 I snuck this photo of Cory from outside the window at his work.  He's hard at it late this evening, like most nights of the week.  

He amazes me in many ways (I don't tell him enough), mostly with his confidence that everything is going to work out with this HUGE gamble we've taken on with the lumberyard.  I am so grateful to have him to calm me down on almost a daily basis and remind me that everything is going to be OK.  I shouldn't be so hard on him at times, he's doing a great job at everything and holding it all together for our family.  I'm thankful for all he does for us!

Our little Husky is making big improvements this year in hockey.  The main thing is he is really enjoying the game and being with all his team mates!

I chaperoned the Grade 2's on a field trip to the Estevan Art Gallery today.  The series of paintings on this wall are by one of my childhood art teachers, Linda Gudmundson.

Tonight we had another editorial shoot for Obviously Chic!  Our theme was Glitz & Glam and we had a blast capturing styles for upcoming holiday promos.  

We had some newcomers to our shoot tonight, Landon (my new photography assistant), Brogan (Jess's new girl) and my sister Amber to style hair...the team is becoming pretty amazing and everyone brings their own specialities.  

I love looking at these behind the scenes photos because it's a memory of the great times we have together each time we have a shoot...not only do we challenge ourselves to create, but it's a way of looking back on how far we've come!

Stopped in at the EFC Hot Chocolate Bar as we walked around town for the annual Kick-Off To Christmas event when most of the local stores are open for late night shopping followed by the Town Christmas Tree Lighting.

Today is website launch day and I am so proud to be a part of it!
It has been a honour to work alongside Jess and to get to know her as a friend over the past few months.  I have worked as her photographer for the store &'s been so exciting to get involved in fashion photography with product shoots and editorial photo shoots...fabulous & amazing!

I made a special trip to Jess's Estevan store this morning to congratulate her on her success.  Snapped a few photos of the warehouse on this memorable day...I know in years to come when the business has grown by leaps & bounds, we'll all look back to where it all began with fond memories!
