrate your love:
I am an award winning artist
My photography and watercolour paintings have been recognized and honoured in university galleries, in group and solo shows, and in fine art competitions. I bring this artistry and knowledge to each photo I compose so your innate beauty as a bride will be seen and captured - every time!
I am trained.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree with a major in Fine Arts from the University of BC as well as diploma courses in Lightroom and Photoshop. I continue to hone my craft so I bring you the highest quality Digital photography.
I am experienced.
With over 30 years as a fine artist and photographer, I continue to feel the thrill of creating beautiful images from my work as a nature and wedding photographer, originally shooting film and now digital.
I love what I do.
My passion is hiking and being in the wild outdoors with its breathtaking beauty. Nature, with its kaleidoscope of natural light and moods, inspires me, and awakens my passion as an artist. It is a joy and a passion to capture on camera the beauty of a bride in the beauty of the natural outdoors!
I have personality.
As a former teacher librarian, I know how to flex and relate to a myriad of different personalities and needs. I am professional and organized, AND I have a warm, personable nature that creates an authentic connection. Even the most camera shy clients relax when in my presence and love their photo session.
I deliver on my promise.
I ensure that your experience is a beautiful one and that the final results are top quality. A favourite testimonial from a branding shoot was, “Oh my, I am really beautiful.” And from the mom of a bride (who didn’t like to have her photo taken) when she saw the photos of her daughter’s wedding, “You are really talented!”
I am a West Coast photographer. This includes not only Pender Island and Saltspring Island in the southern Gulf Islands, but also the Pacific Rim National Park near Tofino, and the mountain trails around Whistler. They are among my favourite locations to photograph weddings, as they are three of my favourite locations to experience the beauty of nature and the wild outdoors!
