CANADA PHOTO CONVENTION | PHOTO GAME CHANGERS
A few months ago, before attending the Canada Photo Convention, Jasser (co-founder of CPC and the Photo Game Changers Podcast) asked me to interview for their podcast! It was such an honour to chat with Jasser and to see my name among some incredible photographers here in Canada.

After listening to one of my favourite Podcasts: Happier by Gretchen Rubin, I ended up creating a "18 for 2018" to-do list! As a type-A-list-lover, I was pretty gung-ho on this idea and made up a pretty practical list of things I wanted to accomplish and even allowed myself to revise when needed because at the end of the day: I make the rules! This type of freedom felt so inspiring and energizing!
Every month or so I would check in and check-off the things I had completed and update ones that were I.P (in progress) or to get clear on other points: example: weekend getaway with Landon. Where are we doing? What month would this be in? etc.
My favourite thing ever is to declutter my closet. I get really bored of my clothing fairly quickly especially when I purchase things out of boredom, buy something thats too cheap, or buy something online that didn't fit properly and too lazy to return. So while I was decluttering my closet I came across a really beautiful velvet tank-top I wanted but NEVER wear. In that moment I actually realized I don't like wearing tank tops but I keep buying them!? Ha!! It's because I don't love having bare arms and I am always cold. So guess what? I no longer buy tank tops or tops that are sleeveless. I then donated all of my tank-tops because they would just hang there... taking up space.
But wait, there is more!
There's something wrong. I have vomit stinging the back of my nostrils, that sweet acid smell as I try to keep the food down while sitting on my bathroom floor. I'm google-searching as I always do when I experience strange sensations or symptoms- wondering If I am crazy or if another person affected with Lyme has experienced something similar.
I was on my way to a photo-shoot when all of a sudden my eye-sight went blurry, while driving, and I panicked. Then you do what you always do, you start to justify what else it could be, 'oh it's probably from all the screen time today' but then all of a sudden moving my eyes from the car in front of me over to the light above I feel like I am moving through water, delayed and fluid, the light is too bright, and then the strangest sensation of all starts to happen…
I love books. If I had to choose between a meal and a new book, no lie, I will go for the book. I know, it sounds slightly crazy, but books make my heart extremely happy and in hindsight, I really should have been a librarian...
My work, as you know, is generally very bright, airy, and ethereal. I love my highlights being blown out. I love losing digital information. I love over-shooting a stop or two. It feels like you are reaching in to the sunlight. You can almost feel the warmth on your skin. Piercing you. Illuminating you. It's an aliveness.
