The Tree, Branching Out in Saskatoon

I adore Sandra Epp, the owner of Art @ Will, previously Willow Studio.  I'd post about her show, even if she wasn't showing my work (which she is).  Sandra's "tree" inspired and themed shows of the past are huge hist and I have no doubt that the new twist will be anything short of hugely successful too.  Pop by and take a peak. 
the TREE show this Sat at Paddock.  opening show and sale: this Saturday 2-5 at 148 2nd Ave n, Saskatoon (the old Willow Studio)

Creekside Christmas

Creekside Country Home and Decor is a little gem on 29th Street West In Saskatoon (Ave P and 29th).  Summer or winter, Doris' beautiful store full of everything country white and folksy will delight BUT it's Christmas where Doris and her staff really shine.  They create a Christmas wonderland that rivals my favourite Christmas stores in Banff and Victoria.  Antiques and handmade furniture can be found at this location and at the Creekside in Delisle.  Check it out, tell Doris I said hi!

Graham Girls

Does my Arbonne business take away from my photography business?  Quite the opposite, in fact, I met the Graham girls mother at one of my first Arbonne training shows!

W. Brett Wilson: Redefining Success

Early last spring, I received an email from Brett Wilson, Canada's favourite entrepreneur and philanthropist asking me to work on a project for the marketing of his upcoming autumn book launch.  I travelled to Calgary for a full day shoot in Brett's home and the Prairie Merchant offices.  Working with a team of unparalleled excellence, we covered off  MANY different wardrobe changes, looks and locations.  Brett even went for a haircut while the rest of us broke for lunch!  Many people have asked me many questions about Brett since this shoot and I think my best recommendation to you is read his book.  (schedule of his book tour here) He's forthright, funny, fair and frankly-brilliant. At first I was going to include a list of publications in which these images have appeared but that list has become long, very long. 
Brett's new book is entitled "Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes" (a concept I can relate to) and when you get to the bottom of this post you will see a few of the "Things Mistakes Have Taught Me (Brett)" These quotes can be downloaded as wallpaper or Facebook photo covers or to share with friends.  Signed prints (by Brett, not me) are also available.
Thanks Brett for this opportunity.

Baby Kit Kat

Here's Baby Kitran and her sister Felicity!  I'm so fortunate to have met this family.  After a fun filled photo shoot, I ended up with an excellent horse back riding teacher for my daughter.  Stay tuned to the blog as I have a feature on Kyla Murch and her riding school, The Land, coming soon!

Pam and Chris got married!

Amidst a fire hall and the ruins of old airplanes, Pam and Chris said "I do"!  Thought I should get this post up before the honeymoon baby (on its way) was born!  Lots of family, shooting with my dad, a goofy set of groomsmen and a beautiful bride, made this Alberta wedding day great!
