One of my FAVOURITE festivals Ottawa has to offer is the Tulip fest. I just love the sea of various colours.  And it’s a gamble every year as to when to go and see the tulips.  It has been too hot, too wet, too cold, too windy…and with a few extremely hot days, they can fry up pretty quick.  That is why when we were expecting several hot, sunny days in a row I had better get my butt down there.  Even if I didn’t bring the kids with me.  Which they yelled at me for.  But it was actually nice to crawl around in the dirt without the complaining to move on to the next bunch of flowers.  I was however not the ONLY person there.  For the middle of the day during the week, it was CRAZY CROWDED!!  But that didn’t matter…I managed to capture some of my favourite photos of the tulips to this date. I kind of like the Canada 150 tulip…if you couldn’t tell.

One of my favourite events in Ottawa is the Tulip Festival.  Most years it is difficult to time it out to be able to see the best display of tulips.  But this year was not so bad. I just LOVE the sea of colours!  And of course, I have some to share with you. Smile

Being in Ottawa – one of my FAVOURITE events is the Tulip Festival.  I just love to see the seas of colours and different varieties from year to year.  This year I was surprised to find so many pretty two-toned flowers.  And because it was a nice day, I think EVERYONE decided to visit the festival the same time we did.  I have never SEEN it so busy!!  But regardless, we had a good time.  The kids loved looking at the paintings.  Which I feel like that might be new.  I don’t know that I’ve seen them before.  Smile

Everyone always thinks as a photographer, you must take such BEAUTIFUL photos of your kids all the time.  Well, this is my gal’s “portrait face”.

I HOPE!!  Very happy to be enjoying some actual Spring-like weather.  I feel as though we have been spoiled the last few years, and now we are unable to handle a normal Spring!  But I’ll take the sunshine!  I was even able to actually get outdoors for a portrait session a few weeks ago; and can’t wait to do more.

One of my favourite things about living in Ottawa is getting to see all the Tulips.  But somehow I just never time it right.  Either I’m too early and they haven’t hardly begun to bloom – or they’re fried in our unusual warm Spring weather.  But this year I almost had it right.  Almost!  Enough for me to capture some nice colourful photos anyways. Smile
