I had the pleasure of doing another shoot today, which happened to be styled this time by the fabulous Leanne and shot of our friend Jenn Caravan. LOVED it (and I’m also on a I wish I had red hair tangent now too) so thanks again to both girls ❤
I’ve been having the best time with all the photo work I’ve had the opportunity to do lately, and I was definitely flattered when Nancy contacted me and asked was I able to do her convocation photos. We actually graduated high school together, and it’s crazy to hear of friends graduating university already! I’m soo ready, but I still have another year to get through. Soon!
SO that being said, the biggest of congratulations to Nancy on her Bachelor of Arts (with Honours of course!) and the best of luck in the future : )
I’ve been so busy with photos lately, in the past two weeks I’ve gotten to do two engagement sessions, a convocation session, and also my first smash the cake which was definitely a success! We also got the chance to do some night photos for May 2-4, and the stars were amazing. I find that it looks like their hanging off the trees.
After all of those photos and a good few BBQ’s (and food comas) later, it was an awesome long weekend for sure. Hope everyone else enjoyed the break!
This was by far my favourite shot I took in St. John’s on our trip a few weeks ago. I actually don’t know the couple but I just so happened to be walking past when I saw them there taking the picture of the icebergs that floated into Quidi Vidi. I love their steadiness, and call me a sap but I hope I’ll still have someone to run around with me when I’m grey! Of course, I’ll be holding a camera too ; )
So just a few weeks ago Dru and I got to head out to Port Rexton for the weekend, and seeing as how I definitely wasn’t missing the opportunity to go I actually ended up working all night and after getting off at 4am, went home to shower and pack the car and we headed out by 6. Sleep when your dead, right?
In short, Port Rexton is amazing. If you ever get the chance to go through, you’ve definitely got to check out The Fishers Loft Inn (it was the owners of the Loft and their family who were awesome enough to put us up for the weekend), and the whole place including the new conference centre they’ve expanded to add is gorgeous to say the least. They’ve even began a partnership with the gallery I work in at Grenfell to include artwork from students in throughout the rooms & buildings that visitors are free to buy if they like too. It’s HUGE to see that such a place isn’t just looking to support the tourism industry, but local artists as well.
The photos above are from Port Rexton and the surrounding towns including Bonaventure, Bonavista, Cape Bonavista, Elliston, and so on. There was so much to check out you’d definitely need a few days to see it and appreciate it!
I could go on and on easily, but to put it simply the whole weekend was a very “cheesecake for breakfast” kind of deal. That is if you like cheesecake of course. If you don’t, theres something wrong with you though. It was unreal, and I really hope to go through again this summer and check it out again soon!
I haven’t really gotten to use the video function on my camera, so lately I’ve been messing with it and I managed to grab a pretty cute video of my little cousin and Pop on his 70th birthday that I figured I’d share! The 5D takes such gorgeous video, it’s too bad that the upload quality had to be brought down a fair bit for Flickr to take it but that’s all I could do. I’m still happy with it, so check it out!
Here’s another shot I took of Addy too, my baby girl’s getting so big!
Much love, Port Rexton & St. John’s posts to come soon!
