past the golden hour

SHEIN Dress - 3I wanted to try an after Golden Hour photo shoot. The evenings are getting shorter, and I had never successfully done one before. While the lighting can be tricky, the shots don’t always come out clear. Even with a tripod. I also move around a lot when having my picture taken, so that certainly doesn’t help when the camera is already having difficulty focusing. 

SHEIN Dress - 1

I will definitely need to experiment more with the editing tools in my Lightroom program. Until then, these were the results.

Enjoy your last day in November, all!

what i bought

Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 2.51.44 PMNow that summer is technically winding down, my favourite season is just around the corner! Sweet, sweet fall. With its short dresses, long leggings, cute jackets, boho scarves, and leather boots. It’s time to put your sense of style on display, rather than your bikini body. Helloooo, cooler weather and fashion!

ThreadSence recently had an amazing deal where if you were to spend $150, you would receive $50 dollars off. I took them up on that offer, and ended up purchasing three dresses for the price of two!

Here are my latest buys:

words on leaving

Jack Kerouac

Geoffrey and I will be out of commission for a few days! We were going to take a vacation, but have turned it into a stay-cation instead. We’re celebrating my birthday a little early this year.

See you on Thursday!

caitlin, graham + little ones

The Hills 02 The Hills 03The Hills 06As part of my sister’s birthday gift, I had offered to photograph her ever-expanding family. Over the years, I have often captured them in groups of two, three, or four, but rarely have I been able to get all six in one photo.

The Hills 08 The Hills 11The Hills 16The Hills 19She was more than happy to accept her gift, and so one beautiful day in October we spent an hour in her backyard sitting, jumping, running, sitting some more, laughing, and most importantly, shooting. Just because photographing four small children isn’t difficult enough, we decided to add their two little dogs in some of the pictures.

The Hills 14 The Hills 24 The Hills 25Almost every photo turned out perfectly. I guess my job was made that much easier since I had such a beautiful family to work with.

The Hills 27The Hills 32Have a good Remembrance Day. I hope that you’re spending it with loved ones.

in september.

Leaf.jpgIs anyone else on the same page with me when I say that each month just seems to fly by? As I predicted in August, September was a very hectic month for me. Let’s recap what exactly happened:

PTPI revealed to you guys that I was starting up my own vintage, handmade, and clothing store. With only a few days from the grand opening, I am still hurriedly trying to get last minute details together.

1.jpgThis month I introduced you to one new, one recycled, and one recipe from a lovely guest blogger. The theme this month was apparently sweet treats, but would you really expect anything else during the end of a long, hot summer?

11.jpgWe went on a small road trip where I visited my first antique mall. I bought many amazing vintage items, most of which are now available in my store. We also took Holly and Truman along with us, and made it a proper family vacation. :-)

DSC_0667I reviewed yet another dream cabin of mine, and showed you my inspiration for our mudroom and living room.

10.jpgI finally revealed the progress of The Little Barn, which admittedly was long overdue. It’s by far my favourite (and only) house we’ve ever built.

tom-hardy-with-pup-on-new-film-animal-rescue-1I reviewed a hit song and offered another version of it, an incredibly good movie starring Tom Hardy, and most recently, this film.

4.jpgI discussed what it was really like living on an acreage, and then scheduled a photo shoot with our pet family in the countryside.

9.jpgWe also had a flower-inspired shoot here.

5.jpgLast, but not least, this was my latest, and one of my cutest, DIY posts.

1.jpgSee you in October!
