From these pictures you would never guess that Luke and Piper’s wedding day was rained out!
The downpour caused their original ceremony location to be changed last minute…which also included the need to find a new location for their formal pictures.
However, I couldn’t be more delighted with our “plan B” location and the fun we had.
I only have happy memories when I think of their wedding day! Luke and Piper, thanks for letting me be a part of your day!
So very VERY honoured and excited to feature one of the most beautiful people I know: my sister.
We both had Monday off because it was Family Day here in BC. It was sprinkling snow but not super cold out… so we took advantage of the day and did a little photo shoot.
(It was graciousness on her part because I wanted to play with my new camera.)
I’ve blogged about her off and on over my time of blogging so feel like I’d be repeating myself if I sat down and started writing too much. Maybe today, I’ll let pictures speak. My words wouldn’t do justice to who she is to me. My best “girlfriend” – you know…that one with which you can laugh hysterically, the one whose thoughts you can almost read, who tells you how it is, listens, gives advice….but the best part? She’s also my sister. 😀 If you know this gal in real life, you’re the one who’s blessed!
So there’s been this porcupine hanging around our place recently. Couldn’t resist grabbing my camera today when he came by again.
All in all it was a rather amusing experience. He almost looks like he could be fluffy, eh?
It was super cold out…and getting late in the day…
There wasn’t any sunlight out or much daylight left…but, we were running out of time because one of the sisters was moving away and it was the only chance our three schedules fit. So, we went for it!
It was worth all the cold, and the dark, and the mud, for the laughs and the fun and the pictures! Diane and Loreen were a hoot; but most sisters are. 😉 The inside jokes and how they can make each other laugh with a look or a word…sisters are just like that, and it’s always fun to experience it in real life. 🙂
But best of all, I was blessed to capture a moment, some memories… 🙂
Thanks for a great time Diane and Loreen! Love you girls! ❤
Somehow…since the last time I blogged; not only has Christmas pasted but also New Years, and all the fun, joy, love, celebrating and craziness and general chaos that surrounds them… it’s hard to believe we’ve passed the halfway mark through January! :-S
Anyways, just a little note to say that I’m back around (hopefully! 😉 ) and am super excited to be sharing some recent-ish photo sessions on here very soon!
So for today enjoy the adorable smile, the twinkling eyes, and sprays of freckles…I can’t help but smile when I see that face 😀
I had the absolute pleasure of doing some yearly pictures of these kids a couple weeks ago.
We got some really sweet evening light and the location was perfect! (And their Mom picked utterly adorable outfits!!)
A boy in a tree…perfect place for little boys to play.
I did their portraits last year and was amazed at how much each has changed and grown up…time sure flies!
All in all, we had a great evening and session! Can’t wait for next year’s portraits! 😉
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…

…so I grabbed the ones that were close by and snapped some head shots. It was great fun.

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.

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!
