It has been several years now, that I have been specializing in the world of food, restaurants, restaurateurs, and their spaces. I have a thing for details. Unique bits. Real food. And the people who put all of those things together in one place.

As an experimental home cook myself, with lots of amaaaazing home cook friends (and professional ones, too), I am surrounded. And that is my happy place. I get caught up in the preparation of a salad, and I let it go slightly wilty just because I’ve taken the time to photograph it in the perfect window light. I will spot a selection of liquor bottles on the counter, mid-cocktail-make and love the way the Aperol shines onto the fresh lemons. I will see a friend in a giant ocean-side window, simply showing me the new drapes, and have to stare for awhile. I’m out of control!

I know – my friends and family may have started out annoyed. But, I hope they are happy with being forever stamped on the Internet, on my blog and my Instagram. (and if they’re not, it’s too late!)

It has taken me years to learn to say no. To accept only assignments that are desirable, and that are a fit for me. But it’s the right thing. I am a food and lifestyle photographer. Come and say hello to my new website.

I think this was my 10th year at this favourite annual event. The food this year was outstanding. The wine? Same. And this year, we switched up our own venue, so our transport, instead of walking, became a fleet of Electras! Beach biking, delicious cocktails, and the sweetest little Island town.

I am not normally one to write much on my blog posts, nor am I one to often post my photo sessions of families (except my own), as they are not my ‘specialty’. I am a commercial food photographer first and foremost, but sometimes, I make exceptions. This family is one I make an exception for.

I met Chris when I started mentoring her in photography. I watched her work hard, set realistic goals, and begin her own business. She has since flourished in the field of newborn photography, something she is comfortable and familiar with, having had rocked three babies of her own.

Over the past couple of years, I  have watched her littles grow, have gotten to know her better, and have become rather fond of her and her sweet family.

Family photos with little kids is nothing if not…fast. Kids wear down, become shy, tired, hungry and fully DONE in no time.  And so, we spent less than an hour, on a beautiful night, with flowers and grass and kids. And here’s what we captured:

Rain, sun, trees, oysters (so many oysters). Campfires, card games, bikes, food. My regular instalments of Quadra Island adventures are quickly becoming some of my favourite stories. This time, I packed as much as possible into 1.75 days. And it was worth every second of travel.

Anyone who knows me, or who follows my blog, knows that a gaggle of girlfriends gets together to go to Tofino every year, where I shoot the Tofino Food and Wine Fest, and take a good solid crack at fitting in all the imbibing, outrageous shenanigans and ridiculous laughs that I could possibly fit into 3 days. Beach time, good food, and the never-ending aforementioned laughs are all showcased below. And seeing as we all know that old adage that refers to photos and a thousand words, I will say no more, and allow the pictures to do the talking…
