unraveled retreat | family photography educator

You guys. This experience teaching at Unraveled Academy’s retreat in Utah this past May was beyond words. I met the most incredible people and fostered some new relationships that I know will sure to be inspiring and fulfilling….I had the most amazing time and totally hit the jackpot with my family models. Im going to post the momma’s words below because she is the sweetest human and I couldn’t have articulated the experience any better.

“Late one night several weeks ago as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, I saw a post by Jayme of The Paper Deer Photography asking for a family to model for her workshop session at the upcoming Unravelled Retreat in Utah. No, we do not live in Utah, but I love Jayme’s work and I love Utah, so this seemed like the perfect mix. On a whim, I sent her a couple pictures from our family session last year really not expecting to hear anything back, but to my surprise, she emailed me the very next day. That’s when the panic set in, because you see, I hadn’t mentioned any of this to my husband… Would he be okay with the idea of getting our family of six all the way to Utah just for a photo shoot!? Honestly, I hadn’t even thought through the logistics of it myself. Thankfully, he loves me enough to put up with my crazy ideas, and I have to tell you, this shoot — and really the entire weekend— was something I’ll never forget.

I don’t know what kind of magic Jayme sprinkled on my crew, but my kids — all FOUR of them — seemed to have the best time. They loved on each other like you kind of dream they might. Yes, they do occasionally get along, but for all four of them to be happy and playful at the very same time? That only happens when all the stars align (and it certainly wasn’t happening on our two hour drive from our hotel to where the shoot happened haha). Even my husband enjoyed himself, and we all know how dads generally feel about photo shoots.

Jayme captured all kinds of belly laughs and sweet giggles, and even though we’re a normal family who has our share of bad days, I can feel all the loveand all the good in these photographs. I can hear their laughter and see their souls. Each of their personalities shines through. And, this…..this is worth the world to me. The photographers attending the workshop were the most genuine of souls who made us feel so loved and comfortable (because getting photographed by 20+ people isn’t something we do…..ever), and to be in front of their lenses and to have received so many beautiful images from this evening has been a complete gift. I know I’ll be sharing more from this magical night, but for now, here are some of my favorites taken by Jayme.”

Thank you so much for trusting myself and unraveled Sonja, I can not wait until I can see you and your crew again <3

The Family Narrative | International Family Photographer
Back in the spring of last year, I was contacted by my sweet friend Posy Quarterman about speaking at this new workshop put on by four pretty fantastic boss ladies that focused SOLEY on the genre of family photography. After suffering with the stigma that family photography was not viewed as important as other genres (i.e.. weddings) and being told by their peers that photographers that only shoot family's would never be able to make the money that wedding photographers make, they decided to push back and create something that nobody has. They want to empower us, to let people know that yes, we ARE worth it and family photography IS worth eve ...

I'm not really sure how to start this....I'm at such a loss for words about how much these woman mean to me...how much I need them...how much a miss them daily...and how much I can't wait to see them next year. Joy has changed my life in more ways than one. Not only has she introduced me to some of my now best friends, photographed our own family, and opened a door to seeing life in a whole new way, but she has become a true friend. Her honest and heartfelt outlook on  women, whether it be as business owners, aspiring photographers, or as mothers, wives, girlfriends, etc is just so empowering....please  take a moment or two to read through t ...

the watt family | red deer lifestyle photographer
Some of you may recognize this beautiful family from a few posts I did this spring. Lyndsey is a good friend of mine and back in the spring she was diagnosed with breast cancer, at the young age of 29. (You may take a look back at the beginning of her journey here & here) nearly 6 months has passed, full of chemo, sickness, good days and bad days, struggles and  triumphs. But I am happy to say that her chemo was discontinued early due to the great response the cancer was having to it. We decided to celebrate by having a little lifestyle session in their home at the beginning of October. They snuggled in bed, read their favourite books, ...
