"Your dream job doesn't exist, you must create it..." This statement could not be any more true. I can't go apply anywhere for my dream job, but I sure can work hard and create it for myself! (Which I am actually in the process of working on at the moment)... Continue reading

Last month, Realm & Sky (A band from Cold Lake) played their first Edmonton show! I photographed Ben & Siobhan's wedding three years ago, so they asked if I would photograph their show (Uh...OF COURSE I WOULD!!! That's not even a question!) During their set (after I got the photos... Continue reading

A couple weeks ago I said that my "Saturday Morning Coffee" was becoming extinct as I just didn't feel it anymore... So welcome to the "Weekly Recap" which is in all honesty, pretty much the same damn thing - minus the photo of coffee. The beginning of the week started... Continue reading

June was a really quiet and chill month compared to May. It wasn't a completly favorable month...but whatever, nothing is going to top May -ever. (Have I told you how much I miss being on tour?!) 1. Hello summer! The start of these fuzzy things adorning my lawn. 2. Also,... Continue reading

A celebratory drink was had this morning as we signed the papers for the new apartment we will be renting come mid July! (I don't drink and it was 9:30 AM so we went to our favorite Starbucks - which we will be within walking distance to again! SO EXCITED!)... Continue reading

The Unfortunates latest music video for their new single (and my new favorite song) Brick By Brick came out today! It sends a powerful message about bullying. But I will let the video speak for itself... Huge props to Sam for doing such an awesome job as the main character!... Continue reading

"IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT" I think this is something that we all have to remind ourselves of every once and a while. Currently I am creating a brand new photography website and am going through thousands of photos I took to find THE... Continue reading

There is nothing better than looking at a clean and organized bookshelf! Side note, this is only partially organized. Not sure how nerdy I want to get by organization - haha! And yes, these are the books I read for fun. To me there is no sense wasting the time... Continue reading

"Work hard. Stay humble" We can all get caught up in the moment and over inflate our egos when it is really unnecessary, or when we get "there" let our successes get to our head. Yes, one can be proud of themselves, but you cannot forget where you came from,... Continue reading

I've wanted to write this post since the huge public clash between concert photographer Rohan Anderson and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus...
