I am so so so excited for this post! I did my first styled shoot back at the beginning of June and wow did it ever exceed my expectations! Everything came together perfectly…you can read about how here.
I read “The Time Travellers Wife” a few years ago when I had just gotten out of the hospital after having Luca. I remember reading it at 3am while nursing and just loving it. The story was so romantic. The movie was almost as good as the book and I loved the actors who played Clare and Henry.
My sister Chantale Demers (the wedding designer who designed the shoot for us) and I have both wanted to put together a styled shoot for awhile now. We tossed so many ideas back and forth and it wasn’t until I was looking for a movie one night to watch with Marco that I saw my copy of the movie! I called her right away and we both talked for a good hour about ideas!
Seeing it all come together makes me so happy, and so excited. When I started doing photography it was one of my goals, was to start doing one or two styled shoots a year. Here is the first one!
