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? […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Motherhood is hard. It’s definitely the hardest job I’ve ever had. From the very beginning, it was intensely painful, physically demanding, emotionally and mentally exhausting. You trade in the body and the freedom that you once had for stretch marks and a strict schedule. You kiss a simple shower and going to the bathroom alone […]
