What nature taught me

In those moments of true defeat, nature always seemed to pick me up through subtle magical moments, in this case the beautiful blue hour of the morning, and the water soothingly rushing down next to me. Even tho the fridgid temperatures, I felt warm and fuzzy inside.

Bringing nature into your home

Selling prints came a little after I was diagnosed of a chronic depression in which I had to take time off work to focus on my mental health. Not having insurance because I am a struggling artist (you know what I mean hahaha!) I had to figure out a way to try and make a little bit of money to help get by.

Be your love

To love one’s self
To accept her flaws instead of thinking out why she’s helpless
Know that you are amazing
in you; you can find love
when you treat yourself better
you also treat yourself with the
love and care you deserve

Winter Magic

Down the tree lined path iced in pure white snow, sunlight reflects mystical images as we go,

magical dancing fairies gracefully gliding through the frost filled air, now free not hiding,

gentle breeze pass through bare trees creating music setting mood of calm,

truly harmonic,

Ears That Hear

Ears that hear, eyes that see,
A heart that understands,
One who sees the broken pieces,
Gently holding them in your hands.

Eyes that tear up with emotion,
Ears that hear what you can't say,
A heart that beats with feeling,
Helping pain to edge away.

Into the North

We drove 5 000km in the space of two weeks cramped in one van. It was such a rewarding experience.

For the longest time, I have had a passion to document my own country, especially my own province and a particular attraction to the northern regions.

The circle of Comfort

It’s been a little over a year now that I have been officially diagnosed with a chronic depression. It’s funny, because I thought it would be over with and that I would be able to laugh about it, however I learned that sometimes it can take a little longer than others.

From struggling with finding the right medication, to having way too many sleepless nights to count, it really has been a hard struggle.

A 48hours at Grands-Jardins

I was recently asked by la SEPAQ to pick a National Park I always wanted to go, and document the park for a couple of days. These kinds of contracts are always the funnest because you have no, or barely any strings attached when coming to create. It’s stimulating, and they want you to document the area with your own creativity.

Adventuring through Chaleur region

The first week of August I organized a media trip in New Brunswick. Instead of going down south, where everyone else goes, I decided to spend the week in what people call ''the pit stop'' of New Brunswick, Région Chaleur.

The North Collection Launch

I wanted to dive deep into the creation of an end of summer collection about some of my photography taken in the region of Eeyou Istchee Baie-James because I fell in love with the barely untouched part of our province. Every photographer and artist has their own values and motives when it comes to creation, and for me it's the love of my country and province. Every decision I take always comes down to: Am I inspiring others to discover more about Canada?

Spending time with the minies.

For a couple of years now, I occasionally drove past the barn, seeing these guys hanging out in the front paddock, and have always wanted to just find myself inside the paddock petting and cuddling these cute creatures. It wasn't until last month that France (owner of the barn) invited me, that things started to get real.

A day with Audvik

And it all started a few days ago when Sophie (CEO of Audvik) called me up to see if I was available this coming Sunday to come document and capture the authentic moments during their Audvik ambassador day. I couldn't say no, as she described the day as a full on outdoor adventure at Parc National de Saint-Bruno.

New Years in Murdochville

''So what do you want to do for New Years this year?'' was the occasional question that would be going around in the apartment this holiday season. We were kind of opting for a quiet night in until I got a message from Anne-Sophie saying we are going to Chic-Choc for five insane days with really cool friends.
