Practical Tips to Keeping your home clean organized

Come January we will be choosing a different organization and cause to support!

Again, I found myself feeling I wish I had that.

Last month I turned and I wont lie, I had mixed feelings about it…

. GIVING BACKThis all started probably about months ago. The climate of the world is not the greatest and I found myself struggling to keep positive and motivated to work on pretty photos when there was so much suffering in the world. I wanted to do my part but kept saying to myself Im just a photographer…what can I do?

So you quit your day job and started your own business. Now what?

Well, I couldnt wait till I got back form Greece to give you all a little peek at what weve been working on withEmilia from Simply Elaborate! These were the first drafts and weve already changed a BUNCH colours, s, s etc. but thought it would be neat to give you all a look at the first draft.

All views, opinions, goals and bucket lists are my own.

Were still over here trying to wrap our minds around the ct that we have a one year old?! It also seems like from the day he turned one hes just matured and seems so much older. Every day hes up laugh more with the new things he does, learns and mimics!Read more Leave a Comment

Its that time of year again! I have to say I look forward to creating this round up every year. Hope this makes shopping for your loved ones a pinch easier!

Every year it feels like Christmas comes ster and ster. It feels like I blink on Halloween and before I know it its end of November and the race to the th begins.

Then one day close to after Vegas, as I was sitting in my mily room looking up at my photo ledge lost in thought it dawned on me. I had a shop. I had a product I sold. What if I changed things up and started to donate every month to a different charity, organization or cause? As soon as I said it out loud to my Mr. I knew it was the solution and new direction I had been looking for.

I started to really pay attention and yes, almost envy these amazing small business that had a purpose and were giving back to incredible causes and helping their community. How amazing that they could turn doing what they love not only to make a living for themselves, but to help better others?

Thank you for supporting our sponsors who make this blog possible XO

My vourite time of year is in full swing! We are officially one week away from Christmas and Im both beyond excited and sad that its come so quick. As of today Im slowing way down and spending the rest of the week closing loops and wrapping up lose ends so that next week I can enjoy the week off with my mily.

Last month I ventured out with my creative bestie Stephanie to have a fun daydate shooting a shion story at the latest hot spot in Ontario The June Motel! I was smitten at first sight there was no detail too small they didnt think of. The owners are not only super cool they are extremely kind which just makes me loveThe June Motelthat much more!

Creating a new collection is usually a long process. At first, I would just show up to new places have a few shots in my mind that I wanted to create but would leave a lot to chance and happy accidents. Getting lost, finding beautiful corners and pockets to capture.

Todays blog post is one Ive been wanting write for a few months now but glad I waited till now to do so because Ive recently found some amazing people I want to share with you all that I know will be so helpful to inspire you in your business.

They are currently raising funds to build a new hospital to provide better care for children. We rushed our little one there when he was only a few months old, thankfully it turned out to be nothing but I had never been more scared in my entire life. I was so thankful to the nurses and doctors there who were patient, kind and answered all our new parent Qs.
