I've recently found my calling, combining several of my passions: observing, asking questions, learning new things, meeting people and discovering their quirks and most of all seeing the beauty in every day instances.

And I do that through both my writing as well as the family photography portion of my business, which is based out of the Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island.

It has evolved over years of coffee-drinking, studying journalism and English literature and working as a reporter. I graduated from Vancouver Island University with a Bachelor of Arts, a major in Creative Writing/Journalism and minor in English.

All along the way, I've kept my Canon cameras close. I captured photos to run with feature articles. I've documented my life raising my children, Jack and Audrey.

As a writer/editor/blogger/photographer I offer clients a number of services (please click on the INFO page for more on writing and photography as well as my resume). 

Also look through my PORTFOLIO pages for samples of my photography. 

As a blogger and coffee addict, I hope I can entertain you with my family's adventures and provide knowledge from my experiences of being a mom (see COFFEE MOM). I also write a second blog on various photography topics as well as 'Feature' favourite sessions (see that blog as well under, ya you guessed it, FEAUTRED).

Nice to meet you. 

The photos of me and my children were taken by the lovely and very talented photographer Amee Nijjar.
