Beautiful Wall Art Canvas by Jessica Lin Photography

A couple of weeks ago, I gave you a little teaser of a creative project I'd been working on.. well - here's the finished result:

I combined a couple of images of us from our wedding trip with some collage-style detail shots from places we stayed and from our wedding party, and I'm totally in love with the final result :) It's 36"x48" and the impact in real life is incredible.. it's hard to show on a blog, so you'll just have to drop by to check it out!

Here are some of the details included:

These birds (which is actually just one bird, included twice to make a little pair) are part of an origami mobile that I made for our internationally-themed wedding party for the family and friends back in Toronto. The purple flower petals are from a shot I took under a tree while we were in Spain - there were these tiny little purple flowers all over the ground and I love how they look scattered across the image :)

One of my favourite parts - Norman wrote our initials in the condensation of the window in our room where we stayed in Cork while driving around the south of Ireland

I made this little postcard out of one of our shots from Spain (believe it or not, we had not only a camera on a tripod on self-timer, but also a light on a stand with an umbrella for this one..) and "tucked" it into the corner of the big frame

We took about five different pictures of our rings in various places on our trip - this was on some rocks on a beach in Clonakilty at the southern tip of Ireland in County Cork (that's a little barnacle in the front).
The orange fan was an awesome find for 2 euros just down the street from where we stayed in Alicante, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain.

This is my lovely husband's handiwork again - this time on a beach in Sligo on the western coast of Ireland (just down the road a bit from where they filmed the Point Break surfing scenes!)

The rose-coloured wallpaper and the gold frame were from our bedroom wall at the B&B we stayed in while in Sligo, and the little vine grows across our tool shed in our backyard in Toronto (it was photographed at the party as well)

Ta-Da! This is the finished file, before I sent it off to be printed on canvas. I love the way this allowed me to include all sorts of pretty and sentimental details, and I really love the whimsical feeling of the end result :) I can't wait to start creating these for the couples we work with, so that they have a totally unique and stunning piece of art that they will love from the images we have created for them!

Baby Noah's Debut

I swear that Baby Noah already has career aspirations - he's either going to be a model or a photographer. He studied me constantly, and followed intently everything that was going on. He also made some of the most fantastic faces I've ever seen (examples to follow..). We spent a lovely afternoon getting to know him, and here are some of my favourite images from our session..  :)

Check out these expressions! I especially love the third one :)

the sweetest little lips...

sweet little baby dreams :)

I really love this shot of Tamara that Norman took.. She totally glowed in her maternity photos, and I feel like this captures the calm and serenity that she exudes in motherhood :)

We felt honoured to be a part of this amazing new chapter in Tamara & Edward's love story, and can't wait to see the whole family again soon!
