Keep Your Hat On

When you walk into a hat store, you can’t help but try on every single one just to see how it looks. It’s just fun! Some hats fit, some don’t, some look good, others not so much. You can usually count on having some laughs and a good time, though. As in life too, we Read More →

Summer Solstice

These pictures were taken on the summer solstice and officially the first day of summer! This is a very special day for me, because this day 13 years ago my family moved to Canada from Colombia.

New Beginnings

Finally spring has made a warmer appearance, creating a perfect occasion to bring up the hemlines, bright colours and fun prints. Spring is a time of renaissance and change. It’s a time to start anew and reinvent yourself. Time to make room for the next stage in life – whatever that may be. Always embrace life Read More →

Under the Bridge Downtown

Under the bridge downtown is where we took these shots. Going off the beaten path can often take you to wonderful places, and in this case we ended up at Elbow Island Park for our first time. Even though it looks like a forest, it’s only a few minutes from downtown along the riverside. I Read More →
