Birthday Week Creative

Tags: , , , , ,

If you follow me on facebook you know I am a huge lover of birthdays. Give me a reason to celebrate and I will run with it. I have always celebrated Birthday Week. It is a grande tradition. Birthday week is all about being a little extra good to yourself for seven days. Each day in Birthday Week I do something a little extra special – a tea with a friend you haven’t seen, a new book, a sleep-in, your favorite meals -just little things.

For the first day of Birthday Week, last Tuesday, I decided to organize what I call “A Creative” This is where I bring a team of creative people together to create a fun shoot. It HUGE thank you to everyone involved. Everything about it felt great.

Tamara from Purely Flowers made a stunning bouquet

The wonderful Fern from Brides Closest in Nanaimo came all the way here with dresses

Crystal-Lee and James from Roots the Salon blew me away with their make-up and hair skills

The Nest Vintage Studio  set me up with the perfect props

Jamie from Just Right Events help set up the location

and local Stella & Dot representative loaned us some bling

and of course to our “up for anything” gorgeous model Rachel


I haven’t had time to go through all the images, but did pull out a few behind the scenes images – I can’t wait to share the final images!
