Throwback Thursday – Coquitlam Newborn Photographer

It just came to me that I have only been photographing newborns for 3 1/2 years.  It’s such a part of my life and work now that, to me, it feels like I’ve been doing it forever. My spare room is stuffed full of baskets, blankets, hats, fabrics, and when I walk through stores I look at things and wonder, “Can I put a baby into that?”

Here is a look-back at one of my very first newborn shoots, and then a comparison to one from a few weeks ago.  I think I’ve come a long way!

Another year, another dream come true. Cariboo Chilcotin Guide

It has always been a dream of mine to have pictures published in magazines.  Last year I submitted 6 images to the Cariboo Chilcotin Tourism Guide and had 3 images published in their guide.  On Thursday a magazine showed up in my mailbox, and I was so surprised to see one of my images as the main double spread for the Chilcotin Region.  What makes it even more special is the fact that it’s a picture of my husband kayaking at Eagle Lake, the lake my in-laws call home.  This guide is distributed throughout British Columbia to tourism centres, as well as libraries, shops and restaurants.  As well, it’s got an online issue that you can see here.  My images can be seen on page 27 and 98.  If you haven’t had the chance to check out this amazing, rugged part of British Columbia, I urge you to do so.  It is wild, beautiful, and amazingly peaceful.
