I am grateful. I am still digesting my experience from your retreat.  It totally recharged my body and mind. The trail run nourished my body and soul. Dagmar took me on a journey to find myself from where I was lost. I feel like I no longer stand on the sidelines in my life!!  You two totally fired me up! Amazingly, that fire still keeps growing inside of me.
Thank you Kelly & Dagmar!!

The day retreat that I participated in on Bowen Island far exceeded my expectations.  Kelly and Dagmar are both excellent at what they do!  They have a knack of pushing your mind and your body in the most unassuming of ways.  I came away feeling refreshed, motivated and inspired.  I would highly recommend attending one of their retreats. It could be life altering in how you view yourself and the world around you.... not to mention the stunning venue of Bowen Island!

Thank you Kelly and Dagmar for getting me all fired up!!!

Thank you for today, we genuinely feel like it was helpful and very interesting. Though it was really hard in some areas it was a fantastic day. You and Kelly did a fantastic job together. We loved the combination of exercise (even though we gave Kelly a hard time😊) and mental work and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. Meditating outside by the ocean felt amazing! I am definitely making plans in my head on what the next few weeks need to look like for me to create a new routine. Thanks for everything ladies, you are on the road to a successful business!!❤️

A Special Partner

We’ve brought on a very special partner, Angela McConnell, a talented professional photographer in Vancouver.  Angela will come along on our retreats to capture the candid moments during the day, those moments of discovery, fun, joy and courage. Each attendee will also receive a custom portrait capturing themselves at the beginning and end of the retreat. You would be amazed at the difference! 

About Angela McConnell

Angela_mcconnellMy passion is photographing contemporary portraits. I love the one on one interaction with a client and earning your trust when you are feeling a bit vulnerable - I know exactly how that feels because I've been there too! Creating beautiful images is a team effort, and I would love to work with you on a session and images you will cherish.

I understand the hesitation, the excuses, because I have always made them for myself. 

I am a kiwi girl from a provincial town on the west coast of the north island of New Zealand. I followed my dream of backpacking around Europe where I met my future husband on a tour around Europe. We moved to Australia, where I lived for 10 years and my passion for photography was reignited. We have most recently moved to Vancouver, BC and it feel so good to reconnect with nature, particularly the ocean and mountains. 

I never intended to shoot portraits - my eye was always captured by the lines and form of architecture and nature, and translating this into abstract photographs focusing on detail. My aim was create something not immediately identifiable from something completely familiar. But now I have fallen in love with portraits, getting to know my client and developing a relationship where they can be comfortable with me capturing the connection between them and the beauty that their loved ones see in them.  Learn more about Angela.
