YAY! the Atlantic bubble just opened up so my daughter who lives in Fredericton, NB came to PEI for a 10 day visit. Man does time fly when you're having fun! Jillian and I have always been super close, so knowing we were going not allowed to visit one another for months was quite difficult! We would video message with facebook and synch up and watch shows together which was great but it just doesn't beat being together in the same space! She is one of my favourite things to talk, er brag about!
I'm so proud of my BBG (I will always call her my baby girl!). She's faced her fears, moved out on her own, is following her dreams and is doing really well! She's always loved fashion as you will see from some of these images, so it made perfect sense for her to pursue and study Fashion Design at NBCCD. Hard to believe she is now going into her third year this September already. She supports herself with her youtube channel, Pixielocks where she vlogs, talks about fashion, school, mental health and much more. She has quite a following, who she calls 'The Confetti Club'. Her style is very colourful and happy! I have always loved photographing her of course! She brought along a few outfits for a 'lookbook' video, so I helped take some photos and video for her. We drove to various gorgeous places on PEI to find backgrounds and also went to our family cottage for a couple of nights.
I thought it would be fun to do a blog with some of the photos we took! Much silliness and laughter.
These are the 'fashion' photos we took when she was home. Click image for full view.
Then I thought it would be cool (with her permission) to share some photos of her from over the years. She's 22 now:) Let's just say that opened up a rabbit hole of searching back into the archives for hours upon hours (I started this a week ago!). SO FUN to look back and remember all the fun we had together doing these photos. She was my 'test subject' for lighting for many photo sessions. Now I have to use a mannequin head!
Gallery one is little Jilly. Quite the little character <3
Not so little Jilly! It was a challenge to edit these down! As you can imagine there are many more where these came from! I have a real passion for black and white photography, however you may notice only one of the images in this set are in black and white....I wonder why?
Pixielocks Dreamy Cottagecore Lookbook Video!
Featuring her mom doing the photos, video, and um yeah some silliness at the end! So fun!
Thank you if you made it this far and for checking out this blog post!
