Last year, I had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Eeyou Istchee Baie-James in Northern Quebec, and this year I was lucky enough to spend two weeks discovering the east coast of Quebec with my husband and service dog, Alo. I don’t remember the last time my husband and I had the opportunity to go on a trip together considering he works a lot, and finally having two weeks off, we decided to pack up our little corolla, and head east.Read More
I wanted to write a story about my relationship with Alo and the process of having a service dog. I have been getting a lot of questions about it and it’s been overwhelming sometimes, so I decided to talk about my experience so far here, to share and hopefully enlighten some people about it.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.
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
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?Read More
Hold onto the little one.
Don’t spill the raindrop
Let it run, let it run!
The sun in a dew
dancing on the rose
let it roll out
a drop of the deep
on the ground.
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
Last week sure was a busy one, especially because I was setting up my POP up shop at Place Rosemere during the weekend. (It will also be going on this weekend in case you are looking to stock up on some prints, decor and such.)Read More
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.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
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.Read More
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.
Last Friday I went up to La Conception to go hike up la Montagne Verte. Only did I know that our hike was going to be cut short because on our way up, I spotted a beautiful buck grazing in the woods.Read More
I feel as if holidays are slowly becoming less celebrated. Take for example Halloween, back when I was a kid there were thousands of kids in the streets and we almost had to close the streets down because it got hectic. It was fun, we laughed, got scared and ate all the candy in the world.
