Down at the Lake

(button up shirt c/o Ruche)

My favourite time of day to take pictures is while the sun is setting. The lighting becomes so soft and warm and pretty, not to mention it's just nice to watch the sun go down. Last night we snapped a few pictures on our way out to dinner (Japanese, yum!) and it was nice to have a bit of a wander around the lake in the warm Spring air. Only a couple more weeks and I'll be able to fully transition into a summer wardrobe, that makes me happy!

    The sunset truly gives an amazing 'something' to the photos.
    The light is so beautiful and I really like how it makes your hair shine. Also, you can actually feel the breeze by looking at these pictures...
