How’s My Outfit?

Grace Malmberg.  Where to start.  I’ve known this girl since she was just a twinkle in her father’s eyes.  I’ve watched her grow into this beautiful young woman who is full of creativity and sass and fire.  One of my favourite things to do is to ask her how she likes my outfit.  I’ll tell you, most of the time she hates it.  I prefer neutrals and Grace’s wardrobe consists almost exclusively of bright colours that mirror her personality.  I am so grateful that she asked for this photo shoot back in September and I’m excited to share some of my favourite images with all of you! Enjoy!

He Just Has To Kiss Me

When I do mini sessions I generally say that they include approximately 15-20 images.  Well.  I shot this family for half an hour and I probably could have sent them 50.  What a photogenic group of people.  Of course, if you’ve followed my blog at all over the last few months you will be familiar with their faces.   I loved getting to visit with them out at their mountain property and spend some time exploring the woods and meadows.  The day was grey and wet, the colours were just the way I love them, and Elias was in his usual happy mood.  What more could I ask?  My favourite moment of the day probably happened when Cyra was looking through the photos afterward and exclaimed “He can’t help himself! Every time he looks at me he just as to kiss me!”  I love that kind of love.  And I love you three!

Hashtag Blessed

As I sit in my office trying to think of what to write about Alicia and her family I find myself taking a little trip down memory lane.  I think about summer camp and pillow fights.  Nail polish remover and concussions.  Late night conversations about faith and struggle.  Stealing underwear and putting it on over our clothes…  But the overwhelming thought that comes to my mind when I think about Alicia and the rest of her family is the love that they radiate.  You feel instantly at ease in their presence, as though your soul already knows that it is safe with them.  It was so good to see them again after so many years.  Enjoy a few shots from our session back in August!

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.

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. Insert: flamenco dancer/cat heart eyes/sassy girl/sultry side glance.

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.
