I completely fell in love with the Sunshine Coast on this trip. Everything about it, the small towns, the sea, the people, the mountains, it all took me back to my roots.
It'd been a lifetime since I'd been back down south on the ocean, but I actually grew up on the island. I spent the first 10 years of my life in Campbell River, and I have such great family memories of sandcastles and starfish, chasing crabs and messing with sea anemones on the beach. I'm a true sea bum at heart.
While I was there, I spent some time photographing with Moorestock Outfitters, this amazing retail store that just so happens to sell every style of everything that needs to be in my closet. I could have lived in that store. We did a little product photography by the beach, did some fashion photography in the forest with the lovely Gwyntie, interior designer extraordinaire. It was a blast.
We were actually incredibly pressed for time as we were shooting the . This was the fastest photo shoot I've ever done! Racing the clock, cutting it as close as it could possibly have been to missing my float plane back to YVR, it was hilarious, and scary, hah.
The next time I go down for photography I plan on bringing the boys with me and making a trip of it. Hopefully convince Dan we need to move there. Introduce Sawyer to the ocean. Maybe when the cherry blossoms start blooming...
