A dad and his kids during a newborn photo session in Ardrossan, Alberta

My palms were sweaty and my heart was racing. I legit thought I was going to throw up and had to have a lot of self-talk in the car before I stepped out. It sounds like a high school date, right? 😲​ But, it wasn’t. It was the very first time I photographed another family. […]

I shouldn’t show you this! 🙈

Last week my husband made Egg Roll In A Bowl for dinner. It’s one of our favourite quick weeknight meals that can be made from start to finish in less than half an hour. 90% of the time I make it, but this time, I was working, so my husband made it. I sent him […]

“Well, that wasn’t nearly as painful as I thought it would be!” Husband to wife after finishing a session with me. “Mom, that was actually fun! I looked at the camera and it was OK!” 12 year old to his mom after finishing a session with me. “I love that lady!” A 4-year-old’s words to […]

Ok, ok. It’s not a bar. It’s my house. But! What happens if those things walk into a house together? (Let’s be honest, they don’t walk – they arrive in my mailbox and I bring them inside with glee, but let’s run with this little joke, shall we?) Well, they become COVID faves. My very best […]

When you’re pregnant, well-meaning people tell you a million random pieces of advice. Right? Sleep when baby sleeps (totally useless advice for me). Shower and get dressed to feel better (meh, decent). Stick to a schedule at all costs. Don’t worry about a schedule. Have a flexible schedule. Go with the flow. Be rigid and […]

Do I dare say that it is starting to feel like a semi-normal state around here again? Yes, things are still very different. No indoor playdates, no restaurant dining, masks all the time and so much time at home. We’re still being extremely careful, but, once summer break hit and once I was able to […]

It was the last week of June 2011 and I was approximately 8 million weeks pregnant. (Or 37 weeks…but, I swear her head felt like a 10 lb bowling ball that was seconds away from dropping out of my body, so it felt like 8 million weeks.). It was a sweltering day and I’d been sitting in my […]

Camping season is finally upon us! We headed out for the first time this past weekend and after being in our home for the past 12 weeks, driving just a few hours north felt like a major vacation. New trails! New ice cream shack! New sunrise to wake up to! It was magical. We’ve camped […]

Truth…. What I really wanted to call these photos is DRIVE-UP-NOT-BORING-FINE-ART-NOT-IN-SCHOOL-PORTRAITS. But, that would have been a little much right? So, NOT IN SCHOOL portraits it is. Don’t let the simple title fool you though. Because these photos will be DRIVE UP. Meaning that you drive right on up, pop out of your car and […]
