It’s finally here! In this long-awaited post, I’m finally sharing some of the secrets you’ve all been asking about! Sometimes Instagram brings creative people together. Photography is my creative outlet and it’s always great to meet other like-minded who appreciate the art! I’ve got a trifold of new things to introduce you to in this blog post: the rainbow bridge in Calgary, local photographer Jessica Gray and last but not least, this show-stopping dress!
Rainbow Bridge in Calgary
This rainbow underpass is located in the neighbourhood of Kensington. It’s about a block or two north of the Sunnyside train station. It’s a quiet spot, that many people aren’t aware of, making it a great place for a little photoshoot! Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the exact Google Map location. Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve spent the last 4 years driving around and looking for new murals to photograph. It’s something I’ve invested a lot of time into and I get so many questions about where each wall is located. If you’re looking for cool places to photograph, I encourage you to get out there… the best part is the scavenger hunt!
This Dress Though
This white crochet dress from Chicwish has some topic of conversation lately on my Instagram and Facebook. I’ve never had so many people send me messages asking about a particular article of clothing before! Well I’m sorry I made you wait this long to divulge the details but it’s finally linked here for you! And I’m glad I waited because it’s on sale! I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received on it. The open lace-up back will draw attention from every angle. The only thing I should prepare you for is that, it is almost impossible to wear this dress with a bra. The corset lace-up does help to provide support but I highly recommend a stick-on bra like this one to make you feel more comfortable and give you some shape.
Jessica Gray Photography
Most of you may know that I don’t typically shoot with photographers. It’s really hard for me to coordinate with someone else these days! So I usually head out solo with my camera, tripod and remote. When my kids were at summer day-camp a few weeks ago I did have a couple hours to meet up with local Calgary photographer Jessica Gray. Her bubbly personality made me like her instantly and we had a lot of fun making magic under the rainbow! She boasts a lot of cool “street cred” as she just returned from living and shooting on tv show sets in LA! Make sure to check her out, I know I’ll be shooting with her again soon.
