Our Family Vacation – July 2016 – Ottawa Photographer
One of my goals this month has been to finish our summer vacation video. I took a filming course back in the Spring and I used this vacation as an opportunity to document it in live format. Normally I capture stills of our time but this time I wanted something more. Video really speaks to me. It brings the pictures to life and completely brings me back to that moment in time. I can almost smell the fresh lake and feel the warm air on my skin. This is what I love about video! I’m hoping to do more– meaning I NEED to do more.
This past summer we headed up to a cottage again near the Ottawa area. What made it even more special this time is that good friends of ours came and joined us overnight on Saturday night. They cooked us an amazing Sri Lankan meal– one that I’ll never forget and the night that they came happened to be our wedding anniversary. It was so nice to celebrate and fellowship with good friends. The next day we headed to their home and visited the nations capital, Ottawa. This was my first time back since Gr. 8 I believe!
All in all, it was a good vacation filled with lots of fish, Star Wars movies, some gin (okay a lot of gin!) and much needed time away! I’m already looking forward the adventures that 2017 will bring! Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom to watch the VIDEO. And if you are interested in a custom film of your family– I am now taking bookings for 2017!
