For me, photography is about capturing life's special moments.
I would love to help you capture yours.

YOWYOW in Ottawa

My husband and I attended the 1st ever YOWYOW event last night at Raw Sugar Café on Somerset Street in Chinatown. It’s described as an unconference and networking event featuring interesting people and ideas in Ottawa.

The Raw Sugar Café is such a lovely and cozy place (Read Ottawa’s Foodies review on the place). I loved their vintage decorating style and relaxed atmosphere. We had a great time meeting people from all walks of life! We enjoyed it so much that we were the last ones to leave.

It was also pretty cool to hear that one of the speakers, Ian Graham from The Code Factory mentioned Awesome Ottawa as one of his favourite grass roots organizations in the city.

I’m really looking forward to the next YOWYOW event.

Congratulations to Sophé B Poitras and Marc-André Plouffe for putting on a great event!

    I'm sorry that we never had a chance to meet Stella. I left a bit earlier, perhaps middle of the pack. It was a very interesting evening with probably the most eclectic group that I've seen in awhile. Definitely bodes well for the next one.

    • Hi, Len! There was a bit of a crowd and I was only able to talk to about half of the attendees. Hopefully we'll bump into each other at another YOWYOW gathering.
