Together

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 struggled with the fact that it is not just my story to tell. Together is a project aboutContinue reading “Together”

Telling Our Story

Thursday was Kane’s cardiology appointment. As many of you know, I tend to get a little worked up before this appointment. But not this time! 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”

Storytellers Photo Conference

I can’t even put into words how grateful I am to have been able to attend the first ever Storytellers Photo Conference. I’m not sure how I first found out about it, but I committed immediately and it has been my “something shiny” to look forward to for more than 9 months. This past weekContinue reading “Storytellers Photo Conference”

What if…

What if hospital families who shared their stories through my lens were gifted the photos and nonprofit organizations had real life stories to work with? Let me explain where that came from… I actually wrote my what if statement awhile ago when I was listening to Rachel Hollis’ book, Girl, Stop Apologizing. In her book,Continue reading “What if…”

Voluntography – Special Edition

Meet Khai. Khai loves to play peek-a-boo and according to his mom, Julia, and his grandma, Kathy, he’s pretty fly for a small guy! This little warrior turned one on February 10th. And his first year has not been so easy. When I shoot for a family staying at Ronald McDonald House I send myContinue reading “Voluntography – Special Edition”

The Stories We Live – CHD

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions…Last Friday, during my “Yes Day”, I spent some time reflecting on what’s been going on for us recently and ended up writing for this week’s blog. Below is what I wrote one week ago. I find the days leading up to one of Kane’s big medicalContinue reading “The Stories We Live – CHD”

This is Us – CHD

This week, Kane was at the Stollery Children’s Hospital two different times for his bi-annual cardiology appointment. On Monday, Harrison took Kane for his echo and then on Thursday I took him back again for his ECG and his appointment with his cardiologist. There are so many things I love about the Stollery. My favouriteContinue reading “This is Us – CHD”

I See You, Momma

Recently, I had an hour of time before a shoot where my kids were being cared for and I was free to sit in a coffee shop and catch up on Click magazine. In the January/February issue, there was an article by Me Ra Koh titled, I See You. There were so may things sheContinue reading “I See You, Momma”

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”

This Week in Pictures – Heart Day

Look I made it in the frame!! Sunday morning I decided since it was my turn to be up with the kiddos that I was going to set up the tripod and capture a little of what our life is like. PS As you can probably tell Kane loves clicking the remote. Mav thinks theContinue reading “This Week in Pictures – Heart Day”
