I'm not sure if it was the thrill of hiding behind a massive rock feeling like a spy.. or the absolute joy that came about me as the proposal unfolded - - but I think I have a new favourite thing: PROPOSALS!!! 💍🎊⠀ ⠀ The entire moment was just so stinkin cute - - Farzad was so nervous that Shirin would know because it was her dream to be proposed to on this very bridge! ⠀ ⠀ My favourite parts:⠀ ⠀ 1. Meeting Farzad for our walk-through and getting to know their story and the why behind choosing this bridge!🌉⠀ ⠀ 2. Waiting in the cold behind a huge rock, casually jumping up and down to warm up, with a massive lens on my camera, while onlookers + people in the building next door stared at me questioning! 📷🕶⠀ ⠀ 3. Farzad messaging me right before getting there to say he was nervous!! 😅⠀ ⠀ 4. Seeing the entire thing unfold behind my camera, running around catching all the moments, tearing up behind my lens with them both!!! 🥰⠀ ⠀ 5. THE HAPPINESS IN THIS ENTIRE MOMENT! 🥰⠀ ⠀ What an HONOUR to be a part of such a special moment in a couples life 🥰❤️⠀ ⠀ If you or someone you know are going to propose, let's chat about how I can help capture that special moment in your life too!! 💌⠀

Do you listen to podcasts? Do you believe in the power of timing?⠀ ⠀ I was getting ready one morning -- I had an appointment for Tessa's celiac rash later that afternoon so I decided to get ready + start my day off with a shower. As my sweet friend @payal_bhakta has coached me to do - I swiped over the Oprah SuperSoul Conversations podcast list and said okay universe, what do I need to hear today...? and let my finger land. 👆⠀ ⠀ ✨BAM - Dr. Shefali Tsabary: Conscious Parenting Can Change The World. ⠀ ⠀ 🤯🥰Woah! Just WOAH!⠀ ⠀ I go, okay - - let's do this. I turn on my speaker and I listen as I shower. It tells me everything I need to hear. Everything! In that very moment the turmoil in mine and Tessa's life is something I can not describe to you guys. I was having sleepless nights trying to figure out how to soothe my daughters energy and emotions... and at a peak of my stress, there it came. The answer.. all in ONE podcast. ⠀ ⠀ This wasn't just for me - every single person needs to hear what Dr. Shefali has to say about our children, let alone - ourselves. ⠀ ⠀ That same evening our holistic doctor tells us that Tessa's emotions have a significant impact on her health. Between the podcast in my head and Andrea our Holistic Dr., I needed to truly stop and listen to the essence of WHO Tessa is. Not who I want her to be or all the things I strive to give her that 'i wish i had'. Not in how I believe I should discipline her, but in how I SHE NEEDS to be nurtured. Who Tessa is and what Tessa needs are two things I can't force. I have always known that I need to allow my child to be who she is and how she is. I need to water HER roots and allow her to blossom into the best version of Tessa there is! But how? That's what I needed the podcast for.. ⠀ ⠀ My little Tessa is kind, she is patient and loving, she is caring and forgiving. She is just the happiest little ray of sunshine in my life and you know, that podcast really did change my relationship with her and I believe that every single person - not only parents - needs to hear this podcast!⠀ ⠀ Is there a podcast that REALLY stood out to you!? I'd love if you could share your favourites with me!
Do you know @allyssahelm ? ⠀ ⠀ 🤩I absolutely love doing branding sessions with amazingly talented vendors in the industry! ⠀ ⠀ 🖌️Allyssa is one of the most talented hair and make up artists I have worked with.

Her ability to give you the most natural sunkissed☀️ glow is my absolute favourite! ⠀ ⠀ 📸I was so stoked when she asked me to curate images for her brand with her and can't wait for to capture her and all of her team in our upcoming branding shoot!⠀ ⠀ 💃🏻I'd love to elevate your brand with pretty images too -- if you've been thinking about this, let's chat💭!! ⠀ ⠀

2 Days people!! 2 days.. ⠀ ⠀ ...that's what it's taken me to recuperate from a huge shoot!⠀ ⠀ If you saw the very limited posts I made this week, you'd have seen that I planned and executed an amazing styled shoot alongside Claudia of @blissful_memoriesandevents with a team of some of the most fabulous vendors in the industry!⠀ ⠀ @mandycalligraphy⠀ @sdeweddings⠀ @lenasfloraldesigns⠀ @allyssahelm⠀ @felichiabridal⠀ @anicejewellery⠀ @cre8ive_studios⠀ @skalassweetpastries⠀ @bakinguptreble⠀ @thistlesandlavender⠀ @theeasternbazaar⠀ @maisonsimons⠀ @brandenleehyman⠀ @savdimuccio⠀ @royalvenetian⠀ ⠀ Thanks to all these fabulous and talented people for really creating such a fun atmosphere and a seriously great day!! Together, we created something so beautiful and I am so excited to work on this gallery!!!! ⠀ ⠀ This time I decided I would listen to my body and rest right after -- it's self love month right?! Well, I'm so glad that I did - today I am really thanking myself to listening to my body yesterday and though I am still feeling a bit blah - - I know I would have felt worse if I didn't stop and take a breather! ⠀ ⠀ I need some better ideas - this time I really focused on getting water in my system during the shoot because last time I suffered from major dehydration.. I need to make it a point to fill my bottle and keep it attached to my camera bag!⠀ ⠀ What do you to to manage your exhaustion when theres a long day on your feet ahead? ⠀ ⠀
