A Weekend Away

A Weekend Away - Kristie Jean

There is something about waking up and not being able to pick up your phone and find out what is happening in the world first thing. There is something about not looking in a mirror for three days. No one cares what you look like, no one is in a hurry to do anything. Wake up, slip in to a swim suit, have breakfast with …

48 Hours in Victoria

48 Hours in Victoria, BC - Kristie Jean

Okay this is going to be a bit of a long one, I took way too many photos and the title of this post is a little bit of a lie, we were on the island for more like 50 hours and only a short time was actually spent in Victoria, the rest of the time we were out in Sooke which is about an …

Wells Gray Provincial Park Adventure

Wells Gray Provincial Park is somewhere I have been a few times, in fact Melody and I went there just last summer. It is in Clearwater BC, just an hour and a half from Kamloops. Most of the time when people think of Wells Gray they think of Helmcken Falls, it is the most well known waterfall in the park though only one of the …

The Little Things Gear List

Gear list - Kristie Jean

I have mentioned before the camera gear I pack when I go out on a photo adventure but I got thinking the other day about the little things that I always make sure I have in my bag that have nothing to do with photography. There is nothing worse then being out for a hike and being cold and uncomfortable. Instead of getting to the …

Mt.Baldy

Mt.Baldy - Kristie Jean

Mt.Baldy lookout trail…now this is a hike I would gladly do again. Melody and I arrived at the trailhead about 1pm kind of wondering where the trail went because we couldn’t see it from the car. All we could see was the trail kiosk. We sat in the car for a minute not quite ready to get out and put our heavy camera backpacks on …

26 Hours In Vancouver

26 hours in Vancouver - Kristie Jean

As Melody and I hit the Coquihalla Highway on our way to 26 hours in Vancouver the buzz of excitement in the car was at an all time high. It is hard to explain the feeling when we are heading out for an adventure. There is excitement definitely but it is more than that, it’s the freedom, it’s getting to do what you love even …

Every Summer Has A Story

Every Summer Has A Story - Kristie Jean Photography

It is kind of weird feeling when you finish something you have been working on for months. I don’t know if I can quite describe the feeling of finally getting to hit that export button. There is so much excitement, a feeling of accomplishment, and maybe a twinge of sadness that you no longer have it to work on. There is relief that you can …

Othello Tunnels

I have so many photos just sitting on my computer. Not saved for any reason, not part of the summer magazine I am creating, just sitting there collecting dust.┬áIt seems like a bit of a crime to not share at least some of them so I thought I would start Melody and I’s quick trip to check out Othello Tunnels in Hope, BC. We had …

Photo Adventure Gear Guide

I am one of those weird people who loves to see what gear people pack for different situations. What lenses they use for different shoots. I have been doing a lot of hiking with my gear lately so I thought I would share what I throw in my bag. The gear I pack for a photo day definitely depends on what we are doing. Camera …

2 Broke Girls And 24 Hours

As soon as Melody decided to move and we realized we were going to be living in the same city again, we started making plans for all the fun photo adventures we were going to do. Slight hitch in the plan came when we came to terms with the fact that┬áneither of us could afford to pay for the hotels that would come with these …
