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

It is no secret that photography is probably the most powerful selling tool in today’s internet age. We already know that over 90% of consumers admit to making a purchase decision based on a photo alone (guilty!). And here’s the thing, I hate to be the one to break it to ya, but no one […]

Have you ever spent an hour – or a morning or, eeek, the better part of a day – doing a photo session only to look at the resulting pics and want to cry? Or maybe scream? Maybe you never even shared those photos because they were nowhere near the quality of your brand and […]

Don’t you love it when the BEST thing is also the FREE thing?  Well, you’re in luck, friend, because that’s the case when it comes to lighting.  There’s nothing like the sun when it comes to making your product photography pop. Sure, lightboxes and studio setups have their place, but if you can master natural […]

Hey there!  Let me guess: you’ve made yourself crazy in the past, trying to come up with the most original or interesting settings for your product photography. And I’m also guessing you weren’t exactly thrilled with the results.  No worries. I love your creative hustle, your keep-at-it-ness. And now, you can relax. I’m going to […]

Ten minutes for wedding portraits, no problem! It was the theme for these two who fell quickly in love and wasted no time sharing it. Falling in love (and outdoor Canadian winter portrait sessions!) can happen so quickly when you think about it, and for these two high school mates, they found themselves back at […]

1. PLANOLY I love this app, it helps me feel on top of my Instagram game and allows me to be thoughtful and intentional about my plan for the week or the month. Basically, you can create a little “library” of images, type in captions, make lists of hashtags and have them all live in […]

You’ve decided to start your tog biz but you need to figure out a name for it. That’s where I come in to help. Now you may be searching for the perfect name for your business, scratching your brain for the right one, let me tell you that it may take some time but you’ll […]

Her email read: Hey Kelly! Right now I’m struggling to quickly find the settings appropriate for different lighting situations. I can usually get them (eventually) but I feel like my little subjects (i.e. my 4 and 6-year-old kids) lose interest by the time I’m ready, lol…. That, and I need to learn Lightroom better. >>>Such […]

Have you ever taken a break from Instagram? Maybe it was an intentional “taking a break, see y’all in a week” or maybe it was a day that turned into two and then the next thing you know 6 days have passed and you panic for 6 more. Sound about right? You wince with fear […]

For the past couple of years, I have been on a quest to discover the perfect family getaway. The sort that is as much fun for the adults as it is for the kids and vice versa. See, here’s the thing. For about the past 5 years we’ve been torn between weeklong trips to Vegas […]
