Jennie in black and white

Jennie in black and white

I have been holding these black and white photos of Jennie for a while now.

Sometimes I like to keep images for me because I am protective of them. I love them so much, I want to keep them for myself.

It’s always a stress to photograph a fellow photographer, but it can also be a lot of fun. To see a woman you personally know express herself in front of your camera, and blossom like the gorgeous and sensual person that she is in front of your eyes is such a gift.

I will share the colour version of this session in a second post.

Enjoy!

The Truth in You: Zviko

The Truth in You: Zviko

A Truth in You session with Zviko

I met Zviko through Tuesday Together, the Edmonton chapter of Rising Tide Society. I immediately noticed her incredible beauty and her kindness. She is also a boss lady as she is one of the owners of Casa La Deesse. It was such a pleasure to photograph her.

We did the photo session in my apartment, where I have a good amount of decent light and a huge window. It was easy to capture the beauty of Zviko as she is a natural in front of the camera. I also love to keep my sessions minimalist and simple.

Pushing my creativity with Alvina

Pushing my creativity with Alvina

Pushing my creativity with Alvina in Edmonton, AB.

As a photographer, I always try to push myself and to push my creativity and this is what I did with Alvina, at the end of last year in Edmonton. We did that portrait shoot in my apartment in Edmonton and it was great to create for me.

Alvina is a make-up artist, a student, a model. She is a creative herself, so it was great to collaborate with her on that session. I never saw someone posing so easily and being so intense while also being so natural and peaceful.

As usual, I kept my posing pretty simple and minimalist. The only things I wanted to use for this session were this black stool and the white curtains. They are both from IKEA and they are super cheap! Hahaha! I also shot a little bit under-exposed, so my images have lots of grain. It was starting to be very dark in the end, but I actually like the results.

I edited these images with the Wolf Pack presets by Tribe Photo Co. Those are my all-time favourite presets.

The Truth in You: Tracey

The Truth in You: Tracey

I realized I never shared this Truth in You session I did in Edmonton with my friend Tracey.

Tracey and I met two years ago when we both moved to Edmonton. She messaged me on Facebook one day, asking me if I would like to meet her for coffee. I remembered the feeling I had when I first moved to Edmonton and I would email photographers I was following on social media to ask them to meet for coffee. How scary! I don’t want anyone to feel rejected, so of course, I said yes. Oh boy, I am glad I did. We quickly became friends and I am happy to have her in my life. That girl brings another level of positivity and energy in my life. She is hard-working, dedicated to her job, she is a loyal friend and a beautiful person inside and out.

We did that session last year and I can’t believe I never shared it. Well, it’s time for you to discover how gorgeous she is. Watch out!

Remember when it was Summer?

Remember when it was Summer?

Remember when it was summer in Edmonton? Well, I do and I remember I did that shoot with Devyn at the famous “accidental beach” in Edmonton. Of course, I forgot to blog it. What’s wrong with me?

Anyway, I thought it was a good time to post these images. It’s February, we are over winter and ready for Summer. These photos make me happy!

Also, it reminds me of my favourite quote by Albert Camus.

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” — Albert Camus

Okay, who miss summer??
