There are so many reasons why I loved this shoot. Mostly because I had an excuse to get these lovely ladies in a room with me and my camera, but mostly it was a great way to develop more of my photographing skills with people who were willing to pose for me.
The beauty in a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart; the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. - Audrey Hepburn
This lovely lady approached me a while back for a shoot. I am so glad to have you a part of this shoot. This giggle monster was perfect for this dynamic shoot. Stylish and earthy tones she really got what my style was as an artist; fun, active, earthy, and natural. This shoot I gave everyone the freedom to select their looks, outfits, textures, limits, and overall vibe. I love the way Brittany was game for anything! Even the near death experience of falling off the chair! JK. But seriously Brit, you are so gorgeous and I hope we can connect again soon. You were the first one of the shoot and it was a great way to start a shoot, with good laughs!
The chillest girl I know. I've known Anna for over 2 years now and I am always learning something new about her. Always full of great ideas and nights out she's my go to to keep up with everything happening in this city. But seriously, she doesn't even know how beautiful she is. Also someone who's been in front of my camera many times, the features I wanted to highlight in Anna's shoot was her spirit! It's contagious! Leaving this open of creative collaboration she wanted a neon inspired look. And I am so glad we went for it. Something I haven't experimented with yet, I am so pleased with our collection! Plus she's insanely gorgeous here (my favourite photos of her to date!).
If there's anyone that folds the same interests as me it's probably this girl. The first thing I learned about this lady was her passion for travel and the amazing platform she has created for it. But not only is she amazingly beautiful on the outside she's even sweeter on the inside. I've only had a couple run ins with Devon and each time I always think to myself, "we need to be friends." She makes everyone feel welcomed and energized being around her. For her session I really wanted to explore the look of skin. What it looks like folded, shadowed, layer together...... i ran my idea by Devon before the shoot and she was game! It's great to have someone in front of the camera that feels so comfortable there. I could have gone on longer with her because it was such a pleasure to have her willing, fearless, and trusting in what I do.
Another gal I want to say LETS BE FRIENDS! We met Hana as a significant other to one of our friends and I am so glad we did! I've always wanted to have more excuses of parties, events, get togethers just so we could have more time getting to know Hana. This lady has always had nothing but encouraging and supportive feedback on all the work I've put out there. To be able to have a shoot that invites women who are strong, supportive, confident, and overall a nice person I for sure wanted Hana to be a part of it. It's almost like a detailed thank you to her for always being supportive of my work.
First up is the lovely Erin! I've been taking photos of my girlfriends ever since I bought my first DSLR camera. This lady was there for it all. It's been so great having a helping hand as my assistant on shoots but an even more of a pleasure to have her in front of my camera. And for her, I would take photos anytime any day! To have a friend that has been there from the beginning, seeing me develop into the photographer I am today is such a beautiful thing to have with someone. When first thinking about this shoot she was my first person I ran my ideas by. And since she's been here since the beginning I thought this time we would push the limits and be a little bit more revealing. SHE'S A BOMBSHELL!
