Can you believe we’re related?! Victoria is my little sister! Yes indeed! Now you can see who got the good genes in the family! 😉 Oh, is it worth mentioning that the necklace is MINE? Yes, yes it is. I have the good necklaces of the family. 😉
This past weekend my family came to Ottawa for a visit and I really wanted to use this opportunity to do a session with her. You see, my parents and two younger siblings have lived in Bermuda for the past several years, which means the amount we were able to visit them (and have them visit us here) was pretty minimal. And when we did get the opportunity to see each other, it was usually during the holidays or some other time that was less than ideal to sneak away for photos. Anyway, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do some. And isn’t she gorgeous? I’m sure she’d love it if you left her some love in the comments section. 😉
April is the 3rd and final teen that I had chosen to work with for my teen Casting Call!! Her mom had contacted me after reading through my Facebook page that I was looking for models and after a few weekends of bad weather and trying to coordinate our schedules , we finally met up to do this shoot! April was a very sweet girl and I really enjoyed working with her! Thank you April – I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!!
There is something so challenging yet totally awesome and rewarding to be able to really connect with teens. Especially boys. There’s nothing more mysterious than boys of this age group. So quiet, yet outspoken. So shy, yet so opinionated. And unlike a lot of girls, they don’t always feel that comfortable in front of a camera. Thankfully for me, I keep getting the most AMAZING subjects to photograph though so Brian and I were able to just sort of hang out while I snapped away. Of course having the guitar there was a big help to keep him looking so relaxed and just like himself.
I really enjoyed photographing Brian. He is a musician who is a edgy and creative so it was a must that his images reflect who he is. I wanted his images to ‘feel’ like the type of guy he is, and I’m so pleased at how his personality has come through in these.
