Ainslea Isla

This perfect bump that I shot in February, became this even more perfect baby girl who was born 12 days ago.  She’s loved to smithereens, that much is obvious. Kaitlin and Jordan, congratulations, I am so happy for you both! :)


Thanks again, friends! I loved meeting adorable Ainslea at your new house. Enjoy her – she’s PERFECTION ! :)

Cheers. xo

The next generation has started

Old and tired.

So decrepit, but beautiful. So many stories to tell, but so silent. Forlorn, but full of intrigue.


This probably won’t be the last time you see these on these ships on this blog…I have wild, imaginative plans for this place. ;)

I shot a brand new, beautiful baby today, and I can’t wait to share here on the blog. Check her out here on Facebook in the meantime. :)

Where is this?? super cool

Flowering trees and the buzzing of bees.

That means spring. One of my favorite times of year! These trees only flower so beautifully for such a short time, so when I saw the sun shining yesterday, I knew I’d better get out there and shoot before today’s rain washes the flower petals away.


So many bees! It was hard to get a shot without a bee or two flying by…


A little more cheerful looking, I admit, than yesterday’s post. :) Cheers, friends. xo


River Bones

{These pictures are for my Uncle Pete VM. Although he lives in Ontario now, I know he still loves the Fraser. I have so many great childhood memories of afternoons spent 4x4in’ with Pete and my sister, in his truck along these river banks.  Cheers Pete!}

I took a jaunt down to the river this evening with the kids, and was lucky to find smooth waters, a shoreline scattered with coyote skeletons, and a beautiful setting sun.

Something a little different, I know. Instead of posing people, I posed bones…and must confess, I rather enjoyed the shoot! ;) (And yes, in case you are wondering, I did pick up that dried skeleton, carry it to a little island of rocks in the river, and shoot it there. :))

The river, with the Agassiz bridge.


And facing west; the spectacular sky reflected in the river.


Yes, FYI, we really DO live in the most gorgeous place on earth!! ;)

(And for the record, this was a one time thing; I hope to shoot people again on Thursday. :) Looking forward to that immensely!)

we sure do live in an amazing place!

I beg to differ…we live an awesome part of the country to! :):)

great shots Kristy, I’d consider switching up my C’mas greeting wall for a couple of these. Well maybe not.

Yeh mon! Jamaica was amazing.

Eric and I spent last week in Jamaica with our wonderful Buckwold hosts, who took us to the Dominican in 2012, and Puerto Rico in 2011. Such a great trip once again! Loved our stay at the Jewel Dunn.

Give me turquoise water & palm trees and I’m happy. | The view from our room. | The fence between our resort, and the Jamaicans, who try to sell you pot the second you even so much as look their way. | Late afternoon shots around the resort.


Buffet dinner on the beach. Such amazing food and drinks at this resort! | A beautiful and unusual flower given to me by a gardener on the way to breakfast one morning. | Tons of colourful buildings on the drive up to the Blue Holes, where we climbed up the falls and jumped into the beautiful turquoise-green pools of water. | Our two teen guides who took us up the falls, asked me if they could have a bracelet off my arm. I had an arm full of loomband bracelets made by Jade, and they each picked their faves to keep. | A little boy gazing out of his decrepit house.


Sun setting… | …night on the resort.


A partially sunken yacht in the Ocho Rios harbor. RIP | Chukka catamaran. Snorkeling. A sunken ship. | Turquoise!! | Our resort from the catamaran.


Leaving. All good things must come to an end… | The sun races us home to BC, as we fly to our stop-over in Toronto. | So soft. A huge comfy bed of clouds.


And home.

Home with my wonderful kids, who had a great week in Palm Springs with family while we were away. Home with the mountains of sandy laundry and an already-fading suntan. Home with great memories and a Caribbean island checked off my “I’d love to visit” list.

Thanks again Buckwold for the trip and the fun. xox friends.

Wow, that’s a pretty amazing place too! :)

Kristy, do you know if this resort was formerly a sandals resort? It looks VERY familiar! If it was sandals dunno river villaggio, we stayed there on our honeymoon almost 5 years ago.

Not just wonderful pictures but great composition. What a wonderful collection of photos so we’ll put together

Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing

So beautiful. Amazing photography! You really need to continue-pursue nature photography… I can see very saleable nature or travel books done by KKP. The photo of the little boy peering from the run-down building is so thought provoking it belongs in National Geographic.
