“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 isn’t easy because every session really is different, but also because, if we’re talking about what goes into a session, it’s so much more than editing. So! I thought it might […]

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?

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?

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 […]

I have this little end table in my living room that was passed down from my husband’s parents. When I had ample spare time (before kids, obviously!), I had refinished it in an off-white and it was looking brand new and I loved that little end table. Then we had kids, and as much as […]

If you’ve heard the term ‘Lifestyle Family Photography’ tossed around or appear on photographer’s websites, you might be sitting there saying to yourself, “ok, but what does lifestyle photography actually mean???”. Lifestyle is a term that photographers really love to use, but when you’re searching for a family photographer for your family, it can be […]

But really, what is lifestyle family photography???

Often when we think of family photography we think of hanging out in the autumn sun or in the dog days of summer, when it’s hot and bright long into the evening. But did you know that your family photo session doesn’t have to be in the fall or summer? That’s the beauty of in-home […]
