Andrea & Graham (Couples Photoshoot)

12 Dec 2014

The decision was made by this nature loving couple to do our photo shoot in the great outdoors there location suggestion was great. Webster’s Falls. We had to wait a bit for a break in the sky to get the opportunity to get some good light and once it cleared it gave us a beautiful dramatic light. I arrived a little early to scout the spots I would like to shoot and was sadned to see that the falls were closed for the season:( Another lesson learned!  The funny thing Is that if the trails were dry and we had time to find a way in, I know that Graham being.

  Up cycling old artwork Have you got a piece of art that doesn’t work with your decor? Does it have a great frame? Well don’t throw it out. Up-cycle it! I’ve taken this old painting that was on its way out the door and I’ve turned it into a beautiful/usable piece of art. Ive loved the frame and just needed to come up with an idea of how to bring it back to life. It has a cork background covered in burlap with a gold fleck in it. This piece can now blend with our decor and can be used for multiple things such as a jewellery holder, photo.

  Staging that cozy fireside atmosphere for the holidays. Whether you have a real gas or faux fireplace, Try adding some accessorize beyond stockings and garland. To create this warm inviting look. I added a basket with fresh cut logs this add’s the feeling of a real fire Ive also added a blanket for my guests to wrap up with. Also remember to draw interest with different elements allowing your eyes to scan the area instead of just focusing on the mantle. We were able to do this with our favourite christmas addition our XL nutcracker. In my antique searches I found a great pair of old skates to hang on our mirror.

Hello World

Big life changes for me in the past few months… 1. Got Married 2. Bought my Nana’s house and now its a head to Toe Reno! 3. And now, a new job… Yes, if you’ve heard the rumor, it’s true!  After a lot of contemplation I’ve decided to resign from Grand River Spa. It’s been a long time, but since the move out to my grand’s, it became clear that the drive was too long. It is hard to say goodbye  because I truly did put my heart into the spa and I have so many great memories. It is so beautiful out there…if you haven’t been, you should get.
