Stop using that camera as a point & shoot!!!
If you have a DSLR and it's driving you crazy this workshop is for you!
You're carrying around a heavy camera because you want to take great photos with it, right? Are you frustrated by not getting the results you want? You want to learn how to shoot in manual but you don't know where to start?
START HERE! I'll make it easier to understand than your camera manual, I promise!
You'll get one-on-one help, tips for shooting like a pro, and the confidence to take that camera off the automatic setting and start using it's full potential.

Space is limited so get in touch to reserve your spot. An optional photo wander will take place after the class to practice some skills!
This class is also beneficial to those who have a compact camera with manual capabilities (many Canon Powershot models etc)

Brendan is the face behind BMG Automotive... a regular at any of the networking events I attend, and all-around good guy.
While we were shooting these, I asked if he was having fun, and got an enthusiastic "Yes!" followed by "It would be weird, and not fun, if you were a guy... but this is cool!" hahaha... no wonder that I tend to work with a lot of men for headshots??
If you're in need of a new image, for social networking, your website, or just for FUN (like this shoot!) then drop me a line. It's quick, painless and I promise to make you laugh a little, because everyone looks their best when they're laughing :)

Happy New Year 2011... Team Andrew Event
This past NYE is one I'll never forget...
Last year, one of my best friends and her family began a journey that nobody wants to take, her brother Andrew was diagnosed with Large Cell Angioplastic Lymphoma, a particularly aggressive cancer.

After rounds of chemotherapy and naturopathic medicine to help the effectiveness of the chemo, it was determined that Andrew would require a stem cell transplant to save his life. None of his three siblings were a match, and doctors began to look elsewhere for a donor, eventually finding one through If you aren't already registered, I urge you to take just a few minutes to educate yourself about this registry. Because of one selfless donor, Andrew received the stem cells he needed just a few days after this event.

Although he was unable to attend, he was able to be there through the awesomeness that is Skype... watching the event and talking with friends from his room at VGH where he was admitted on the morning on Dec 31st in preparation for his transplant.

To help his family with the mounting costs, we gathered to ring in the new year, to shout 'Cheers!' to Andrew on the big screen, to make sure that 2011 is the year that Andrew kicks cancer's butt.

, myself and Katy (Andrew's sister)

Buzz Collins, a comedic hypnotist performed. If you ever have a chance to see him perform in your city, GO! Hilarious!!!

Jen, new website head shots
Pretty cool to be asked do do head shots of a fellow photographer. This is the lovely Jen of jmb photography, and she's so cute I could just put her in my pocket. Really, I almost can! She might be little but she's huge in talent and awesomeness.
This a just a small example of how Jen rocked it in FRONT of the camera for a change. I had so many favourites it was hard to pick just a few...

A look back at 2010!
In no particular order whatsoever... I generally tried to use photos that aren't already posted here on the blog. I enjoyed choosing the photos, as I do every year for the recap. It always brings a smile to my face as I remember the good stuff that comes along with any wedding day.
Happy New Year, may 2011 bring you all that you dream of.

Cindy & Brent... the awesome couple that actually jumped in the ocean at the end of their engagement session. In March. Yep.

No, I didn't get to shoot the actual wedding in Hawaii. But an evening of dancing and fun at the Dockside Bar & Grille on Granville Island makes up for it. Almost.

Abbey & Alex... I'm so glad we became friends.
I've known Abbey since grade 7 or so... she moved to BC to join Alex who was here for work. Shortly after their engagement, Alex's work took them back to Ontario. I miss coffee dates and lunches with Abbey but I get to shoot their wedding in October 2011, at a really cool venue, Copetown Woods.

This moment is always a treat when Jayna is doing your makeup. She doesn't really let you see until it's all done! My brides are always blown away at how gorgeous they look, and that's why I always recommend Jayna. The best part? She's just as happy as they are when they see the makeup!

Every time I see photos on facebook of Jenn & Derek's outings, there's often wine involved! It only seemed right to include it in their engagement shoot as well! (I always know who to ask or a good red recommendation!)

Best friends...

Erin and Weller danced to Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" and their sultry, sexy and playful dance was an inspiration to one of the song choices for my new website

Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow... like when you find yourself shooting in a potato field!

There's so much funny going on here I don't even know where to begin.

Leah and Jeff, kept me laughing along with them all day!

The day I learned what an 'abacus' is... (don't ask!)

Sometimes the flash of a guest produces this happy mistake, love the light behind everyone in this shot!

A wedding that takes place on the hobby farm the bride grew up on produces all sorts of cool photo locations, like the old play fort!

Margo & Ryan danced to their favourite Pearl Jam song... and we placed a lyric into their album design... "But now here you are, and here I am..." can you guess it?

There's something unforgettable about a great trio of sisters...

I love the story of how this couple met... Paul asked Aslida her opinion on shoes at the mall. I guess they were nice... and they were married in Aslida's hometown of Hermosillo, Mexico in December.

Proud dad moment at Nicki & Travis's wedding in Whistler... if you haven't enjoyed dinner at the Rim Rock Cafe you should... best wedding meal ever!

Noemi and Russ... classic beauty through & through

Sarah and Brian, who rocked a shoot in gritty Gastown with some stylin' hats (I love hats!!)

Casey, the bride who crinkled her nose in happiness all day long, who never hesitated to hug every dog she met on her wedding day (there were 2!) - and who I'm happy to now call my friend!

Ewa & Chris... gave me the wonderful opportunity to shoot a wedding along the shores of Lake Huron, my 2nd home. Their wedding took place a whopping 5 minutes from my parent's home, on the lake I spent my entire childhood swimming in. This photo was taken while enjoying one of the area's world famous sunsets over the lake.

This seagull was hanging out on the ledge of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, tapping (not so politely!) on the window, there was food visible and he wanted in!

1, 2, 3, funny faces!!
