The Wild Kin Workshop

We had the pleasure of capturing a few behind the scenes footage for a workshop put together by Kaihla Tonai and Emily Oud. Things aligned just perfectly since we already had to be in calgary to pick up some material for our house reno and as it turned out my Mother surprised us by coming down for the weekend as well where she got to meet my daughter for the very first time. Kind of a big deal right!?

The ladies from the workshop also set up a couple styled shoots so while Lee was filming I grabbed a quick couple shots from the 70’s inspired shoot for myself because hello…Im obsessed with all things vintage! 

Here are some of the shots from the weekend and feel free to check out more info on their workshop!


That weekend Kootenay life...{ Kimberley/Cranbrook Family Photographer}

Lake days have officially begun here in my tiny section of the Kootenays. I know it's been here for a while for our friends to the west but 2/3 of my family is now slathered in sunscreen on a daily basis so that means the summer hustle is real. 

I have had a raging headache for about 2 weeks due to a pesky wisdom tooth wreaking havoc on the left side of my face, so needless to say I've been irritable, snappy and disinterested in anything involving moving my head off my pillow. However, my boys (husband, son and brother) wanted to go get fishing licenses and go to the lake for a few hours so I put my big girl pants up and sucked up the pain to try and enjoy my life a little. Even though my head was throbbing and the ride out was on another level of bumpy, we had a great time and I decided to let Kaz get dumpster baby dirty. All in all the evening contained all the ingredients for beautiful memories with my favourite people
