2016 | A year of acceptance

Each year I am blown away by my clients, their willingness to allow me to create memories that will be forever kept and passed down to the wee ones they are squeezing and tickling in each of those images. Sometimes this passion is so strong that it hurts to think about and makes my heart heavy.

This year was an incredibly difficult season for me mentally. Having anxiety and being introverted is tough in this craft and I have definitely struggled this year with balancing the constant overwhelming feeling of doubt and my fear of emails and replying to people via social media – please tell me i’m not the only one that is terrified of emails?!?!? For some reason it almost seems shameful that I let my anxiety win but with 2016 drawing to a close I have taken initiative to better myself and my business this coming year by choosing my love for photography and creating emotive images for my clients over listening to that horrible inner voice that tells me i’m not worth it.

I am greater than my fear.

Salmon Arm will always be home....soon (well 5-6 years) we will be living close to where I grew up and I can't even wait. Coincidental, Lucas' mom and her husband also live there and let me tell you, their place is one of my favourite places in the whole world. On the top of a mountain right beside a winery...huge blossoming trees, a beautiful garden and the most quant perfect little house. A little underexposed shot of my mom, grandma, aunt and I. ps. My grandma is the best, she is the most kindhearted, gentle soul. Papa bought that little castle as a replica of the one we used to play with at their place when my brother and I were yo ...
