This summer I have a million ideas for beautiful styled shoots, and the opportunity to make many of them come to life over the next couple of months! I am beyond excited to transform vision boards into reality with an array of talent by my side.
One of my favourite inspirations is flower farmer, Julia Rose Hoogeveen, of 'Flowers and Jules', (doesn't even have a website, that's how down to Earth this chick is). After studying floral design in Big Sur, California, Jules came home to Pemberton, BC to start her own homegrown operation. Every time I arrive at their place, her and baby Charlotte are surrounded by beauty - vases full of fresh cut flowers, organic veggies + herbs harvesting in the greenhouse, sunlight pouring through the big front window as we brew coffee and chat weddings. I never, ever, leave her house without a smile and welcomed sense of fulfillment.
So, yesterday while we were basking in the sun brainstorming...we decided to whip together an impromptu photoshoot. (I also forgot to mention that she lives in the most beautiful farmhouse EVER, and every piece of furniture is perfect. Like...annoyingly perfect.) We had so much fun putting this together, and the shots, taken by Colleen Conroy, turned out so great! The scenery in Pemberton, BC is totally swoon worthy, and so deserving of one million portrait shots. Mount Curry (beauty in the background) is a lovely mountain that creates a backdrop second to none. There's something special about that place.
Here are some of our favourite shots from the day. Looking for fun and unique bridal party ideas? Have a friend's baby shower coming up? Tea parties are the BEST! So quaint and feminine...the perfect opportunity for girls to be girls! Serve up some homemade cookies, steep some local tea, and chat. (For the more festive bunch, serve up a side of bubbles and a wicked cheese plate...mmm.)
Hope you love this as much I do,
