Give Life

It’s been a few weeks since I finished the Quietly Loud Workshop with Kristine Nyborg and Felicia Chang and I’ve given myself some space and time to process what I was working on. Not all of it is ready to share but my assignment involving researching a topic of interest is ready to go. Honestly,Continue reading “Give Life”

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”

I Believe – A Digital Story

One of my all time favourite images is the one you see when you first land of my website. The image is of a baby in an NICU isolette. My eyes are always drawn to all the hands and contact points between mother and baby. I find myself then looking at the NG tube andContinue reading “I Believe – A Digital Story”

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”

I Was There Too: #TuckerStrong

I Was There Too is a series of conversations I am having with photographers and medical families who are telling stories of life (and sometimes death) for families with medical complexities. Meet Mark and Megan Hewson. And their son, Tucker. I happened to meet Mark and Megan at the Treasure Life beads table outside theContinue reading “I Was There Too: #TuckerStrong”

I Was There Too: Judy Dahl

I Was There Too is (usually) a series of conversations I am having with photographers and medical moms who are telling stories of life for families with medical complexities. This week, in honour of Heart Day and CHD awareness week I chatted with the Child Life Specialist who supported Kane and our family during hisContinue reading “I Was There Too: Judy Dahl”

Together – A Day at the Hospital

So Kane wants to write (another) book… As you have probably gathered the setting is at the hospital, in this case the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Mom: “Who are the characters?”Kane: “Me, you and the doctors…and nurses…every one of them.” Mom: “Why are we writing the book?”Kane: “For children and cause I’m making a little bookshop.”Continue reading “Together – A Day at the Hospital”

Tell Your Story: Sharing My Heart

Sharing your story is something each and every one of us can do. You can do it for yourself. You can do it to educate or inform others. However you choose to tell your story, just the act of telling it can help you to heal. I tell our story with my camera. The dayContinue reading “Tell Your Story: Sharing My Heart”

Personal Project: Back to Reality

Kane and I were at the Alberta Children’s Hospital this week for his dental surgery. His surgery was cancelled in April due to COVID, but because of his heart issues he was a high priority. It felt a bit strange to be there because of the fact that every one of Kane’s other five surgeriesContinue reading “Personal Project: Back to Reality”

Happy Heart Day

Here’s the photography project invitation I sent out on Facebook recently. I have a photography project I want you or your kids to do with me… It’s called the Paper Heart Project and I’ve included a link to the article where I learned about it. But it’s pretty simple really. 1) make a paper heartContinue reading “Happy Heart Day”
