The Chief!

It only took me a little over 3 YEARS to finally hike the chief; and it was worth the wait! I will admit that I was huffing and puffing a little throughout the journey to the summit, but who wasn’t?! Right?! The view from the top (Peak 1) is simply breathtaking; and was the perfect spot to enjoy our lunch before heading back down! Nonetheless, below are a few pics from today’s adventure!

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

Decided to go on a little road-trip adventure today, and ended up at the Abbotsford Tulip Festival! The sun was shining (and I have the burn to prove it), and the crowds were out in full-force to enjoy one final day of the beautiful tulips! Below are my favourite shots from the day – ENJOY!

Granville Street Bridge Views

Ended up on a little stroll along the Granville Street Bridge last night and had to stop at a few spots to capture (what I think) are some funky photos! I’ve been trying to get a picture of the painted silos for a while but could never find an angle that I liked; but I like how this angle allows you to see the city in the background. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to the weather warming up a little more so I can get out to take more night shots (well, so I can take more and not be cold).

Patty and Selma Visit Vancouver

Okay, so obviously Patty and Selma from “The Simpsons” didn’t visit Vancouver, but the next “best” thing did; the Simpson Sisters!! While they aren’t twins, they certainly look like it! And given that they were both recovering from a nasty cold and both had a deep raspy voice I decided to call them Patty and Selma for the weekend! I also decided to make them my models so I could practice some portrait photography and play around with my camera settings. If you have any feedback please share it with me; it’s the only way to learn!

Oh, and as always, my regular model joined in on our adventures too! 😉

February Freddy Beach

Back in NB for another visit, which isn’t the ideal time to be in the maritimes, but am making the most of my visit (as always). Spent Saturday afternoon at the Clay Cafe creating some art for friends and “family,” and the evening capturing a few shots of St. Thomas University. With the evening being capped off with a visit from the worlds cutest puppy!

Baby Super Model!

Taking photos is so much more fun when your model is the cutest little 11-month old imaginable; especially when she knows how to smile for the camera! Baby Hayden was a little shy of her “Uncle Mikey” when I first arrived on Friday, but after a weekend of Xbox games, lounging on the couch, and Super Bowl excitement, it was time to get the camera out! And as you can tell, this 11-month old isn’t afraid of the camera!

Back In The Habit

It’s been wayyyy too long since I last captured some cityscape pictures, so it felt great when I managed to get back into the habit last night! It was so mild outside and the skies were the clearest they had been in a while, so I had no excuses! I also realized just how therapeutic photography can be for me. My work life has been absolutely insane lately, and I can’t seem to keep up with it all, but when I get behind my camera and find the perfectly framed shot I somehow forget about the endless to-do lists and countless emails. Speaking of which, I should probably get back to answering a few! Hope you enjoy!

Meet Nigel, Joe, and Tristan!

We are in the midst of getting our summer camp guide put together at work and discovered that we needed some shots of a few coaching staff to include in the publication. Given how little time we had I quickly volunteered to meet with the coaches to take some shots. Nigel is our soccer camps coordinator and this will be his second year in the role. I’m very excited to be working with him again! Joe and Tristan are the coaches for our strength and conditioning teams here at UBC, and are running brand new camps for summer 2016. Nonetheless, here are a few pics from my quick photoshoot with Nigel, Joe, and Tristan!

Free Photoshoot

Hey Vancouver! As I am slowly getting things up and running with my website I am looking for friends, family, or acquaintances to do a photoshoot with. This will merely give me the opportunity to fine-tune my skills a little further before I start booking official appointments. If you are interested send me an email and we can hopefully find a time that works (usually on weekends)!
