Summer seems like so long ago… and here I am finally blogging this gorgeous portrait shoot with Jaquie in the canola fields just north of Edmonton. It was a gorgeous day with a gorgeous subject… pretty much perfect really! Well, except for the plague of mosquitos, but that seems to be the theme for the summer of 2011 here. Enjoy a few of my favourites as we dream about warm summer (and forget about the impending snowstorm tomorrow!).
A little while back I tagged along on a conceptual portrait shoot with Becky from Just For You Photography to the outskirts of Edmonton where she found a fabulous spot with concrete foundation from a torn down house. I shot along with Becky and did a few set ups of my own. It was pretty cool to see how we both interpretted the same scene. Ashton was a fantastic model and made the job pretty easy for us. I amazed by how composed she was considering the swarm of mosquitos that was following us, or maybe it was just me they were following. This a different type of session for me since it was way more serious than I usually am, and I think I ruined a few shots cracking jokes, but I just like to keep people laughing! So, here’s a few of my favourite photos from our evening in the field.
