Remembering a Splendid Summer Soiree

A few days ago, I started going through some old photos and stumbled upon these ones.  Two years ago, I had the pleasure of shooting the Summer Soiree fundraiser at Le Vieux Pin winery in the Okanagan.   I still love looking at these and hopefully will get to shoot another event like this again.  A few of my favourite pictures are below, but if you'd like to see the entire gallery, you will find it here.

The event design was by none other than the amazing Simon Cooksley.

A hockey stick signed by the Vancouver Canuck players was one of the silent auction items up for grabs.

A Couple of Beach Bums

We took the boys camping last weekend in Tofino.  We had such a mix of mostly overcast weather and rain, with a little bit of sunshine thrown in.  But the boys didn't care.  They just wanted to hang out at the beach no matter what the weather.  Here are a few portraits of the kids enjoying this amazing Vancouver Island beach.

Love shooting them with their yellow raincoats on overcast, grey days like this.











"I love Tofino Beach!"









How they loved the waves crashing against their little bodies.
