books and worms

on Sunday, January 31, 2010

Hey! just a quick Sunday's update. Well I haven't had very much time for my blog lately. And feel that's not going to change because now I have to start working on my collection for that student's fashion design contest (Moe P.A.R.K) Good news is that I got into final;) I have to create 5-10 looks for the 20th March.. oh that's going to be crazy... sewing 24/7.
Ok anyway, yesterday I visited the flea market with Ash. Again I bought some clothes for spring and summer.. oh I'm a horrible shopper but I really want spring to come quicker.
And I've always loved that classical trench coat + Doc Martens look. Well my trench (it's also from the flea market) isn't a Burberry and boots aren't the original Doc Martens but still.. At the moment I have only two crappy photos of it but maybe later..

Arjan is from Edmontoronto

And he's a big fan of the Oil Leafs. Probably the only one:
To make things even more confusing, he's into football:
Well, mommy is from Toronto and daddy is from Edmonton. We'll have to call Houston for this one
I'm not sure how you call a bath like this, but I definitely want one:
Back to the beauty sleep:
We wish you the all that's good in life!

Shocking news! It's not the stork! That's how babies come to this world:
Mommy and daddy are not alone like in November anymore. So much love to go around:
The whole photo session was done using only natural light! Watch and cry, strobists!
Daddy's tattoo is still under construction and when ready it's gonna be a symbol for Arassay and mommy:
Bye, bye now!

I See Beautiful People - Weddings 2009

on Tuesday, January 19, 2010

It was only a year ago, when I was let go from Sears Portrait Studio. I didn't do anything wrong - not that I know of, anyways -  but I was hired just for the Holiday Season and the number of photo sessions went down abruptly in January. So I started to send resumes all over the place again, but nothing happened. Let's just say the future didn't look extremely friendly at that point...
But here we are, one year and many photo sessions and weddings later... I want to thank every single one of you for trusting me with your memories and for allowing me to tell you your amazing story. It's been a beautiful year , with beautiful people, as you can see in the awesome slideshow above! Thank you so much for giving me a chance!

Ashna & Pinto - Engagement Party

on Sunday, January 17, 2010

Ashna and Pinto are not only my first couple from Fiji, but they are the first people from Fiji I've ever met.
Ashna's mom took care of the decorations:
Ashna's family escorts her to the stage:
Engagement Ceremony by Pandit (priest) Bal Ram:

Their left hands are much heavier now:
Both families feed the couple sweets. I still don't know what is this about, but I hope to find out soon. Update: I found out about the sweets! Apparently, the couple has low blood sugar... Kidding! The real reason is that the new beginning in their lives has to be sweet!
Isn't that sweet?!
Speeches and performances:

The most unusual portrait session took place. It was very short and it happened right on the stage, in front of everybody:
All the kids under 8 received a gift from Ashna and Pinto and of course, they felt like playing after that:
The food at the Mirage Hall was extra special. A specialist was brought in by Ashna's family

The toast:
And the first dance:
If this was only the engagement party, imagine how the wedding is going to look like in September! Congratulations!

One more great thirft score! Something about that blouse reminds Miu Miu S/S 2010 collection. Those black spots look like little swallows, don't they? :D Tuuli transformed my blouse into her Miu Miu collage. It fits in great!

/I'm wearing: blouse - thirft store, pants - Lindex, belt - thirft store/

I'm planning to take part of one fashion design contest for students (Moe PARK 2010) so I'm probably going to be quite busy with that. But I'll try to make more posts next week.

And that scrolled zipper cuff is available - here
