Monochrome Woodland Birthday – Oliver’s First

  Our sweet baby boy is one!!! We decided to throw a party for him while we were back in the Fraser Valley visiting family and friends in the Community Room at Highstreet. It’s such a wonderful space with white walls, lots of windows, lots of light and enough space for a bunch of littles…

Emoji Teen Birthday

Yes, I planned a teen birthday party for my 15 year old bro. Yes, I have a 15 year old brother. Yes, he has the best sister in the world. Okay, maybe he wouldn’t go that far, but maybe he will babysit or something. Wishful thinking? Probably. Anyways, a couple months back on my birthday, he…

Ollie’s Room

I have dreamed of having babies for a long time and when we became pregnant last winter with Ollie I spent a lot of time daydreaming, planning and prepping a nursery for our little bundle due in the fall. I didn’t know the gender of our baby until about week 19 but I wanted to…

At home with us

Gooood morning! A few days ago, Steve, Oliver, Jax and I did a mini photo shoot at home. Oliver is growing up so fast that I wanted to capture some shots at home with him before he was mobile. And of course, now, he has started crawling as I’m writing up the post. Good timing!…

Rowena’s Inn

Back in January we had the pleasure of staying at Rowena’s Inn for a night in one of their cottages.  We stayed in the Nelson cottage and loved the view of the river and golf course. The inside of the cottage had a living room area with a wood fireplace, a king bed, a spot to…

My 1st Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day was one of my favourite days, ever! It started off at midnight when our friends and myself got a text saying the Northern lights were happening. We jumped onto our porch where we could see them flickering along the mountains. We all kind of freaked out with excitement (okay, maybe just me), grabbed…

DIY Mini Bouquets for Mother’s Day. 

Flowers are a nice gift for most occasions, but it can get expensive if you have a lot of people to buy for. We hosted a brunch yesterday for some family members so I was trying to think of something pretty to make for them. I came across a few different ideas that I liked,…

Tulips and Local Love

Last Friday I had the chance to go check out Abbotsford Tulip Festival with one of my besties and our littles. It was a perfect day to grab my camera and photograph our littles (Oliver & Olivia) among the colourful flowers and wearing some of our favourite local brands. Also, Mount Cheam and Mount Baker…

Cherry Blossom styled Photoshoot

Good Morning and Happy Easter!! A few days back, I had the pleasure of photographing and styling a photoshoot I had been daydreaming of for a little while. I went for a drive to find the perfect spot and came across a few large Cherry Blossom trees in a grassed area in Garrison Crossing (Chilliwack)….

Easter Tablescape & Spring decor

Happy Easter!! This morning my Mama and I were busy getting the dinner table all ready and decorated for Easter dinner on Monday night. We added a lot of beautiful details but still kept the decor fairly simple. Lots of bunnies, eggs, golds, and natural colours this year. (See the bottom for details on where we…

Tea for Valentine’s

Our family is pretty big into celebrating each holiday or special occasion together. It usually results in my Mama (Julia) making a big, yummy meal and inviting the family over where we exchange gifts, cards and spend some quality time together. This year,  with the flu hitting our household, it looked a bit different. So,…
