Just back from Iceland. Humbled by a landscape suffused with such elemental power. Excited to be offering a variety of fine art prints too. DM for a gallery of options that will truly shine in large format on the wall.
I can’t believe this headstand is just from one month ago 😳⠀
Looking back at my progress over the past few weeks kinda blows me away.⠀
(See last post for context)⠀
What are you working on right now? Anything! Tell me! 😍⠀
I love hearing what others are working towards! 💚⠀

You may remember I was road-trippin' around western USA for 3 weeks over the summer (or you may not - it's been so long that even I forget sometimes!). As you might expect, I took a ton (UK ton, not US) of photos and I've finally found some time to process some of them, *only* a month and a half since returning 😂
We saw some incredible landscapes and I did my best to capture them, but as we were travelling almost every day it wasn't possible to spend much time getting those golden hour gems at each location. Here's a good example - taken through the window of our (magnificent beast of a) hire car on our way east out of Death Valley National Park. It didn't come out too bad though eh?
Made it home from the trip of a lifetime - France, you are really something. Here's to taking risks, getting out of your comfort zone, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, getting lost, finding your way, laughing, eating, drinking and dancing...because what is life if we don't dance every once in awhile?

Nothing makes you more proud to be Canadian than showing off the Rockies 🇨🇦❤️
My kind of maternity shoot!
Thankful to have had time to get away to the mountains with @mhubin as we prepare to be parents. It was refreshing as well as challenging, in all the right ways. She is the absolute coolest, and pretty dang strong to boot. We took more breaks than usual on the steep switchbacks, but she powered through like the champion she is. Juniper is one lucky girl to be carried by such a strong mama. Can’t wait to have the chance to do my share of the carrying!
Having a “perfect” body isn’t going to make you happier. Having a “perfect” relationship won’t make you feel complete. Having a huge group of friends won’t make you feel less lonely. Having a “dream” job, or a high gpa, or a fancy car or house won’t make you feel fulfilled.
I have spent so much of my life thinking if I was just prettier or smarter or more outgoing, I would be happy. I thought the “perfect” guy would make me feel whole. I felt like if I was just skinnier I would feel more confident.
More than that, I believed I was less than because of all of the things I felt I didn’t have.
Last year, my world imploded- I was heartbroken over the loss of a relationship, one of my best friends ended her life and I felt like an inadequate friend, I quit a job, questioned my career path, and financially struggled. My mental health spiraled in a way I hadn’t experienced in years.
And over the last year I have spent more time alone than I have in my entire life. There have been so many moments I’ve questioned myself throughout the last year- but truly it has been such a beautiful reminder of my strength.
Slowly I am learning that the only thing that will make me happy, fulfilled, or complete, is the relationship I foster with myself.
Once I stopped searching for roots in the hearts of other people and for my value in other things, I have found there is nothing more powerful than realizing nothing is perfect or easy in life- and in the face of that realization, still feeling a sense of radical self-love.
I have learned that I am the greatest love of my life. I am my biggest investment. I am my biggest supporter and my biggest advocate.
I still don’t have a perfect body. I still don’t have a perfect relationship. I still don’t have a perfect career path. I know that I never will.
But I’m unlearning that I have to have any of those things to be happy- and gosh, is that a beautiful, fulfilling thing.
