Here we are again, another year passed, and another holiday shoot for the books. I’m going to start and say this years shoot did not go as planned, we had to make some big adjustments to my original design and plans but I changed to whole design of the shoot and I think we still made something beautiful and special!
This years holiday shoot was held at Sandpiper Resort, in Harrison Mills, BC. I absolutely love this property. I have been visiting here almost my entire life, from high tea to evening events, and now the marketing company I work for represents the property, so I get to visit weekly!
I love every room in the historic Rowenas Inn, the drawing room and the living room are absolutely stunning with so many beautiful details that hold a lot of history.
For my holiday shoot, I wanted to mix some cozy couples photos with something over the top and super extra! Because why not be extra when you get the chance! Thank goodness Brooklyn is always down for my ideas when I come up a million things I want to accomplish in a shoot. I promise Brooke that will change when I live closer!
In the first image, I wanted this to be so unrealistic that it was perfect for social media, lol. Rowenas Inn has such a beautiful royal and historic feel I really wanted to play off of that and do something that fit a royal photograph. One of my friends suggested that the only thing that could have made it better is if I was in the “power” position, totally hilarious and would have been great considering I’m a pretty strong headed woman.
I have to give a huge shout out to my amazing boyfriend Justin, I can’t describe how amazing he is. He certainly isn’t a lover of photos but I know he does enjoy having them to look back on. He was such a great help to me with making this shoot the best it could be and also agreeing to try all my ideas for photos, I love you babe <3
I am already working on next years holiday shoot, I am thinking BIG, but there will be many more creative/styled shoots before then and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Thank you Brooklyn for always being so amazing to work with, and creating such stunning images for me! I am so thankful to have you as my friend and my photographer <3 A big thanks to Summer for helping me arrange shooting at Sandpiper resort and the amazing staff at the resort for making everything perfect! I love working with you all!
