Niagara Falls

Our family has been going to Great Wolf Lodge just outside Niagara Falls, Ontario every year for the past 9 years… sometimes a couple times a year. Every year after our trip we drive by the Falls but never get out of the car despite promising to do so every single time. This year was…

Camera Portraits

To say that I’ve been in a bit of a creative funk lately is an understatement. I’ve stopped using Facebook, and haven’t posted anything to Twitter or Instagram in about a month. I still view posts on Instagram and Twitter though, but haven’t engaged in a while. Not sure if it’s the weather or what,…

Tommy Thompson Park

Last weekend, I finally got to photograph a spot I’d wanted to for a long time – Tommy Thompson Park, or as it’s better known as the Leslie Street Spit.

First Day of School

Growing up, I never once remember having my photo taken on the first day of school. My parents always left that up to the pros during picture day later into the school calendar. Look on the socials the other day, and it is nothing but back to school photos. I’m not a fan of posting…
