I have been really bad at updating this. Not always having internet when I think to is usually the reason. When traveling to these communities I never know what to expect. Internet and phone are never guaranteed.

This run has been Northern Manitoba and Ontario. When I am done here in Red Sucker Lake it's back to Northern Ontario for the rest of the month. I've been trying to take more photos when the weather co-operates. Winter is quickly disappearing in the north, the snow and ice is melting into some serious mud. Might have to invest in some rubber boots, not sure how long my winter boots are going to cut it!

The next time I have a better internet connection I will get some pictures uploaded. Excited about exploring Northwestern Ontario in the coming month and Northern Canada in the future!

A little late in posting this, better late than never I suppose. It's been a crazy 2 weeks since leaving on Jan 31st. I wish I had the opportunity to take more personal photo's, hasn't been possible yet with my schedule. Hoping to make up for that over the next few weeks. Have been on a few ice roads, definitely been a little nerve racking at times but totally worth it. In the meantime, here are a few of the photos I have taken.

St. Theresa Point, Manitoba had some beautiful sunrises

First Time Round

Since I just recently decided on this blog I thought it appropriate to put my first run out into one post. These photos were taken between mid September and end of November 2015. In 2 1/2 months I traveled over 20,000 kms. Makes sense as to why I was so tired when I got home! Started in Iqaluit, Nunavut in mid Sept 2015.

Was pretty amazing! Even got to see a polar bear, didn't get a photo of that unfortunately.

The next couple weeks as I traveled around I didn't take many personal photos. Was either sleeping or working. There were a few times I even forgot the name of the town I was in. I'll sum up the trip with the few photos I did get and use this blog as motivation for my next trip starting in 2 weeks on the 31st.

Tales of A Travelling Photographer


View Fall/Winter 2015 on LotusFlower's travel map.

At 32 years old, when this adventure started, I had come to a cross roads. Do I continue at my then current job, which I dreaded waking up for every single morning or do I take a chance at financial uncertainty and the unknown...

I chose the unknown, traveling in Northern Canada by myself taking school and family portraits twice a year. Each time I leave it's for about 12 weeks. Having an awesome support team from my husband and 2 girls has helped greatly.

This blog is a way for my family and friends to follow along and anyone else who wants to see some of Canada's remote beauty.
