A few weeks ago, the lovely and talented Kate Skogen of JetKat Photo came over to our place for an afternoon photoshoot.
This has been on my list for a while: a photo session just for my husband David and myself. Kind of odd for us, given that our engagement photos were selfies we took with a point-and-shoot film camera and we weren’t exactly at ease during our (somewhat formal) wedding photos.
Kate and I met through Instagram, where we discovered that we are neighbours in the same Eichler ‘hood. Upon meeting in real life (before which I did some research, stalked her blog, and found her awesome work, natch) I decided to go for it and enlist her services. Kate suggested we shoot at our home, which I loved because it helped us to feel a bit more comfortable and included what has become a big part of our life lately: this house.
We had a nice afternoon hanging out, drinking tea, and chatting about home renovation projects (what else?) Kate snapped pictures of us and our surroundings.
Winston made sure to be in most of the shots. We were impressed by his ability to pose himself expertly in every setting. Indulge me for a second, if you will:
Yep, that’s my dog. Posing on a sheepskin in the guest room. I think he really liked Kate.
I’ll leave you with my favourite shot, taken in our atrium:
Huge thanks to Kate for her fantastic work! Make sure to check out her website and blog over at JetKat Photo.
