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
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
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.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
Hautes-Gorges is a spectacular park in Charlevoix region, and it was the first time of the year that they open during the winter months, offering a bunch of fun activities and incredible hikes to enjoy winter at its fullest.Read More
dawn time leaves steamy breath on the window ~ a bison snortingRead 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
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,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.
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
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.Read More
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.Read More
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
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.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.
