Normally my blog posts feature recent work.
Today I wanted to introduce you to a fellow Calgarian and her Amazing Business- Sweetly Speaking.
Meet Barbara Forster
She has been operating Sweetly Speaking for nearly four years, but the business has been around since 2002.
Sweetly Speaking makes almost all their chocolates on-site and the chocolate is sourced from Belgium.
Sweetly Speaking has developed a method to create chocolates that are completely unique to you. They can create a custom mold of almost any object and turn it into an amazing work of art.
Yes, this sculptural piece is made entirely of chocolate.
If you are thinking about an ice sculpture for your wedding, they can create a chocolate sculpture (up to 5ft tall) instead.
White Chocolate, Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, they are all covered.
And of course, custom colours can be created.
When Sweetly Speaking first opened, their only focus was on weddings, but they have expanded to cover a much broader range of occasions and events today.
If you have a theme, they can create chocolates that suit it, whether it is soccer, hockey, cowboys, circus, if you can dream it up, they can probably create it for you.
Sweetly Speaking even has a liquor licence which allows them to create chocolate and wine (or other beverage) gift baskets.
For your wedding you can have chocolate wedding favours, a chocolate fountain, a chocolate sculpture, or even chocolate thank you gifts for your bridal party.
Who doesnt love chocolate.
Sometimes its nice to take a break from one style of work and try something different. Most of my work is more of a documentary/ candid type, but yesterday I decided I would try out some different backdrops and props that I normally would use for newborns. The portraits turned out beautifully, and I love both of these little cherubs dearly.
He is so handsome.
How can you not love that sweet face?
And, truth be told, these are my own children. I have discovered that trying to get your own children to pose and do just what you want for their portraits is probably more difficult than anyone else's.
