a day in deep cove

I had the pleasure of spending one lovely day nestled in a beautiful home in Deep Cove, Vancouver Island for a work retreat with my dear friend, Tara Hurst.  Its hard to describe how good this home made you feel. It was dark and cozy, decorated with love and objects of deep thought and personal meaning. When a home has been loved and lived in, you can feel it. As if the walls are not just protecting you from the outer elements but embracing you. 

Here are a couple images I managed to make in-between our work day, beach lounge and dinner making. 


Pigeonhole Home Store


The other night, I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest new shop in Victoria, Pigeonhole Home Store. The shop has both vintage and new home finds and sits at the corner of Stanley Ave and Bagbie Street. One look from the outside and you know this is a store full of treasures. My dear friend, Tara Hurst, did the branding which you can read about here. 

If you are local to Vancouver Island or find yourself this way, this store is a must see.

I am so excited to share with you my photos from a shoot I did with Tara Hurst on Marte Marie Forsberg's site, Food For Thought. I love what her work is about... celebrating food, farmers, and the beauty of cooking with quality ingredients. Click here to see the full feature.
