    "Carey’s understanding of our corporate needs makes her invaluable to our team. Every assignment is done on time, on budget and creatively." - Jonathan Peyton, Media Producer, WorkSafeBC

In one very short year, she’s become my most photographed model. Once again, here’s my niece, Elsa. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since this. For this last photo shoot before the snow started to fall, we dragged the rest of the family along for a mini session. It was a gorgeous day with perfect lighting, and Keith might have even cracked a smile for this one.


My niece is six months old, and I’m insanely jealous that someone with chubby rolls and pasty white skin can be this cute. Elsa is gorgeous and happy and giggly. She’s also a diva in the making, and can certainly strike a pose for the camera. Her big brother and my favorite little man, Jaxon, also joined us for a few shots.  Elsa, cheese, Elsa, cheese, Elsa, cheese.



I just received a delivery of apples from the Okanagan (the largest and most beautiful ambrosias you’ve ever seen), and was reminded that I never posted these images from my last Okanagan photo shoot.

I spent two rainy, cool days in Kelowna apple orchards while WorkSafeBC filmed a video on tractor safety. Although it certainly wasn’t vacation weather, we couldn’t have paid for a better soft box- those overcast skies were consistent for the entire two days. Thanks to this crew from Vancouver for including me in the shoot. It was great to watch your creative minds at work.

WorksafeBC has an impressive collection of videos focusing on safety in the workplace, from agriculture to healthcare. Some of those videos were highlighted in an article I wrote for the latest issue of WorkSafe Magazine.

Jaxon was already rubbing his eyes when he arrived at Auntie Carey’s house tonight. He was clearly done trick or treating, and not in the mood for a photo shoot. So this was short. And so sweet. Elsa was the cutest flower EVER. And Jaxon dressed up as his dad- doing a darn good job with everything from the hard hat and blue bomber tuque to the Carhartts and Converse sneakers. This photo shoot will have to continue another day, because we were all ready for bed.

I’ve been fortunate to work with exceptional people. One of them is Pattie Fair, a Prevention Officer with WorkSafe BC, and more recently, her dog Zak. I worked closely with Pattie on the Mexican Agriculture project, and several WorkSafeBC assignments throughout the Okanagan Valley. Pattie practices what she preaches, and takes a very personal approach to worker safety and hazard prevention. We should all be as passionate about our work as she is. As for Zak, he should certainly be considered for the role of mascot with WorkSafeBC. Here they are. Pattie, thanks for all your hospitality and support on my last Okanagan visit. Miss you both.
