The Power of a Photo | Helen Tansey

When I was pregnant with my first child 11 years ago, a spinner of mine offered me a photo shoot with Helen Tansey as a ‘baby gift’.  Little did I know this encounter would result in me meeting a person that would become a dear friend of mine whilst capturing some of the most beautiful moments in my life.  Helen Tansey is a photographer.  She works out of a quaint little studio in Toronto, and has a warm and loving energy that makes you feel instantly at ease in her presence.  Helen is well known for head shots, pregnancy/family shoots and is hired for offsite shoots as well.  Within the last couple of years she took on a new project that really moved me.  She created a series of photo essays called Sundari Woman to chronicle the beauty of the natural aging process of women over 40.  She uses the art of photography to capture a moment that exudes true pure beauty, and makes her subjects feel special and beautiful.  In a time where women have come so far in fighting for their rights in the workplace, within politics and to be treated as equals, Helen showcases the true natural beauty that comes with aging.  I wanted our readers to meet this brilliantly talented Toronto photographer, so I invited her to share parts of her journey with all of us.

Q & A with CEDAR Juice

This feature is a favourite of mine! CEDAR Juice is a product I discovered after my hot pilates class at a Loblaws just across the road, since then I have been enjoying their products as pre and post workouts. My personal favourite at the moment is their Activated Charcoal Lemon+Aide, it's a perfect detox. I hope after taking a look at this Q&A with responses from Calvin and Vipin from CEDAR Juice that you too enjoy their yummy and energizing juices, kombuchas and spreads.

The Ultimate Way to Up Your Self-Care Routine

Between jade-rollers, salt rocks, and mediation caves, we are constantly inundated with new ways to make time for self-care but why not kick it old school, Freudian style, and go back to basics. What am I am talking about? The ultimate way to up your self-care routine, therapy.

Now, I think everyone should go to therapy; happy people, anxious people, conflicted people, all people. I’ve personally benefited from it and a number of my friends in recent years have as well. To me it’s the epitome of self-care and I love that the rest of the world is (slowly) starting to see it in the same way. 

But, finding the right therapist and knowing which type of therapy will benefit you can be challenging, which is why I invited my long time friend and Registered Psychotherapist Erica Beatson to shed some light on what she does and what to consider when looking for help.
