I recently felt stale with my photography due to lack of practice! So I sent out a Facebook message to see if anyone would be interested in a photo walk with me. My childhood friend, Moira, was one of the first to send me an email to set up a portrait session.
Her ideal location was her own backyard in Gastown, Vancouver. I was eager to venture downtown to visit Moira and see her gorgeous apartment, right on Water St. The trees decorated with white, year-round Christmas lights sparkled in the bit of sun outside the window as Moira showed me her beautiful apartment. The hustle and bustle of tourists, shoppers and downtown traffic buzzed quietly down below us while Moira got ready and I caught up with her boyfriend, Matt. He was even nice enough to step in for a few photos later!
Moira led me through the streets of Gastown to a little bridge over to a little gem called Crab Park. A small beach, playground, pier, and garden all hidden behind the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. We started our photo walk here and wound our way around Gastown for some unique and fun locations that Moira had in mind for her portraits. She was very intent on shooting in a location so close to home, and it showed in her photos. She was calm, relaxed, easy going and so much fun to photograph. She kept telling me she had no idea what to do and didn’t know anything about being a model, but I’d say she’s a big fat liar as she hit this set out of the park. Moira is truly gorgeous, so it’s not difficult to take a bad photo of this girl! I loved this session, and I hope you do too
