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

Yep, fall may be my favourite season.. but I am not quite ready to give into it yet!

I am so behind on blogging you guys.  I honestly have no idea how it happened.  Some of my very most favourite photo sessions and projects have yet to make an appearance here.  That just isn’t right.. ha ha!  Time to remedy that.

This was a fun little session I did with my daughter this past spring.  We were desperately craving some sunshine, and it was still so cold and dreary outside. After a few minutes of discussion, this is what we came up with.  It definitely did the trick! ..our spring cravings were fulfilled.  Here are a few of my favourites..

I have a feeling that we will be creating a few worlds of imagination in this little studio space over the long winter months!  I should get brain storming now! hee!

What do you do when the winter months just seem too long, and spring can not come fast enough?  Another thing I like to do is fill the house with as many fresh flowers as possible!  Make the waiting a little more bearable! ha ha!

A few more spring and summer projects to blog and then I think I will be quite content moving onto all things fall!! xo

Sigh.. there is no denying that fall is my favourite time of year.  I love the colours, the coziness, the layers, love my boots and my sweaters.. and the crispness in the air.  Every year, I look forward to it and cherish it before our long winter hits.  This year though, it seems that summer has passed us by a little too quickly.

Wasn’t it just July?

Maybe we will get an extra long fall?  Um yes, that is very likely wishful thinking.  We do live in the great white north after all. ha ha!

While doing my best to bring myself around to my usual level of enthusiasm for the fall season, I decided to put together a little collage of my most favourite recent pins over on Pinterest.  Some of these scream fall.. and others are a bit more summer, very perfect for the in between season we are in.

As I took a glance at my recent pins.. this colour combo really stood out.  Coral, navy, mint and a bit of deep maroon.  That just screams cozy!  I think I need to order that blue gingham top for the studio!  I just love it to pieces. xo

Our daisies are finally in full bloom!  I have been patiently waiting for them and with all this sunshine lately, there are more and more every day.

I kept it pretty simple when planting in the back yard.. green perennials, shrubs and bushes, and plenty of daisies!  What can I say, they are just such a happy simple flower.. and easy ha ha!!  I love that the backyard is surround by bright cheerful blooms.

After cutting some blooms yesterday, I was inspired to gather some favourite items together.. thinking this will end up being translated into a styled photo shoot as well!  Loving the crisp greens and yellows with all the white!

What about you.. what flowers do you wait patiently for every year?

This wedding.

Seriously.. crossed one off of the bucket list with this one you guys!  There was nothing about this wedding that wasn’t a dream.  The location, obviously.. but this gorgeous couple and both of their families were nothing but a blessing to be able to spend the day with!

I could write words like crazy to describe this amazing day in Jasper.. but I am going to let the pictures do the talking with this one!

I am so excited.. I finally picked up a wardrobe cabinet from Ikea for my studio!

This has been a key piece of organization that was missing from this space.  Previously, I had all of my studio clothing items on a rolling clothing rack, which was ok.. but I would much rather save the rack for when I am in the process of styling a shoot, that way I can pull items out of this cabinet to showcase just when needed.. although some things just beg not to be hidden! hee!

Excuse the wrinkles in the poor dress.. must steam it!  I decorated the top of the wardrobe with some vintage props that I picked up not too long ago.  So in love with this wooden suitcase!  I love how this room is coming together.  It is the main shooting room in the studio as it has the best natural light.. which is essential.  This wardrobe is the perfect fit.  Loving it so far!

I was even lucky enough to snag the cabinet on sale during the Ikea wardrobe event.. bonus!
