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”

Hello, Alberta Children’s Hospital

Last week was Kane’s first cardiology appointment at the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary.

This time I have had so many “shiny” things happening, related to both education and photography that I didn’t even have a chance to freak out. One of those shinyContinue reading “Telling Our Story”

Moments that Matter – Hospital Life

It should come as no surprise that I was more than a little disappointed to be told that I could not take photographs in any space other than the public waiting area when we went for Kane’s MRI. So here is a small slice of what Kane’s MRI experience was like from the point ofContinue reading “Moments that Matter – Hospital Life”
