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,

"We are never so vulnerable as when we love". - Sigmund Freud With all of this warm weather, we had to chase winter to a riverbed by Devon; which was totally worth it! We wandered around the paths, and got to know one and other a little better. (I am still amazed at how the connection is made between people I have never met & my little business!!) I loved how these two laughed in almost every photo, and their love for one and other always effortlessly shown through. annnnnnnd right after this she almost ate the ring!!! (oooops!!) haha!!! I am now booking 2018 couples & have just a FEW slots left for 2 ...

Jono & Sarah | Te Awa Vineyard Wedding
Love her, but leave her wild. - Atticus To simply say "what a day" would be an understatement. Gorgeous people, weather, scenery & love. Jono is one of Jim's best friends, and it has been amazing seeing him have a boy with & marry his love. Sarah's energy is contagious. The light in her eye & glimmer in her smile makes it easy to see how Jono fell so quickly for her. I had such a blast going back through these photos & reliving the day…. and what a day it was! FULL of laughter and love. I enjoyed getting to know the bridesmaids a bit better prior to the wedding, and of course knowing the grooms party made things easier taking ...

Devon & Shelby | Central Alberta Wedding Photographer
You are my happy place. What a great wedding to end this year's wedding season, and I felt like this photo & her beautiful smile sums up the day ♡ Emotions ran high as Shelby was helped into her stunning dress & revealed herself to her father. We then made our way to the church...where there was a wonderful vibe, as friends and family filled the gorgeous space in Lacombe, Alberta. We were lucky enough to be able to get a few photos at the local corn maze and Shelby's grandparents farm. The fall colours came alive for a little sunset session... A fun filled dance began, and everyone was able to relax. I was honoured to capture su ...
