Two days into my Yellowknife Vacation and I have felt so much love and support. There have been deep conversations with friends, laughter, and moments of intense creativity.
Last year I worked with Erykah on two creative portraiture projects, one was regarding Mother Earth and the second was a Levitation portrait.
Erykah is a true creative, she is an exceptional nail tech, Jagua designer, dancer, and model. Not only was it a joy to photograph her in the heart of Yellowknife overlooking Frame Lake, but it was refreshing to reconnect and spend some quality time together.
I brought my bolt of tule and lace with me in my carry on and I fashioned a dress from a white bed sheet and used the tule to create shape and an ethereal movement to the fabric as well. It’s creative sessions like these that revive me as an artist.
The Morris family is a family full of laughter and joy and their family session yesterday was so much fun to photograph. Stuart had contacted me before mothers day and wanted to book a session to honor his amazing wife, well she did hint it quite heavily to him! I am so delighted to share their family session as it is full of vibrancy that shines through each family member’s individual personalities.
Diane you are truly a wife and mother of character and I think the world of you as a role model, how fun it is to spend an evening in the warm summer rain surrounded by the jewels that are your children.
Please like, share, or comment on how amazing you think this family is, lets show them the love!!!
How stunning is Diane, what a beautiful soul and exceptional beauty.
The Dyck family called me for family photos a year ago, and a few weeks ago we declared it to be an annual tradition. After a gorgeous fall Sunday morning we met up for the 2nd annual family photo session. The sun came out, the rain held off, and after we all went out for sushi… A tradition I love.
Michelle and I met through a model page on Facebook and met up for the first time for a very forward shoot… I like to call it my Tim Burton session.
Since then I have worked with her at Galaxy Cinema’s and she’s changed her hairstyles multiple times (but then again, so have I) … So this session is definitely different from the last. Michelle you are so much fun to shoot, stay fierce and enjoy!
Jason & Divine have been together for 6 years, and this Thanksgiving they announced their engagement to the entire family. I cant wait to see them promise forever to each other. Jason is the son of my late uncle Ken, much like his father he isn’t too big on romantic mushiness… but Divine gave that lovely little smile and he was all game! CONGRATS YOU TWO LOVELIES!
Nina Lilly is an aspiring model and photographer in town that I met through networking with local models. She enjoy’s being infront of the camera just as much as being behind the lens. Nina also has a knack for designing her own clothes, so when she wanted to do a bit of a rocker/rebel styled shoot I was more then game. Note the cool vest she made out of an old shirt that she cut up and fashioned into a skull face.
I have recently become friends with a lovely person named Lindsay, who I was introduced to by Ian. She is such a fun soul; just by looking at her body of work, Lindsay’s definite love for photography shows.
About to make a big move to Nepal for a year, Lindsay was looking to sell her 135mm L-series. I jumped at the chance to be the owner of such a great lens. I love how sharp, clean, and precise the images are!
I thank you Lindsay, and so will my brides.
I had to test it out :
Today I went to Jesse Jane’s Boarding Stable to watch Ian’s mother train a stunning horse named Finesse. She is a bit of a stubborn mare, but Marilyn is an exceptional trainer with extreme patience (I think Ian gets that from her).
To say the least this lens makes me smile, and with my two recent additions I am beside myself with the images these will produce.
LETS START PLANNING!
