Relive the Dress // Elgin Heritage Park Shoot Preview!

Today was so COLD...it was windy and freezing and SNOWING.  
And you know what else was today?  The Relive the Dress shoot that I organized to take place at Elgin Heritage Park!  A few participants backed out, then I got work that the hair stylist & makeup artist weren't going to show up... they backed out as well and I was starting to dread that the shoot wouldn't happen. 

Well, one of the photographers stepped up and became our impromtu hairstylist (she did a great job!) and the ladies were able to help each other out with makeup.

The day started out at my place, models arrived for hair and makeup and to get dressed.  Occassionally someone would shudder when they looked out the window and saw tiny snowflakes appearing.  A couple hours later everyone had arrived and my living room was packed full of models, photographers and a lot of dresses, props and shoes!     

By the time we arrived at Elgin Heritage Park it already started snowing... and it was clear it wasn't going to back down.  The models braved the cold anyways and we all lasted a couple hours with the occassional break running into the heritage house to warm up our hands!

Thank you to all the models who put up with the cold and helped create so many gorgeous and fabulous photos!  Also a big thanks to the photographers who all came out! (BiancaAndreaAlyssa W.Alyssa S.JacquelineShanna, Sarah, Bella, & Kristy).  Looking forward to seeing everyone's photos!  Here's just a few shots from today... more photos will come later this week!

Nicole Bridger Fashion Show // Vancouver Eco Fashion Week

Last night I attended my first fashion show!  It was the Nicole Bridger fashion show, park of the  Vancouver ECO Fashion Week held in the Salt Building in the Olympic Village.  My friend, Tonya joined me and we both were in the same boat... having never attended any fashion event or show before!

Big thanks to Rachel McHollister for getting us into the show... she helped organize and prep for the show and I can't imagine all the hard work and effort that went on behind the scenes to make it happen.  I saw Rachel running all over the place... and PS, you did an excellent job!  

Here's a few shots from the evening...

Finn // Campbell Valley Park

I photographed the most adorable chocolate lab and his "parents" this morning!  His name is Finn... and his parents wanted some photos before he started growing bigger!  We met up this morning and headed out to Campbell Valley Park to take their photos.  Finn is sure a hyper puppy... like most puppies... but we managed to get him to sit still for a few seconds here and there.

DeHaan Family // Surrey Family Session

Yesterday morning I had a family session with the DeHaan family!

It was great catching up with Kevin & Jordanna... we actually attended the same high school together and all graduated in 2001!  Their two children were adorable...and did so well for the session.  :)  

We met in the parking lot by the Barnston Island Ferry and walked around through the industrial area and train tracks.  I love the unique area and location they chose for their family photos!  Here's a few shots from the morning...

White Rock Beach // Personal

This past weekend we had the opportunity to take a walk down at White Rock Beach with some of our friends!  One of our friends, Sarah brought her new camera... so I had a partner in crime to take photos with!
