Where can I get a professional photo of my pet?
Nine (9) years ago Marc and I met. What better way to celebrate than to get a FAMILY PORTRAIT?
Moka is a walking client of mine and his parents are ....
Since the water level is so low right now,
the rocky terrain near the Champlain bridge is exposed. Very unique place with circles in the stoney ground carved by the currents.
With the background set the photo shoot began....we had so much fun. Our girls, Maggie and Jasmine, had a blast running and exploring. Marc Decary, the photographer, was wonderful as he posed us and clicked away on his camera.

Grand Opening was August 25, 2014
Ottawa Citizen NewsPaper published August 25, 2014:
Ottawa Community News.com:
"Tails and tongues were wagging on the morning of Aug. 25, as residents and their four-legged friends gathered to open Ottawa’s newest – and biggest – off leash dog run. Located in Hampton Park, near Island Park Drive and the Queensway, the 9,000-square-metre, fenced-in dog run is located on National Capital Commission land that is leased and maintained by the city.
Though the two projects are mutually beneficial, but exclusive in terms of development, the pathway was built from dedicated city infrastructure funds, while the dog run was built using cash-in-lieu of parkland funds collected and distributed by the office of Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs.
For local dog owners – who converged on the new run – the opening was the recognition of a community need. The lack of off-leash areas in the west end, especially those that contained rambunctious pooches behind a fence, was a constant concern of residents.
Kitchissipe Times July 11, 2014:
"Jennifer and Dan McLaurin of Hilson Avenue, are original members of the HP Dog group, a group of neighbours who have been walking their dogs together for the better part of a decade. They say the NCC designated certain parks to be off-leash 15 years ago, but Hampton Park was not one of them. “HP Dog lobbied the NCC for more than 10 years to allow dogs to run free,
inviting [the NCC] to walk in the park, showing them the pathways created by dog walkers through the forest,” says Jennifer."
