Climbing a mountain

Standing at the base of a mountain you are about to climb is humbling. Once you get going, it feels like the top keeps getting higher and out of reach. The forest gets denser and you loose track of the summit. You can only trust that the trail is really leading you somewhere. You might feel lost, but you keep going.

There might be raspberries to reward your effort. 
And all of a sudden, things open up and you see the summit. Right there. In front of you. You made it. Through mud and thorns, tears and sweat. You trusted. And humility meets grace.

A lovely day

Morning at the farmers' market. A pedalo outing. Tasting sea-buckthorn for the first time. More blueberry picking. A shared meal with people we love and delicious local food. A shooting star.

Gilles + Hélène

My dad and Hélène got married in a beautiful hotel in Old Montreal last weekend. It was a day filled with love, joy and celebration. I was their official photographer and spent the week working on the photos to create an album for them. Here is a sneak peek!

Daily inspirations

   :: A needle felted creation Mara made entirely by herself for her papa. ::

:: Mathilde and I made sirens ::
 :: The girls wanted me to show them some ballet moves (you might not know that I have been a dancer for over 10 years...) ::
The girls are really enjoying the story of Minli (also available in English: Where the mountain meets the moon) and we have made some drawings and paintings to illustrate it.

:: Watercolor inspired by Monique. ::
