Gastown Portrait Session: Moira

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

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 :)

 

Burnaby Mountain Portrait Session: AnnaMaria

Friday, March 1st, 2013

My good friend AnnaMaria contacted me in the fall of 2012 (YES I AM THAT BEHIND!) to do a portrait session as a gift for her boyfriend. I was so excited when she contacted me, she is such a gorgeous person inside and out. She is also a fantastic singer! We managed to get some nice headshots for her CDs as well!

We picked a perfect day to meet up at Burnaby Mountain, it was a gorgeous sunny day. The leaves on the ground were so vibrant it was such a perfect backdrop for my gorgeous model. We had a lot of fun throwing leaves (then picking them out of AnnaMaria’s hair) and enjoyed walking around the park. AnnaMaria was so much fun to photograph, she is such a beautiful person and you can absolutely tell by her genuine smile.

Granville St. Portrait Session: Rajdeep

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Raj approached me through my Facebook Fanpage. However, she is actually the sister of James’ (my bf) good friend. Regardless, I was delighted to hear from her and we promptly set up a date for a photo-session together. Raj picked Granville St. as there was an alleyway that had attracted her the last time she came into the city. A quick change of clothes at the mall, we dropped James at the nearest Starbucks and wandered our way down Granville to scope out the alleyway. Some laughs were had especially when a man rolled up in a white BMW, told Raj she was hot then invited us to take photos in his car. Don’t worry, our “women’s intuition” kicked in pretty quick and we politely declined.

I had such a great time with Raj, listening to her tell us about her trip to India and about her aspirations to get into film and photography. I hope we can get together for another session soon! Preferably without the man in the white car. Enjoy our photos from Granville St. and the Vancouver Library!

 

BLUE MOUNTAIN PARK PORTRAIT: CANDICE

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Candice and I have known each other since College, where we shared three years of full time courses together. We saw each other 5 days a week, for 8 hours, and as if we weren’t sick of each other by then, we’d talk on the phone and also hang out on the weekends.

When thinking about my next portrait session I immediately thought of Candice, with her fashionista wardrobe and her outgoing, photogenic attitude. We drove to Blue Mountain Park to take advantage of the forest shade and greenery. The light was brilliant, and we had fun goofing around in the park taking photos. We caught some looks from other park visitors as we laughed at our own stupid jokes. It was nice to exercise my camera creativity, especially with a good friend like Candice.
