Early August, I held my first portrait giveaway draw to celebrate my brand new Facebook page that launched July 7th! Jordanna Nativ was selected and just 5 days later we shot a session in studio. She booked MUAH, Cherry Dolls Beauty. It really makes an incredible difference when you book a professional for hair and makeup. Not only in how you look in front of the camera, but how you feel as well.
We decided to shoot some portrait & beauty. Let the fun begin! We shot for just over 2 hours, went through 4 different outfits, and ended up with a ton of proofs, this is just a little taste of our session. Jordanna was a natural in front of the camera, with great energy, a beaming smile and electric blue eyes.

Special thanks to Shannon Laliberte for assisting!
On April 16th, Marilynn competed in her first OPA Bikini Competition at the Cogourg Naturals. She finished 4th out of 14 competitors in her category. She now qualifies for the Provincial Championships. Yay Marilynn!! It takes a person with alot of dedication, and discipline to achieve these kind of goals. I wanted to shoot a creative with this awesome woman, so we made it happen, three weeks after the show. My interest in fitness and health has been increasing over the last year, and with it, my interest in photographing athletes. I wanted it to be more than just posing in workout outfits, I like to shoot fashion, and Marilynn is just nuts about shoes and clothes. I wanted to showcase her beauty and strength. It was so much fun! The planning was even loads of fun! Overestimating the amount of outfits we could shoot in, we still managed 5 looks. I wanted to experiment with misty backgrounds, I needed an extra set of hands to do this while I shot. My pal Danielle Roach, who was assisting me, ended up drenched from doing all the misting you see in some backgrounds! Behind the scenes video clip below :-)
