Ryan and Fiona had a boy! A handsome little guy with a full head of hair and a sweet disposition. So incredibly stoked for these beautiful friends. And remember the blue yarn? That's right, sleeping on a blanket made by his mum.

I predict that these two are going to be the most solid of friends. Biking and skiing and everything together.

Our good friends Shauna and Ian are the proud new parents of Sophie. Sopher. Soph. 

I went over to meet the little one and spend a bit of time with the new little family. Took some shots while there. Including at least one photo that I suspect Sophie will one day laugh at. Or disapprove of. Or both. 

So stoked for these guys.

I think it's safe to say we're all hoping Sophie won't be able to participate in Movember in future years.

the VIA rail ski trip

Last March I heard through the grapevine that a writer/skier team of chicas was looking for a last-minute photographer to join them on a mission that involved trains, sleds, and skis. This kind of gig, although not what I normally do, was entirely worth making myself available. I ventured off to Jasper to hop the VIA Rail with Brigid Mander and Molly Baker. We were let off the train at somewhere near mile marker 98, met by Kevin of Bearpaw Heli-Skiing. He lined us out with some sleds and led us to the tiny touring cabin he helped build back in the day. We spent a night under the roof of the snowed-in cabin and did some touring nearby. Saw wolverine tracks. Skied some powder. 

When it was all said and done, Molly and Brigid continued on toward Smithers via train to meet up with their friend and wicked ski photographer, Re Wikstrom. I came home and promptly forgot to do much of anything with the photos from this first leg of their journey. Now that the snow is flying again, it seemed appropriate to sift through these shots.

That's Kevin sitting on the front porch of the cabin shortly after it was first built.

Tomorrow morning, bright and early, we head off to Arizona. I've spent a good bit of time in Arizona, the homeland of my fine father. But in all my time there, I've never so much as peered over the rim of the grandest of canyons. My time has come. Not only will I sneak a peek at this wonder of the world, I have the incredible fortune of spending three full weeks in the belly of the thing. Running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. A trip of a lifetime. Or if you're Mike, a second trip of a lifetime. Here's a shot he took from his first venture down the river back in 2005.

Andrea called me a little while back about a family portrait session honouring the birthdays of her parents. I didn't realize when I showed up for the shoot that everyone was gathered to celebrate her mum's birthday the very next day. If you ask me (and not many people do), photos make the best gift. 

It was a lively session, even though we didn't venture far from the cozy living room. It was the first day of snow in town, and the flakes were big and wet. Jake and Sydney provided ample entertainment in their own ways . . . Jake doing all he possibly could to escape the camera and Sydney happily squaring up in front of it. I've included one group shot here that sums up the feel of the session . . . Jake catching snowflakes on his tongue, adults trying to interest him in something in the general direction of the camera, Sydney smiling brilliantly.

Little Adah, also adoringly called Adie, was born into adventure. From the river through the bush to the helicopter, Anne and Mike toted Adah along without a fuss. She's already been for her first flight with her dad, and spends most afternoons basking in the sun along the banks of the Columbia River with her mum. It's a good life, that of a new addition to Golden. Welcome, little one.

Waking up. With her whole [tiny] body.
