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:

Photographed with a Nikon D810 and a Sigma 50mm 1.4

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

Mary was absolutely amazing to work with. She is gorgeous but was also very good at taking directions from me. It was such a pleasure to photograph her! If you need a model in Victoria, BC, I recommend hiring her.
