PEI Photo Shoot - Simply Awesome!!!

Have you ever read the book "Anne of Green Gables" by Lucy Maud Montgomery?

It is a romantic novel about a young orphan girl who came to Prince Edward Island to live with an Island family and work as a farm hand. (she was supposed to be a boy)

Anyway this young girl with flaming red hair and seven freckles had the most vivid imagination that led to all sorts of romantic adventures.

The book although written a hundred years ago remains a number one best seller to this day. Romantics the world over have followed their own dreams and found their way to Prince Edward Island to explore for themselves the land of Anne (with an e)

Now it's time to meet a real life Anne who also came to Prince Edward Island . Laura Jane is a true romantic with her very own adventure that also involves Prince Edward Island.

Let's first visit PEI Photo Shoot something organized by a half dozen Island business women some of whom are known as the Island Tweethearts. (need I say more)

To really get the back story on Laura Jane and Cam I need to take you on your very own  "Whimfield" adventure.

I really wouldn't feel complete in doing this post on our famous "Anne" character without  including a visit to "Cavendish Figurines" This business was started by two friends that I med during my "Community School" days. It has grown into a very successful business with (of course) International sales.

I hope that you have enjoyed this tiny taste of  my "Hidden Island Paradise"

If you liked it please leave a comment and feel free to share it with your friends.

Oh yes and please if you liked the photo shoot let them know with a comment. Thanks!!!

Thanks Johanna,

The business came out of Community School quite a few years ago when Don Maxfield and Jennete Arsenault took an idea and made it real.

I watched as they took it from an idea to reality and on to a success story.

They deserve a big high five for all that they have accomplished in those years.

Hi Kim,

Yes, the ladies did an awesome job on the shoot. Do you think that Cam was just a prop or a real part of the story line?
