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.Read More
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
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.
Some might say holiday season is right around the corner, but for me it’s already started. I love Christmas for the snow, the lights and the holiday spirit. Studies have shown that putting up your decorations in November makes you happier and so I have already started to bring out the lights. There’s something so comforting about hanging out with a warm fire, cozy pajamas, listening to holiday movies.Read More
What is the Brainfreeze fundraiser? Well… December 1st we are organizing a polar dip in Montreal, where we will all go jump in the river together to celebrate mental illness.

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.Read More
My experience during the Into the North production was insane. Just getting back from the adventure, and my head is still trying to wrap around what happened throughout the 2 weeks. I learned a lot about the Cree culture, and how it's important to preserve the communities and inspire them to push towards tourism to help improve the region. I learned the importance of community, and to constantly push myself out of the comfort zone. There were times when the bugs were so bad I wanted to cry, and moments that were just to powerful it was a challenge to hold back tears.Read More
Dear Deer, I love you. the nice cute pretty creature, as gift of Nature. You own wide appealing eyes cast soft glance of my sweet heart.Read More
She is the lovely lake
and I the dingy boat
cork-strewn upon her surface,
moving in her eddies unnoticed
rocked by every movement
sinking so easily beneath her notice.
It all started months ago, when I was going through a down moment in life where no contracts were coming in, and I was struggling very hard on mental health. I decided to focus my attention towards re branding myself because of two things:Read More
Being in the water is something that is so important to me. Spending my childhood in Port Elgin, I would spend every minute in the lake pretending to be a dolphin or a mermaid. I would force (and still kind of) everyone to come swim with me for hours, or until that person got tired.Read More
I've been quiet for the past few days since my return to the city. Not only via social media, but in my day to day mind. I guess we all deal from the trip blues differently and this time I am just re playing every single memory over and over.Read More
Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary is a non-profit organization based in Cochrane Alberta who gives a second home for these beautiful animals, Wolfdogs. Not only is it one of the biggest sanctuaries in Canada, but it is also recognized for educational tours and successful adoption programs to help give some of the dogs a second chance with a family.Read More
I remember when I was a kid I used to spend my whole summers up here. Spend long days at the beach, have a seriously dark tan and end the day with colorful campfires as my dad claimed he was a wizard. (I learned a few years later that he put copper in the fire to make it look colorful.)Read More
A part of me was relieved from being able to do this full time, and to have a little more time to focus on my work and myself. I was literally working over 90 hours combining 3 jobs at once, and so leaving my two day jobs was the choice I made.Read More
Photography is a tough industry to break into.
From finding your own style and path, to competing with other photographers it can be easy to fall into that vicious stressful circle.Read More
Getting out of my comfort zone has definitely been a resolution that has been following me for many years now.
I mean like why would someone ever want to get out of that round cozy bubble to get scared, do something different and not as comfortable?Read More
I can't believe 2016 is coming to an end, I feel like it was just yesterday when I was planning my 2016 goals.
It's a friendly reminder that time flies wayyyy too fast and that we need to dive deep in the moment and live every moment like if it was your last.Read More
My alarm went off this morning at 6am for me to get up, pack up my camera bag, grab the fiance and dog to head up north for a sunrise hike.
I contemplated in my bed looking at the ceiling as my eyes drifted shut about going out or not. My bed seemed way too cozy and it was still so dark out.
Last week marked officially two years of graduating from my photography college. I can honestly not believe it has already been two years since I have finished school. Out there in the world working hard in crushing my all time goal in being a photographer.Read More
