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

I mean, how hard can it be? You got yourself a fancy camera, you figured out how to take a nice photo, maybe you even had someone design a great logo or create an awesome brand guide for you, you claimed your very own corner of the internet with a flashy website, you set your […]

I’ve photographed over 100 weddings. It is really hard to believe sometimes that I have stood by and watched, 100 sets of vows, 100 ring exchanges, 100 dresses being put on, thousands of ties being tied and boutonnieres being pinned, and probably millions of laughs and millions of tears. It is nothing short of a […]

Here we go – we are doing it again – we are diving head first into the ever busy wedding season! When I first started out as a wedding photographer, it felt like each wedding day was one session of winging it after another. I mean, I would clean and prep my gear, surf the web […]

Nope, it’s not the perfect composition or the latest full frame DSLR. It’s not entirely what lightroom presets you use or even your prices. In fact, you could be the best photographer in the WORLD, but without giving any attention to this, you will never reach your full potential as a photographer, or as any […]

This week I was reminded of the teamwork of marriage. The past few days were packed with evening work commitments, parenting woes, anxiety, swimming lessons, and piano lessons. It felt like we were handing off the baton to one another as we got our work done, ran from place to place, tackled appointments, washed dishes, […]

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 […]

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 […]
