The Morris Family | Ottawa, ON
December 25, 2015
POSTED IN: Family

With all the countless sessions I’ve had as an Ottawa family photographer this year, I’ve come to accept the fact that I can’t blog every single shoot. However; every year I photograph the Morris family, I feel I have an extra obligation to share their photos with you. Perhaps it’s because I see them as a part of my own family, or perhaps it’s because I can line up years worth of their photos and see how much they’ve grown…  or it might just be because they’re so darn adorable. Maybe I should let you decide which it is, because I don’t think that I can.

And I think they outdid themselves this year.

Enjoy 🙂

Travels | Bali, Indonesia
December 8, 2015
POSTED IN: Personal

I’ve been blessed to have lived the childhood life that I did over two decades ago.

For those of you who know me personally, you may have occasionally heard me talk about my life experiences growing up in different parts of the world. And for those of you who don’t know my story… lets just say that I’ve lived in 6 countries, and at one time, I could speak 3 different languages other than English. So it should be no surprise to hear me say that I love to travel. But as the reality of adult life sets in, these travel opportunities become harder and harder to come by. However, I realize I still yearn for those moments of self-discovery, adventure and rejuvenation.

And I finally lived those moments once again.

Last September, I flew over 25 hours to the other side of our planet and landed on the beautiful and magical island of Bali, Indonesia. It was a rare opportunity for me to completely disconnect from the world for a few days, discover new things about myself and appreciate the simplicity of the small things in life. I came back home with a full heart, countless stories and more photos than I can probably remember.

I’m glad you are here, thanks for letting me share my adventures with you 🙂

Bali is known for its exotic coffee, ‘Kopi Luwak’. It’s one of the most expensive coffee in the world. I’m not going to go into details about how it’s extracted (I’ll leave that for you to Google on your own), but I didn’t pass on the rare opportunity to try it while touring the Agro Coffee plantation with my guide:

Jatiluwih Rice Fields

Meet Sofie & Lhamo; they are from Switzerland. These two are officially the most free-spirited love birds I have ever met. I remember having lunch under a hut on the rice fields of Jatiluwih when they decided to join me and chat. There’s something about the way they approached me and how we talked openly as complete strangers that made me feel so happy.
We talked about Canada, our adventures, dreams… and love. I wish I could find the words to express how relaxed I felt with them. Asking for their photo was a no-brainer. And then they revealed to me that they were a new family!

This is only a tiny glimpse of the amazing experience I had on the ‘Island of a Thousand Temples’. I hope I can go back there one day… and for much longer next time.

One day…
