Chickadee Road

chickadee road

This past June, I was honoured to go to the Your Story Retreat, hosted by the Be Present Retreats.

I have lots to share from that event, but I wanted to begin by sharing some of my favourite photos from the weekend, that being a portrait session I did with Liz Lamoreux and Kelly Barton.

Liz and Kelly have a beautiful new collaboration going on called Chickadee Road.  You’ve likely seen their thoughtful blog post or their very cool tattoos in photos of folks you know.

Kelly and Liz have added a beautiful new offering to the land of Chickadee Road called the Studio Sessions.  Head on over here to check it out and give them some love!

I think these photos also mean a bit more than the usual portrait session to me as over these past few years of creative online adventuring  these lovelies and I have become good friends.

The photo session was so full of giggles.  Packed full of friend love, of kindred connection and of collaboration.   These two really mesh in the way they collaborate and we can expect some really beautiful things now and ahead for Chickadee Road and for the Be Present Retreats (which Kelly helps Liz run).

There is also a Be Present Retreat coming up this fall, called Unearth with both Kelly and Liz teaching, alongside the wonderful Mindy Lacefield.  I’ve been to 6 (yes 6) Be Present Retreats and they truly are something special.  Liz draws together folks from all walks of life into a really incredible weekend of connection.  I don’t want to spill at the details as I want you to experience it for yourself, but let me tell you…its magical.  You find yourself surrounded by strangers one minute and friends the next.  The introvert in me gets super overwhelmed at really big retreats and have found myself feeling so at home at Liz’s retreats.

So, without further ado, I present to you the gorgeous, stunning and vibrant lovelies of Chickadee Road!
