You believe in dreaming, don’t you? Oh good! I hope you’ll dream with me for a moment as I relive our last camping trip to beautiful Cultus Lake, located in the lower mainland of BC Canada.   If I lived near Cultus Lake, I would walk here every morning with a whole carafe of coffee, […]

The White Rock adventure… with one crazy story

read

Last summer I blew it. I don’t know what happened, but work took over to the point of us not even making it to the beach! I swear I don’t know what happened. And we only live 15 min from a lake, 2 minutes from the river, and 45 min to amazing resorts. Well, this […]

At long last, I can finally use this little spare room as a real live photo studio! before This area resides under our back patio that was closed in to create an extra room. With loads of windows, it had great bones but just needed to find a useful existence rather than a messy office. […]

A country road photo shoot

photo heavy post on country road beauty … continued … In order to get much of anywhere in my little community, you’re ‘forced’ to take a meandering country road surrounded by acres of hayfields, mountains, and livestock. My favourite days are those where I’m not in a rush or meeting a deadline. Stopping to take […]
