Just a quick flashback. We couldn't resist posting this image from the summer. It's pure magic. It's awesome to see the connection between mom and her girls here. I've had the pleasure of photographing these girls since they were babies. It's pretty special to watch them grow up.

It's amazing how some images speak more in brown tone rather than color. This is one of those portraits. I love the warmth that the brown tone creates.

Dodging the showers yesterday morning, we took to the streets downtown to shoot this really great couples portrait. There's some awesome images here.
Some of these cool effects we'll be using in our new storybook albums just in from Australia. We're pretty excited about these new abums, they're totally awesome.

We had a lot of fun with Amy's session at the outdoor volley ball court. The rich fall colors look amazing with her team colors. What a terrific grad portrait panel!

The Oyster River is a great location for Fall Portrait colors. Don't these images just speak for themselves? Imagine how treasured these portraits will be 10 years down the road? How treasured they are now?

One of our most popular beach locations for portraits is Kye Bay in Comox. There is so much variety from the rich dark tones of the very unique trees to the lively greens of the grass.
Another great family grouping. Their portrait turned out fantastic. I love their storyboard collection. I just think this is so great of the kids!

Back to Blogging!

We've been so overwhelmed with shooting so many portraits that we've fallen a bit behind on the blogging. Well, we're back with some of our latest work and we've got some amaziing images here.

Check this out! Apparently this is the family's ice cream's their 88 Delta...perfect for cruising in the summer and going for ice cream. I think that is very cool. And this portrait...spectacular! What a view of Kye Bay. This whole portrait is just fantastic!

This image is absolutely stunning! It's the kind of portrait you could look at all day. The mood that it creates is almost surreal. Gorgeous!
