This page is where I share my blogs that are about my adventures in learning to be and being a photographer in Saskatoon. It includes blogs about my experiences in deciding what I loved to do, my boudoir clients, my roller derby photography, and some personal blogs also. The page also includes a testimonial from my first ever boudoir client and a post slider so that you can flip through some of the latest posts instead of scrolling all the day down to the bottom of the page to see them. I don’t mind writing a blog about being a photographer in Saskatoon. Because that’s what I am, I am a photographer in Saskatoon. I’m more than that, though. I also have a job as a Respiratory Therapist that I do full time. Photography is my side gig. I enjoy doing it, and I enjoy the level of learning I have had to do in order to get to where I have so far. I’m having a really hard time coming up with another bunch of words to get the word count to 300 haha. Guess I’ll just say again that I’m a Saskatoon photographer. I do boudoir photography and I do graduation photography and I do sports photography – mostly roller derby photography. I love being a boudoir photographer and grad photographer. I do not like Family photography. Not one bit. I’ve done it, and I don’t like it.
