featured on Decor8 and Apartment Therapy 


Melissa Milakovic is an "artist and maverick." She is the creative force behind Love Like Red, a charming creative paper company out of Victoria, BC. 

Melissa approached me wanting photos for her new website that reflected the company as a whole. We wanted to create a cohesive visual journey that encompassed the lifestyle, commercial and product aspect of her business. Her new site, designed by Tara Hust Design, launched this week and she has already had features in Apartment Therapy and Decor8!

This was truly a wonderful collaboration to be a part of and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Below are some of the photos I shot for her website and you can see more at Decor8 and Apartment Therapy.

Herbal Workshop + Dinner

Herbal Workshop & Dinner


Join Hayley Rosenberg of Nourish Tara Hurst of Tara Hurst Design and Kelly Brown of Kelly Brown Photographer, for a workshop embracing the subtle unknowns that create a memorable autumn meal.

The day begins with a tour of the Horticulture Center of the Pacific's culinary garden.   During the tour we will touch on the health qualities, flavour profiles, pairings, and mystical stories behind the garden herbs.  Following the tour we will each create a 'Bouquet Garni' from the abundance of sage varieties, thyme, rosemary and the garden's bay tree.  Next, a demonstration on creating the perfect autumnal soup stock and how to incorporate the herbs into your fall recipes.

After our time in the garden we will set a beautiful harvest table for dinner. Enjoy a discussion on layering linens, vintage place settings and creative elements to bring to your own table. Our dinner menu will showcase the aromatic herbs in each course and the paired Victoria Gin Cocktail.

Location:  Nourish,  505 Quayle Road, Victoria BC, V9E 2J7
Date: Sunday October 19th
Time: 3pm - 8pm
Fee: $148

Pigeonhole Home Store


The other night, I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest new shop in Victoria, Pigeonhole Home Store. The shop has both vintage and new home finds and sits at the corner of Stanley Ave and Bagbie Street. One look from the outside and you know this is a store full of treasures. My dear friend, Tara Hurst, did the branding which you can read about here. 

If you are local to Vancouver Island or find yourself this way, this store is a must see.
