These past few weeks have been extremely stressful, so today I decided to spend the entire day outside in nature, de-stressing and getting back to what I love most: photographing nature. ☺️
Another year, another BioBlitz!
This year’s BioBlitz took place at Heber Down Conservation Area, which is located in the Lynde Creek Watershed in Whitby, Ontario.
It’s finally starting to feel like Spring, with warm weather, blooming flowers and plenty of wildlife scurrying around! I had to make the most of this beautiful Saturday and go out and explore some of my favourite places again.
The Allen Gardens in Toronto is a place I visit quite often. But it’s a place I will never get tired of. It’s my happy place.
My husband and I spent our Sunday morning by the lake, watching the sunrise. Usually at sunrise, I’m looking up at the sun and the sky. But this day, I looked down at the lake, and was mesmerized by the patterns and shimmering sparkles that the light was casting on the water. I’ve seen it many times before, but for some reason it just seemed so perfect this day.
When in nature, you’ll never see the same scene exactly as it was, ever again. And I think that’s what I love most about it! Always something new to discover.
One of my all-time favourite portrait shoots that I’ve done is a lifestyle-themed product photoshoot for Mother Erth, an ethical fashion line based in LA and Toronto.
Last summer my family and I visited a relative’s farm up in Uxbridge, Ontario. Being the animal lover that I am, seeing all the goats run around just filled me with joy! Below are some of my fave photos from the day:
