Welcome TO THE

In January I held 3 Sweet Shots Workshops. Let me just say that I enjoyed them even more than I thought I would. It was great meeting the Mom’s, getting together for a few hours teaching them about what I’m passionate about and seeing the lightbulbs go off in their heads as they start to […]

In mid-August I had the opportunity to attend a workshop by Steve Carty in Toronto. Steve has photographed numerous celebrities including Kanye West, Sandra Oh, Pharell and my personal favourite Jian Ghomeshi (go CBC!) and his workshop was to be focused on fashion photography. I’m obviously not a fashion photographer but I love expanding my […]

I’ve been away on vacation since the beginning of the month. First in BC with my family and then four days in Toronto for a fashion photography workshop. I am SO behind in blogging my sessions so I apologize if you haven’t seen your session up yet, I am in full editing mode now trying […]

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I took Marta Locklear’s online workshop in January. Marta is not only a beautiful person but also a very talented photographer. Her images are dreamy, romantic, soft, whimsical and luscious (yes, a photograph can be luscious I think!) When you look at one of her images […]

My final lesson for my workshop can be seen below. I took my friend Sheryne out for this one. She models (ya, the 7 foot long legs kind of give that away!) and was so fun to work with. We found a run down shack/barn, not really sure what it was, out in a field, […]

I’m still in my workshop and loving every minute of it! I’m not going to tell you what this lesson was all about (I don’t want to give away all of Marta’s secrets!) but if anyone wants to guess, go for it. These photos are of my lovely sister in law Lisa and my new […]

Today I took out my new camera for a test drive! I was also working on a lesson for my workshop which was to find the light outdoors. I asked Sara to be my model today and she was such a good sport, walking through the deep snow, climbing over barb wire fences, laying in […]

If you’ve been following my recent posts you’ll know that I am in the midst of a photography workshop. My next lesson was to experiment with light indoors. Some of you may or may not know that I ONLY use natural light when shooting. Almost all photography that I love is done with natural light […]

Okay self portraits done…oh wait, not yet. Next assignment for Marta, do a self portrait in a reflection that is NOT a mirror. So I began to think, what reflects? My stainless steel bowls, the bathroom taps, my television, windows, water….yes, I want to use water. I thought about using the bathtub but I looked […]

I have started an online workshop with the inspiring photographer Marta Locklear. Our first lesson – take three self portraits. I’m not going to lie, these are HARD. AND, they all had to be done in different locations with different lighting. But this is exactly why I signed up for the workshop – I want […]
