My experience as a medical mom lies at the heart of my passion for documentary style photography. Based in Canmore, Alberta with my husband and two sons, I have been telling stories through photography for the past 7 years. I am also an educator and speaker.

When my son Kane was born 8 weeks early in 2012, I had my camera with me during most of the 54 days we spent in the NICU. Six months later I began sharing my family’s story through images, photographing our time in the hospital during Kane’s heart surgery in 2013 and again in 2019.

My early career began with photographing Ronald McDonald House families. I have since worked with many medical families and am passionate about telling their stories both in and out of hospital, helping them see their strength and resilience.

I offer storytelling photography sessions for families and companies, as well as Pay It Forward sessions that can be gifted to medical, special needs, or palliative families.

My background as a teacher inspires my love for mentoring others. My most recent projects are about teaching others how to tell their own story through photography.

I share my family’s story in hopes that others can see that they are not alone. With my camera and my words, I want to create space for others to heal.

I share the story of our lives.
Partly, so our family can see us.
Partly, so other families can see themselves.
But mostly for me, because photographing, writing, and talking about our successes and challenges helps me to heal.

Here’s a little of what I’ve been up to during 2020…
