Editorial portrait session in Edmonton

Editorial portrait session in Edmonton

Taking portraits is my favourite thing to do. I am never tired of photographing people, but it gets even more interesting when I get to photograph someone so beautiful as Monique. I found Monique on Instagram. She is a young model in Edmonton. I kept seeing photos of her popping up in my feed. So, I decided that I wanted to do an editorial portrait session with her. And that’s what we did!

Monique is incredible. Sweet, professional, so good at posing and those freckles!!! I can’t get enough of her face! Haha!

Enjoy the photos!

Monique is represented by World MGMT.

Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Every photo session is different and this one had its own challenges. My client and I were supposed to take photos outside. But winter in Edmonton is always full of surprises and the day before the shoot, the temperatures suddenly dropped to ridiculous numbers, plus a wind which would freeze you to death if you would stay outside more than 5 minutes.

So, we started our urban lifestyle photo session in a parkade but quickly realized that shooting outside was going to be impossible. That’s when my friend Ali from Blondy Photography came to the rescue. I had mentioned that I would come to shoot in her home studio Home by Blondy for the second part of the shoot, but we had to head over to her place after 15 minutes.

But this is the interesting part of a photo shoot, to go with the flow, have a plan B, and be prepared to change your plans.

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??
