Photo Native 2020

Photo Native 2020

Last February, I travelled to Santa Barbara, California for Photo Native 2020. The memory seems so far already. I miss the sun, the hugs, the laughter, the photoshoots, the people…

I realized how beautiful this experience was, and yet I felt like I did not appreciate it fully, now that we are stuck in quarantine during a pandemic.

So here are the photos from my native photo shoot organized with the collaboration of my girls Lindsay and Kaitlin.

M O T H E R

She is always running after time. She wants to slow down but there is always something to do on the to-do list.
She is tired but she does not tell anyone, because she feels like she can’t complain.
She looks at her kids growing up and her heart does that thing where it’s breaking a little bit. She can’t believe they are this age already. Where did the time go?
She wants to freeze the time but she also can’t wait to see what things they are going to accomplish in their lives.
She is always torn between nostalgia and excitement for the future.
She wants to soak it in as much as she can. But she is always moving on to the next task.
She is here and thinking ahead at the same time.
She is simultaneously the witness and the main character of the story.
She is the mother, the guardian of all memories.

A video about my creative shoot

I did a creative shoot in April and I asked my friend Sara Jewell if she would like to film a little promotional video for me.

Sara is so talented and I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many amazing creative people. I love the video she has created for me and I am happy to share this film with you.

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 Archipelago. Those are my all-time favourite presets.
