I would like to thank you all for your support and love as I continue on in my photography career! I wish you all a blessed holiday this season and much happiness and success in 2010. Merry Christmas!

My great friends and neighbors are now on my new blog. As soon as my marketing and new identity is complete I’ll be shutting down this blog but in the mean time, please check out some new family images here:

There’s even a Christmas Card design which I am in love with which is below…

Please visit my new blog that I’m currently testing out for my latest post this evening….THE BERG FAMILY. This session became extra special and you can read about it when you visit:

I’m in the process of rebranding my photography company, revising our focus, putting a marketing and business plan into place and all kinds of other fun stuff including looking for commercial space. I’m very excited about moving forward and building a new identity. In the mean time I’m playing with a new blog and have a few new posts for you to check out. Let me know what you think of the new layout….background and logos will be changing though. 🙂 There’s even a NEW WEDDING posted!

Tonight was so much fun. You’ve already seen photos of Linnea’s best friend Leland … so he’s not a stranger to the blog. Here they are together trick or treating with us parents as we walked around the neighborhood earlier on this evening before they got too cranky and hungry. We had a lot of fun visiting with the neighbors and introducing the chicken and pumpkin. Here are some photos from tonight and I am also posting one of Linnea taken this week in an outfit I just love (before she pulled the pom-poms off the shrug). 🙂 HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!! Hope you are all enjoying your night!



Here’s the most adorable little boy ever! He makes a very cute Jack-O-Lantern.




Linnea is doing the chicken dance in our alley entertaining us all. She was more interested in dancing and picking rocks and pine cones off the ground than getting candy. I shouldn’t complain!



Brandy and I walking our kids up to the first house for treats…I should note although the kids technically were around last Halloween they didn’t do any trick or treating so this was their first time out and we were relieved it was a beautiful evening and not too cold out.


My husband took the above shot of Linnea…not bad for an amateur! LOL






Leland is much more interested on sucking on the chocolate almonds box and doesn’t seem to mind that Linnea is taking his loot bag!


Our last stop at our neighbors place – Steve and Diane’s (the best next door neighbors EVER!!!)

Now I’m off to watch The Simpson’s Halloween special from Season 11. Sweeeeeeet! G’night!


This past week we were in BC for a family funeral and wedding. Here are a couple shots I got of Linnea I like and some of the gorgeous fall colours that are around Abbotsford. I’ll post more from the week soon.





Linnea’s best friend Leland came over for a visit this evening and they hadn’t seen each other in about a week. Tonight they enjoyed sharing their first kiss and it just wasn’t left at one kiss…they kissed about FOUR times tonight. We’re going to have to lock Linnea in her room if she keeps this up. 🙂

Here’s the shot I got. So adorable!!


My cousin Jenn knitted this adorable brown and orange hat for Linnea last year and it still fits her in time for fall. She’s not one for wearing hats but she kept it on for some time while I took photos of her the other day. The light coming in from both windows was gorgeous and I shot these images with only available light and my 50mm f1.4 lens. I love this lens! Here’s my favorite little girl and her adorable hat:






Here’s a sneak peek of our family session yesterday. The photographs were captured by my assistants Aaron Au and Blake Loates. Thank you both so much. We had a lot of fun. The rest of the photos will come later in fall when I have more time to edit them. Weddings come first!!!

This is one of my favorites!
