Squamish Adventure Style

"You don't need someone one to tell you about a cool place, or do research on the internet to find adventure. All you need to do is go out and explore, that's the point anyways." I've always been the adventurous and curious type. As a young girl I was picking up any...

Finding Home Deep in the Squamish Valley

A Mid-Winter’s Summer in Squamish

A Photographer's Perspective During the winter Squamish is typically very wet being that it is nestled within a valley surrounded by coastal temperate rainforest. Having grown up on Vancouver Island I find this comforting, and welcome it as a yearly challenge. I often...

A Sunny Disposition

Lately I've been finding it easier, and easier to keep a smile on my face, and on those around me. Little things that used to drive me mad don't even blip on my radar, and even the bigger things like breaking my nose barely register. The more I find myself smiling and...

Discovery through Moving Water

In the midst of moving into my van I came across a piece of camera gear I realized I had purchased, yet never used; a circular ND filter. This realization just happened to come during some of the darkest, coldest, and wettest weather we will face this winter. Not one...
