I photographed these sisters back in the summer. I recall having so much fun watching them being who they are, their expressions, their interaction.
I am extremely fond of children photography as I love spending time around them. They live in a fascinating world full of joy, imagination, playfulness, innocence.
Something that us, adults, need to be reminded of from time to time.
On Friday evening I had the privilege to meet the super talented and uniquely creative, Lucian Matis. Proud to say he is coming from the same country as myself, lovely Romania and we share a passion for our amazing heritage.
Lucian and his associate director, superb fashion photographer Arline Malakian, introduced me to an unexpected world of silky textures, elegance, soft colour tones, in two words: pure fascination. This is how I felt among the super slim and tall models with their almost surreal aura, looking like they were coming from a different time and space. I have floated in an impossible to anticipate type of reality and my head has been spinning not knowing exactly where to look first.
The emotion was intense, especially when the girls started on the runway. We watched from behind the scenes in a state of awe and deep admiration for what Lucian was able to create this time around.
Congratulations for yet another spectacular achievement!
Carly & Patrick got married on a gorgeous September day. I love Niagara on the Lake and I was thrilled with their great choice!
I am always inspired whenever I find myself close to the water. Their ceremony took place at the quaint Queen’s Landing. Everybody was relaxed and laid back, but I could constantly feel a lot of emotion in the air. There was one moment in particular that really touched me: both Carly’s grandmothers tied their rings to her bouquet. It was difficult for me to hold back my own tears!
After the ceremony Carly and Patrick were taken in a carriage over to the reception place, the beautiful and elegant Prince of Wales Hotel, Niagara on the Lake’s landmark.
I finished my day with a delicious ice cream at “Cows”, while relaxing and contemplating the way the events have unfolded throughout the day. I felt content and thankful.
Congratulations Carly and Patrick and may your new life together be joy filled!
Heather and Christian got married last year in August. I have thoroughly enjoyed being there on their day.
It was to my nice surprise that almost one year later Christian contacted me thinking to surprise Heather for their first anniversary by offering her a ‘trash the dress’ session with me. He knew his wife would be absolutely thrilled to wear her gorgeous dress again.
So here I went to Barrie on an amazingly beautiful September day. We had, again, a lot of fun together. Heather looked stunning, she was so playful and daring, she ended up going into the water all the way! I feel blessed for this great opportunity that allowed me to fully express my creative vision while getting to work again with this very special couple!
I have to say a big Thank You to Christian who has organized it all and even brought a canoe. He was so very patient and helpful throughout the shoot, making sure his wife was comfy and having a lot of fun!
In case you are wondering, the dress is doing just fine, it did not suffer any injuries in the process and I am very happy about this part. I am all for ‘mild’ such sessions, following which the bride gets to still enjoy the intact beauty of her cherished gown.
Big hug to you guys and we shall see you soon!
