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:

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

The Camp Collective in British Columbia

The Camp Collective in British Columbia

Hey friends!

I am trying to go back to better habits with blogging, so here I am. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I attended a workshop called The Camp Collective in British Columbia in June. The workshop was a total blast, and I had a great time hanging out with my friends Tara, Frances, Cole, Ali and Jacob. I also met a bunch of new photographers at the workshop, and we all became good friends. This is really the best. Meeting new people at workshops, and making new friends, is my favourite part of attending workshops.

So, a hello to my new friends: Sara, Aileen, Lisa, Isabella, Monique, Danielle, Kim, Melissa, Mary, Emily and Amanda. You are all amazing!

Of course, we also took a lot of photos, like A LOT. We laughed, we cried, we played games, stayed up late, talked… a lot… laughed more, did yoga, ate good food, slept well, learned so much while still having lots of fun. This camp was like a small vacation for me, a camp for adults, or to be exact, a camp for photographers. Plus, we stayed at Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island. British Columbia is beautiful, and Galiano Island did not disappoint. I took the ferry for the first time to go from Vancouver to Galiano Island. This was fun. We also had the best bus driver who took us from the ferry arrival to Bodega Ridge. The drive was unforgettable. I wish I had a pic of the old school bus but I was too busy laughing and singing to take pictures.

Here are some images taken during the camp. There is a mix of lifestyle photos, portraits, challenges, etc. You get the point!
