Graduation Photos

I was out at UBC photographing the VST grads in their gowns. I will photograph the convocation in May. This is the second year of taking their portraits and it is an interesting experience. I asked more questions this year about what the grads do with their degrees and it is quite varied. Some graduates go into ministries of all spiritual and religious forms. Other graduates are counsellors who desire a greater understanding of their clients spiritual backgrounds. I was impressed by the diversity of reasons in pursuing this degree.

Winnipeg Newborn Photoshoot

I had the most wonderful opportunity to shoot miss Emily Jennifer Sprague who was at the ripe old age of three days old when I met her. To be with a newly hatched family over the course of three days was a very special circumstance. I was flown to Winnipeg and would visit the family each day with my cameras in hand. Having the time to capture very relaxed moments does not come often. I felt very blessed to be present to meet grandparents and other family members as well.
