Lifestyle portrait session with Shiann

Lifestyle portrait session with Shiann

Earlier this year, I had a burn out. I went through a tough time where I did not feel like myself. I was just irritated and exhausted. I had no inspiration and I felt like my creativity was suffering.

After a few weeks, I felt like I was slowly coming back to myself. Finding my creativity again. Regaining energy and motivation. Not feeling like I am falling behind.

That’s when I got in touch with Shiann and we started planning our lifestyle portrait session together.

For this shoot with Shiann, I had a few ideas in mind but not a clear vision of what I wanted to get from the session (ugh, hello burn out!). We were texting and sharing inspiration and she showed me a picture of this kimono. Right away, I knew I wanted to use it for the shoot and style it a certain way.

I love coming up with a concept, creating an entire shoot, photographing it and seeing it become a reality. It makes my heart happy.

Sometimes, we feel stuck and burnt out. But actually, doing something and “forcing” ourselves to create can help. I felt so much energized after this shoot. Finally, I was able to create something that was aligning with my brand, my style and my vision for my photography. What a relief!

I’ll post more pics of this shoot in another post. Different outfit, different look. Stay tuned!

Love,

Em

Portrait of Mary in the forest

Portrait of Mary in the forest

A portrait of Mary in the forest…

Wow! I can’t believe I never blogged these images of Mary in the forest, taken in 2017 in British Columbia. It’s about time!

Also, a portrait from this session has won a final place at The Voice competition organized by Clickin Moms and Click Magazine. And I got to win my own print of my photo!

The winning photo combines two of my favourite subjects to photograph: nature and a woman’s face. Maybe it will be the beginning of a series, actually. In fact, there is something magical about a woman photographed in a forest, surrounded by trees and leaves, sitting on the ground and celebrating her life and her beauty. So, I hope these photos make you stop and think for a second. Indeed, think of nature, think of the beautiful women in your life, think of what you want your images to be, and what you want people to feel when they see them.

For the technical details:

Now, let’s see the pictures…

Green is definitely my favourite colour to photograph. I am obsessed with these tones!!! Give me all the shades of green!

My best photos of 2017

My best photos of 2017

I was not planning on doing a “best of 2017” blog post but I realized, I still want to show off all the gorgeous people I photographed in 2017. So here is my “best photos of 2017” or as I should call it, “my favourite shots of 2017” that never been posted on social media (for most of them).

My favourite photos are not my clients’ favourite photos and not the most popular posts on Instagram. Also, it’s my second official year in Edmonton. How cool is this? I finally feel like home here.

So, here you are. I hope you enjoy and may 2018 be full of beautiful photos sessions with amazing human beings!

Cheers and happy New Year!

(Clearly, I have a thing for gorgeous women laughing. I am good with this!)

Editorial Mother Muse

Editorial Mother Muse

A few months ago, the ladies at Plaid and Paisley Littles Boutique asked me if I would be interested in shooting an editorial for them, for Mother Muse. Being a fan of the magazine already, of course, I said yes. Plus, I needed to shoot something different, and I am always in for a good collaboration that boosts my creativity. Well, let me tell you that I was not disappointed. Brandi, Bryttani and Brookelyn had something specific in mind, and it was a bit different from what I usually shoot. But the truth is that I liked being pushed, I liked getting out of my comfort zone.

French girl shoot in Edmonton

French girl shoot in Edmonton

When Ashley and I decided to shoot together, I sent her a few images for inspiration. And then when I looked at the images I sent, I told her the theme were obviously: French girl in Edmonton waiting for her boyfriend. Hahaha!

The day we were supposed to shoot was not exactly the best day for both of us. My phone died the day before, and I had to go to a shop in a mall almost outside of the city to get it repaired. They gave me a temporary phone until mine was getting repaired, and then I was late for the photo shoot. Ashley got lost on her way back from the make-up artist studio, and could not reach me, and she was late for the photo shoot too. We both started the shoot on a very stressful note, but ended up laughing about it.
