Who I Am
I am a fine art photographer based out of Vancouver. I specialize in photographing lifestyle, fashion, weddings and commercial projects.

What I do for TIDE
I photograph children and families involved in the TIDE program, in part to document the children’s progress, and to give the families the opportunity to have photos taken together.

Why Photographing the Families Makes A Difference
I believe that in my small way, I can give the families a gift. It can be a difficult time for the families of a child suffering from a rare disease, like the children we see at the TIDE clinic. But the families are always so appreciative of having photos of them all together.
