Best of 2016

Wow! Putting this blog post together was no easy feat, but here I present to you, some of my favourite images from last year. A lot of these images are personal shots from my trips to Vancouver Island/America/England/Iceland/Scotland. 

For me personally, last year was amazing, from starting a new job, going part time so I can focus more on my own business, travelling home to celebrate a friends wedding, and taking Ryan so he could meet my family and friends. Spending lots of time with friends on Vancouver Island, making some unforgettable memories. Having visitors from home, some of whom I hadn't seen for years and of course making new life long friends! Oh and how could I forget? Last January, I got my permanent residency for Canada!!

Thanks to all clients, old and new for choosing me to document your memories, it's such a privilege to be part of your milestones. I'm so excited to see what 2017 brings!

Last week, my friend and I decided to take some photos of each other for our websites and social media. Michele of Michele Mateus photography (http://michelemateusphotography.com/) and I first met earlier this year whilst working together on an engagement shoot. We clicked right away, laughing, joking and bouncing ideas off each other.  She's a great support to have and does nothing but encourage the people around her, i'm so lucky to now call her my friend! 

So last Monday, the day after my thanksgiving dinner, feeling a little bloated after lots of over indulging I spent the first half hour in front of the camera. This is really hard for me because I hate being photographed but Michele eased me into it and I just didn't take myself too seriously. The result..I LOVE THESE PICTURES. Michele did an amazing job, definitely check out her work. 

Then I photographed Michele, she was a little more prepared than me and had a few outfit changes and accessories!! I just live in hats so I just wore mine the entire shoot. Michele never takes herself too seriously and has a great sense of humour and I hope that shows in my pictures of her..
