Dancing at Sunrise | Nature Outtakes

I love portrait photography, but what I love more is photographing nature and wildlife and capturing my surroundings as they are. There’s something special about freezing a moment in time as it is.

A few weeks ago I did a dance-themed photoshoot at sunrise by the Scarborough Bluffs, and in between the shoot, I couldn’t help but photograph a bit of our surroundings! Below are my favourite shots from that morning.

Leave Nothing But Footprints, Take Nothing But Photographs.

Nothing makes me happier than being behind a camera! I love that I can freeze a moment in time and save that memory forever in a physical form. And I love that I am able to share stories in a way that resonates with other people. As the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” and I couldn’t agree more! It’s incredible how much emotion a single image can evoke in someone.

To all my fellow photographers and photography lovers, happy photography day!

You may have noticed I’ve been fairly inactive on this blog recently.

Earlier this month I was offered the social media coordinator position at Treefrog, a digital marketing and tech agency based in Newmarket, Ontario.

We met him on our second day in Granada, and were immediately inspired by both his vision and words. He said to us, “I want you to enjoy Nicaragua, but also really SEE Nicaragua,” meaning get to know the history and culture of the country, and look at it more than from just a tourist’s point of view.  He shared many words of wisdom with us during our brief visit, but what stuck with us the most was:

“Your camera is your power.”
