My daughter loves animals. Wait…sorry…let me correct myself. She is obsessed with animals. So this morning we decided to take advantage of our membership and visit the Canada Agricultural Museum (aka The Experimental Farm) as a family. The kids were super excited as this is one of their most favorite museums in Ottawa to go to. The best part about the farm I think is that the kids are actually able to touch and pet the animals. For them, at any farm, this is a deal breaker. They also love the idea that every time we go back we get to see most of the same animals (and know most of them by name). There were also a few new additions to the farm that had them pretty excited! There were a number of baby cows – each around a month old. As well as a litter of baby piglets which were a huge hit and were SUPER adorable! For me personally, pigs are my favorite. My only complaint was that I wasn’t able to reach in the pen and snuggle one. Trust me…you can ask my husband…I would have if I thought I could get away with it. LOL!
Whether you live in Ottawa or were planning a visit to Ottawa, I can’t say enough great things about the Canada Agricultural Museum if you have kids to entertain, or you just like animals yourself its well worth the trip. Memberships are super reasonable too and with one membership you gain access to not only this museum, but two other Ottawa museums as well! We are so fortunate to have such wonderful museums and family friendly places to visit in the Capital.

Wow…that is the first word that comes to mind about these two. Just wow!!!
I had so much fun with Andrea and Francois at our Couples session last Thursday evening! The rain held out just long enough for us to complete our session at Ottawa’s Ornamental Gardens and we were all very grateful!
In case it isn’t obvious enough, these two were AMAZING in front of the camera!! I could have seriously photographed them all day long. And the thing I loved most about them was the genuine love they shared, and their beautiful, raw chemistry. When they looked at each other, they meant it. When Francois reached out his hand for her, he meant it. You could actually FEEL that they meant it. It really was so beautiful to see. Having the ability to capture people’s true connections for each other is what I love most about the type of work I do. I am so grateful that Andrea and Francois contacted me to document this time in their lives. I’m secretly hoping that they will have an engagement or a wedding in the future…so that I can (hopefully!) have the pleasure of photographing them again!! 😉
