I love a good #momhack. Little things that can just make your life that much easier.  You too? I’m all too well acquainted with the chaos that can come with kids, so here are a few of my favourite tricks to make life just a tiny bit less crazy (because let’s be honest here, it’s always going […]

Pumpkin spice lattes are available, mornings are crisp and school is back in (you’d better bet I partied a bit!). You know what’s coming, right?

If there’s one thing that I am firmly against in life, it’s saying “CHEESE”.  9 times out 10, cheese results in unnatural, forced smiles and just general silliness that isn’t what I’m after.  So, what’s a mama to do, then? When you really want a photo of your kid but you’re getting that weird-serial-stalker face […]

I’m on a roll! It used to take me months to finish a book and I’d often leave it sitting for so long that by the time I’d pick it up again, I’d have to backtrack at least a few chapters to figure out what was going on. This year though? I’m at almost a […]

There’s a question that comes up in almost every session I do and it goes something along the lines of, “So, how much do you really edit? Can you take this out or that out?” The thing is…. There’s no straight answer to this question.  Sometimes I edit an image heavily and it takes working […]

But Kelly, how much do you REALLY edit an image?

I was doing school pick-up yesterday and one of the teachers told me she is counting down as there are only 12 days left of school. WHAAAAAT??? While she was excited, I was having a total panic that I only had 12 days left until that last school bell rings. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very ready […]

When I dig back into my memory banks, one of the very first memories I have is of waking up in our old truck camper. It was beige and had a big OK on the front of it (funny what sticks in our memories, right?), and it sat atop our old grey GMC truck that […]

It can be hard. Really hard. To resist the pressure. To not want to be bigger and ‘better’. To not jump on a plane and fly to Iceland because the landscape is amazing and the mist is calling. To not wish for the most beautiful sunset in a flowy wheatfield with a picture-perfect Alberta sky. […]

One of my favourite aspects of photographing in the style I do is that I’m able to travel incredibly light. I think sometimes when you think of a photographer you imagine lights, backdrops, tripods and reflectors…and, yes, some photographers DO use all of those things, but not me. When it comes to my photography, I’m […]
