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

hello my friends..

This past week has been full of reflection.. lots of time spent deep within thought.  Spring is around the corner.. but I feel it is much more than just a change of season. I am feeling so many other changes as well. So many plans and visions for how I want life and living to be.. finally beginning to take shape. Not so much finally.. I don’t really mean it like that. I suppose more just finally being able to see it.. or maybe more so feel it. Either way, I am loving it.. and I am excited.

Here are a few favourite images gathered on pinterest over the past couple of weeks. Oh wilderness, just swallow me up and inspire me with your ways! much pretty….

Are you seeing all that pretty soft pink up there? ..I am not sure what is happening to this cool hued loving girl, but I smitten with these soft palest shades of blush. I think after all of these shares, proclaiming my surprised affection for the colour, I should maybe just admit that I am in love.

Oh my gosh you guys, I am feeling like I will never catch up! ha!  All of these lovely families from last fall will get blogged though, I am determined! Improved blogging habits better be in place by the time next busy season rolls around! ha ha!

This family was absolutely amazing. Seriously. I know I say that every time.  But it is true! I definitely have been blessed with the best clients!  These guys completely brought it. The had fun, they laughed and goofed off.. it was so much fun.  They even dressed the part.. and for that many of them, I was so very impressed! heee!

I’ll let the pictures do the talking..

How lucky am I, right!?  This amazing family left me with such a full heart… as they drove away in their three or four vehicles.. ha ha ha!  Yes, I was a wee bit intimidated when we all met up. lol  But it was such a great time, one that will stand out for years to come!

Some light filled and sun hazy images on this snowy blustery day. Just because.

Spring is feeling further and further away by the minute! ha ha!  Why not gather up some favourites that remind me of those glorious outdoor shoots.. that will come again soon!  Right? Can you hear me Mother Nature!?  


Now, lets go back to pretending spring is right around the corner.  Makes me feel better already.. take that winter. ha ha!

Happy Sunday my friends!! xoxo

Hello all my lovelies.

This past week has been full of more planning and getting things done.  There is going to be some fun and exciting things around the corner!  I have been working hard behind the scenes and am almost ready to share more.

Over the weekend, I found I was kind of loosing track of the direction I was wanting to go on this little refresh.. so, since I was still kind of in the planning stages.. I decided to pull out all of the things that I am currently loving in the studio.  I made a mess you guys.  I know this picture looks all clean and pretty.. I honestly should have done a pullback shot! ha ha! Anyway, the point of it was.. I thought if I had all the things that I want to use in upcoming shoots and concepts, that it might help guide me back on track.. and it did!  Inspiration immediately hit, and hours of productive work followed.

I think I found the secret.. I work better in a cluttered chaotic state. ha ha!  Or maybe it was just all the pretty.. or maybe both.  Either way, back on track and that much closer to sharing what I have been busy working on!

How about you.. what kind of tricks do you use when you find yourself in bit of a creative rut?

Until next time my friends! xo
