Whoa, I gotta go… back to school

When I emailed Tiffany to start planning for this shoot she let me know she had been thinking about some school themed photos since all three girls are starting new adventures at school this fall!  Piper heading off to kindergarten and Willow and Halle off to pre-school.  I LOVED this idea!  I have always loved all things back to school…new school supplies especially!  I also really love all of the colours that back to school props bring…pencils, books, apples and of course some sweet treats too :)

I think that just maybe these cuties love candy as much as I do!  When it was time to move from location #1 to location #2 the girls got to snack on some Nerds, I mentioned that I also loved Nerds and had some in my drawer of candy at my house after Halle heard that I had a drawer full of candy she responded with “I love you!”. Te he.  The laughs didn’t stop there, these girls were so entertaining and so full of energy and funny antics in front of my camera!  I especially loved all the hugs I got from them in between shots, I will always take a break from shooting for hugs, but you really do have to brace yourself for it when three little ladies run and you with hugs all at the same time!

We met a little bit earlier than planned when the evening brought with it some dark and gloomy looking clouds!  We did not want to get rained out!!  I’m so glad there was no rain because this session was a whole lotta FUN!  Take a look and see for yourself!  ENJOY!

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city

I love a countryside shoot but sometimes it’s a nice change of scenery to head downtown!  Kelly suggesting heading down to the waterfront for Mackenzie’s 2 year photos and I was happy to oblige!  We had fun dancing around to “Happy”, running down hills, squeezing into small spaces and that was only at location one!  Then we head to a little loading dock and had a little snack, played with bubbles and did a few chin ups ;-)

It’s so much fun when little B2 kiddos i’ve photographed from birth start to talk and really interact with me during their shoots, it makes things SO entertaining!  After the shoot Kelly sent me a little message telling me that on the ride home from the shoot Kenzie told her “Becky’s really nice”…..and that right there is one of the most important reviews after a shoot…mission accomplished!

Web Wednesday: Cara Loren

Web Wednesday copy

Pinterest is great for so any things, it helped me find my barstools, it’s great for making shopping lists and can teach you how to do some awesome hairstyles. One day this winter I was searching for a tutorial for a pretty bun(which I failed miserably at!) and I came across the blog of Cara Loren and it quickly became a bookmark on my favourites bar and a must read for me!

Screen Shot 2014-07-30 at  copy

An hour flew by and I had watched a lot of her tutorials and scrolled through so many pics of her amazingly fashionable ensembles! This website is full of hair and make up tutorials, lots of cute outfit ideas, links of where to get the looks and adorable pics of her son’s killer style!

I’m addition to checking out her blog be sure to also follow her on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook! Now head over there and see if you can master the ballerina bun!

Happy surfing!

Beachin’

There’s nothing I love more in the summer than an evening at the beach!  Sundresses, bight coloured beach pails, beach towels, sand in the toes, splashing in the water…..it all never gets old!  I love all the bright colours that summer toys bring to the beach!  One of my favourite things to do is wander the seasonal toy aisles in Wal-Mart and Superstore just dreaming of how I could incorporate all of the colour into a shoot!  Chantel and I started our initial talks about this session in February after we wrapped up Jordyn’s Birthday shoot!

“How are we going to top last summer?”
“Let’s go to the beach!”
“Perfect!”

From there I started a Pinboard to give Chantel an idea of what I had in my mind and to help her pack for the session.  She did such a great job pulling together wardrobe and props that added to much to this session!  I love working together with my clients like this to create shoots that they are excited about!

We had a GORGEOUS and hot sunny day to spend at the beach last week!  I’m sure, as always we were lots of entertainment to those around us on the beach ;)  Jordyn, Jack and Ruby were pretty excited to be at the beach and it was hard to keep them from running into the water!  Eventually we gave in and got everyone into the water!  It was so great to catch up with this family!  It’s hard to believe Jack and Ruby are three already and Jordyn is getting ready to head into grade one!  It has been such a privilege getting to photograph them all year after year, I said to them as I was leaving that I forgot I was working and it just felt like an evening at the beach with my friends :)

ENJOY!

And I’ve been waiting such a long time For today

This weekend we head to the farm to take some new pictures of Austyn!  We set up some adorable Scout & Acadia paper garland in the trees and took some pictures in front of my favourite shed.  Austyn was so interested in the paper garland it was fluttering in the wind (err, getting tangled in the wind..opps!) behind her and she loved to turn around and admire the pretty colours! So much fun colour in this shoot!  Jayci brought  purse full of clothes for the shoot and happily picked out a Splendid Littles romper for her first outfit…how perfect and cute does it look on that pink chair and against the rainbow coloured garland?  Love it!

Austyn is such a happy little girl!  Her squeals, silly faces, hand clapping!  It’s so much fun watching this little one just do what she does!  I love it when she smiles with that cuttle little scrunched up face!

ENJOY!
