behind the scenes look for a boho photo shoot

These are some behind the scenes photos of a boho beach shoot that we did at my parents cottage 2 hours north of Toronto. What a beautiful day. The clouds were cooperating and made for a breath taking backdrop. Our models were stunning. Michelle of Magnolia studios and I styled the ladies (after much searching in clothing stores and not finding ANYTHING that fit our theme) from our OWN closets. It was super fun to style the shoot and be at the beach for a day with all this beautiful team. See below for some behind the scenes from back in June.  

This shoot was one of the funnest ones I have done all summer! Who wouldn't love a day at the beach hanging out with this great gang?

Hope you are enjoying the last few warm days. I'm still dreaming of the cottage and trying to plan a heat vacation for in the new year. Have a lovely Thursday.

Wandering Wednesday

This past summer has been such a growing experience for my company Hattitude jewellery. I'm honoured to have been apart of so many couples weddings in a small but glamourous way. From the bride's best friends wearing some jewels or the bride herself adorned in Hattitude, thank you to all my wonderful supporters. This summer has been really amazing. 

Since fall has hit I've pulled out my army green jacket and leopard print scarf and started a new blog series with a friend in the wedding industry. Meet Erika from Bueno Market. She is a sweet graphic and web designer and makes the most pretty and delicate stationary for special occasions! Check out her shop by clicking here. 
Our Wandering Wednesdays will happen twice a month as we explore the beautiful city we both moved to recently. It's also a great way for the blogosphere to get to know my business again and how myself and the biz has grown over the last 6 months since Tristan and I decided to move to Toronto, Ontario. 
This Wandering Wednesday we did some brainstorming at Capital Espresso in Parkdale, the west end of the city.
See you next week!

bringing you some sunflowers

Ahh here is to beautiful summer days, playing in the fields and singing with your loved one. Here's to summer suns, beautiful rays, and living life. 

This post is a beautiful photos magically captured and shot by Samantha Hurley photographer.  Sam and I worked on this styled creative shoot last summer in my neighbours farm field Davis Feed and Farm Supply. Special thanks to Carly for being our art director for the day and to the Davis for letting us use their sun flower field!

What does a behind the scenes wedding photo shoot look like?

A farm, baby piglets, a pony and a baby lamb?! Who wouldn't want to participate in a creative wedding shoot involving those amazing animals and a beautiful apple blossoms orchard. I was asked to participate with an awesome group of vendors a few weeks ago on Steckle Heritage Farm for a stylized wedding shoot.

We had the whole nine yards, twin flower girls, a pregnant bridesmaids, a beautiful bride and groom and even a little ring bearer. The weather was suppose to rain, but we were so blessed and the weather held out for us as the bride stood in amongst the orchard blossoms and the horse cooperated (almost) with our bride, while the littlest black baby lamb cuddled his way into the arms of the bride.

I am so excited to see the final photos as they are sure to be stunning. You might be asking what does a behind the scenes wedding editorial shoot look like? Below are some sneak peeks from our adventures that day. Here's a list of the vendors involved and their sites.
