Yesterday feels like a world away.
Lalo, our hitchhiker from Mexico was so awesome with his comments driving through the Paulson summitt... He kept telling us how lucky we are. And I agreed. I pulled over for this shot at 5000ft. And Of course i stopped to throw a snow ball at him. LOL! I love meeting new people! #momanddaughter #roadtrip #kootenaybound #mountains #summit #meetnewpeople #getoutdoors #travel #adventure #kindness
Everyone meet Lalo fresh from Mexico! We found him in Rock Creek with a Nelson sign and radiating some good energy of course , so we picked him up. And well he's blended right in. He's singing along with us, loves my music playlist, and has lots of awesome stories to share. See even #mexico hears how special #nelson is ! I love meeting new people. #momanddaughter #roadtrip #kootenaybound #kootenays #mountains #music #meetnewpeople #getoutdoors #travel #adventure #kindness

Last night in van ⚑️🌸 #kootenaybound #cantwait #rosegoldhair
This turned out to be the most perfect evening for a maternity session. So much beauty everywhere you look.
I have a ton of wonderful pictures of Raine and Raine and Lucas together, but it is rare and hard to get a nice picture of me and her, so when we are out and I have my camera I usually ask Lucas to snap a nice one of the two of us. 90% of the time it ends up like this... Don't let my smile and Raines "jovial" expression fool you, she was not impressed to be getting her photo taken with me on this day...but we can pretend.
To say I'm going to miss this view is an understatement. #kootenaybound
Every weekday morning, Raine wakes up and the first thing out of her mouth is "daddy, daddy" and I have to say "no, daddy's at work". Today, Raine was ecstatic to find daddy still home when she woke up as he had worked extremely late the night before. She jumped right into his lap to help him finish his cereal and have some morning cuddles.
Today we drove back to the Kootenays for the weekend. Once we hit Christina I was surprised to see the lake still frozen mid March. Sure is beautiful though!
While home in Trail over the holidays I photographed my sister in-law @kianatingles for promo for her upcoming year end showcase at the Selkirk College Contemporary Music and Technology program. The images from that day are absolutely stunning and it's no wonder why. Not only did she get a killer image for her showcase but a fabulous gallery of images to help promote her brand and music.

Sometimes, you find yourself in the middle of no where, and sometimes, in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.
Blue eyed small town girl.
Make a statement.
Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.
She's got that icy blue stare.
Take me to your highest peak.
Don't downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny.
Bright, shiny and new.
It's only cold if you're standing still.
Through the trees.

We are leaving today to the Koots!!! #roadtripwithmylover #kootenaybound
Farewell to the North, it was a pretty sweet adventure. Hope things turn around in a positive environmentally responsible and sustainable way...all the best. Now to the South I go. #roadtrip #adventure #grateful #kootenaybound
Yesterday I flew 802km, hitchhiked 170km and drove 234km...rolled into Grande Prairie AB around 930pm, and it was pretty much mid-day like. I was exhausted, and as things worked out, my biological cousin Sean was home from working in the rigs and was nice enough to put me up for the night. ...and I'm off again. #roadtrip #kootenaybound #adventure #family #recharged #grateful #ontheroadagain
After five long months sitting up North..."Old Blue" started right up! #roadtrip #northernbc #adventure #kootenaybound #beautifulbc
