2015, you were completely amazing.
2015 marked a huge time for me on a personal level… in addition to moving back to my hometown of Victoria this past summer, we also welcomed our sweet little man almost exactly a year ago. That beautiful experience, as well as every day that has passed with him since then, continues to colour the way I see the world. The simplest way I can explain this new motherhood outlook is that there’s more love now… it seeps into tiny daily interactions; it connects and unites. It’s empathy & understanding.
Time has also taken on a different feel… moments are simultaneously fleeting and yet carry so much weight. I am even more grateful for the ability to preserve these moments in photographs, to freeze them and hold them close. I’ve always wanted to do that for my clients, to show them how beautiful their own fleeting moments are and help to hold on to them. I feel I accomplished this in 2015 and I am so happy to have had that chance.
So thank you. Thank you for getting in front of my camera and allowing me to preserve your moments. Be they pivotal life moments- like your wedding, a pregnancy, a new baby; or quieter moments- a morning with your kids at the park, a swim with your love in the ocean; they are all beautiful and precious. It has been my pleasure to capture them for you.
Below is a little collection of highlights from the year… some have appeared here before, some have not. The process of going through a year’s worth of work is slow and sweet… I love revisiting these faces and feelings. I hope you will too. xo
