I’m always up for enriching my photography portfolio so when I saw that The Opentrunk Workshop was putting on a Boudoir Styled Session I ordered a ticket right away! Then I thought, oh my gosh! Boudoir. What am I getting into. Panicked a little, I tried rounding up some troops to come with me to learn along side me. Unfortunately it was short notice, not takers. I was on my own! Off I went to WaterValley to the cutest little church. Shaking in my pants but also super excited. The rest is history and I CAN’T WAIT to take part in the next styled session by thee sweet Heather. Heather and Meg Skalicky put on a beautiful Styled Boudoir Session + I met some amazing local photographers, some of which I still follow and even get the sweetest support from (Thanks Noel, you’re such a sweet cheerleader for so many other women in the industry! - check, her, out!

That time I captured an amazing birth!

I have taken well over 150,000 photos since my girls were born. I absolutely love babies + photography. So much so that my dear friend Louise (@birthumentary) captured the home birth of my youngest Lexi. AMAZING + best most memorable experience I might add. I treasure those images and will for my entire life. Best gift I’ve ever been given. I never in a million years thought I’d be asked by that same dear friend to be the backup photographer for a sweet client she was to be photographing their birth for. Timing decided that I would be their photographer. Most nerve-racking but AMAZING experience and privilege I have had. I’ll treasure that opportunity forever.

Here are a few of my very favourite images from that special night/day :)
