Fall is for sure the most beautiful time of the year in Ontario. Its the only saving grace between the freezing winters and humid summers. We get to watch change, a beautiful transformation caused by the loss of something essential for the leaf. I pray that is what is in store for our future, and...

My little boy turned five this late August, and while we’re still in a pandemic we managed to have a small celebration. The kids needed this so badly. Since they’re still unable to vocalize mental health concerns I am never sure how this is affecting them. However, after seeing how happy Maja was to see...

There are some shoots that need minimal direction and this was one of them. Everything seemed to flow very organically, with ease. Generally, clients I’ve never met before I am prepared to fully pose and guide through the shoot because I’m aware of the level of awkwardness that comes with new people. Especially new people...

Now that school is almost done I have time to finish this blog post that is long overdue. My roles are home have changed leaving less time for creativity outlets, but its also allowed time for growth and change. After homeschooling my kids for 3 months I’ve realized I make a poor teacher but luckily...

Every year I have a clear picture of how Maja would like to celebrate her birthday and we discuss options way before hand so we have it just right. This year however, ever since the first time I heard about the existence of Covid-19, I knew it would be a different. I had a friend...

The annual trip down south in December, a month where you’ve already had enough cold in, we decided to spend in Mexico. We stayed in the Princess Family Resort close to Playa de Carmen. The resort was a paradise for kids and perfect for adults too, although we spent little time in the adult section...

Fall has to be the prettiest season Canada has to offer. The colors, the temperature that makes you snuggle in your cozy knits, and for some the pumpkin spice 😉 Aaaaaah, just perfect. October has all of that and Thanksgiving and Halloween (holiday where you get candy=best holiday). Generally that’s when portrait photographers are busiest...

The home is where the heart is. This is how I see backyard home sessions. They’re meaningful to so many for all the right reasons. In this case, the couple was celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The home, although there may be multiple, is where they spent Christmases, had summer barbecues, and where they now...

         There is something special about summers in Canada. They’re so yearned for and needed after those long winters that people have a hard time staying indoors. Its always so interesting to see everything and everyone literally spring up with the first warm wave in May (and sometimes June). However, warm weather...

The Balkans all might seem very similar to an outsider but to those who live there know very well how we are all so different. Same goes for Hercegovina. The people, the dialect, the food, all differ so much from their neighbors that live jut 30km  away. It is the birthplace of cevapi, my utmost...
