A Summer Serata…

Photographed by: Union Photographers Earlier this week, we invited our media and industry friends to help us celebrate our company rebrand and new website launch.  In true Italian fashion, we sipped vino, nibbled on delicious desserts, connected with our favorite people to enjoy la dolce vita! Our dear friends at BLD Decor and Flower Factory helped us transform our studio in Kitsalano into an Italian garden, complete with a swing suspended from the ceiling and a lovely floral creation for our mannequin which I like to call “Lady NadittudeTM” !  Dalana from the The Cake and The Giraffe created scrumptious...

Photographed by: Daniella Guzzo It’s Cherry Blossom season in Vancouver and I’m loving it!  There are trees in full bloom throughout Vancouver, and everyone is coming out to photograph them and take part in the Annual Cherry Blossom Festive, which runs March 24 – April 17.  Daniella and I have started a new tradition of shooting among the cherry blossoms and this year Daniella scouted the perfect location in Burnaby, under a canopy of what looks like pink snow – so beautiful!

Animal Instinct…

Photographed by: Daniella Guzzo Photography So this is what thirty-nine feels like, hey?  Ok…I can handle it!  I mean, I could do without some of the aches and pains in my joints, and maybe the gray hairs too, but all in all I’m feeling pretty great!  Turning forty is going to be a breeze – hahaha! (awkward laughter as I grip onto the arms of my office chair in terror ) I laugh a little when I think back to when I was in my twenties; I thought I had it all figured out back then.  I had a good...
