May 24 Getaway {A Personal Post}

My husband and I escaped for a romantic getaway up north in the Halliburton Highlands. This was a much needed time away where we could just relax and unwind.

We stayed at the amasing Sir Sam’s Inn & WaterSpa.

The food was incredible and the views were breathtaking. I can’t wait until we can return there again. I highly recommend this place. It has a resort feel, and the staff are so friendly and easy going. The WaterSpa was so nice and relaxing.

We took a day trip to the Halliburton Forest & Wildlife Reserve where I was sooo lucky to see wolves. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last week Kitchener was blasted with another snow storm. This winter is truly turning out to be a real Canadian Winter, with low temperatures, strong winds, and LOTS of snow.
I am not one who loves winter. I much prefer the warm, sunny weather, tank tops, flip flops and all the outdoor activities that Summer brings.
The only thing I like about Winter is how beautiful it can be. So I bundled up one morning, and went to one of my favourite outdoor shooting locations, I walked through the high snow to get to a cleared path in a forest. By the time I was finished I was soaked! I think it was worth it, but my boots warmed up to the fireplace for the rest of the day.

{Fall 2012}

Fall is my favourite season of the year. It has so many beautiful warm colours. I love the cool crisp air, and the falling leaves. This season gives me so much to look forward to with the yummy coffee drinks, cozy warm sweaters, delicious pumpkin pie, thanksgiving feasts, Halloween & my birthday! I just canโ€™t get enough. This is my favourite season to go on those quite hikes to take breathtaking photos.

I am very excited to make Apple crumble pie tomorrow with Martin’s Family Fruit Farm apples! I can’t wait for their orchard to be open to the public to pick your own apples!

The leaves are falling…just in time for fall portraits today! It will be a fun day playing in the leaves.

{Mexico 2012}

Over the past few years I have visited Mexico 3 times! In each of those trips I have had the opportunity to take some beautiful photos. These trips have been very memorable to me, the last one being the most special trip in my life. I married my best friend in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

Some highlights from this trip would include visiting their zoo Xcaret, and an adventure park Xplor. My sisters threw a surprize bachlor/bachlorette party for my husband and I before the wedding which was quite fun. They came out with maracas and sombreros for everyone.

The morning after our wedding my husband and I received room service with really yummy food! After our breakfast we had a romantic massage which was just amasing!
We went shopping in the afternoon and while we were shopping we visited an animal sanctuary they have there and played with the baby jaguars. That evening we had a romantic dinner on the beach. Our food & waiter was incredible!

This trip had to be the best trip of my life! I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

{Niagara Falls}

My fiance and I decided to go to Niagara Falls for Valentines Day. Our day started off well, we got off work early to beat the traffic. We finished packing and doing our errands (which included picking up wedding cake to taste). We were off to the falls when we got into a car accident on the highway ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It was a bummer, but everyone was ok. After our tow truck ride home, we decided to still go to Niagara Falls. We jumped in my fiance truck and left again. This time making it there safely. When we were checking into our hotel at The Embassy, they offered us a presidential suite! Of course we took that. Our room had a great view of both the falls, and had wrap around windows! It was spectacular. We went out to dinner to the Keg and ate some yummy steak followed by the wedding cake for dessert.

The next day was quite foggy & snowy so I couldn’t get some great pictures of the falls from our room. After breakfast we headed to The Bird Kingdom and here are some of my favourites from there. The birds were modeling for me that day. They must have lots of practice with photographers!
