Lifestyle family portrait session

We’ve been talking about doing a portrait session for ages and this weekend it was our last chance before Sarah takes down the canvas dome that has been home for her family for the last few years, and relocates it to another piece of land. Sarah made the dome herself, and her children made their own bedrooms…the structure, the windows…everything. I can barely get our kids to make their beds! They’re inspiring to say the least. We made sure we got some photos of Nutmeg, their jersey cow, and Banjo the dog was making sure he was in plenty of photos too.

Killer Whales - Bremer Canyon WA

I’ve just got home after spending another exhilarating few days photographing the orcas (killer whales) with Naturaliste Charters out at the Bremer Canyon. Fortunately the marine biologists who are on board the boat every day do wonderful blog posts every evening detailing the day’s experiences. So I’ll share my photos here, and encourage you to go over to their blog to read all about what is going on off our south coast. It is truly awe-inspiring.

Bettina & Shane {intimate elopement}

I’ve been hanging out to post these photographs since Bettina and Shane eloped just before Christmas, giving them time to share their news with all their family and friends. I love that this gorgeous pair feature in my last post before hitting the pause button on my wedding photography career.
