Powder room blues, by @cathyradcliffe I do love this teeny room...I had to make myself super small to shoot it. To be honest, I was hovering over the toilet. Ahh, the glamour of it all;) Featured in @houseandhomemag #powderroom #wallpaperdecor #interiorsphotographer #shotoncanon

A beautiful, summery, light filled, home that was actually shot on a very wintery day in Vancouver. One of the reasons why white is a popular choice in our vitamin d deficient city;) This lovely space was designed by @rebeccahepburndesign @architrix_studio and was featured in @styleathome magazine. #fiddleleaffig #summerinterior #windowseat #shotoncanon

Cozy, green, corner of a beautiful bedroom designed by @bidgoodco Going through the archives today, for a bedrooms, and have always loved this one. The mix of mid-century, antiques, and beautiful bedding is perfection. Always have a soft spot for old-timey typewriters too;)

I spy a tiny A-frame structure. My dream cabin...and it’s up in the trees! #aframe #cabin #cypressmountain #explorebc #beautifulbc #ohcanada

Plants. I’ve had a love of them my entire life. As a kid, I would dust and polish each and every leaf....actually, I still do;) This beautiful, plant filled, house was designed by the lovely and talented @karladreyerdesign I should add, this post was inspired by the @pechakuchavancouver event last night....all about plant life 🌱 #plants #houseplants #plantlife

Remembering this incredible human being today. Robert @provide_home was a stellar man. My heart goes out to, and wraps around, his husband David. This pic is from the last shoot I had where Robert modelled for me...he was always a good sport;) I’m really going to miss this beautiful gentleman.

I’m kind of feeling like these guys today. Butterflies truly are free. Hello Summer and hello weekend! #monarchbutterfly #butterfly #summer #shotoncanon #vancouverphotographer #naturephotography

Sometimes I wish I was a kid. I shot @little_kitchen_academy for designers @evokeid yesterday. It’s a cooking school for kids 3-19 years old. I would have been all over this at 7. Complete with mini chef’s jackets, @birkenstock clogs and an edible wall filled with goodness to be used in the recipes. Perfection.

“Forest Bathing” is what I plan to do this weekend. It will be a great way to unwind after what has been a crazy two weeks. A good crazy, as I’ve worked with many fantastic people and shot a variety of things. I do love variety. See you soon trees!

Happy Monday! As I was unpacking and sorting my office (never ending) I was re-introduced to my vintage box camera that I used for TTV photography (through the viewfinder). I took these images of poppies ages ago, and plan to do a new series using TTV soon. It’s definitely a little time consuming, but I love it.

All things Rosie (and ranunculas😉). Sharing a few pics from a pretty story I shot with @rosiedaykin at her house. Always fun to work with Ms Rosie. You can see the whole story in @westcoasthomesdesign this month...and she happens to be the cover girl too.

@Bocci Bocci28 pendants and pieces by @saragenn make a perfect combo. Beautiful colours. 💛 @michelleleejin @studiohemma @architrix_studio

I’ve said this before, but one of my favourite things about shooting homes, is that they are all different. So are the people that live in them. When I see a house that completely suits the homeowners, that makes it even better, like this one. Francesca, interior designer, renovated the home she grew up in, with the help of Sandy, her husband, and mother, Rita. Now the happy trio, and their dogs, share this lovely house. It’s featured in , and on the cover of, the June issue of @houseandhomemag Check it out to see the entire home. @rudywinstondesign

Beautiful ‘60’s fireplace place, funktified by @stephaniejanevogler at her home. I quite love the symphony of succulents too. @thecrossdesign

A little relaxed glamour for your Tuesday. Designed by super ⭐️ @peterwildsdesign I love the shower of @bocci pendants. It was a beautiful space to shoot.
