BC Children’s Hospital is close to my heart and my charity of choice. I often photograph events hosted by BCCHF and was recently asked by the Foundation to photograph a family who had benefited from its services. Jireh was only 7 months old went he had plastic surgery to remove a tumour on his face that was threatening blindness. Today, at 4 years old, Jireh’s tumour is gone and the surgery is undetectable. I had the joy of photographing Jireh and his twin brother playing on the playground and managed to pose these two active pre-schoolers for a few moments on my little red wagon. Shown are excerpts of BCCHF’s spring edition of their Speaking of Children magazine (the image on page 8 and the inset image on page 9 are not mine). I wish many continued blessings for you and your wonderful family, Jireh!
On a beautiful Autumn evening, we met Alysha and Stryder on top of Burnaby Mountain outside of Horizon’s Restaurant for their Engagement Session. This location has sentimental value for Alysha and Stryder, with its rose gardens, Japanese carved poles and beautiful mountain views, it was the perfect setting. The forecast was rain but the weather was in our favour and we had a lovely time preserving this wonderful time in their lives. I can’t wait to photograph their July wedding! Special thanks to Shawn for assisting.
I really enjoy delving into a special project, whether it’s for a client or it’s a personal project. Here is a seasonal project that my boys and I enjoyed working on with our own pets. The image with the gerbils was chosen by Global News‘ Kristi Gordon for yesterday’s Weather Window. It took a little coaxing to get the gerbils to appear once they were inside the pumpkin as they were surrounded by a large food source!

It was a pleasure to meet this lovely family this week and to photograph them at this stage of their lives. We met at the beautiful Crescent Beach area to take photographs at a park and at the beach where they have spent much family time together over the years. The evening was timed perfectly as we enjoyed the sunset and took advantage of the golden light.
This is a classic tale of best friends getting married. Tim and Allison met in middle school and were friends all through high school. They were in the music program together and shared the same friends’ group. After graduation, they started dating and Tim went away to university while Allison attended university at home. Promising to wait for each other, four years of Skype and FaceTime later, their patience was rewarded! A beautiful, heart-warming ceremony at Surrey Pentecostal Assembly was followed by a lovely reception at Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club. Best wishes, Tim and Allison for a lifetime of happiness!
