This  11 year old, (going on 16 year old) was so nervous about getting headshots done.

We talked a lot about dinosaurs.

She didn’t like the aroma of the gritty alleyways I chose to shoot in very much.

Oops.

i love dogs and i love wine.

poetry and prose are a beautiful accompaniment to both.

our Vineyard Dogs of the Okanagan book is all of the above.

it’s a book.

it features dogs.

And it features vineyards.

It’s shot in wine country.

what could be better than that?

not much.

.. when the light is just right, and the subject matter is so beautiful..

a black and white image is the only answer to a question never asked.

i first photographed this trio about 10 years ago.

some things have changed. some things haven’t.

one thing i know for sure that hasn’t changed  is .. how much

they love their mother.

this beautiful bundle of joy is named Presley.

she has the best cheeks, the bluest eyes and the most doting parents.

at only 2 months old, i’d say she was pretty much a super-star during this shoot.

instead of the usual shopping mall  Santa Claus Christmas photos,her parents prefer something a little more subtle for their Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas.

this, i am pretty sure will be Nelson’s first Christmas with a family that is crazy in love with him.

i was explaining to him that we will have a  decorated tree, BUT not one that he can pee on (like he does in the forest).

i also explained that it will be a really fun time with people that love him.

and that he will get to unwrap presents on Christmas morning.

i think he was a bit overwhelmed with the information.
