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’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 […]

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, […]

If there’s one lesson that the universe has taught me, it’s that it’s perfectly okay to not have your proverbial sh*t together. It is so darn easy to get caught up in the facade, and believe that everyone around you has it all figured out based on what you see and the narrative you create […]

She was the rescue mutt that stole our hearts when we weren’t looking for a pet, and he was our life’s most wonderful and magical surprise. There is nothing that makes my heart explode harder than to witness the bond between these two beautiful souls. Appledog teaches him about boundaries, patience, compassion and the undeniable […]

My good friend used to have these things called “mental health days” where she would stay home and just rest instead of working. I never really understood that, until now. I totally suck at resting. I hate feeling like I am unproductive or wasting time and I have a tendency to create an additional list […]
