A few months ago, Willow and I attended the LEGO Imagination Tour in Ottawa. We went with my sister and her boyfriend on the Friday evening and it was a lot of fun. The entire place was set up perfectly for children, imagination and building and we made sure to […]
Shirley’s Bay, Ottawa
This is one of my favourite places to go to take in the sunset, unwind after a long day and skip rocks with Willow. We headed down there right around the golden hour and explored the trails nearby. I love our city. xo
Abandoned Ottawa : Sewage Plant
After visiting Kingston Penitentiary, my desire to photograph off-the-beaten path locations was at an all-time high. So, I found an abandoned sewage plant on Google Maps and headed out to see what it looked like. I was not disappointed.
Exploring in the Gatineau Hills
Earlier this week, I was fortunate enough to find myself behind the wheel of the 2016 Platinum Edition Ford Explorer for a one-week test drive. Given that we had an incredible, 4WD vehicle in the driveway, we decided to make the most of it and go explore. We headed out to the Gatineau […]
Our Annual Tradition: Fulton’s Sugar Bush!
Willow and I have made Fulton’s Pancake House & Sugar Bush an annual tradition and this year was no different. We headed up to the maple syrup farm this past weekend and oh my gosh, what a fun time we had! Willow LOVED her face paint, we both enjoyed our […]
Highlands in Winter
Right after I got my new camera, a Canon 70D, I headed for the South March Highlands to snap some photos and test out the new body and my new 50mm lens. It was cold but so worth getting out there — the trails were pristine and there were only […]
Sun Pillar / Light Pillar
The other night, as I left to pick my daughter up for school, I couldn’t help but notice that the sky was aglow. So, I grabbed my camera and headed outside. As I got closer to the clearing near my house, that provides a perfect view of the sunset, I […]
A Cold, Crisp Night in Downtown Ottawa and… Beavertails!
With company in town, we spent the evening wandering around downtown Ottawa. We parked at the Rideau Centre and headed first to the Byward Market. The market is a great place to walk around, even in the cold, as it’s still a bustling place filled with people, restaurants and music. […]
South March Highlands
The South March Highlands are one of the biggest reasons that I chose to live in Kanata. While a lot of my friends like to poke fun at me for living out in the ‘burbs, the fact that I have this incredible conservation area so close to my house gives […]
Visiting the Museum of Nature and… the Arctic!
Last weekend my sister and I decided to take Willow to the Museum of Nature. It had been awhile since we had gone there and they had a new exhibit on called “Arctic Voices” so we decided it was the perfect way to spend a cold winter day. Willow loves […]
