So so very excited to share a few moments of Rita and Dietrich’s wedding on my blog today!
These two are so in love, photographing them wasn’t really work but a privilege.
You can just see so plainly how much they simply adore each other.
Truly, love is one of the most photogenic aspects of life.
What I saw that day wasn’t just “two people in love” but a man and woman unified in their love for Christ as well as their love for each other. Everything about their day was centred around Christ and His love.
Rita and Dietrich, thank you for the honour of being part of your wedding day!
Those days when you come across a picture.
A picture of people. Of good friends.
It brings back memories.
Maybe you’re even in the picture.
It makes you miss the people who are in it because they’re far away.
You know it’s going to be a
long while before you see them again.
That’s when you smile…and are thankful for such awesome people you’re able to call friend and for all the great memories and for all the time you have been given in the past.
So here’s to good times and good friends…the ones who are close and the ones who are far away!
Sometimes there’s perfect light when you’re not waiting or looking for it – suddenly it’s just there. This happened a few weeks ago…but the best part? Some of my lovely friends happened to be with me…
“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.” ~Audrey Hepburn
…so I grabbed the ones that were close by and snapped some head shots. It was great fun.
“I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls.” ~Audrey Hepburn
And I was reminded again of the gift of friends and friendship. Of laughter. Of moments…because perfect light doesn’t last, it’s gone soon after it appears, but true friendship will last as well as the memories we share together.
Thanks for the moments and the new memories, girls!
Wildflowers and hills that keep going on and on. Isn’t it lovely?
This is taken at Silver Star Ski Resort just out of Vernon, B.C. Canada. In the winter this is a ski hill. 🙂 I’d never been up there in the summer and was awed by the beauty…yup, I’m pretty blessed to live here in Canada.
I just love nature and forests and pathways. The End.
It’s pictures like this make me want to go back to England. 😉
Could you imagine this as part of a Fairyland? 😉
I like it because it’s green. And peaceful. And quiet. And wet.
Nature never ceases to amaze me and bring a sense of awe upon my soul.

This is one of the aerial photos I took during a flight I was able to go on last week. I’ll feature that whole experience in another post (hopefully soonish!) but I couldn’t wait to share at least one already! 🙂
I can’t describe how amazing it was to see the Okanagan Valley from the sky! It really gave a whole new perspective on how beautiful this place is! …and I get to call it home!
Last week through pictures.
July 15, glanced down at my gas gage to see that someone (thanks Dad! ❤ ) had filled my tank – kind of a fantastic way to start the week! 🙂
July 17 – Boo paid me with hugs and kisses to share the last piece of mom’s homemade banana bread at supper.
Also one of those “liquid sunshine” evenings when its sunny and rainy at the same time. (Can you see the rain drops? 😉 )
July 18 – fresh Okanagan apricots
July 19 – another view of Okanagan Lake
July 20 – I was a second photographer at a wedding up on Silver Star, a local ski hill. (There are mountain bike trails in the summer) Part of the day included riding the chair lift – which was kind of epic.
July 21 – Our “traditional” Sunday morning breakfast – biscuits.
Well, there you have it!
Hope you’re enjoying your summer too!
Here’s the second week of July as seen through my various electronics.
I took Rasco to assist me in a family photo session (look for that feature post on my blog soon!) and we celebrated with starbucks afterwards.
The busy day I took a moment to look up and saw the sun rays flowing off of the clouds.
A honey bee enjoying some of my favourite blossoms – lavender.
What I like to call a “drive by shooting”. Snapped this from the car on the way home. A lovely sunset over Kal lake.
We had VBS all last week at our church, made for a busy week – but it’s a fun kind of busy. With some of the kids who came.
The first day I didn’t take a picture. A hard day, attended the funeral of a family friend.
A piece of my Grandma’s legendary pumpkin dessert. If you’ve ever had the honour of eating a piece, you’ll know why it’s worth of a picture. If you haven’t had the honour – know you’re missing out – big time!
Beach. Water. Sunset. I love that I’m blessed live here.
We celebrated Lulu’s first birthday at at park.
It was also the afternoon I “officially” tried an energy drink. It’s worth a picture – yes. (I shared it with my best friend. It was fun.)
And there we go. 🙂 Excited to see what this week will bring. I’m enjoying the challenge – because it’s teaching me to stop and enjoy a moment. To stop and see a moment.
Earlier this week, I took one of my sisters with me to assist for a photo session. We were there a little early to scout out some locations for the photo session…she happily complied when I asked to to model for me. These are a couple of my favourite snapshots.
(Thought the epic sunflare was kind of funky 😉 )
Ah, the gloriousness of ‘early’ morning light.
