Click with Kids: Photo Booth

Click with Kids Project #2 For this month’s edition of my educational photography newsletter, Click with Kids, I decided our project needed to be a little more fun after all the heavy stuff we’ve been dealing with lately. So the boys and I set up a photo booth style shoot using… And they were so freakin’Continue reading “Click with Kids: Photo Booth”

Together – Heart Warrior

Together is a photography project in collaboration with my 6 year old heart warrior, Kane. Throughout Kane’s life I have photographed his medical journey and written from my perspective, but as he has gotten older I have felt it is not just my story to tell. Together is a diptych project involving both my perspective and Kane’s perspective. OneContinue reading “Together – Heart Warrior”

Heart Surgery

Last week was hard. Even with all of the love and support we had surrounding us. It was hard. When Kane was first born and we learned he had congenital scoliosis and congenital heart defects, I believed surgery meant solving a problem. Six years later, I don’t see it that way anymore. First I wantContinue reading “Heart Surgery”

CHD Dad

This is my rock. He has been there for me every time I have needed him. He deals in my particular brand of crazy unbelievably well. Friday is Harrison’s birthday. And as you have probably gathered from social media, we are still in hospital with Kane. On Thursday, Kane had a pacemaker inserted. This isContinue reading “CHD Dad”

The What If Monster

5am Saturday – 31 hours until Kane’s heart surgery I can’t sleep. I think about if I’m getting sick. I think about my to do list. I think about whether I have connected with everyone I need to about the 6000 things that we have on the go right now. I think about whether IContinue reading “The What If Monster”

Tell Your Story

Just one of the amazing things about moving to Canmore is that it is providing me with an opportunity to focus more intensely on my photography business. I love using photography to share our family’s story. Making photos of my family and sharing them on my blog is how I have built my photography skillsContinue reading “Tell Your Story”

We will be at the Stollery Children’s Hospital for pre-admission clinic on Friday the 21st. This is good news, because theContinue reading “Surgery Date”

Ode to the Stollery

One of the hardest things about leaving Edmonton is moving away from the Stollery Children’s Hospital. The Stollery Children’s Hospital and the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation have had an enormous impact on our family.  We have used their services for both of our kids. Everything from fetal echocardiograms to open heart surgery to 3D echocardiogramsContinue reading “Ode to the Stollery”

Not a Goodbye

Friday, June 28th was my last day at Mayfield Elementary.  I thought it wouldn’t be a big deal. I thought I would hold it together way better than I did.  When a school year ends I am not usually the person who is crying over kids moving on. I am usually excited about what’s next.Continue reading “Not a Goodbye”
