{E-Session} Jason & Sarah

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

a lovely fall afternoon spent with this lovely couple from Grande Prairie...hosting their June wedding in his hometown of Horsefly...I had met up already with Sarah over coffee! ~ She is the sweetest thing...full of amazing ideas for her wedding day. Jason is the usual Man's man...not loving the idea of photos. But  in the end fun was had by all:) right Jason?!! LOL!...and I got a great personal tour of the area. Excited for the man's photos are the "bar" at his childhood home.  Check out her lovely ring!~ wow!~ LOVE I can't wait to capture their wedding day. It is being hosted at Sunrise Ranch a lovely spot for weddings.

I always love when a client brings items to set a lovely scene....Miss Sarah bought a homemade blanket that meant a lot to her along with some champagne to toast their love! It was a lovely quiet scene along the shores of Horsefly lake...very fitting that the cork flew off!~

we're very excited to announce the arrival of our newest nephew...Cameron!~ he is a Watson for sure with his jet black hair set with cowlicks. The kids and I were very excited to be able to meet him before  he got too big. Still a lovely tiny little baby. There was no way he was going to sleep for his first photo shoots~ bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Congrats to Bronwyn and Cody! they are both beaming parents of this little bundle!

yes yes yes...I have lots of blog posts to update. I've made a list if that counts.  Along with my other list to do. the snow if falling. which means I will hibernate and catch up behind the computer. i really don't like to be cold. i'm very thankful for a warm home...and children that LOVE the snow and find joy in it!~ I suspect we will be sledding in the morning before the snow has a chance to melt. Yay a home day!
For those of you who haven't found the world of Pinterest...well your missing out! Especially if you love creative things. It's like having eye candy...the best of magazines etc. My favourite sections are DIY & Crafts, & Home decor...I can spend hours "pinning"...
The great thing is you can save your ideas and pin to your boards to save to look at later. I've crafted many of these ideas or it will spur some other idea....oh I love. Saves the planet and my pocketbook with way less magazines. LOVE LOVE! Check it out at www.pinterest.com if you need an invite to it let me know I'd love to add you to my obsession.
otherwise click HERE to check out my FB page and CLICK like to keep updated on my current activity...this is separate from my personal page. it includes more pictures and work updates. I'm working on lots of new projects and you will want to stay posted to my activities...or maybe NOT! LOL!
The battery on my laptop is counting down...so I must keep this short. (0:09) left.
Let it snow let is snow...happy for home days in the am!~

{create} summer projects

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

I've wanted to do something with this desk for a long while...well this was the summer to do it.  I finally found the perfect fabric to recover the seat and went from there with the desk color. I LOVE IT!~ This was a wedding gift from my folks...its was looking beat up and tired. So we spruced it up with a great new color. Directions: rough up the surface with sander...primed the surface with tinted primer. Then painted a couple of coats of a pearl finish paint...color Peacock (from Rona) We spray painted the drawer pulls with black spraypaint.
Then I recovered the seat with this amazing fabric I found in the home decor department at Fabricland in Vernon.
Then I got the local glass shop to cut a 6mm piece of glass for the top of desk to finish it off.
Another summer time find was this amazing 9 pane old window. LOVE!~ I shot my kids birthday session with this frame in mind. The window panes are 10x10"...so I had my lab mount these photos to suit this frame. I was going to hang it somewhere else...but it so suited above my desk. I'm so in love with this space. LOVE my pretty desk!~

***all photos taken on my Iphone!

Goodbye summer...

as I sit today in my office and catch up on my blog...while the snow flutters outside my window. I came across these fun photos from our summer. This sums up our favourite thing to do. Swim!~being outside feeling the warm sunshine on our skin, running through the sprinkle and being kids. We had sooo much fun on our trips to Vernon this summer. With fun times in the pool. These are taken on my girls cameras...They each have one of these great cameras. Shockproof/waterproof= fun! These are Fuji cameras. Click on link here.  Makenna has a pink one and Carrigan a green one!~
Now off to hide Grady's shorts/crocs...since its taking too much convincing these days for him to wear pants...
