Photographed Cattle Drive

This time last year I was documenting the Paris Metro and enjoying time with my partner, Grant. A real different pace following a herd 52 km this year through the wilds of British Columbia. That's the great thing about photography is that its only limits is your imagination and drive. Only draw backs about this trip was the mosquitoes and limitations due to lack of a babysitter for my four year old son. I had to consider his safety when thinking of interesting angles. Nice to have his company though!

Always keep bubbles and life savers handy

Jack has no patience for having his photo taken which is not unusual for children his age. I asked him to pick out a fun hat and then mentioned that I had a cherry life saver for him if he co operated with me. Natural light from the window worked well as did vignetting.

Following a family from engagement to marriage is incredible... but the cherry on the cake is when they have children. In post production you become so familiar with the details of their faces and then when I see the couples children it's quite fascinating to see the miracles of life. His nose, her eyes, their love, pride, and joy. It's like a unique life story and I am always grateful to be a part of telling it.
