The feeling one feels after planning something for months and to finally see it come together so beautifully, it's such a joyous one. Shanna of Details Event & Design Studio and myself planned and designed a bright and beautiful elopement with a splash of emerald green and just a tiny hint of red, which turned out more magical than we could have imagined. We created the installation piece weeks prior, along with the bouquet, and bit by bit, it all fit together like perfect pieces of a complete puzzle. I'd like to thank all the vendors listed for being a part of this with us. Along with our beautiful models, Hannah MacIsaac and Brendan Duke. Hannah wore a wedding gown I created over the last few months, accompanied by beautiful crystal earrings and shoes from Le Chateau. The dress was a huge undertaking, but it looked amazing on Hannah, so I'm happy I was crazy enough to take the project on. Nothing is impossible, and what happens when you go towards your dreams is that they actually start coming true, and holding a styled shoot at the beautiful glass green house at Wiles Lake Farm Market indeed felt like a dream coming true.

If I could place myself in the same headspace I was in three years ago. Wanting something that seemed so incredibly unattainable--I saw my end goal, but not the steps I needed to take to get there. And like most dreams, they begin as just simply that. A dream. A dream without a known direction. You find your road, only by first taking all the wrong paths, mistake after mistake; the wrong gear; the wrong aesthetic; the wrong pricing! Losing clients because you can’t deliver a consistent product… consistency is crucial!

Where I am today

What if I told you, there’s a way to skip all of that? There’s a way to jump the line and be successful without faltering?

When I came across Caroline Tran, she was like a shining light for my business, leading me, encouraging me. I went from being afraid of trying different methods, from learning artificial lighting that was not continuous, to walking out in the full sun and actually having confidence in being able to deliver beautiful images. I dread to think where I would be today without her. And she didn’t get to where she is overnight, but here is she now offering her invaluable time and expertise to help raise us up to our full potential. No college class, including photography class had ever opened me up the way that Caroline had. I can guarantee you, you’ll be left inspired and pumped to take on what you might currently be afraid of.

Where I was

That being said, skip the hurdles, skip all the wasted time and money, and the loss of clients. Invest in yourself, invest in your business by enrolling in Caroline Tran’s six week program. Currently at an incredible price until February 5th, far less than what my photography college class cost me once upon a time, and 110% more valuable.

Just look at the two maternity shots I've taken, recent one at the very top and the below of one of the first maternity shots I had ever taken. Both images are beautiful, but the above has always been where I wanted to get to, and Caroline has helped me get there, and she can help you get there too!!!

I can't wait for you guys to try it for yourselves!

Happy December,

The decorations are coming out and everything is beginning to look so beautiful and festive. It's wonderful to see all the decorated Christmas trees in the windows.

I know you guys have been asking where to print your holiday cards. Recently searching for new places to print them, I came across Basic Invite, and was straight up impressed. It is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. You can select a design and change the colour of every element, and have the card exactly how you want it. You can also order a printed sample, which no other service of its kind has allowed for before, you'll know what to expect as you'll see how it will print and feel the paper quality first before ordering a bulk order.

That’s not even the best part, if you’re like me, recipient addresses are just hand cramping to write them all out. A great chunk of my family and friends live 1800 km away so it’s a lot of writing for me. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders. What???!!! Yes!!!! You heard me right. I was sold at that alone. And if you like foil cards, they are available in gold, silver and rose gold.

Right now, they are offering 15% off with code 15FF51 on all other products

and 30% OFF ALL HOLIDAY CARDS with code: HOLI30

Prices for their holiday cards start as low as 1.07 CAD, if you're truly looking for the simplest option and don't have a fortune to spend, that's a really affordable rate, and adding 30% on that makes it .75 cents for a great quality print. I've tested so many places, but you'd really not find another place that is able to send you a sample of your order, and provide recipient address printing for free. It's pretty awesome!

Among some of their products and options you’ll find

Dinner party invite templates

Cheap holiday cards

Photos xmas cards

Look them up, check them out, and explore some wonderful options on their website @ Basic Invite. There is still time!

Big hugs and a little early Christmas cheer to you all! :)
