Caleb Gordon Superstar

This guy was a delight to photograph.  Not only is he devilishly handsome, but he is also funny and intellectual and so full of story.  He has such a way with words (as demonstrated by his blog which can be found here) and has a unique way of seeing and encountering the world around him.  If you want to follow his career (which believe me – you do) you can find his artist page on Facebook here.  Enjoy a few of my favourite shots from our headshot session together!

Lovely Leah

This year for her birthday, Leah gifted herself a mini-session with me.  As I look through these photos that I hope capture Leah’s gentle and fun loving soul and I think what a wonderful way to spoil yourself a bit.  I love these individual sessions that I have had the opportunity to shoot because they allow me the chance to stop everything in my busy life and just SEE someone.  Truly.  Just see them.  Leah is so many things.  An actor, a writer, an artist, an encourager, a friend, and a truthful, vulnerable woman of God.  As the sun kissed the valley with it’s last bit of autumn warmth we headed out into the forest to savour this fleeting light.  I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!

The Butter to my Bread

When I met Lauren de Graaf in Rosebud 5 years ago I was completely convinced that she dreamed in cartoons and that birds and chipmunks and mice helped her get dressed in the morning.  I decided immediately that I needed a little more of that in my life and thus we became “the Lauren’s”.  Over the years I have come to learn how much more there is to this woman.  She is powerful and determined and has a killer voice.  I mean that literally and metaphorically.  Of course, she is an incredible musician with such a beautiful voice.  I love getting to sing alongside her as a member of The Dearhearts.  But also I’ve seen how in touch she is with her heart and emotions, and there is so much power in her ability to articulate what is inside of her.  I have loved watching her grow and evolve and develop that voice.  I no longer look at Lauren and see the birds and mice.  Now I see a woman full of character and compassion and generosity.  I loved getting to wander around her parent’s stunning acreage with her – laughing and talking about life and taking photos.

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.
