Welland River Shoreline

Since moving here 3 years ago we have decide to leave our shoreline as wild and natural as possible for the birds, bee’s butterflies and natural species to thrive. This year we have noticed a huge increase in wildlife include new species of birds such as bald eagles, cedar waxwings and a plethora of other butterflies and bees. A few simple things we have done are;

  1. Allowing the native plants and trees to flourish , not cutting them down or weeding
  2. Once the wild flowers have gone to seed we spread them along the shoreline to allow for more growth the following year
  3. Planted our perennial berry bushes along the shoreline which also attracts new wildlife

Forest Maternity Photos for Family

I’m so grateful that I was asked to snap a few shots for some of my favourite people in the world. They are soon expecting baby girl number three so we decided to have a little forest photo shoot to remember this time, here are a few of my favourites.

While taking these photos I realized how important it is to step out of my comfort zone and try something new and also to follow my creative instincts. The last photo which is one of my favourites was spontaneous and I feel that it shows my person style, subtle, incorporates nature and really uses the light of the evening. Looking forward to exploring this passion more in new environments.

Blueberry Picking

We had just enough time to fill half a container of blueberries before the storm arrived. This was a great morning activity that we did with our son and exchange student from Spain. The farm has a great deal, half a large container for $10 or a full container for $20. It took two of us about and hour to fill half. We will definitely be back again!
