My couples for this wedding season really blow me away. For one, it just so happens that they're all getting married in the Roman Catholic Church. As a 'cradle Catholic', that's something really beautiful for me to be able to witness to and document.
Michelle & Mike are no exception. They are so committed to the beautiful sacrament and devotion to each other that they're about to enter into. Even more beautiful than that, they have their son, Vander, to bring on this journey with them.
I had a lot of fun with these three and cannot wait for their August wedding!
Thank you for this beautiful opportunity, friends! I'm honoured to celebrate with you!
Now at last they were beginning chapter one of the great story no one on earth has ever read, which goes on forever, in which every chapter is better than the one before.
Thanks for reading! xo
If being a millennial/living in 2018 has taught me anything, it's that the definition of family and household dynamics are forever changing. However, that's definitely not a bad thing!
This girl tribe are absolutely an incredible example of the support that comes through sisterhood and strong family bonds.
They are the best "roomie-mama-sister-auntie-daughter-niece relationship that anyone could ask for"!
This part is 100% accurate. Check it out!
This one is large and in charge. Don't even worry.

Hi friends! Happy Friday!
I'm hopping on here really quickly to talk about something that I've been asked a few times in the past while: How did you come up with your brand colours?
I'm in no way a branding expert -- I can take great photos to create content and help your brand, but I'm not good at all the facets of it... not yet anyways! ;)
When it came to developing my brand, I looked at 3 things:
When it comes to colours that are genuinely unique, that's a hard one. A lot of brand trends lean towards bright white colours and pastels. I generally find that this type of branding encourages an "airy" and calming tone. I personally LOVE teals and lavenders but I knew they were overused and I knew that I needed to stand out a bit.
This is where I needed to look at what was working for me and at the time, my personal account was really working for me! I liked the look I had going on there and was using social media tools like Iconosquare and Preview App to help me achieve it! I looked closely and realized there were images that I had taken that really stood out to me.
It was from these images that I decided to draw my colours from. I loved the blues from the plates on the right (thrift store find, HECK YEAH!) and I loved the pinks in my print on the left (shoutout to Kal Barteski and her script magic!).
From here my task was easy: pop these into photoshop, use the little eyedropper tool and drag it around until something sticks!
Yeah, it was actually that easy!
I used the plates here and the Fiat [no, not the car ;)] print on my other image and voila! Branding colours!
There are obviously many different ways to figure out what colours best represent you and the look that you're trying to achieve - but this was what worked for me!
Have a great weekend!

You just need a little portrait session to remind yourself how badass you truly are!
I met Imalka the same way all great relationships start in 2018 -- on Instagram! She opted for one of my portrait sessions a month ago and I'm so glad she did! This girl is headed to BIG places! UBC next year for law school?!
Watch out world!
Check out her beautiful session below! xo
I would like to be known as an intelligent woman,
