Since I shared some of my favorite outfits from 2013, it got me thinking about sharing some moments from the year that I previously shared on here. So here goes. 2013, you had some cool times.
Kira shot Larkspur’s very first lookbook. We had been bouncing back and forth between ideas for a theme, when the lovely Kira came up with the idea of having a shoot inspired by Wes Anderson films passed. It was such a fun day, modelling with three of my very best friends.
I was lucky enough to be given a trip to Austin, Tx as a Christmas gift. We rang in the New Year listening to country music, drinking $2 beers and hearing people actually yell “Yeehaw!” Such a magical city, full of amazing people.
I shot photos of my best friends beautiful apartments. It was fun to play around with my camera, and also get to share how amazing my friends are. Still to this day they are two of my most popular posts.
Larkspur participated in our very first Pop-up shop in Mtl, hosted by Penny Lebo. It was such a beautiful and fun day.
Kira shot our second lookbook in Niagara Falls. The day started off pouring rain, so our original plan of heading to the Scarborough Bluffs got kiboshed. Once again, Kira saved the day and we headed to Niagara Falls, the sun came out, and it was the most spontaneous & fun photoshoot. We pulled over wherever we saw something cool and just let the road trip vibes take over.
I spent my birthday swimming (and getting sunburnt) at Elora Gorge with some beautiful pals. We finished the evening off with some beers and a bonfire at Garbage Beach. I felt so full of love and happiness that day.
Matt and I went on many camping trips in the summer. We visited the Bruce Peninsula, The Grotto, Greig’s Caves, NY State, Tobermory, Flower Pot Island, to name a few. I saw and got to hike in so many beautiful places. I realized just how much I love hiking, and don’t think I could go a summer without it from here on out. It’s my happy place.
Did my first solo pop-up shop with Larkspur at the Parkdale Flea. It was pretty stressful since it was so last minute, but totally worth it.
I was given my dream camera, Pentax K1000, as a birthday gift. I made pretty good use of it during some of my trips, and planned a couple fun photo shoots. It was so nice to finally work with analog again, digital just cannot compare.
I went to visit Farm Sanctuary, which was such an amazing experience. This place holds such a dear spot in my heart. I went on and on about it in my post on this place, so I won’t do that again (you’re welcome.)
I shot some photos at Coriander Girl, which I ended up being pretty proud of. This remains one of my favorite posts I put together this past year.
