Heart Flow of Shamanism Retreat – Northern Edge Algonquin // Petawawa + Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer

Heart Flow of Shamanism Retreat - Northern Edge Algonquin // Petawawa + Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer
Where do I even begin; it's been so so hard finding the right words to describe what I learnt, what I saw, what I dreamt and what I felt, over the weekend at Northern Edge Algonquin during the Heart Flow of Shamanism retreat that I had the privilege of participating in a few weekends ago in May, along with (and thanks to) my dear friend Courtney of CourtOutdoors. The [...]

Best of AUCP 2015 | Petawawa + Ottawa Wedding Photographer
Oh 2015, I don't even know where to begin with you! It was one hell of a roller coaster both personally and professionally, that's for sure. A year of growth, feeling awkward for some of it, but eventually coming out to the other side into a magical transformation of sorts that is still happening and changing even as I type this. A year full of the craziest experience[...]

KARMA SESSIONS BY AUCP // PETAWAWA + OTTAWA LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER
Karma Sessions came to fruition out of reading one of my yoga teacher training textbooks - The Bhagavad Gita - specifically the idea of selfless action. They use a specific example in the text, of a Sage sitting on the banks of the Ganges who saw a scorpion drowning in the water near him. He leaned over and picked the scorpion up, getting stung in the process. The s[...]

July blew past us - going through the photographs and our life lately I honestly can't even tell you where the days went - as we did a lot of roadtrips back home to Barrie and celebrated a couple of birthdays (Genna's 25th + Chloe's 3rd!!) and surprised some of our favourite people! We also tried to slow down a little bit once we were back home, making a point to head[...]

Life Lately - June 2015 PT 1 // Petawawa + Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer
Life lately for the start of June can be summed up in three words really: Rugby, Weddings + Summmaah! Summer has kicked off with a bang between Matt's rugby season with the Petawawa Predators taking off full swing as well as my own wedding season and travelling around Ontario photographing all kinds of amazing moments and people.

Life Lately - May 2015 PT 2 // Petawawa + Ottawa Lifestyle Photographer
A few shots of life lately from the end of May, from our stay at my parents place on the French River in Northern Ontario plus some favourite iPhone photos taken throughout the two weeks! My husband had to go on a last minute two-week exercise, which at the time, had put a huge hiccup into my travel plans for work! As usual though, everything worked out and we were a[...]

Since the launch of my new website I've yet to really get personal in my Journal here; my little corner of the Interwebs! I'm hoping to keep up with personal snippets of our life lately to allow anyone reading, to get to know me a little bit better, to see what I do in my downtime and a perfect excuse to post cute photos of my little one ;) Life lately has been a roll[...]
