Portraits of BaileyEdmonton Portrait Photographer

As an Edmonton portrait photographer, it’s not a secret anymore that I love taking portraits of women. So I was super happy to take these photos of Bailey when I flew from Edmonton to California in October for a workshop. And they turned out to be some of my favourite portraits I have taken. Sometimes we think that we have to plan an entire shoot, find a stylist, get a make-up artist, find a location, etc… I am all for a super planned shoot but I realized that sometimes shooting a very simple portrait in a very good light is just what you need. No tricks, to special effects, just very simple portraiture. I think as portrait photographers, we sometimes forget to go back to the basics. So, it’s good when you have a chance to just do that. It’s simple, it’s minimalist.

Of course, the California light helped me here and Bailey is very photogenic. But I am glad I kept it simple. This is exactly what I wanted to achieve here.
