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,

"You keep me safe. I'll keep you wild." - Atticus There is something so brave & romantic about eloping. I feel like it encompasses what a wedding is supposed to be; focusing on your love for each other & not getting caught up in everything else that usually comes with your big day. My love and admiration for Dan & Hadleigh grew throughout their day. My heart fluttered as they exchanged their personalized vows & had their first kiss. I couldn't help but smile behind the camera at the way they looked at one and other. Truly in love. Flowers by: Elements Florals Canmore   Helicopter: Rockies Heli Canada ...

"A beautiful heart can bring things into your life that all the money in the world couldn't obtain" - Dau Voire This quote reminds me so much of Grace. I could not imagine a more beautiful lady, both inside and out. Being Jim (my boyfriend)'s mom, she is always there for us. I was trying to think of a wee way to repay her for all she does….so I took a few flicks of her gorgeous garden. …and a few more…. then made them into postcards :) If you are interested in something similar, let me know - I would love to hear from you! Have a great weekend!! xo

There is something about Alf Alfa in bloom that I love... and these two! What a perfect evening this was! I loved how evident it was that these two were completely in love. I could tell because they breezed through the session, with love in their eyes and smiles on their faces. They have planned a magical winter wedding and I cannot wait for it! Their love is humble and grounded. Very inspiring. Thank you for allowing me to capture it.
