photographER + EDUCATOR

Hello friend, I'm Kelly and I am so happy you are here! I abandoned my career as an OT to pick up a camera and follow my heart. I love the east coast and am fuelled by coffee, pizza and red wine. I am a wife, a mom and a lover of rescue mutts. I go adventuring in the summer and I hibernate in the winter. I blog about photography, business and all things inspirational.

MORE ABOUT ME

What made the cut? The Process: OK you guys, this took forever to put together but a lot of you wanted to see my 28 piece collection, so here it is!  You’ll notice the majority of the pieces are neutral colours. This is on purpose! I stuck to a colour palette of black, white, blue, pink, […]

Motherhood is hard. It’s definitely the hardest job I’ve ever had. From the very beginning, it was intensely painful, physically demanding, emotionally and mentally exhausting. You trade in the body and the freedom that you once had for stretch marks and a strict schedule. You kiss a simple shower and going to the bathroom alone […]

These two amazing girl bosses inspire me every day. From the moment I met them, I knew they were dreamers and doers and that they were on track to accomplish big things. And that is just what they are doing, together and independently. Back in the fall, I was given the privilege of photographing them […]

These girls, standing on the sidelines cheering each other on, forming a tribe for the other to fall back on when life gets tricky, inviting brokenness, showing up as cheerleaders (not critics), celebrating the others’ success and filling each other’s cups to the absolute brim with unconditional love and support. I spent a week with […]

I was like a kid on Christmas morning when the latest issue of The Maritime Edit had arrived in our mailbox. I couldn’t wait to get home and read that thing from start to finish. This magazine is an incredible resource for east coast Canadians and fans of the east coast of Canada. Inside you’ll see […]

It’s My Birthday

Mar 13, 2018

It’s my birthday today. And while it seems like each year they come faster and faster, I feel more and more love and gratitude with each passing year. Every year on my birthday I sit and reflect. When I think back on my 38th trip around the sun, it was a true catalyst towards what’s […]

http://kellylawson.ca/beginner-photography Have you ever made the perfect fruit and muesli parfait breakfast and thought, “this is so instagrammable” only to be disappointed by the photo you took of it? (Ok let’s be real: my breakfast is rarely glamorous, usually my 4-year old’s leftover bowl of Captain Crunch or half eaten Eggo waffle). Or have you been at […]

For those of you braving the frigidity this winter, here are a few tips for taking better photos during outdoor winter shooting so you won’t have to learn anything the hard way! 1. Cold batteries drain faster It is true, a cold battery will drain faster than a room temperature battery. Make sure you pack […]

I woke up Thursday morning with a wine headache, again. This time I finally decided that something needed to change. The dialogue in my head went something like this: It’s the middle of the work week. How weak and pathetic are you? And thus began my commitment to myself to abstain from any form of […]

This is Felice. She’s a culinary teacher, recipe creator, and private caterer. On the side, she works at the Robertson in Rothesay, and she’s currently pursuing her Interprovincial Certification as a chef. She is by all definitions a total GIRL. BOSS. Obviously, I needed to ask her some questions because, inspiration for days! Me: Felice, what are […]
