Oh Honey Honey

Last week, I got the amazing opportunity to learn and see something new. I photographed Santropol Roulant checking on their Apiary. They are a small Urban Beekeeping Collective who teach novice beekeepers. They meet once a week to check on their bees with an experienced apiculturalist.  The bee's are on the rooftop of Santropol Roulant on Roy which also boasts amazing views of the city.

These are my photos from the evening. Thank you guys for the amazing experience with bees and the chance to shoot something new and different.

The Queen bee is in here not sure if you can see her. She has a red dot on her head.

The Zellars Family

A few weeks ago, I met with the Zellars family. I have known Rachel for years now, since I first arrived in Montreal and I have documented her growing family throughout the years. I worked in her Daycare for the first 2 years of my time here. Rachel owns The Greens school where many of my kids shoots have taken place.  We took some shots in Rachel's fabulous garden which is currently harvesting some delicious veggies. Mama Rachel is the chef of the house and let me tell you this, she makes one hell of a chocolate cake!!

Rachel is a lover of nature and plants, you can tell by her mini tropical forest inside her home.

Meet her beautiful family; Ade, Zora and Sade.
