Thanksgiving weekend/hike.

Thanksgiving weekend! an opportunity to forget about school work and blame it on family and food. On Sunday my partner’s brother drove us to Kingston, we had a nice (or I should say) HUGE AND DELICIOUS dinner! Jeff and I drove back to Ottawa that same night. Sleepy from the late drive, we slept in on Monday and later went to Gatineau Park to see the changing leaves. We stopped at Cafe Palmier, which is my new favourite cafe in the Old Chelsea area.

Here are some images of the little adventure.

I am thankful for family, nature, food and good coffee, also legs that take me places and hands that help me capture moments.

And you, what are you grateful for?

Max & Rachel

I met Max and Rachel at Major Hill's Park and they were a little nervous because of the people around us! They mentioned they were shy but I didn't see it at all! They were going with the flow, playing, laughing and they were so comfortable with each other. We started by moving away from the crowds and then I hardly hard to work with these guys! We stopped at a cafe to get something to drink and then headed to the bridge before the fireworks started. 

It may seem strange to say but we didn't want to leave at the end of the session! We kept saying goodbye but no one would leave and we kept talking, so funny. I hope we keep in touch, I am excited to hear about their future plans!

 After we parted, I watched the annual summer fireworks' competition that happens in Ottawa, what a lovely evening right?!
Here are some of my favourite images, enjoy!

Love is such a beautiful thing. It moves us and the world around us, that's why I love to capture moments like this! 

Yurt in Buffalo Farm

For my partner's birthday, I decided to surprise him with a little weekend trip to a Yurt, the Buffalo farm is located in a 700 acre farm up the road from Algonquin Provincial Park N. 

I would recommend this little spot to anyone wanting to have a cool first Yurt experience - Go check them out in their  Airbnb page. 

Although we went at the end of October, we were able to go out, snowshoe, and sleep alright. Just make sure you know how to make a good fire in the stove inside. 

Here are some images from our experience!

About the writer

In this corner of my website, I want to share my love for nature and adventure. You welcome me into your life when I capture your personal moments, I also want to share part of my life with you!

To learn a little more about me visit:

 

Jasper '16

In 2016, my partner and I decided to live in Jasper, AB. I have lived in Alberta before, however, I did not have a car at the time. I think because of this I missed many opportunities to explore this beautiful province. 

After leaving our jobs in Jasper, we drove to British Columbia, stopping in places such as Tofino, Vancouver, Victoria, and others. 

The film is mostly from Jasper, I may be forever hunted for not documenting much of British Columbia! Perhaps, it is a sign to return. 

I hope you enjoy.

Also, check out my partner's list of must places to visit in Jasper.

SnowDome

I can say I tried every cafe in the little town of Jasper, and SnowDome was by far the best spot. Plus, they have computers and a laundry mat, perfect rest stop for hikers or travellers. The coffee is also amazing, you can take the word from a retired barista.

First Roll of Film

I got my film camera off Kijiji in 2015. It was $30.00 bucks, which is really cheap in case you don't know much about old-school camera prices. 

Here is the first time I shoot black and white. If you are trying to get into film, I would suggest getting a black and white roll because it is very forgiving. 

All of these were taken in Ottawa, ON. at or around the University of Ottawa campus.
