I know that we are all fall foliage and pumpkin spice lately (and rightly so!), but today I am doing a little throw back to a sweet Spring mini shoot I had the pleasure of styling.  What a treat it was to be a part of Nichole and Darien’s engagement session, the minute they walked in the room, you could feel the love and sweetness between them and it was magic to watch!  I was so fortunate to work alongside some really cool Toronto professionals to set up a photo session filled with treats and blooms.  We were also very lucky to have a charming and bright space to work with as the weather was a little bit on the crazy side that day…there was snow, rain, hail, wind, sunshine, then rain again….and it just kept going!  But we were nice and cozy inside!  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day, all captured by the talented Jennifer Images.

Well friends, the most colorful season of the year is here us and there is something so enchanting in the air.  As the greenery of summer turns into an array of deep red and orange hues, our souls are refreshed and the excitement of a new beginning greets us as we breathe in the cool autumn air.  So magical!

What better time to celebrate love than when nature surrounds us with such a beautiful carnival of changing colors!  If you are hosting a Fall celebration, be it a wedding or any other social soiree, be sure to let texture, warmth and richness take center stage to create a cozy atmosphere. Serve warm (maybe spiked?) apple cider as your signature drink, bring in rustic elements such as leaves and branches for centerpieces and of course, add candle light for a delicate glow.

Here are a few ideas to inspire you…

I cannot believe how quickly time flies sometimes. It wasn’t that long ago that I was welcoming the summer breeze and all the fun plans and dreams that always come along with the warmer months…and now here we are, mid-September and I must admit I am a little bit in awe at how fast this summer came and went.  However, as we transition from easy-breezy to crisp and cool weather, I feel a sense of excitement and wonder as I prepare for the new season.  It may be the habits left from my old school days, but September always feels like a time to reset and start again on any forgotten hopes and dreams and a time to plan for new adventures.  The cozy sweaters, richer foods and frothier drinks are just a cherry on top.

As I look back on summer sixteen, I feel grateful for friends old and new, days spent with loved ones, the ability to feel the sun and the blessing of welcoming a new season with open arms.  Change is good my friends.  I hope that September has been treating you well and that you continue to dream, love and always move forward with light in your eyes and joy in your hearts.  And now, I leave you with a few September things I’m looking forward to…

Relaxed and unplanned adventures
