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

Have you ever read the children’s book This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers?

It is simply awesome.  We are so in love with it.  One evening, not long after the teepee came in the mail.. I had a whirlwind moment of inspiration, and this was the result.  A creative photo session based on one of our most favourite books ever!

It all came together rather quickly.. we ran around gathering props and we were out the door thirty minutes later.  A quick stop at Starbucks and we were off location scouting.  It truly was an amazing night!  One of my favourite shoots of the entire summer!

Such great memories!

    Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell - Your photos are simply amazing! Lovely…and what a fun idea to recreate the book. I’ve look at that book in the store a few times, but maybe now I’ll have to buy it.ReplyCancel

    Cherona - Beautiful pictures as always. I love how you involve your family in impromptu photo sessions. Are they always willing and eager to play along? I want to try that sometime with my children but I’m not sure they’d be as excited about it as I would. :)ReplyCancel

    Kellie - I love you were able to turn a shot of well-loved shoes into a beautiful glimpse of summer.

    Where did you find the teepee? This might be on our Christmas list.ReplyCancel

    Pamela - Love this entire shoot! You captured it so well! Jennifer can you please provide the tepees source? Thank you! Awesome work!ReplyCancel

I have been having a bit of fun experimenting with throwback thursday on my dearest someday facebook page over the past few weeks.  I thought it might be fun to bring it over here too!

..and all at once, summer collapsed into fall.

Love that.  So true.. that is how it was here, all at once.. hello fall.  You are my favourite.

    noomiy - My fav season! :) Maybe that’s because I am November Girl.. Anyway. Lovely picture! :)

Oh gosh.. not many words are needed for this post!  xo

This is how I will always remember our visit to San Diego.  Seeing the kids as they experience the vastness of the ocean.  Watching Laine in the waves.. getting braver and going in further and further, falling in love.  Then seeing Harley chase the seagulls.. over and over and over again.

Yes.. this is how our trip will forever be in my memories. xoxo

This shoot was seriously a dream come true!

The lighting was incredible, the little girl so very adorable.. and the pony, oh gosh.. such a gentle creature! It was a pleasure to spend the evening with this pair.. it couldn’t have gotten any better!  So much fun!

..if you want to see more.. you can pop over to the dearest someday facebook page and see a full album. 

I was so honoured when Larissa of Besotted Vintage asked me to take photos of her darling little girl.  She sure knows how to style the perfect photo shoot!

So many blog posts to catch up on! hee!

How about a little country sweetness today?  

This shoot seriously made me giddy.  Several times I had to stop myself from completely making a fool of myself while jumping up and down.. I was just so excited! hee!  The setting was so gorgeous, and the weather.. even though it chilled to the bone… the hazy mist and overcast skies gave us the most excellent lighting!  Ohhh.. and don’t even get me started on the stunning model and the glorious wardrobe and styling!  ..seriously, giddy!

Here are a few of my favourites..

Thank you so much Brittany for doing such an amazing job as model.. a natural for sure!  Also, I am so very grateful to be given the opportunity to photograph this styled shoot for the incredible Besotted Vintage.. Larissa did an amazing job with this incredible wardrobe and styling!  Always a treat to work together! was such an amazing experience! 

..hope everyone is having a great summer! xoxo
