I can’t believe how fast time is flying! I opened my South Surrey, BC studio at the beginning of 2015 and now I’m planning my new studio in a suburb of Seattle, Washington. It’s hard to leave something so wonderful behind, but I’m really excited about…

I’m so excited about the new dresses I just added to my studio collection. Like a kid in a candy store!!!! They’re just so glamorous, and who doesn’t love glamour? (Seriously? Not everyone obsesses about glamour like I do?! I’m pretty sure my family is planning…

Every week, women arrive at my studio ready to learn about my photography and to see everything I offer. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy spending an hour or so getting to know them and hearing their stories about love, grief, celebration, heartache and…

I’m a true believer in a woman’s beauty, whether she just crawled out of bed with yesterday’s mascara smudged across her cheek and dried drool on her mouth (guilty), or she’s all polished and pretty for a dinner date. Most days I can be found wearing my…
