‘i don’t want you in bits and pieces, i want you all, good and bad, every last atom’. -atticus finch

this studio has been a labour of love since the new year, a project that was literally formed during the course of a casual lunch, has become a dream space for my studio partner, Chelsey (talented owner of With Love and Wild) and i. both our husbands spent many evenings and weekends turning this unused back room into a bright, inspiring space. what we thought would be a relatively simple project ended up being a rather extensive renovation, and thank you truly doesn’t begin to articulate our feelings towards the two guys who made this happen for us (we love you Ben + Matt). it’s still sinking in that this beautiful space is ours.

as the studio came to completion, i excitedly sought a ‘first couple’ to host in the new space. after posting on Instagram, i reached out to Aimee (a fellow business owner + boss lady) and quickly set a date for her and her partner to come in. they arrived with the sweetest gift in hand (a handmade terrarium), and immediately Aimee + Wolfgang settled in behind the camera. it’s been a long time since i took photographs for the thrill of it, for the sole purpose of creating because it genuinely makes me happy. i used to throw on purple lipstick and old dance costumes for the perfect shot, and as grateful as i am for where photography has taken me since those years, sometimes i miss that zeal.

it feels so great to share these images, i am so blessed to have such a beautiful space to host couples and individuals alike. i have so many ideas for how to utilize this studio in the coming months, and i can’t wait to put those plans into action. for now, i am honoured to share these images of Aimee and her love Wolfgang. have an amazing weekend, friends.
