We’re always our own worst critic, right? When I initially entered into this year’s Shoot and Share Contest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. The Shoot and Share contest is a worldwide competition that ANYONE can enter, and ANYONE can vote! Free and fair voting, and a free contest? Count me in! Still, I […]

Have you heard? THE SNOW IS MELTING!!! I am so freakin’ excited. To celebrate, I decided to pull this Wascana Trails bridal session from the archives. Looking back on this session, I remembered that last year was the FIRST time I’d even been out to Wascana Trails for a session! Last year I did two […]

Being an inclusive photographer is HELLA important to me. I have friends from all over the trans* spectrum. I was married to a transgender woman, once. So, while I don’t know what it’s like first-hand, I’ve witnessed enough of it. A lot of my relationship with my ex-wife was spent in the Southern USA, not […]

Shawn, My future husband. It still sometimes feels weird to say those words, especially after all I’ve been through. During my darkest times and the end of my first marriage, I swore I would never get married again. I closed myself off, and made my heart inaccessible by anyone. My next crash-and-burn relationship left me […]

Yesterday was Storm’s 15th birthday! I’ve had Storm since she was 6 weeks old, and she was a rescue from the Regina Humane Society. Some of Storm’s favourite activities include laying around in her favourite spots, screaming at her brother and sister, and getting brushed. But, the best part about being Storm? She gets CBD […]

Sometimes it takes a little longer to get around to publishing things than I’d like to admit. Last year, around this time, I originally drafted this blog post. For whatever reason, I never published it. So today, in honour of #BellLetsTalk, I finally finished this post. I’m going to add a bonus at the end, […]

I’ve been shooting a ton of intimate portraits lately. Women and non-binary folk from all walks of life, all shapes, sizes, and comfort levels. One thing that’s been sticking out to me a lot lately with my intimate portrait sessions is the way some some of my clients view their galleries. I don’t mean that […]

“Obligation Wedding Guests” So, you’re planning your wedding. Sooner or later you’ll end up running into the dreaded Obligation Wedding Guests dilemma. Do you invite your Uncle Bob that you haven’t seen since you were 8 years old? What about your third-cousin-twice-removed (whatever that means) that your parents are begging you to invite? When your […]

Depression is a Nasty Bitch. Did you know that 11% of Canadians aged 15-24 have experienced depression at some point in their lives? 11% doesn’t sound like a very big number, but if you do the math it works out to almost 4.1 million people. If you’ve never experienced depression, calling it a nasty bitch […]

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been volunteering my time with Regina Cat Rescue, taking cat portraits of the foster kitties that need homes. Well, as I’m sure it’s no surprise to anyone, I kind of LOVE taking cat portraits. If you’ve ever been over to our Instagram page, you’ve definitely seen cat portraits […]
