It was a beautiful Spring weekend here in Victoria and great to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful blossoms in our city.  Saturday I met up with the amazing Ashley Sophia at Royal Roads University for a photo shoot.  Cherry blossoms, mystical forests, and historical castles were the perfect backdrop for the shoot.

Royal Roads, now a historical landmark, was once home to the Coast Salish First Nations people.  It later became inhabited by one of the very first settlers to BC in the early 1900s, the Dunsmuir family.  They built a breathtaking castle (Hatley Castle) which was their home for many years.  Later the site became a military college during WWII and for many years.  Today it is a modern university with a very rich history and 800 acres of beautiful gardens and ponds.  It is said that ghosts roam the castle and gardens…

Thank you again  Ashley Sophia for a great day and for sponsoring me with your photography!  I had so much fun working with you – it was a pleasure!!
