Long Weekend

I love long weekends - seriously, who doesn't? It's always a special treat to have that one extra day to catch up on everything. For me, I get the time to run errands and catch up on editing (boring, I know), but I also had time to relax & have a cup of tea; basically de-stress a little bit.

So I hope you guys had a chance to just relax and have fun! Now if only every weekend was a long weekend...*sigh*

Happy Victoria Day :)

Amanda & Sarah Featherband Lifestyle

Okay, I've gotten some inquiries about who Amanda & Sarah are. To make a long story short - they are not a couple, haha! A couple of best friends maybe :D

And now that they've seen their photos, I can blog for everyone else to see!

So Amanda is this crazy creative girl who bakes cupcakes and makes these BEAUTIFUL headbands. I was approached to photograph some of her headpieces; after seeing them, I was completely inspired for her shoot!

She also wanted to bring in her best friend, Sarah, to be an extra model. Okay, how blessed am I to have 2 gorgeous girls to photograph? I tell you, they make my job so easy sometimes.

This shoot was a collaboration for sure: 2 photographers, 2 models/stylists, 1 assistant/stylist and beautiful weather was what it took for this amazing shoot to come together! Can you believe all the shoes & clothes belong to these two? JEALOUS.

I definitely wanted to showcase the headpieces and how they can be worn. Dressed up, dressed down, they just make the perfect accessory to any outfit!

Oh, and if you're wondering how to purchase some of these pieces, just head over to featherbands. She's also open to commissions, so if you have an idea for something more custom, don't be shy to ask!

Thank you girls for bringing your creativity to the table. I was completely inspired; you two remind me of why I love photography so much :)

Amanda: I'm absolutely going to commission you for more headpieces! I'm loving the ones I have!

We'll get together soon!! Much love.

Old School

So I'm home tonight nursing a cold *sigh*. In an attempt to make myself not think of my horribly congested nose and chest, my brother showed me this link to the most greatest game ever - old school!!! Hahaha, you know you're a game nerd when...

If only I had a Spread Gun to blast away these sick germs; it would solve alllll my problems. Tylenol? Cold FX? Dimetapp? Nope. A Spread Gun.

A Spring Dilemma

There are things about spring that I look forward to all year. I love the pit-pat of spring rain and the smell of fresh grass. I like to feel the coolness of morning and watch the sun disappear in the evenings. When it's sunny, it can be marvelous! Pair it off with a slight breeze = heaven. Armed with a hot cup of tea and my laptop, I'm set to go.

But lately, Spring's been a real pain in my side! I mean, we've been having horrible fake-outs with rain forecasts - rain? sunny. rain? sunny. Coupled with torrential winds...argh! And c'mon, seriously, we had snow this weekend?

With summer quickly approaching and lots of shoots on the go, I'm *praying* for better weather! In the meantime, I'll be glued to the weather network and my hot cup of tea.

P.S. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the Mommies out there :) Hope you had a great one!

I've been a huge fan of WongFuProductions for a long time now; I'm sure some of you might have received links to "Yellow Fever" and "Poser!" from me in the past. What can I say, they make good stuff :P

But their recent video by Wesley Chan is breath-taking. Each frame could be a photo, and it's so wonderfully composed. The concept is about a relationship of love and loss, of longing and waiting; feelings that everyone in their life has probably felt at least once before. The interesting part is that these emotions are expressed through 5 everyday objects.

Watching videos like "When Five Fell" inspire and challenge me to go and view the world from a different perspective, from another angle.

I hope it does the same for you.

How time flies when you're busy! With a blink of an eye, it's already May. I swear there's never enough time to do everything you want; I can't believe we're already 5 months into the year.

Sorry for being away for so long, but I promise I'll have lots to share when I get a chance to blog all the cool happenings from these past few weeks. With shooting, assisting, meetings and editing, I have to remind myself just to breathe. But it's all good!!

So please bear with me :)

Much love.
