Last week I was fortunate enough to attend an awards ceremony where I accepted a couple awards for the quality of my work. I felt really privileged to be given the star treatment. While in Ottawa I took advantage of seeing my best friend of 15 years ! We went for hair cuts and got our make up done just like we would back in the day. Perfect girls day out !
Tomorrow I head off to Edmonton to catch my flight to Ottawa where I will receive my photography awards. I am really looking forwards to a change of scenery. I’ll be taking advantage of that by photographing a few sessions while I am down. What’s in my bag ?! Canon 5D Mark III Canon EF 70-200 f2.8L USM lens This is my most favorite lens. It creates such a beautiful compression for my portraits. Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM Lens These […]

Reflecting back at my selfie a day challenge I am quite impressed with just how far I got. I may have given up before my original goal of 365 straight days but that’s okay ! I surprised myself with the amount I did do and in the end I still managed to capture some pretty awesome self portraits. Here’s a favourite I thought i’d bring back to honour the REALLY FREAKING COLD day we’re having today here in Cold Lake […]

This past weekend I was blessed to attend an Educational Event for Photographers that took place in Edmonton during the #eep event through the #ppoc There I was given the opportunity to sit through one of my inspirations. Amanda Diaz. I am so incredibly pleased with the fact that the class was small enough where I could interact with her. During this event she had two shoots that we could observe. I took the opportunity to take a couple behind […]

I’m submitting some work into a magazine and they require a professional head shot so I had to take one. It was a chore and too much longer than it needed to. With two kids moving my equipment and photo bombing me it was pretty stressful. BUT I did manage to get one in.
Today was a very BIG day for me (and my team). We’ve been planning a shoot for months and today was the day. I feel so incredibly blessed to have come into contact with these beautiful women. Our connection is not like any other. We click and fit so perfectly well together. I am very blessed to have them. As always here’s a quick shot of us afterwards.

I let my children dress me today. I’m actually kinda liking my outfit haha. I went out with them looking like this. I bought some makeup (surprise surprise) they were rewarded with candy. I’m not back 100% I decided to take each day as it comes.
