As per my yearly tradition, I’ll be in Fort St John again this September! I’ll be road tripping up - also as per tradition, ever since Brittany and I arrived at the wrong gate an hour early and almost missed our flight in 2015. Road tripping is my preferable method of travel: trees, highway songs to sing at the top of your lungs, true crime podcasts, seeing the Canadian landscape unfold, occasional happy mountain goats.
Like the other years, I’ll have a series of mini + full sessions available, but I’m also trying some new stuff this year. Much like that Canadian highway, I’d like to let the weekend unfold a bit - if you know my work with Recraft Retreat, you know that I’ve been really process focused lately, and trying to branch out and push myself creatively, which means I want to make some room for some new sessions & a little more time this trip.
SO, along with the minis & full sessions, I’ll also be offering candid documentary storytelling sessions (these are wonderful for families, and can take place at home or a location of your choice - see pricing below on these) and Wild Spirit Sessions.
Documentary Storytelling Sessions can take place at home, or even just with your family out for a bit - the focus is on interacting, very light direction, but capturing a little portrait of your beautifully + perfectly imperfect life. They tend to include a few family portraits, but also get into the nitty gritty of real life - it’s you and your family piling into the car to get ice cream together, exploring your favourite spot, or a rainy Sunday spell reading books together.
Wild Spirit Sessions is something I’ve been slowly building the past year and will be piloting in FSJ in a private field + forest location. These are raw, beautiful sessions about connecting with nature + grounding ourselves - the resulting images are creative, grainy, and the sessions are usually done nude/implied nude (we can chat more about this and tailor it to your comfort level.) The approach to these sessions is not boudoir-based - it’s more about celebrating the self & reconnecting with the earth in a really natural way. Please feel free to get in touch for more information or examples of these sessions (shared with permission).
