Soca Kitchen

I often tell my clients and prospective clients that if they are going to use sponsored posts on Facebook and Instagram, it makes sense to invest in professional photography for them. If you're spending money to put more eyes on your post, it makes sense to make that...

Pure Kitchen

As someone who has been an on again-off again vegan and vegetarian, I can hardly believe that I haven't eaten at Pure Kitchen before now. I'm SO glad I finally got there though. Such a bright, white space with a definite good vibe. I had a really hard time choosing...

Meat Press

I used to pass by Meat Press on my way to morning yoga class but at the time I was following a vegan diet so I never did stop in. Now, back to my omnivore ways, I put this Hintonburg spot high on the list for Wednesday lunches. Walking in the door I was a...

Ola Cocina Vanier

Earlier in the year I started a project on Instagram I called #WhereIAteWednesday. The project came about after I realized that for someone who works in food in Ottawa I didn't really know as much as I'd like about restaurants in Ottawa. Fortunately I found a willing...

Rome City Guide

I’m lucky enough to have been to Rome before and to have seen the great sights at the Colosseum and the Vatican. I love art and history but I hate crowds so I decided to leave those off my list for this visit and instead spend my time wandering neighbourhoods with my...

Portland City Guide

After Seattle I hopped the train down to Portland. I'd been wanting to visit Portland for some time and I'm very glad that I took the opportunity to go. My big regret in Portland was that I had many more "must visit" restaurants than I had appetite. That said, I did...

Ballard Farmer’s Market

When I travel I love to find a local farmers' market. The colours are always inspiring and there is often great signage. When I was in Seattle I spent a morning at the farmers' market in Ballard. Earlier in my trip I'd visited the iconic Pike Place Market but had...

Styled Beach Picnic

Part of a food photography and styling workshop I took in 2014 in Seattle with Aran Goyoaga, organized by Angela Ritchie's Ace Camps. It was a great weekend. Aran is a generous teacher and I loved having the opportunity to spend time with a group of really talented...
