Why You Need An In Home Session ASAP! (For those that are a wee bit scared by them)

My house was built in 1978. We’ve lived here for almost 3 years and have a reno to-do list that seems to get longer every passing month. Right now we have half a wall ripped out, I don’t even want to think about the carpets in the bedrooms and one of our bathrooms is so tiny you can basically only fit one person in it.

But you know what?
This is our home, and I love it.

It’s far from perfect, but it’s where my family lives and loves and plays and eats and sleeps. There’s dirty hand prints on the walls, more than one junk drawer despite my attempts at being a minimalist and please never ever look under the couch.

But there’s also my collection of plants. My husband’s vintage video games and old cube TV. My daughters treasures, books and favourite toys. Old printed photographs, year books, ticket stubs and a few bikes. We fill it with music and laughter and good food and friends. It’s where we have birthday parties and celebrate holidays. It’s where we dance like no one’s watching and argue about silly things. It’s where we brought home our youngest baby girl a year ago. We spend 90% of our time here and there’s nothing that could better showcase who we are.

And that goes for you and your home too.

So invite me over!
It doesn’t have to look like a board on Pinterest. It doesn’t have to be tidy and shiny and new. And if you throw everything into a spare room before I get there, I promise not to tell anyone. I’ll keep your laundry pile a secret too.

5 Things You Didnt Know About Me

I love learning people’s stories. I want to know everyone on a deeper, more meaningful level. How did you meet your husband? What led you to your linguistics job? Why did you get a tattoo of a manatee on your leg?

So I thought maybe other’s would want to get to know me a little better too! Keep reading for 5 things you might not know about me!

 

  1. I cry when I watch America’s Got Talent.
    I think it’s the entrepreneur in me. I’m so proud of these people going all out for their dreams – and doing it on TV is terrifyingly gutsy.
  2. I love flowers. Pretty much any kind, any where, any time. I’m not sure where the love came from other than the obvious – they’re so pretty and so simple.
  3. I’m from a tiny ocean side town in BC. It rains more than Vancouver, it’s beautiful, and I moved away from it about 8 years ago.
  4. I used to be a freelance makeup artist. I taught myself how to do makeup at 15, started working out of my moms hair salon, then got retail jobs over the years at Shoppers, NARS and Shiseido.
  5. I painted the entire interior of my home white, for photography purposes. The backgrounds of my images are so so important to me, so a few years ago we painted all the walls white and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I love all my photos of my kids and how they stand out in our family photographs.

Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Our Family Trip

Last month my husband and I packed up our girls and went on a family trip to Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico! My husbands Great-Grandmother lives there half the year and we got to introduce her to Mabyn as well as see her home. It was amazing and beautiful and super cool. Here’s some photos from our trip!

This Dress is From The 90’s | Calgary Family Photographer

It was mine when I was a wee one. And then almost 2 years ago, when my oldest daughter was 2 I photographer her in it. Every time I look a these pictures I’m filled with joy! How cool is it that my baby is wearing something I wore when I was a baby!?

I would love to do more sessions like this! If you have any of your baby clothes, and a baby to fit them email me!

Winter Walk in the Forest

The first time I met Mari and Sam, we we’re supposed to have a quick meeting to discuss their wedding and see if we were a good fit. Two hours later we realized how long we had be talking! They’re kind of my favourite couple in history. Don’t tell my husband.
