Since the first minute everything shut down in March of 2020, one question has consumed my thoughts: “how long is this going to last?”
There is something so special about film photos that I can't quite put my finger on. Film evokes a feeling of nostalgia, timelessness, and realness that I feel no smartphone camera, app or filter can quite recreate. I've been curious about and intrigued by film photography for several years, but hesitated to try my hand … Continue reading Lauzon on film

One of my favourite blog posts ever is from Arielle Bair Arbushites’ old blog, The Cat Widow. A journal of grief and healing following the death of her husband. One of the most memorable posts from that collection is her reflection on the feeling of disappointment that accompanied becoming a widow at the age of … Continue reading On Disappointment
Before social distancing started six weeks ago, I had a slew of blog posts I was going to write. Parenting stuff like travelling with a baby (lol), baby gear recos, info on the sleep program we followed. Life stuff like how much I was enjoying my weekly dance and yoga classes. Mat leave stuff like … Continue reading Some socially distant musings
I recently came across a tweet which essentially berated people for taking and posting photos of themselves at weddings. The twitter user implied that she thought it was strange that a couple would go to a wedding and post a bunch of selfies of themselves without posting any pictures with the newlyweds. This wasn’t from … Continue reading Post what you want. Just be kind.
I've posted a fair amount on the 'gram about my wedding coming up on September 22, but I thought for a change I'd publish my first wedding-related blog post by reflecting on our engagement session from last year. While social media is a great way to share my favourite photos, a longer form post allows … Continue reading A countryside engagement shoot
We're nearly halfway through 2018. WHAT. Yes. It's not ok. Time moves with indecent haste. I've been reflecting on the adulting resolutions I described at the end of last year, and thought I'd do a little check in for accountability's sake. Brass tacks, they're going ok. Honestly, overall this year is the best ever and … Continue reading How are those New Year’s Resolutions going?
Well, the end of another year is drawing near, and many of us are surprised that the human race made it this far. I can't help but reflect every NYE, and after all of the natural disasters and deadly attacks this year the reflection period seems to be on steroids. I recognize I'm one of the … Continue reading Three simple ways to be a better adult in 2018
26 years after Howard Ashman's death, I, along with millions of others will watch the new live action Beauty and the Beast movie hitting theatres this weekend. I think we should all remember that the only reason why this film exists is because of his brilliance.
On May 4th, 2016, my 28th birthday, my mom had a double mastectomy to treat early stage breast cancer called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). My mom was given several treatment options but ultimately decided to go with a complete double mastectomy without reconstruction. That means having both breasts removed without any implants and a … Continue reading Of Birthdays and Boobs
Growing up, Christmas Day wasn't the most important day for me. My family did have a small artificial Christmas tree, a few decorations here and there and Christmas lights; but the majority of my memories on December 25th are calm, quiet and peaceful. I've only very recently learned that is not typical. Here's the thing. My mom was … Continue reading Blended Holidays for Blended Families
On May 5th we (my bf and I) got a new kitten. We adopted her from the Toronto Humane Society, she was part of a litter of three. She is a scrawny, squirmy little tortoise shell cat named Bowie. Yes she is named after David Bowie and she is nearly seven-months-old. I know, awesome right? Bowie … Continue reading #LittleBowieCat
