{10 FUN Facts that you will absolutely LOVE about Kelly}

  1. She ran a full (42.2k) marathon at the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon and 3 half marathons to date. {Holy smokes, I don’t even run. Ever…}
  2. Her most memorable frightening experience was snowboarding at a black diamond. She was a beginner and she went the wrong way. Luckily she didn’t get hurt and lives to tell about it!
  3. Her absolute favourite movie is Bridget Jones Diary. 

    In many ways I’m just like Bridget with my inner monologues. Except I didn’t go to jail in Thailand like in the sequel. But I did finally meet and married my Mr. Darcy. 🙂

  4. Her three favourite drinks: coffee, margaritas and sour apple martinis.
  5. She does not like watching horror movies. It will scare her for days.
  6. She sleeps with a night light. lol. Yes seriously.. {It’s OK Kelly, I’m scared of the dark, and not ashamed of it!}
  7. She does not read one book at a time until it’s done. She has a few books that she starts to read and depending what she’s in the mood for, she will choose which one to continue. They all do get read! Eventually.. {Hey, that’s better than me! I’ve been “reading” Richard Branson’s autobiography for over 6 years now… and have not touched it in probably 3.. still not done..}
  8. I am a romantic and never get tired of hearing love stories. I am a sucker.
  9. She is addicted to Saje Wellness oils and her nebulizer. She loves the smell and aromatherapy.
  10. She is currently training for her 4th half marathon for the Scotiabank Vancouver Marathon this summer. {Seriously Kelly, that is amazing!}

Some of her work!

I am super excited to announce our latest addition to our {ROCKSTAR VENDORS} List!

Yes, another totally awesome vendor hand-picked by yours truly!

Hailey Hamilton


ABOUT HAILEY

Hailey is a Calgary based photographer specializing in stylized studio portraits for newborns. For those who are more sentimental {and adventurous}, she will beautifully capture your baby’s entire journey from belly to the birth, as well as those precious early weeks. If you’re not brave enough for birth photos, don’t worry, you can still add a maternity session on to your newborn package.

Originally from Kelowna BC, Hailey is mom to an {almost} 10 year old boy. A lover of coffee, email newsletters, and all things photography related, she spends her free time shopping for props and continually learning about photography and business. Hailey’s studio has one of the best collections of props in town and if you like bonnets you’re in luck because there’s at least one bonnet in almost every colour {you might even call it an obsession}. She has so much great stuff it’s not necessary to buy or bring anything to your session, she provides it all. 

When you visit Hailey Hamilton Photography, you’ll enjoy a relaxed session where she will take the time to do it right. She has an amazing ability to calm and soothe newborns with patience and care. The sessions are booked long to allow for feeding, crying, diaper changes and you’ll get a number of different poses with uniquely styled setups. For mamas with C-Sections, Hailey will bring her studio to you if it’s too difficult for you to get to her {how amazing is that?}.

She has a large product offering from announcements to albums and canvases. All images and products ordered will be professionally edited and printed as she takes great pride in producing quality work.

Some of her work!

Feature Friday: Styled Shoot {Gothic Glam Meets Boho Chic}


Without further ado, I am so thrilled to FINALLY share with you all what I have been working on for the past few months! 

The idea for doing a shoot completely “outside” of the box, yet still maintaining what is on trend, brought me in this direction. So I figured, why not do a mashup and mix Raw Gothic Edginess with Boho Flair? Of course yes!

Trendy Tuesday: The Latest Craze in {Wedding Sweets}


Out with the old, in with the New! Well, it isn’t really new – just a modern take on a wonderful classic. That classic being the Sugar Cookie of course! 

Cake pops hit the Wedding industry with a bold strike of passion, flavour and a fun and unique added touch to each and every special event. Well, it’s time for a new contender – “gourmet” artistic sugar cookies! 

I was doing some searching on instagram, and came across this amazing page. And low and behold it was a local baker as well! So I contacted “Sugar Shimmer” to see if the lady behind the wonderfully artistic cookies would like to meet and tell me all about her business venture! 

Let me introduce you to one of the sweetest bakers in town, the face behind:
