Five books to help inspire you

If you know me well, you know that I absolutely love reading. I always have a new book in hand, and when I don’t, I eagerly wait next to my mailbox for my new book arrival just as I did this morning. I got super excited when I saw that little special key in the mail box to open the 1B compartment to find my Indigo box with my new books ready for the summer.

Camping at Jacques-Cartier National park

Last Friday was the first time I went camping with Alo. We rented a Huttopia tent at Parc National Jacques-Cartier (SEPAQ) for a weekend adventure. I am usually always alone during outdoor adventures and this was a time where I could flip the page of loneliness and be able to have a partner be with me during my adventures. It was pouring rain, but that did not stop us from enjoying the amazing trails that the park has to offer. Located only about 15 minutes from Quebec city, Jacques-Cartier is probably one of my favorite parks because of the beauty, the fauna and the history.

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.

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

Counting down 2018 best moments.

It’s that time of year when we start to think about all the amazing things that happened throughout the last 12 months as we prepare for the new year to arrive. Many of us are excited to start fresh, others will have trouble letting go and starting a new chapter.

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.

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.

Transition season

The transition between winter and spring can be long sometimes. The weather shifts from cold to warm, from warm to cold and we don't know how to dress or what to do. Some days we are wearing nothing but a hoodie, feeling thankful for the warmer days ahead, and then before you know it, you are wearing your -30 coat dreading the weather.

Having gone astray or missed the way.

I am currently sitting in dirt, exhausted and only 5 km shy from arriving at the end of my long hike.
A part of me is dreading to get back on my feet and continuing the way, and the other part of me is taking in the ocean salty air and feeling more alive than ever.

A little longer than the speed of light

A friend recently asked me about how I found my brand image and photography style.

That question seems to always pop up once in a while in my photography circle and it's a somewhat difficult question to answer because everyone has different views on art, branding and working as an entrepreneur.

Seriously good times outside

''Let's go canoeing next weekend!''

I was starting to regret that idea Sunday morning when I started my car in -16 degrees weather.

Yes, winter is officially here, those cold Quebec days have just begun, and with the insomnia from the night before, going to Tremblant to go canoeing seemed like those dumb drunk ideas people come up with.
