Gardening Life Photoshoot

The day after the Launch Party I dragged my weary body out of bed and headed west to an area north of High Park called Baby Point to have my picture taken for Gardening Life magazine. Crazy! I brought Davin along so he could a.) keep me awake and make sure I got home okay in my half-comatose state and b.) take pictures.

The shoot was set up at a little garden shop called “The Flower Room.” The place smelled heavenly, and I was very relieved to find out that they would be taking my photo indoors rather than outside in the brisk winter air (in a t-shirt no less) as was previously arranged. I was feeling exceptionally unglamorous but look pretty much like myself (a very weary and exhausted version of me) sporting what I am now calling my “Official Press Photo Uniform.” It’s the best outfit for the day!

Here are some photos Davin took to document the procedure:
