#Reddressseries Liard Hot Springs

I have always enjoyed dressing up. As a child I wore dresses (every day) until I was in Grade 6 when a boy made fun of me and asked why I didn’t wear pants like normal girls. I am happy to say I still enjoy dresses from time to time (but do find pants warmer and more practical for most cases), and when I do wear a dress I like to make an occasion of it — like this #reddress gown I made for photography. If you have never visited Liard Hot Springs a few hours north of Fort Nelson, B.C in Canada, I recommend you make a trip. Not only do we see northern lights (almost daily in winter), but we have the best hot springs I have ever visited! They are naturally occurring, and surrounded by trees and wildlife. Often you will find moose in the shallow spring areas eating vegetation year round (do be careful as they are wild and very dangerous — they are not trained photo-props). If you are looking for a remote adventure, far from large cities and light pollution, come visit Northern B.C. and enjoy what nature has to offer. #northernrockiestourism #northernrockies #travelBC #travelnorthernBC

It’s a little cold outside…

The nights are long in this small northern town in Canada; the long nights bring days where the sun barely skims the tops of our twig-like trees. The days are cold and will freeze the cells of your body within minutes. You must come prepared for what the land brings, and be ready for extremes. 

Graduation

Graduation sessions starting at $300 – for up to 3 friends. Add another friend for $75. Includes individual and group photos.

Just your son/daughter (grad) and family? No problem! $300 will include group photos with family, and individual photos of the future graduate.

Fort Nelson, British Columbia

A new adventure awaits in the North. Welcome to Fort Nelson and surrounding area on the Alaska Highway.

Winter Time

It has become cold now. The leaves are gone and the snow has turned the pine trees into winter cacti; their bristles frozen and glistening white, like tiny swords ready for a fight. The true battle is not the snow, but the bitter cold. We have a long winter ahead of us and the storms have yet to blow through the mountain pass. Here are some photos to document the winter months.

Michael and Elza Wedding – Kasteel Hooge Vuursche

Elza and Michael

In July, I traveled to the Netherlands for this beautiful wedding. The bride and groom chose to take their couple photos before guests arrived which worked out very well to capture intimate and happy moments before all of the excitement of the celebration. Michael was able to see Elza for the first time in a beautiful dress ( ) upon the steps of the magical Kasteel Hooge Vuursche in Baarn, Netherlands. The venue was well organized and perfect for this couple. Congratulations, Elza and Michael, on your special day. Wishes for you and your future together.

 

 

Indigenous Perspectives

Lynn Valley and Squamish – It was snowing beautifully all day so we decided to enjoy some waterfalls in the area – we were visited by a Raven in Squamish while we looked upon Stawamus Chief Mountain
