Ciel de Lit

The style posts I put up on here are usually frantically shot in the space of 5-10 minutes while I’m on my way to school or running errands. There isn’t usually the time or the strong desire to plan a conceptual shoot, so I didn’t really know what I was missing until I collaborated with my beautiful friend Ainsley (who is not only a food blogger, student and model, but a photographer as well) on an interior shoot with some loose Brigitte Bardot inspirations.
Getting the chance to take some time and really play around with different angles, outfits and backgrounds was so much fun and such a refreshing change from the usual rushed flurry of snaps!
This is just a little pre-weekend peek for you – I’m so excited to show you the rest of the pics sometime next week!
Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend. x To Vogue or Bust

    Ahhhh, I can't wait to see what you guys came up with! This shot looks so pretty. I like taking the time to plan actual shoots, but sometimes it is difficult with our crazy schedule. It's all about fitting it in where you can.

    Wow that photo is beautiful! Can't wait to see the rest of the post. I wish this outfit was feasible outdoors, but it's so dreary (as usual in Vancouver). You're quite photogenic yourself! You've got a classic beauty that you subtly accentuate so well with your makeup.
