sharing time with nikole herriott & friends at sunday suppers

 
a few weeks back i had been invited by aran to attend Nikole Herriott workshop at Sunday Suppers in ny, i was so excited for nikole esthetics and her way of life had been something i admired for so long.
i have never had so many photographs on a post before and i could have kept adding to it that is because the beautiful studio that karen created was perfect, mix that with props and goods by herriott & grace nikole shop well one could not help themselves.

Nikole is everything i had hope for,  that what i found beautiful and simple on her blog and shop would be present at the workshop and  it was. nikole is the real deal, she puts you at ease, makes you laugh and wow's you all at once. I was so happy, it was so refreshing to have someone so passionate about what they do and that their talent is not only in what they create but in how they make you feel while viewing their work. I was lucky to also meet Michael Graydon ( nikole's beau) i have been an admire of his work and to be able to take time to chat and talk about his shooting methods was very enlightening as well.

Nikole along with a wonderful group of attendees baked, iced and styled some of her legendary cakes. then a wonderful lunch was prepared and eaten as stories were shared by everyone. The highlight for me was to actually meet Nikole and feel a kinship ( not just because we are both canadian) but also because we are living a life that is in our very core way beyond trend. also that as the workshop came to an end, Nikole, Karen, Aran and i were able to help prep for the following days  Sunday Supper while exchanging thoughts, laughers and all this is such a beautiful well executed space that karen has so thoughtfully created. that truly has my creative friends from all over the world drooling.

thank you for letting me be a part of it aran! see you in Tuscany Nikole & Micheal! ( rolling my pennies as we speak)

* i will share an instagram post of my stay NY with Aran at a later time, it was so much fun.
* also i just came back from whistler bc and hope to share with you soon.

Hello Nadia, I was there at the workshop and for the dinner on Sunday night. I was thinking about you yesterday in that I wish I had known about your blog before meeting and chatting with you. Can you believe I read through a lot of your blog yesterday? I did. Perhaps it was supposed to happen this way, now I hear your voice first when I read your words, not an imagined voice. I see in you a kind and gentle soul, so fragile so caring. I hope to meet you again soon. Elizabeth

oh E, i often say i am the luckiest person i have readers who leave comments and thoughts that profoundly move me always but your comment just now touched me so. at the very minute i was questioned certain things about who i am your words found there way to my soul and calmed that very thing.

thank you and yes i do hope we meet again. ( fountain blue has a very big meaning in my life imagine my surprise to find that as your title... life is happily strange and lovely)

Oh, Nadia. These pictures are so beautiful. They make me feel like I was there! I love that first one so much.

Nadia,

What a wonderful day! I have seen other blog posts on Sunday Supper and thought what a magical time it would be to attend. Now to see someone that I "know" who was there to help and document such a special time, I love it even more!

I hope that you have a wonderful week. You are a gentle soul and your magic and beautiful images do sooth the soul, and they make one aware of the real beauty in life...the simple things. I have always loved that about your blog and find inspiration and beauty each time I visit.

I hope that whatever has you down has resolved itself.

Take care, Elizabeth

Hello Nadia,

I love your images and your vision through the lens. I see that you shoot canon but would love to know what L glass you shoot?

You have an artist eye for themes that just exude calm and quiet beauty.

Thank you, Nadia, for opening my world to so many fascinating women who live with soul and beauty. It is awe inspiring. Your description of Nikole is tell-tale. What good is talent without mercy and kindness?
