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 […]

On the day Alberta announced in-school classes were ceasing (March 13, 2020), I decided that this momentous time in history needed to be documented. For years I’ve photographed my family daily, but as my girls grow, my daily shooting as slowed. They spend more time away from me and more time with their friends, which […]

Over the last few years, I’ve fallen in love with reading again, but over the past 6 weeks, it has become a total lifeline for me while staying at home. Most nights you can generally find me either watching totally trashy reality TV or engrossed in a new novel. It’s just the escape I need […]

Ok, so we’re all home and we’re all creating day after day, after day! Crafts and drawing and paper airplanes and paper houses. It’s all great and is keeping us occupied with our kids, but also, it can become OVERWHELMING! If your house is anything like mine, the paper and miscellaneous craft junk is overtaking […]

For the last few weeks, I’ve been popping on Instagram daily talking about all sorts of random topics. Never in my life did I think I’d be showing you the inside of my fridge, my hair routine, or my top knot trick, but these are weird times, and so they call for weird Instagram stories.  😂 Over the […]

Reading Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid Ahh, this book! My favourite so far this year by far. It was fast-paced, easy to read and yet so nuanced. There were many times I’d read a line and then later on down the page I’d realize how important something in that line above was, without […]

A creative self portrait using Lightroom and Photoshop of Kelly marleau of Fiddle Leaf Photography in Edmonton, AB

Mar 14, 2020

Before I started my photography journey I had no idea about the roller coaster that is the creative process. I find with client work I’m generally inspired as I’m in different homes with different light and I can always find new angles and framing options. But my own house? My own kids? A totally different […]
