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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
''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.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.
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.
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
Instead of being nervous about camping alone in the woods I was actually kind of excited. It would be my first time camping solo, and it would be an opportunity for me to inspire myself with new projects and ideas.Read More
About a month ago, I set off on my first solo trip to Nicaragua principally to work on my surf photography. It was a full ten days of getting in the water with my camera and trying different lighting techniques and composition.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
