I have left Regina! Well… almost. 😉
I can’t believe I’m actually sitting here typing this, but…
Our boxes are packed, the studio has been dismantled, baseboards scrubbed, and dust bunnies sent scurrying into the empty corners of our loft. Tomorrow we’re packing up our moving truck and the next day we set sail for our new home in Nelson, BC.
I’m going to be real with y’all, the butterflies settled into my stomach the instant we found our new home. They haven’t stopped fluttering since! We have been working towards this moment for what seems like years now, and the day is finally here.
In 2019 I attended a summer camp for boudoir photographers. I have been dreaming about taking my sessions outside into nature ever since! I got a taste of outdoor boudoir sessions that summer. The cascade of events that came from the confidence I unlocked that week was something I never expected.
It wasn’t long after that summer camp that we moved into this old brick warehouse building which at the time was the scariest thing I’d ever done. I never could have imagined that just three short years later we’d be packing everything up again and heading into the mountains.

Our new home is just minutes from Nelson, a city I fell in love with during our honeymoon last year. Just as Shawn had predicted, of course. He’d been there before and knew I would love it.

[…] I was told that I wanted to quit ballet, I had to do it myself. The day that I finally did it I was around eleven or twelve years old. At the top of a winding metal staircase was a small room outside of the dance studio. My mother, me, and Marlene were all crammed together outside of the closed studio door. Music floated out under the crack of the door from the class before mine. I had my hands pressed between my back and the cold white painted cement wall behind me. I choked out the words that I wanted to quit to the teacher I hated. I definitely lied about the reason when she asked why I wanted to quit. In reality, she had made me and my body feel so unwelcome that I didn’t want to be there anymore. […]
[…] last years of her life weren’t easy on any of us, but especially her. We’d wanted to move to BC for a long time but caring for an aging pet is expensive. We were worried we’d never be able […]
