Each year I design and create a holiday photo shoot, this is something I look forward to each year and absolutely love to do, I start brainstorming months and months in advanced. This year being finished university and having a little bit more time arable and being in the Fraser Valley full time I wanted to create A Very Sydney Christmas. Essentially I wanted to take a blank space and create my dream Christmas, with my colour schemes, decor and overall feel of the day.
I started collecting decor that I felt fit me and my dream Christmas design, used my cute little Christmas tree from my apartment last year, and make a pretty sweet hot chocolate bar. When looking for a space to shoot I found a local studio in Mission called Studio and Co. owned by two local photographers I absolutely LOVED this space and it was the perfect setting for me to design in, I can’t wait to use this space again in the future. I was so thrilled to have Warin Marie Photography do the photos, she did such a beautiful job I know I’ll cherish these forever! I have to thank Makeup By Ally for mine and my moms beautiful makeup, we loved having you come and do our makeup and feel treated for the day! Reddy Made cakes made the adorable little gingerbread houses, and just incase anyone wants to know everything i’m wearing is from H&M lol.
I have to give huge shout to my Mom for doing the floral arrangements for this shoot, she created multiple arrangement for me and they were absolutely stunning!
My plan is to keep this post short and sweet, giving you a little insight into the design of this shoot and then letting you enjoy these beautiful photos, maybe one day I will own my own home that I can create A Very Sydney Christmas in, but for now I can sure say I’m happy with these photos and memories.
Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, whatever beautiful celebration you take part in, I wish you a wonderful holiday season and lots of love from my family to yours.
