It’s the second time, Jason’s been honoured to have one of his images grace the cover of Gallerie magazine which is the publication that the Professional Photographers of Canada creates. This time it was his stunning image, Shoe-icide which has generated a lot of accolades this year. You can read a brief article where Jason discusses how he created the image on page 30.
About a year and a half ago, we had a super, extra, amazingly awesome day when our youngest child was born and we got to be part of granting a wish through Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon for Kate. There was recently an article in the Chamber Voice addition to the Abbotsford Mission Times talking about the occasion and all of the people who were involved.
The photograph above is one of the portraits we did for Kate’s grad this year.
Jason is pleased and honoured to have his artistic skills recognized by the Abbotsford Arts Council in the form of a nomination for the 2013 Arty Awards. He is nominated in the category of 2D Visual Artist and we are looking forward to the awards ceremony tonight.

Our baby, Justus, turned one in March and we’ve been meaning to do his one year old portrait session.

So when I noticed a few new teeth in Justus’ mouth on a slower day, we did his session before they grew in.

Justus is a complete sweet heart and we are so thankful that he’s part of our family.
