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 […]

I can so vividly remember being pregnant for the first time and attempting to hold my pants together with a hair elastic for months until my belly made it very obvious that maternity clothes were a necessity. It was on a snowy Saturday that my Mom and I went on an adventure to find me […]

“How long will it take you to edit this?” It’s a pretty common question that I get, but….the answer isn’t an easy one.

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. […]

the gear that is in my camera bag for a newborn or family photo session

One of my favourite aspects of photographing in the style I do is that I’m able to travel incredibly light.
