Because You’re Beautiful Contest Winner!

Earlier this Spring, we were inspired by Dove’s newest video as part of their campaign for real beauty. It showed how hard it is for women to see, express and embrace their beauty; we saw an opportunity to give at least one woman the chance to celebrate her beauty!

We ran a contest and asked women to tell us what makes them feel beautiful. We got some fantastic responses from, “the wind blown hair, and rosy cheeks from playing outside with my little girl” to “putting on makeup, a dress and heels.”

By random draw, we chose Kirston to win a makeup application and lesson and a photo shoot from the gilded lily, and we were so excited to be able to give this to such a deserving person! Kirston is a busy mom (with another one on the way in less than a month!) and  she runs a home daycare, so she doesn’t get a whole lot of time to focus just on herself.

Here are some of our favourite photos from the day!

Congratulations Kirston!

 


Spring Family Photos!

DSC_6944I was so excited when Dana asked me to take some family photos to help celebrate her Grandmother’s birthday! We were luck to have a beautiful Spring day at Weldon Park in Arva.  Perfect for climbing trees (which it turns out this whole family loves to do!) An entire family photo in a tree was definitely a first for me (scroll down to see what I mean!)

Here are some of my favourites from the day!

Enjoy!
