Here’s a quick teaser of a photoshoot I did recently of a dancer at sunrise. Photos coming soon! 🙂
Join Photographers Without Borders on October 28th 2017 at 7pm for the premiere screening of PWB TV Season 2! Let us take you on a journey to India alongside our photographer Anne Gattilia to explore the world of Sambhali Trust, a charitable organization in India that is doing groundbreaking work to elevate women and young girls in the city of Jodhpur.
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!

Last month I met up with the wonderful Sana, a yoga practitioner who recently moved to Toronto from Kuwait to further her career as a nutritionist. She had such amazing energy and it was a pleasure working with her on this shoot. One thing that really stuck out to me was her view of Toronto. She says:
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.
The first few weeks involved a lot of learning and getting into the day-to-day routine of Treefrog life, but now that I’m more settled in, I’ll be back here soon with some more photography and Nicaragua posts! Until then, bear with me. 🙂
After realizing the lack of opportunities in the country for individuals with disabilities, Tio Antonio (“Uncle Tony”) created Cafe de las Sonrisas, along with a Hammock shop, both which only employ individuals with disabilities. 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.”
What is Toronto to you?
… a place to have fun?
… where you went to school?
… a new home?
Whether you were born in Toronto, grew up here, or just visiting, everyone experiences this city in a different way.
Situated in western Nicaragua, Granada is historically one of the most important cities in the country, both economically and politically. It has a rich colonial heritage, which is seen throughout its architecture.
