Carolily sparkles

There’s no lying that I have a bit of a soft spot for all things sparkly, so when Danielle of Carolily Finery contacted me to do a photoshoot using some of their jewellery, I was very excited!

Carolily is a mother/daughter duo made up of Danielle and her lovely mother, Donna. We met up in downtown Kelowna and did a little stroll, showing off some of their beautiful necklaces.

We were lucky enough to have three amazing women from our business community help with the modelling. Lisa from The 10 Spot,  Laura from Wink-i-Wear (which you’ll see her gorgeous frames in many of the photos from the shoot), and Sara, a mortgage broker in Kelowna. They were all so fun and easy to work with.

Here is a little taste of just a few of the photos. To see more, make sure you follow Carolily on Instagram or Facebook!

This is Laura of Wink-i-Wear with some killer frames and beauty necklace!

I’m not sure if I believe in destiny or fate, but what I do believe in, is when life is knocking you upside the head, you answer.

I also believe that what makes ‘life’ so special, are the relationships that we build within our short time here. The value we put on the people in our lives…

When Christina Jenion asked me if I’d be interested in creating a portrait for her to go along with her new brand launch, I knew this was a moment I didn’t want to pass up. Christina is an incredible florist in the Okanagan Valley. She owns her own company, Classic Creations, and every time I’ve had the opportunity to work with her, I know beauty is in the making.

In creating her new brand, she has created a perfect voice for herself on the internet. In the wedding industry,  our websites have to be a reflection of who we are as people and as artists, because the internet is such a big part of how we connect with our clients. When I see Christina’s floral creations, I see softness, I see warmth, I see a beautiful blend of unique colors and textures, and I see the time and the love she puts into what she does. Her new site is a perfect reflection of these things, and I couldn’t be more excited for her.

Even though I knew she only needed a couple of images for her website I seriously couldn’t stop shooting! Such a gorgeous girl, inside and out… I wanted to share some of my favorites from the day. If you haven’t yet seen it, go and check out her new website, Classic Creations Floral Design.
