Caroline is a free-lance photographer/blogger/dance event organizer based in Ottawa, Canada

While living abroad in Latin America during 2013/14, Caroline developed her photographic style documenting her time travelling from Cuba to Nicaragua. Her blog shares meaningful images and and lesser known tips for travelers and volunteers looking to experience parts of the Caribbean and Central America, in particular, Cuba, Mexico and Guatemala.

Since her return, Caroline has worked locally as a freelance photographer in Ottawa, at events, doing product and commercial shoots, as well as in lifestyle, family and portrait photography.

Outside of photography, Caroline is also passionate about dance. With a particular connection to Cuba and latin music more generally, Caroline organizes an annual week-long dance holiday, Bailando Cuba that takes place in Havana, Cuba each winter.  The event is in its third year, and with all of the changes happening in Cuba, it is the perfect time to visit!

Also known as DJ La China, Caroline began a monthly afternoon kizomba and salsa social, Bailando Ottawa. The event is popular amongst social dancers for its laid-back vibe and great music. If you are ever in the 613 area, please be sure to check out the party!  Currently scheduled for each first Saturday of the month, until 2016, from 4-9 pm at Maxwells Bistro, 340 Elgin.
