Life is all just one big improvisation, isn’t it? We might tell ourselves it isn't, but let's be honest, aren’t we all just making it up as we go?⠀
That thought is what makes life so interesting. It's terrifying, but it's also what keeps it exciting.⠀
Don't sell yourself short on that by convincing yourself you have to have it all together.⠀

Was so pleased to get some wonderful golden hour light on the new @okudart
in Old Strathcona tonight. Absolutely can not wait to see the final product.
Could reeeeeally go for a lakeside wine picnic with these two again!! Kasidy and Clyde are two of the most kind, honest, and caring people I’ve met. I absolutely *loved* getting to know them (and their puppy!!) better throughout their engagement shoot.
I took a trip out to Shenandoah to catch sunrise this morning with @kchumz.
It was a good time.
Jess “there’s NO WAY I’m leaving here without tacos” .... leaves without tacos 🌮 #stampede2018
Thank god I’ve got 365 days to recover
Tucked away in the mountains with all of your closest family and friends ✨
This was shot on the Isle of Arran for @toast.
This was a brand I had admired for many years so to be able to finally work with them was incredible, even if a bit stressful. I wanted to capture some of their clothes in a remote destination and only had 2 free days to make it happen. We drove for 8 hours to catch a ferry and only had 24 hours on the Island. When we got there it was grey and the light was terrible, I started to lose hope that I would get any photos. I got up before sunrise the next day just incase the light was nice and as you can see from this photo, it was more than nice! It was a stressful trip but it’s always worth it when you come out with photos that you’re proud of.
Yassssss & Yassssss! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Absolutely delicious burger and fries at @kybeccafxbg.

find someone who looks at you the way I look at midway food 👅
I hope you’re having a great Saturday!
After quite a few days of rain Scotland finally came through and gave us some beautiful light. I really hope I can get back up here at some point this year, still want to see it all covered in snow!
I want to teach them about every culture and their traditions, whether I personal believe or agree with them or not. I had always seen these images of people hanging off the balconies over the packed cobblestone streets of Pamplona for The Running Of The Bulls during the annual San Fermin Festival, which dates back all the way back to 1591! My dad told me stories of his run with the bulls when I was little girl. To head there with my girls 45 years to date when he was there and see it with my own two eyes was surreal. Dave and I stayed up all night in the pouring rain to secure our spot on the street at 3am for the 8am run. It was insane. It was chaos. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and something I’m sure the girls won't soon, or ever forget. **I still, in no way, shape or form believe in animal cruelty. The girls and I still do not eat meat or wear leather/suede or buy animal based goods. We did not financially endorse this event, nor did we attend the bullfight at night. I do however believe in teaching my girls about EVERYTHING!
Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
Writing a novel is agonizing. It isn't linear. I always thought it would go from start to finish. Bang out a few hours of writing each day. From point A to B. Obviously I hadnt thought hard enough about it. It's more like start at W go to C and then to T and to Z. And it happens slowly. It is the slowest, most agonizing thing I've ever done, writing this and trying to make it come to life.
I have this idea in my head of what I want it to be; somedays I can see it clearly but other days it's muddled and I doubt ever being able to accomplish it. But I keep showing up, keep writing, keep trying. Even if it goes in a drawer and a future grandchild stumbles on it in 60 years, whatever. At least I will have put something out into the world that outlasts me.
It isn't a desire to write it, it's a manic need. I get overwhelmed by the size of the story, by the last three years of my life, from growing up here in NL to finding myself on the other side of the world and what put me there. I need to get it out of me. But I've attached a lot of my worth to it over the past year. I love the idea of this fucking thing, and that's dangerous. I have spent more hours with it than anyone or anything else, and that's dangerous. I'm trying to detach myself from the idea of "success" in whatever it means traditionally. At the end of the day, I just want to write something fucking beautiful.
And it might not be today or tomorrow or this book or the next. But you've got to stay the course. Always. Even if it feels like it's neverevending and will lead you nowhere.
Walking around downtown with my iced chai latte in hand. French flags are up for Fredericksburg’s sister city, Fréjus. Bastille Day is tomorrow!
Moody days in the alps call for hikes in the mountains ⛰
they say the stampede is a marathon not a sprint, either way I’m exhausted 🐎 #stampede2018
some hearts just understand each other - even in silence.
💜💜 Nothing like a slow walk in the park to make me so happy! Meditative, peaceful and my special spiritual walk. So happy to have early Spring in TX. See the bug?
Nice day in Fredericksburg.
The Faroe Islands doing what they do best. Never experienced sunsets quite like it!
Sierra freaking Beukelman, everybody!!! 😍💕😭

We were very lucky this day as they’d just opened the track that lead to this place! One of my favourite views in Canada
I was sad and blue but then I met you
