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!

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 Mountains Bring Peace to the People

I spent last weekend in the beautiful mountain town of Canmore with three of my very best friends.  I feel confident calling them that because in one weekend I had more meaningful conversations than I’ve had in the last month combined.  These girls challenge me and encourage me to live to my full potential.  I hope I can find ways to do the same for them.  I found myself thinking about how my life has grown and changed in the last 7 or 8 years, and about how different my life would look if I had never met these three beautiful souls.  I wanted to share some of the most important lessons I’ve learned through my adult life thus far.  Most of these lessons I’ve learned the hard way, so I certainly won’t judge you if you need to take that road as well.  No preaching here – just some rambling thoughts…

1.  Seek ways to be generous.  I don’t have a lot of spare change to throw people’s way when they’re needing it.  But I can sure make a good meal for a friend, or bring them a treat when they’re feeling down, or share a glass (or a bottle) of wine.  Generosity does at least as much for my spirit as it does for the person I’m being generous with.

2.  But also – be generous with yourself.  I can be so incredibly hard on myself.  Sometimes it’s a good thing.  It forces me to work harder to achieve my goals.  But it can be a huge hinderance.  I was convinced I would never be “the best” singer, so I just didn’t do it.  I was convinced I would never be “the best” photographer, so I just didn’t do it.  It’s held me back in so many areas of my life, especially artistically.  Strive for greatness but be gentle and generous with where you are at.

3.  Listen.  Don’t just hear the words people are saying to you.  Really listen.  It’s the biggest gift you can give someone and the biggest gift to receive when you’re in need.  It’s easy to get caught up in our own lives, and in our own problems.  But if we can take the blinders off and tune to our friends and neighbours I think everything starts to seem more manageable.

4.  Be slow to anger, but get angry when it matters.  I honestly believe that there is nothing wrong with healthy anger.  There are things in this world that absolutely deserve our anger.  How we choose to express that anger is what actually matters.

5.  Forgive.  Forgive.  Forgive.  Goodness.  I’ve struggled with the learning of this one.  But I’ve come to understand that bitterness and resentment hurts me far more than the person I’m angry at.  And usually the anger is just a mask for my hurt anyway.  Learn to forgive.  Do it every day.  And watch how the heaviness lifts.  Seriously.  It’s a weight on you that actually physically lifts when you can achieve this.

6.  Live with courage, not with fear.  Sometimes people tell me I’m “brave”.  I always say thank you but mostly I just want to laugh.  “Me? Brave?”.  No.  I find myself so often making decisions based in fear.  Fear of hurting people, fear of disappointing people, fear of being hurt, fear of failing, fear of being rejected.  But when I manage to shake off that fear for long enough to make a decision based in courage, that’s where the magic is.  Say yes more often and see if your life becomes richer.

There.  That’s all for now.  I’m sure there are hundreds of other lessons I’ve learned, and maybe I’ll find times to share some more of them.  These are the few that have been sitting on my heart this week.  And these are a few pictures that have been sitting on my computer.

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.
