dearest someday » for the dreamers, the free spirited and the adventurous

Every now and then it is important to step outside of your comfort zone, and do something a little bit different. Don’t you think?  One evening, I had the urge to do just that.

In a whirlwind of inspiration, Laine and I were out the door and headed out to find the perfect location.


I wanted to experiment with light.  I had this vision of glitter on her face, catching bits of light.  Light from my distant headlights.  We waited and waited and waited until the sun met the horizon.. and it was magical.  It took a little bit of experimenting.. but that is part of the fun right?

I absolutely love how this little mini shoot turned out!

Hello all!  Took a bit of a break there, didn’t I? ..again.  SO excited to share this fun summer session.. it is a favourite for sure!  This is actually my second time photographing this family.  I had the pleasure of spending some time with them last fall as well.. I know, I still need to share those.  Crazy how time flies!  Those will make an appearance on here soon, promise!  Those and a lot more!

Anyhoo.. back to this adorable family!  I was so excited when they contacted me to do this summer session.. and maternity photos as well! happy for them!  Such a fun evening!



The evening was so great.. the sunlight, the glow, and of course the family!  The way she dressed them all for the session was so perfect.. those boys and those jeans!  Goodness, cute!! Then when she pulled out her dress and floral crown for her maternity shots, I think I might have jumped up and down a wee little bit. ha ha!  It was all so perfect.

If I had to sum up this evening in one word, it would be.. magical.

My muse..  love our creative fun mommy daughter dates.  Add a camera or two (now that she has her own) into the mix and a good time is guaranteed.  Love her.


I feel like I am continually apologizing for my absence here.  I honestly have no idea why my posts are getting to be fewer and fewer.  Maybe because I am always thinking I need to play catch up?  I have been updating the facebook page and instagram of course.. but the old blog seems to be getting neglected.  I will fix this my friends!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  Big news to share soon!

Another family session from last fall!

This little family was so fun.. their little guy was just loving the camera!  It was the perfect fall afternoon.. and this first image still remains one of my all time favourite photos.

Love the fall colours.  Oh boy.. and the little elbow patches on his sweater, oh my gosh.. don’t even get me started!  So cute!  Even though it is starting to really feel like summer here these past few days.. fall clothes still remain my favourite!

    Purebudget - This family is adorable!! I love all the candid moments you got to capture. So cute!ReplyCancel

Hello my friends.  It has sadly been pretty quiet here hasn’t it?  I hate that.  Time to get this straightened out, don’t you think?

I was thinking that a good way to break the ice over here was to just do a random collage post.. some things that I am loving right now.  A collection of images that just makes me want to.. do. So much goodness in these images, how can one not have the urge to get out and create and take pretty pictures?


It is finally feeling a bit like summer here.. it will begin to get nice and warm, and then cool off to a chill. We haven’t had a decent stretch of real summer weather yet though.  Part of me is ok with that, as I am not much of a lover of hot hot.  Today is beautiful though.. wishing I was outside, maybe when the kids get home we will head to the park.

All of these pretties were found on Pinterest.. but will link below where I can.  If I miss any, and you happen to know the source.. please do let me know! Hope you are having a lovely warm day wherever you are! xo
