The Sandermans

I’ve never been a morning person.  Seriously.  Ask anyone who has seen me in the morning.  It’s not my best time.  Especially if I haven’t had my coffee yet.  But last week I got to do a session with these sweet kids in the stunning morning light, and it might just have converted me.  Okay.  Probably not.  But although I still don’t really like being awake in the morning, I have decided that I LOVE to shoot in the morning light.  I’ll sacrifice my sleep if I get to experience this light in my camera every day.  It’s just different than sunset light (which I used to think was my favourite).  It’s bright and crisp and fresh.  The whole day is before you and full of possibilities and opportunities.  Dew still sits on the leaves and a fog lingers in the valley.  The singing birds aren’t drowned out by the sounds of cars and people.  It’s peaceful and exciting all wrapped into a big pile of beauty.  Alright, I’m gushing.

I suppose it helped that my subject matter was ADORABLE.

A Dearheart and a Gentleman

I was so grateful to spend this evening with a couple I know so well.  We headed out on a sunny  evening but about halfway through the session a huge vibrant blue storm cloud moved in.  Although we didn’t get the romantic sunset session we were planning for, I think this was probably even better.  For some reason I feel like it suited these two better.  They are passionate and stormy and beautiful and authentic.  They pursue their art with determination and confidence.  They don’t shy away from projects that might be difficult or controversial but do their very best to be true to who they are and who they are striving to be.  They are respectful and playful with each other, laughing easily, challenging each other, caring for each other.  I find them quite inspiring to be around, for a lot of different reasons.   They meet obstacles and challenges face on and they manage to be gracious with each other through it all.  I am so lucky to have these two in my circle of people.

Jesse Lynn, Artist

 

It was such a pleasure to get to shoot some new headshots for Jesse Lynn last week.  Half an hour before we were supposed to meet it was pouring rain.  My mind was scrambling trying to figure out where we could do this shoot if the rain didn’t let up.  But all of a sudden it did, and the sun came out and we had the most lovely evening.  What a beauty!  She is a natural in front of the camera and was so easy to work with.  I first met Jesse when she came to study at Rosebud School of the Arts and have loved watching her grow and develop her artistic self in so many different areas.  She currently works in the Calgary area as an actor, visual artist, and model, stage manager, and playwright.  You can check out her website here! Thanks for the shoot Jesse!

This Is Brynn

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.  These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.  Beautiful people do not just happen.”

| Elizabeth Kubler-Rosss |


As a society we determine beauty most often by what we can see.  We judge the symmetry of a person’s face and the fitness of their body.  We quickly make judgements on people’s worth and social standing based on a very limited set of qualifications, none of which have very much at all to do with what makes a person beautiful. As women we compare ourselves to each other based on this same list.  We criticize the parts of ourselves that we feel are lacking and work so hard to minimize our flaws.  When I look at Brynn Linsey I see a beautiful woman.  Physically, outwardly, she is beautiful by any standards.  She has a unique and compelling sense of style, she is tall and slender and with big blue eyes and “stop you in the street” hair.  She is beautiful.  But the loveliness that is Brynn comes from the shining light behind her eyes that speaks to years of hardship and struggle and joy and love.  She is beautiful because of her grace and compassion and empathy.  She has earned her beauty.  It was an absolute honour to have the opportunity to spend some time with her this week capturing the inner beauty as well as the visible.  This is Brynn and she is beautiful.

Toilet is the Funniest Word

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing my aunt and uncle and their delightful family.  Living across the continent from them means I haven’t seen them in almost four years and it was so wonderful getting to spend a few days with them and getting to see how much the kids have grown up.  They are busy and active and full of ideas and imagination and joy.  They move seamlessly from child play to adult conversation and I enjoyed so much the time I was able to spend with them.  After my Dearhearts concert on Tuesday we snuck out for this quick session and they were so much fun to capture.  They love to make each other laugh and are so comfortable being silly around each other, which makes my job so much easier.  At one point they each told me what they think is the funniest word they know and I think “toilet” won by a landslide.  And of course our shoot had to end with a good old rock throwing competition.  It got heated at times but they wouldn’t be half Hamm if it didn’t…

Here are a few of the photos from my session with the Epp family, along with a few from our trip out to Canmore and Banff.  I can’t wait to spend some more time with them this August!

I Think I’d Be Sleeping Beauty

This blog post is dual purposed.  Firstly it is to show off the beauty that is Alysa Glenn in the form of some headshots I took for her recently.  I’ve watched Alysa on stage, in class presents, and performed musically with her as a member of “Inga and the Birds”.  I can confidently say that she is a true example of courage and beauty in all that she sets herself to.  She has a gentleness about her that makes you trust her immediately. It’s almost a maternal energy.  She is gracious and caring and I’ve often seen her go out of her way to be generous with her time and energy when other people are in need.  It was a privilege to capture some of that raw beauty with my camera.  

Secondly, this post is intended to encourage you all to come to Rosebud this June to take in her final project presentation.  As a part of her last year of education at Rosebud School of the Arts, she, with the help of two co-creators, has come up with a piece of devised theatre called “If I Was a Fairytale Princess, I Think I’d Be Sleeping Beauty”.  A story based on Alysa’s own life, seen through the eyes of a character she calls “Poppy”.  This honest and courageous story is not to be missed.  Conrad Belau, a co-creator in this project says “it’s told like a children’s story, but it actually is a fantastically relevant and raw look at depression and anxiety. Alysa’s work is bold and fearless and downright impacting to be witness to. Her courage to step into her own personal story in creating this play has been the true life force behind the creation process.”

 I’ve attached some information below, or you can find it on her Facebook page.

Show Dates and Times:

  • Friday June 26 – 7pm
  • Sunday June 28 – 2pm and 7pm
  • Monday June 29 – 7pm

Tickets are $10 At the Rosebud Community Hall Gymnasium. Doors open 15 minutes prior to showtime.

To book tickets please email: goldenhourtickets@gmail.com

King Of The Road

Lately when people ask me how I’m doing my go-to response is “exhausted”.  I’m in the process of packing up for my 8th move in 7 years and I’m completely wiped!  I recently read something – I can’t remember where (let’s be honest, it was probably a meme on Pinterest) that caused me to consider what my summer will look like.  More specifically, how I can make a concentrated effort to fill it with wonderful memories that I can look back on and cherish.  This will be an unusual summer for me.  I live in this tiny hamlet that I absolutely love and is crammed full of people that I couldn’t do without.  And when I say crammed, I mean crammed.  When I found myself in the position of needing to find a home at the end of May I wondered how I would be able to do it.   So [due to all this crammed-ness] without giving you all the nitty gritty chaotic details, I will be spending the summer essentially camping.  In an authentic 1970’s Winnebago.  Now, I could approach this in one of two ways.  I could get super stressed; panic about the increased chances of running in to moths and mice, and the tighter quarters.  Or I could see it for the adventure.  An opportunity to connect with my family, and with my inner outdoorsman.  Make it more of an outer outdoorsman.  See what I did there?  Anyway.  Because I am an optimist – choosing to chase the light, I want to take a few moments to publicly make some promises about how I will spend my summer.

IMG_1709

 

I will seek out opportunities to practice living what I love.

I will nurture my relationships and take initiative in them.

I will play my instruments every chance I get, and work to take significant steps forward musically.

I will take photos every day.  Even if it’s just with my iPhone.  But preferably not.  I will take the time to capture this amazing life I’m living.

I will do laundry once a week.  It’s my least favourite chore, but there is only so much space in a trailer…

I will spend time outside exploring the world around me and teaching my girls to love it too.

I will actively work to grow my business, and work at networking with other artists.

I will be easy on myself, and give myself permission to be exactly where I am, without the pressure of needing to always have it together.

I will live “for now” and worry less about the future.

 

What will you do this summer?  I’d love to hear.  Message me here or email me at laurenhammphotography@gmail.com.
