Lake Life: Family Documentary Photography

Throwback post to August of 2019 the last time we were at our family cabin. Missing this place. This last week at Priest Lake I spent part of the day photographing our family, Ashley, Will, Cole and Mason rather than my own kids. That’s hard when your own kids are still around and demanding yourContinue reading “Lake Life: Family Documentary Photography”

Sharing Our Hearts

Photography and storytelling has been a major part of my own personal mental health and healing journey since becoming a medical mom. By documenting my life through my words and my images, I share what is happening in my world for others to see — our family members and other families. My hope is other familiesContinue reading “Sharing Our Hearts”

Summer Time!

I never write personal blogs anymore, which is crazy because that’s how this all started! Eight years ago, I wrote Finally, My First Blog Post. It was six months after Kane was born and I was coming down off the whole NICU experience. In that first blog I wrote, “Kane has reminded me of what’sContinue reading “Summer Time!”

College of Canadian Family Physicians

A few months ago I received an email that said, “On behalf of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, I am writing to ask if you would like to participate in Canadian Family Physician’s (CFP) Cover Project for our upcoming July 2021 issue.  We look for artists within Canada and in family medicine whoContinue reading “College of Canadian Family Physicians”

This is (Almost) 40

Have you ever worked on a project, photography or otherwise, that requires so much work and yet once it ends you realize just how important it was to you? That’s a Project 52 for me. For six years I documented my family’s life and wrote about what was happening in a blog post every singleContinue reading “This is (Almost) 40”

Hello 2021

And GOODBYE 2020! I can’t help it…with the end of the year, I find myself reflecting on what has happened and planning ahead for what’s next. This year I find myself stuck on the fact that I didn’t take nearly enough pictures of my boys on my “big camera”. I think part of it wasContinue reading “Hello 2021”

World Suicide Prevention Day

September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day and would have been my dad’s 64th birthday. My dad died by suicide in January of 2015. Suicide and mental health are topics our family openly talks about. Every year 800,000 people around the world die by suicide. When someone dies by suicide their family, friends and communityContinue reading “World Suicide Prevention Day”

Tell Your Story Together

Kane and I tell our healthcare story together through photography. At this stage of the game, for Kane, I think it’s something fun to do with mom, something to pass the time at hospital appointments. For me, it’s how I manage the nerves and feelings that come up around those same hospital appointments. Photography isContinue reading “Tell Your Story Together”

Personal Project: 100 New Friends

As strange as it sounds, Covid-19 and the physical distancing protocols put in place in Alberta led me to complete a variation of one of the personal photography projects on my bucket list. In December 2019, I completed my sixth consecutive project 52. For those of you new to personal photography projects, a project 52Continue reading “Personal Project: 100 New Friends”
