21 Weeks: Caregiver Documentary Photography

And just like that our world changed. Some of you are caring for family members in isolation, many are suddenly working from home with kids underfoot, many more have been laid off and are uncertain of what the future holds, others are on the front lines in healthcare roles and essential services working everyday toContinue reading “21 Weeks: Caregiver Documentary Photography”

Personal Project: March Madness

Join me on a little visual journey of our new normal… Kane’s spring concert was the last group event we attended. It was way back on March 11th. Our home has begun to look a little different as we have tried to create some consistency and routines following Alberta school closures on March 16th. AndContinue reading “Personal Project: March Madness”

Nguy: Family Documentary Photography

A few weeks ago, I got to spend time with the Nguy family. Our family documentary photography session began at their home, just as Grayson was waking up from his morning nap. Once things settled and everyone was dressed in their outdoor gear we headed out to the local lake for some skating. The weatherContinue reading “Nguy: Family Documentary Photography”

Click with Kids: Schedule this…

Click with Kids Project #6 My kids are home…from school…indefinitely. This is what my dining room wall looks like right now. Some of it was pre-covid, actually most of it was. We were really working on building consistent expectations and routines with the kids, particularly with mom being away for conferences throughout February. My originalContinue reading “Click with Kids: Schedule this…”

There is often wrestling going on in our house. But even better than wrestling at our house is when we head over to the Canmore Recreation Centre’s drop-in gymnastics program. We go to burn off energy, but also as a way to take care of our mental health. Our boys have a LOT of energy!Continue reading “Brain and Body Breaks”

CT Story

Waiting…Kane and I are experts at waiting. Waiting at an appointment. Waiting for an answer. Waiting to play a game (because mom won’t let you have screen time the majority of the time you are waiting!) We are pretty good at bringing things to do while we are waiting. For me, it’s my camera. ThisContinue reading “CT Story”

Just Another Day

Life with a medical kid is interesting. There are times where our family is pretty normal, well, you know, as normal as any family is! And then there are times where it feels like the medical appointments and discussions about challenges and where to go next take over. We are in that right now. InContinue reading “Just Another Day”
