November – the month of “No”… no leaves, no snow (well, at least last week), no colour, no warmth. A month that most people would think is too bare and cold to do family photos… I would agree on the cooler temperature bit, but I have to admit, this was one of my favourite sessions of the season! I am so drawn to the neutral tones and textures, finding beauty in the bare! And though it was a touch cold, this family was pretty darn amazing to spend the afternoon with! A win for November!
I’m going to take some liberties today to completely and unashamedly brag about my sister! This girl has been working so hard over the past several months to begin the journey of creating and selling her beautiful artwork as a small business owner. Today, her new website was launched and I couldn’t be prouder! Her work is such an extension of who she is… it is thoughtful, it is beautiful, it shows delicate intricacies with an unexpected boldness! She is an artistic florist who shows here love of botanicals and nature through her brush. And her results are stunning.
You should go visit her website. It can be found at www.jillweston.com. It’s beautiful… her work is BEAUTIFUL!!! Consider where in your home a piece might fit (or your sister’s home, or your BFF’s or your parent’s or your workplace!) And while you’re at it, follow her on Instagram!
She will be participating at the McKenzie Towne Christmas Craft Fair on November 7th, 2015 from 10am – 5pm at the McKenzie Towne Hall… stop by, say hello, purchase a piece! She will have originals, prints and cards available… such a great gift idea for the upcoming holidays!
