A Little Adventure | in the NWT

“The very basic core of a (wo)man’s living spirit is (her) passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” – Christopher McCandless

What an amazing few weeks. We have been looking forward to this trip for almost a year now, it is crazy that it has now come and gone…. but what an unbelievable trip it was. I have heard Meg & Bailey (of Ram Head Outfitters) talk of their area for years now & although I have seen photos, they never really did the area justice. The open country, steep hills, and changing weather made for an eventful hunt. The day Jim got his Caribou we experienced sun, rain, snow & hail! Ellie came along with us for the hike & she was great company. It is unreal what a nose & sense of direction she has.

We then were picked up and headed to Ram Head’s base camp. We spend our days learning from the Simpson family & touring around a bit. We cannot thank them enough for putting us up & teaching us SO much!

Here are a few flicks from the adventure.

This was one of 3 wolf puppies along the Canol Road. So bloody cute! I can see why people want to live with the wolves! (haha, actually not really…. ) While we were staying at the base camp, wolf howls and yelps put us to sleep a few nights. They were hauntingly beautiful!

Just a couple pretty spots along the way on the Canol Road 🙂

We were lucky enough to get SO close to this Caribou herd on the top of a mountain. Such amazing animals, we sat quietly, as they circled around us. Ellie was vibrating with excitement and after looking through the photos I am too!

 The dusting of snow made for some crisp mornings & cool photos!

We headed back down the Canol Road with excitement for what we had experienced and the road ahead in the Yukon. Stay tuned for more photos of our adventures there!

Warmly,

"Let someone love you just the way you are - as flawed as you might be, as unnatractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room." - the things we say I was super nervous for this session... not because of the couple, but because it was mostly shot indoors & that is definitely not my forte. It was so nice to be able to take the session slow & have such an understandi ...

Stay With Me | McGlynn Family
When I first booked this family session, I thought nothing of it. I had taken photos for them previously, and loved it. They were a young vibrant, beautiful family. I knew Dale had been fighting cancer, and they had just welcomed a baby boy into the world. It is an honour to be asked to take photos at the best of times & I always try my best to capture my clients, but this was a bit different. Not only was it a huge undertaking, I had to go about it in a different manner. I was not trying to capture my client's best sides, in the best possible light, with an amazing background. Rather, I was capturing the raw emotion of a family losing a ...
