Travel advisory and hiatus

Hello! Please note the following: I will be travelling out of the country from November 1 to 25 from Lisbon, Portugal to Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

I will not be available for bookings or responding to email during that period of time due to spotty internet access and - hello... vacation!  If you wish to follow our family adventure, please follow my personal Facebook page.  Once back in Vancouver I will be replying to all outstanding emails in the order in which they were received, please forgive me if there is a delay in communication.  For urgent matters, please call me directly at 778.231.2825

Also, upon my return, my family and I will be transitioning from house, to temporary basement suite in mid-December as we continue moving forward on plans to build a new home in 2015. We will be focusing on moving, purging, storing and prepping our current home for demolition! With all the upheaval coming through the month of December, plus the holiday season, I will not be taking/working on any studio or location photography bookings until 2015. HOWEVER, if you wish to purchase gift certificates for future lifestyle sessions, headshot and fashion portrait sessions, please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss your needs. Please see my Giving the Gift of Memories for more information.

I will be resuming a more regular schedule and will re-open for bookings in early 2015 once 'life' has settled down.

Thank you for your patience and continued support, I truly appreciate it.

Peace out...

 

 

Sneak Peek: DORKALICIOUS

Fun afternoon today with a gorgeous new face from Charles Stuart International named Renata, stylist Taylor Ramsay and model beautiful MUA/H Victoria Ferguson. This sneak peek from our editorial DORKALICIOUS was inspired by young, geek-chic fashionistas Tavi Gevinson and Susie Bubble. Its a look at fashion that is as awkward and nerdy as it is fabulous! The fact that our beautiful model has just gotten braces was a happy bonus and worked perfectly with our geek-chic vibe LOL :)

More from this colourful, awkward, young style editorial coming soon!

the dark mysterious place known as compositing...

Playin' with the 'shop and exercising my compositing chops for a few minutes this evening... just goes to show you that the right studio shot combined with the right background can yield interesting and mysterious results.
