This fun, inspirational shoot, the ‘Summer Watering Hole’, from Tara Wittaker Photography was inspired by the “Get in the Water” scene from the movie “The Notebook”.
In the romantic flick set in the 1940’s, country boy Noah Calhoun (played by Ryan Gosling) encourages young heiress, Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) to swing off a rope and into the watering hole. The scene, much like this shoot, is sure to conjure up nostalgic memories of childhood and floating down the river on inner tubes. At the very least, it will surely get you dreaming about how to spend your next hot summer day! I know what I’m dreaming about!
Fashion blogger, Becky Kung, of Canadian blog fame, Velvet and Vino, was Tara’s muse for this shoot.
Becky’s “Dolce Vita Dot Swimdress” from Swimco suit is adorable!

From the Tara Whittaker Photography:
What could be more “quintessentially summer” than a float down a lazy river on inner tubes. It’s the perfect pastime for hot summer evenings in Alberta. I met up with Becky and James at Stanley Park to photograph a relaxing evening on the Elbow River. In that particular spot, the trees bend over the water and the evening light streams through them in the most magical way.
Becky is a Canadian style blogger ( Velvet & Vino) and in planning their shoot, we were reminded of the swimming hole scene in the movie “The Notebook” where Noah coaxes Ali to “get in the water” from a rope swing. With that in mind, Becky turned to Swimco for a vintage-inspired suit and Sarah Mayerson Design designed a pretty flower crown. It was the perfect way to spark some summer romance!
What are your most nostalgic summer memories?
