When it comes to choosing which family photo session is right for your family, there are a few options and I thought it might be helpful to go into more detail about each option so that you can decide which is the right choice for you. Family Story Photo Session The Family Story Photo Session […]

Every single year February and March roll around and before I know it, I’m having to think about booking camping sites and summer camps for the kids. It’s hard to do while we’re still in the depths of winter, but the reality is that if you wait too long, the good summer camps for the […]

You’re busy, I get it. So am I. So, today I’m sharing 3 super easy kid-approved Christmas activities that you can with very little prep (I’m talking no extra trip to the store!). This December we’ve been doing a Christmas activity advent calendar. Honestly, I probably took on a bit too much work (classic overcompensation!), […]

“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? Although the last few days have felt like we might finally get summer in Alberta, fall is just around the corner. Annnnnnnddddd….. It’s time to book your fall family photos. […]

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. […]

May 22, 2019

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 […]
