Gabrio + Jenny | Caufeild Park

Gabrio and Jenny rolled up in the car with Jenny’s dress piled into her lap and a huge mirror propped up in the trunk. They were ready to take on Caufeild Park and we immediately ran out to the rocks. After rescheduling because of rain, the weather was more perfect than any of us could have asked for (other than some signature Vancouver August smoke) and jumped right into it. Though Gabrio and Jenny had never been photographed before, they were so natural and lovely in front of the camera. I love how the danced together in the water and shared stories of how they met.

Madina Lolaeva: Summer

You never quite know what Madina will pull out of her rolling suitcase, and this summer proved no different. Mixing solids, prints, crops, dresses, and skirts, Madina showed me what style can really do with the ever changing seasons of Vancouver. From street wear to beach days, she’s ready to go with any outfit that you can think of! Here are a few of my favourite snaps from this summer working with Madina!

Amanda + Emily | Yoga at Jericho

There are days when everything lines up perfectly. The sun is at the perfect height, the greens are the creamy hues that dreams are made of, the temperature feel just right, and your subjects are as bright and airy as the images you wish to create. This is what transpired on the day I got to photography Amanda and Emily.

We met up at Jericho beach on the perfect day to capture both of them doing what they love to do - yoga! Despite my lack of knowledge of the names of the poses, they rocked it out and I was left with a gorgeous set of a couple of absolute stunnas! Check out the set below - it’s truly one of my faves of the summer!

Dear Squamish | Bouldering in Squamish

Dear Squamish,

I’ve heard a lot about you, more than I every thought I would. Dang, you are beautiful. I’ve always had a thing for greenery, but your greens glisten against the stark greys and feel like they go on forever until they touch the sky. For the longest time, you were just a book slammed into a lime green backpack and videos randomly sent to my inbox, but I’m glad we finally met.

We’re really different, you and I. You are adventurous and grand, I am a natural homebody. You represent a kind of fun that I see no fun in, but we got along better than I expected. Maybe it was the great conversation and caffeine leading up to meeting you, or the warm spirits that welcomed me there, or, I hate to be vain, but it might have been your beauty. I knew I’d love capturing you, but it was more awe inspiring that I expected.

Thank you for being a space for every emotion under the sun. For graciously giving us a playground amongst the trees for people to challenge themselves, struggle, and conquer you. I am grateful for the new experiences and the new friendships I’ve made. Meeting you helps me understand my friends so much more.

Until next time,

Many thanks to this crew of climbers who embraced me so whole heartedly and let me tag along on their adventures.

Richards Family

Families shoots are often hectic! 
They're sandwiched in between a million other commitments and kids get frustrated and over the whole experience before you know it. The Richards Family were incredible in that they designed their family shoot around the kids! We ventured off to Lynn Canyon early in the morning to run off steam and explore the creek and trails. It was a perfect way to mix posed shots with in the moment climbing and exploring! Check out the awesome result!
