On my own mental health healing journey, the suggestion from a dear friend to take a bath to relax and unwind seemed absolutely awful... and it was! But, it forced me to sit with myself, without distraction to battle my demons. That one bath turned into many and each one was usually enjoyed with a bath bomb, a mug of ice cream and a candle.
In my story, the bath was the tool to healing but it's certainly not the only way to find stillness in our chaotic lives. That candle flickering on the edge of the tub meant so much more to me then I had initially realized. It provided light & comfort in so much darkness.

behind the lens
You may have noticed my product photos are not your typical blank background product photo. Photography is something I absolutely adore and I go to great lengths to capture my products in a livable decor fashion or an outdoor scene.
My grandfather was an incredible photographer and artist who painted watercolors of his own photography. He loved to capture photos of beautiful scenery and wildlife, such as polar bears, to bring home and paint. My photography and love for creation is a way of honouring him.
I believe my grandfather would be proud to see me chasing sunsets, laying the ground to get the right angle, setting up an extravagant shot and spending hours editing photos. I try to make something as simple as a product photo feel magnificent. I hope you feel it when you light our candles, because it's always the little things!
