Laura | Desert Portraits

In January, I attended the first ever Heck Yeah Photo Camp in Joshua Tree, California.  To say this retreat greatly impacted me would be true, but an understatement.  I went into the camp with an open mind and left feeling more inspired than ever.  Being surrounded by tons of talented creatives and developing many new friendships along the way was amazing. Of course so was learning from unreal speakers like, Ben Sasso, Jonas Peterson, Parker Fitzgerald, Benj Haisch, Dylan & Sara, and Lara Jade. This post marks the first of many featuring photos taken while at Heck Yeah.  Enjoy falling in love with Laura, she is a beauty.

Stylized Wedding Shoot with Just For You Photography

I had the privilege of attending a really amazing wedding workshop in November put on by Becky of Just For You Photography.  I have loved Becky's work for quite some time, and feel so lucky to have been able to spend the day learning from her.  As part of the workshop, we shot this lovely couple in a stylized winter wedding shoot.  Nicky and her husband Scott looked absolutely ahhhh-mazing and totally rocked it!  The gorgeous floral arrangements and headpiece were created by the talented Akiko Floral Artistry Inc. ( and hair and makeup by Jack'd Up Beauty Boutique (

Here are just a few of my favourites from the shoot.


And of course some black & whites!
