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.
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.
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.
I am happy to share that my picture “Shadow Queen” was recently featured in Dark Beauty Magazine. I have been following their social media feeds for the last year and I love all the creativity that is show cased by them. Thank you to everyone that liked, shared and commented on this piece. I am always happy to hear from you and know that my work has brought a little bit of magic to your day.
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.
I recently did a shoot with Lauren and wanted to share the results of some very simple PS tricks.
I’ve been using PS since the year 2000 and over the years it has changed how I look at beauty and photography in general. I believe that perfection doesn’t exist, instead our uniqueness should define us and attract us to each other.
Commercial photography has very defined ideas about beauty and many people outside of the editing community don’t realize how Photoshop can change digital images. Never trust the pictures you see in magazines 😛 We can all look like that if we had a PS pro process our images.
Ask yourself: Why would you want to look like everyone else? Embrace your beauty ❤ Strive to be the best and healthiest version of you!
Let me know what you think 🙂
