You deserve to be in the picture

You deserve to be in the picture


She is always running after time. She wants to slow down but there is always something to do on the to-do list.
She is tired but she does not tell anyone, because she feels like she can’t complain.
She looks at her kids growing up and her heart does that thing where it’s breaking a little bit. She can’t believe they are this age already. Where did the time go?
She wants to freeze the time but she also can’t wait to see what things they are going to accomplish in their lives.
She is always torn between nostalgia and excitement for the future.
She wants to soak it in as much as she can. But she is always moving on to the next task.
She is here and thinking ahead at the same time.
She is simultaneously the witness and the main character of the story.
She is the mother, the guardian of all memories.

This is my face

This is my face

This is my face, y’all.⁣

⁣Not the face I make when I try to be sexy on Instagram.⁣

⁣This is my REAL face.⁣

⁣This is the face I make when I am laughing really hard, and you can’t see my eyes anymore, and you can almost count all my teeth (I am missing a few, thank you braces!).⁣

⁣That’s the face of joy and happiness.⁣

⁣I used to not like that face. Too many teeth. Big nose. Double chin. My skin is not perfect.⁣

⁣But I realized that this is the face people see all the time, and they seem to like my face because they don’t run away with fear in their eyes when they see me.⁣

⁣So I learned to like my face, and my all self.⁣

⁣It’s a process, I won’t lie to you.⁣

⁣But maybe learn to like your face too. Especially if you are a woman and people tell you that you need to change your face to be liked/loved.⁣

⁣You don’t.⁣

⁣I like your face. Your face is your face.⁣

⁣And it’s also okay to do things that make you feel more confident (like, getting braces, lol).⁣

⁣But do it for you, not for the haters.⁣

⁣Anyway, this is my face.⁣

⁣You are welcome!⁣

⁣Have a good day!⁣

A glimpse of 2019

Blogging about our review of the year is not popular anymore. Now, we stick to Instagram and the top 9 most liked images on the app.

But I wanted to show you what my year looked like, from my point of view. The images that stayed with me, even after the session was done and delivered.

And I am looking forward to seeing you in front of my camera in 2020! Let’s talk!

Editorial Motherhood Portraits

Editorial Motherhood Portraits

For this year’s Mother’s Day, I wanted to celebrate motherhood with beautiful editorial portraits. Motherhood is challenging and can be hard. Mothers deserve a break sometimes. But I know that what they cherish the most is a gorgeous photograph with their kids.

All they want is a lovely picture of them with their children. Of course, we all have great phones now and kids have their life documented every day. But it’s important for moms to be in the picture. That’s why I wanted to offer these editorial portraits.

Take a look at all the beautiful families who booked a session with me!

And these kids are just the cutest!

I would love to photograph some dads, so send me a message if you want to book a Father’s Day photo session.


Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Every photo session is different and this one had its own challenges. My client and I were supposed to take photos outside. But winter in Edmonton is always full of surprises and the day before the shoot, the temperatures suddenly dropped to ridiculous numbers, plus a wind which would freeze you to death if you would stay outside more than 5 minutes.

So, we started our urban lifestyle photo session in a parkade but quickly realized that shooting outside was going to be impossible. That’s when my friend Ali from Blondy Photography came to the rescue. I had mentioned that I would come to shoot in her home studio Home by Blondy for the second part of the shoot, but we had to head over to her place after 15 minutes.

But this is the interesting part of a photo shoot, to go with the flow, have a plan B, and be prepared to change your plans.
