EMPOWERED Vancouver Retreat

Hosted by Lorna Jane Canada with FitApproach

September 29 - October 1, 2017

I had the amazing opportunity to follow FitApproach, and Sweatpink during their EMPOWERED Vancouver Retreat weekend earlier this year in the Fall. The workshop was held at the Lorna Jane with plenty of room for yoga, HIIT workouts, social media, and styling workshops.

It was quite an experience to be with such open minded women from different walks of life together working on themselves and helping each other. The energy, positivity, strength, and smiles of like-minded women coming together for a one weekend workshop was intoxicating. Located in the middle of historic Gastown, I don't think there could have been any better place for the activities planned. 

The goal for me as a photographer during this event was to successfully be able to document the activities were the limitations were pushed, and tested, and to capture new experiences and new successes as they happen. 


Little Black Dress Gala

October 20, 2017

I was given the opportunity to attend the Little Black Dress Gala back in October 2017 for the very first time, and I was blown away by the amount of support raised for youths and women through Help Change My City Alliance (HCMC Alliance).  

With so many artists, designers, and performers, I was only able to absorb so much. My favourite part was definitely the fashion show. 

This was also the first time really pushing my little Olympus EM-10 Mkii out in low light settings, and I am definitely loving the way it had captured the colour and movement with such ease! I'm glad I have this as my little travel companion; definitely looking to post more travel or street photos soon on this website!
