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

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 […]

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 […]

I have photographed more people than I can count, and like anything, the process can be very repetitive. It goes something like this. Set up camera, enter photo subject, position subject, snap photos, show subject the photos, cue photo subject’s self-deprecation monologue. Next, the photo subject is back in front of the camera, pointing his […]

From the moment I met Jenny ten years ago, I knew we were kindred spirits. I mean, she loves living in Saint John new Brunswick, she has a special place in her heart for all things furry and an obvious passion for photography. Her romance with her surroundings: her world and the people and things in […]

It is a rare gift when a photographer finds herself before a naturally affectionate and photogenic couple (or family) for a portrait session. If this happens, be sure to give a silent thank you to the Photography Gods and carry on snapping away. If you’ve been photographing people (regular everyday people, not trained models), by […]

I saw her over there, side-hustling, raising two kids and working a full-time job. Her photography was really progressing, and I couldn’t help but write her a note to tell her how impressed I was. She responded with a thank you and a question: “How can a budding photographer balance working a full-time job and […]

Oh September, how we love you. You turn the leaves from green to red and yellow, you put cosy knits on boutique shelves, you whisk PSL’s back onto the menus of our favourite coffee shops, you put our children back onto buses, you resume our daily routines, and you make us busy. Oh, so, busy. […]

Headshots aren’t just for actors anymore. A headshot (or professional portrait) is the way you present yourself to the world, potential employers, clients, friends and family, and beyond. Since the rise of social media, audiences are vast and your headshot is the first impression you give to the people that find you online. If you […]
