Often times it is months and months before I am allowed to post images because they need to be published in a magazine (or two) beforehand, so I have many beautiful photos saved on my computer, collecting dust, waiting for their release from captivity. But, here we are! The Beaumont Sisters, shot back in the summer by Gerald has now been published in Off The Rails (along with some other mags) as their cover story.

Behind The Scenes / Three Little Honey Bees

If you follow me on instagram, then you probably already know I styled another editorial with Gerald last weekend. This shoot was slightly reminiscent of the first shoot I ever did with Gerald, The Anderson Sisters, and I really cannot wait until we can release the photos, it was a truly wonderful shoot. The day was spent at High Park with Gerald working his magic, the beautiful Annya art directing, Holly Kurmis of Hot Makeup making the gals look even more stunning with hair and makeup, myself styling some gems and of course the three honey-haired beauties, Mila (Peggi Lepage), Lauren (Spot 6) and M.K. (Anita Norris Models).

Normally when I style shoots I tend to use a lot of vintage that is either from my personal wardrobe or from my shop, but this time around I wanted to feature some independent designers and shops. I had pieces from Samantha Pleet, The Aspen Tree Vintage, Fortnight Lingerie, She and Reverie, Heart of Gold Designs and of course my personal stuff. I think the mix of vintage and new looked awesome together, and I especially love how the matchy-ish yellow and white outfits turned out.

Styling / Mode Laboratory

3A few months back I was given some pieces from Mode Laboratory’s SS ’15 collection to shoot, and since their pieces have a whimsical, surreal feel to them, I thought Gerald would be the perfect photographer to capture them in the best possible light. I wanted to share a few of the final images with you, so here we are!

Larkspur Got a Facelift

BEFORElarkspur revised 1by: Olivia Mew

AFTERlarkspurlogoeditby: Annya Karina

If you’re on this site, then you’ve already noticed that Larkspur got a bit of a facelift yesterday (unless this is your first time on the blog…then I’m telling you now, it got a face lift). Above you can see the old logo, and below is my new logo and header (obviously). As much as I loved my old one by super talented, Olivia Mew (thank you again x 1 million Olivia), it just didn’t feel like me anymore and didn’t really suit what this space has become. I wanted something that felt more girly (and pink), and well, that made sense with the name Larskpur…say, like a larkspur flower. I commissioned my friend Annya, amazing illustrator and designer of all things adorable, to make this idea in my little ol’ head a reality. It’s better than I could have ever imagined and when she sent me the final I was exploding with excitement. What do you guys think? I think it’s pretty darn perfect.

Behind The Scenes / Winter Whimsy

DSC_1250On Saturday I made my way over to Brantford, ON to style and work on another photoshoot with Gerald, Annya and our model Emma. About 1 month ago I was given some pieces from Mode Laboratory’s SS 2015 collection and was waiting for the perfect time to use them. While the pieces are indeed Spring/Summer I thought they worked splendidly with our wintery photoshoot. There is something so magical about winter landscapes and a model adorned in white and pastel pieces. Mode Laboratory’s pieces are whimsical in and of themselves and I think they were a match made in heaven for the work that Gerald produces. I’m uncertain when I’ll be able to show you the final images, but for now, here are a few behind the scene photos I took during the shoot.
