Alexa Fernando 🇵🇭🇨🇦  Finding beauty in the everyday Food, stories & photographs Toronto, Canada 📱#TeamPixel / #MyPixelMoment 📷 @ovb.inc @ajfernandophoto

Date night with @abhishekdekate and thought we'd go somewhere new. While I've tried @crafttoronto before (YYC represent!), I haven't been to the one here in Toronto. It's a MASSIVE space with the highest of high ceilings which immediately took us out of the city. I definitely felt like I was back in Calgary!
We also found our new spot for food specials. Hello $3 fish tacos on Tuesdays! 👋 We sat by the bar, spent a good amount people watching, drank A LOT of water, and left in awe with the lumberjack competition on TV. Who knew there was such a thing?! Always an adventure with you @abhishekdekate! Thank you for a fun evening from YYC to YYZ. 😉 NACHO BARREL NEXT TIME PLEASE! #mypixelmoment #fromonlinetooffline #findingto

As a photographer, most people think that all I do is take pictures. While it may look like I’m running from one shoot to another on my Stories, a huge part of what I do is actually spent in front of the computer. For example, a 3-hour event can take me twice as much time to cull (i.e. selecting the best images for the client) and edit.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE editing. It’s a part of my process, my brand. But sometimes it can get exhausting when you’re looking at THOUSANDS of photos (downside of continuous shutter 😅). Thanks to YouTube Music I’ve curated some of my favourite feel good songs making this part of my job much more enjoyable. .
What’s on your editing playlist? Do you have one? What songs get you hyped up? Let me know!

"Go out for a walk. It doesn’t have to be a romantic walk in the park... It doesn’t have to be a walk during which you’ll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself... That doesn’t make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be." - Albert Camus

Slowly making my way around the east end. This week's #ajfxstephwsc date day goes to @citybetty. We went for brunch and got the Uptown Latke and Benny & the Jets. They are as delicious as they look. (Trust me, our plates were wiped clean!) Thank you @citybetty for a great start to our day! Already planning to coming back to try the dinner menu (and to sit by the bar 😋).

When things didn't go as planned but it turns out something better was waiting for you. In this case, it's @chubbysjamaican. Whole jerk chicken + rice & peas + fried okra + watercress & papaya salad. Family-style for an even better experience. 🙌

"So exhausted from today but it's one of those when you're tired AF but still ready, if not excited, to take on tomorrow. It reminds me of when I used to host events (be it a workshop, instameet or a pop-up). I know I would be TKO-ed by the end of it but I would still do it over and over again.
It's been awhile since I felt that away. The adrenaline in my veins. So despite sweating buckets, running around with all of my gear, today was worth it. Why? Because I know I gave today my everything. And to that, I realize, is how I measure my own success. My happiness. It's not based on what I can accomplish in a day but on how I am able to put my heart into what I do in the everyday." - Thoughts and writing past midnight

Spending time with family reminds you how to love unconditionally. Not just towards others but also towards yourself. And from loving yourself, you learn about happiness. You learn what keeps you going.

Saw the most adorable scene right before my eyes. Usually I would take a quick snap and leave but this one.. I knew it wasn't just my moment to keep. It was a memory I'm sure this family would love to remember in time. I went up to them and asked if they wanted a family picture. "It's just too cute not to take a picture of you guys right now." 😊

I'd take fast food any day as long as I get to have moments like these. Nothing is more filling than starting your day with the people you love.

Happy Canada Day from BC! Hope you're all spending some quality time with family and friends this long weekend! ☀️🇨🇦
