Yellow & Blue

Up the hill from Lac Pellitier.

I love the simplicity of the landscape... big blue sky and big yellow field of wheat. ahhhh...

More from The Big Day

There's this fabulous heritage village at the Exhibition Grounds in Swift Current... Doc's Town. So many fun places to photograph!

Timeraiser - Artists

I had two fun evenings of photographing for Timeraiser, both the volunteers and local artists. Both Sarah & Chris have submitted art for this year's event, and some really lucky volunteers won their art last year.

Please take a few minutes and check out their fabulous work!

More about Timeraiser...

Timeraiser - Volunteers

There's the fantastic thing called Timeraiser that happens all over Canada, and it's happening on September 24th in Vancouver.

It's a great way for people to get involved with volunteer organizations + support local artists! Everyone wins here!

I was lucky to meet these fantastic folks who "paid for" works of art by volunteering - I had so much fun photographing them!

Still don't get it or want to know more? Check it out -

Spanish Banks

Oh my the glorious sunshine!

Being a dog owner, this is my favourite beach in Vancouver. I met with Erin, Josh, little Adelaide and Bear there on the evening of a stunning sunset and here's a little bit of what I saw.

Thanks for a lovely evening!

I love these shoes.

Some of the finishing touches.

Lovely... now on to the rest of the day!
