aussie bluebird day; kootenays vacation portraits

In mountain culture, a Bluebird day is the brilliant combo of fresh snow, sun and blue skies.  It's spoken of as the greatest of ski days, in particular.  But throw some tanned, gorgeous Aussies in a Bluebird day and you have a whole new thing.
There's absolutely nothing better - I've learned - than an Aussie Bluebird day. Ebony & Anthony's family taught me this valuable lesson.  They're sheep farmers, spreading their own kind of sunshine - in the form of wild hair, wooly jumpers and yellow wellies - as they visit friends in Rossland.
I spent just enough time with them to know that their insides shine even more brilliantly than their out-shiney-selves.  And that is quite a feat.

I met Jenna & Evan during that cold snap in the Kootenays when everything turned to ice. They had to cuddle each other - and their Chihuahua - extra hard!  But I'm all for things that promote cuddles and scarves.   Cuddles & scarves for life.
And a deserted beach.  That was good too.
You know what's also good? people who seem to have no idea how gorgeous they are. Don't let the black leather jackets fool you.  They're humble pie, these two.
