Greg & Sara’s Chilliwack Wedding

Sara & Greg both got ready at the Charis Camp Chalet but didn't see each other until their first look later in the afternoon.  In fact, Greg didn't know that we took this photo of he and Sara on the two levels of the Chalet!  (Sneaky, aren't we? Good job, John!) But the first look?  Let's swoon!  Look at those grins, guys! "You know, that's what I especially love about being … [Read More...]

Engaged: Joanna and Peter

I'm pretty sure that the only thing more emotionally charged for me than photographing my little brother's wedding is photographing my little sister's engagement photos. Well, for now anyway: in a couple months, I will be able to speak to the bittersweet topsy turvy that will be walking my baby sister's wedding. But as if the very prospect of these photos wasn't exciting enough, the trauma of trying to get to Chattanooga was a nightmare I do … [Read More...]

Kernersville Family Photos

Johnnie and I are practically best friends now.  He may not realize it yet, of course, but it's true! I celebrated with his parents at our Kernersville maternity session, we giggled together during his newborn session, and now he's over a year old and now we're celebrating the start of another summer with Kernersville family photos. Randall led our mini caravan of diesel-powered cars winding down neighborhood roads so expertly I didn't have … [Read More...]

Bellingham in the Rain

To spend time in Bellingham, WA in the winter is to flirt with rain.   To combine an alleyway (my favorite!) with fabulous and quirky sweaters (Beau's favorites!) and a classy pipe (Beau's favorite!) with backlit raindrops (my favorite!), these photos are basically - well - AWESOME. (Said with all the humility possible, of course. :-P) Bellingham in the rain is stunning, even if it's a little complicated. We managed quite the operation: Beau's … [Read More...]

High Tea at O.Henry

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress." Frederick Douglass The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. Lamentations 3: 22 - 24 With every attempt at elegance, we sat in the peace of high tea at O.Henry Hotel and sipped from fine china.  To my left was the joy of our day, to my right was the inspiration of our day. The dainty Ella had no … [Read More...]

Silver Lake Provincial Park

I went camping.  Nay, I went camping for the first time. I mean, I slept in a tent in Uganda (but that was out of desperation: the house we were supposed to sleep in was locked from the inside by a very deep sleeper … Continue Reading

I went to Ontario

Guys!  Canadaland is SO MUCH BIGGER than this little tiny thumbprint  section I claim as my own.    Yeah, yeah, yeah.  No duh.  But for all my criss-cross-apple-sauce of the continent, I've only ever been in one … Continue Reading
