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 have photographed so many people in so many different settings. Sometimes I find myself in a very controlled, cool calm and collected studio setting, other times in unfamiliar environments, and more often in the hullaballoo of a fast-paced, emotionally charged wedding day. And, while the circumstances and the overall environment can vary, there are a […]

Maybe you find yourself, sitting where you are in this moment, at a crossroads. Wondering if you’re on the right path. Running the ‘what ifs’ through your mind. Putting yourself out there to test out how it might feel if you just up and quit your job. How did you leave your full-time corporate career? […]

They did their first school project together in grade 8. They have the same name. They competed with each other for the highest grade in high school. They spent late nights at the campus library together studying medicine. They will become doctors together. He looks at her as if she is the only human in […]

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 […]

I started mean talking to myself again this week. You know, that ruthless little voice inside that tells you that you need to lose the roll of fat, it tells you your work is crap, it tells you that you aren’t doing enough with your life, it tells you to smarten up and be better […]

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 […]

It’s a fairly new concept, the ‘First Look.’ It is definitely on the less traditional side of the spectrum. A First Look is when the Bride and Groom decide to see each other before the ceremony on their wedding day. Often it is a little curated so that of course we can get some magical […]

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 […]

Some days I can’t believe what I’ve done. Seven years ago I quit my corporate healthcare career to dive into entrepreneur life. Heck yes, it was crazy and scary and definitely turbulent. But today as I sit here working barefoot in stretch pants on my sofa, I can’t imagine my life being any different. I […]
