Horacio Ramirez Collection

Had the pleasure of shooting for the talented Horacio Ramirez. His first collection is up on his website www.horacioramirez.ca.

Horacio Ramirez has been designing clothing since he was very young.

Born in Mexico, Horacio lives in Toronto, Canada since 2005. His interest in design spilled over into theater and dance costumes which he presented at numerous musical events in Mexico and Canada. In 2000 he created and coordinated an outstanding fashion event – One Hundred Years of Fashion in Mexico.

Check out his website for more information.

Kyle and Yurie in 💘

On a warm sunny day in Toronto I had the pleasure of shooting these love birds. They have been together for over 10 years and met on the west coast of Canada. I wish them nothing but happiness in their continued journey down the path we call life.

This shoot had a story book feel and you’ll see my images reflect that subtle surreal vibe. Enjoy a small preview of the highlights.

 

Indi & Josh Pregnancy Shoot

Indra and I met while we were taking Special Effects Makeup classes. At that time Josh and Indra were thinking about expanding their family. I was so excited when she called and said that they were expecting a baby girl and they would like to book a pregnancy shoot. First time parents are always a pleasure. The excitement in their eyes is irreplicable.

The shoot was inspired by free-spirit summer hippie vibes. Enjoy some  highlights below.

John and Enni

Congratulations to the lovely couple on their recent nuptials. I had the pleasure of shooting their love story this past fall. John and Enni met at work and it was love at first sight. A year into their relationship John proposed and it was the best decision of his life.

Enjoy some of the shots captured that day.

Schutzhund at CCSC

Shooting at the German Shepherd Shutzhund Club of Canada.

I had the pleasure of shooting some Shutzhund training in the beginning of September at the Capital City Shutzhund Club. I’ve never seen such a bond between animal and trainer before. All the trainers, members and pups had a blast together. Most dog owners overlook the fact that their furry companions need more than just food, water and a walk around the block.  Every dog at the club looked like they were in their natural element. The practice of Shutzhund training helps owner and pet learn to communicate and trust each other.

Looking forward to shooting there again soon.

Ethnic Stranger

Recently I was inspired to try playing with bold colours and dark shades. I think it came out well. Anna as always was a great model and made my ideas come to life.

Looking forward to more of these creatives! ❤❤❤ (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Bohemian Summer

With summer just around the corner and the weather finally getting warmer I decided it was time to get out of the studio and shoot outdoors! 🙂

This very natural shoot was inspired by the beautiful bohemian Anna.  Hope to shoot more of these looks now that she’s visiting Toronto from far away Russia.
