Cristy Pt. 2

So with the "dark" side covered, we needed to get some of the legit pictures that could actually be sent out to family =P

We went to a friend's property and had some fun with the sun. Oh and get used to seeing the cat-tails/fluffy shrubbery...I think the next 2-3 shoots have some =P I've formed an obsession with that quality...it just catches the light SOO well; magical. Hope you keep in mind that I CAN function without them...it's just too pretty to resist sometimes =D

Enjoy!

A [Dark] Senior's Fairytale | Cristy Pt. 1

Had an AAAMAZING Thanksgiving meal and afternoon with the fam...when it came time for the kids to be put down, there was some down-time and I've wanted to get these up for a while =)

So as you may know by now, I obesely enjoy shooting anything out of the ordinary. So when my housemate from last year asked me to do her senior portraits, she asked if I'd also try something else.

Now, I know Cristy's a blast and completely the opposite of this "dark" nature (you can see a bit of it when her tough-student facade cracks and she can't help but smile)...this fact made it so hilariously more enjoyable for me. Her boyfriend Tyler had this idea and we implemented it when I visited Tennessee.

Today happens to be Thanksgiving, though not really hers (she's onna them Canadians *wink*), and I wanted to give her something to celebrate the holiday, haha. Ironically, I know we are both undoubtedly thankful for our education. How 'bout we call this a celebration of thankfulness that we completed it =P

Hahaha, enjoy, all you students out there. Live vicariously through her! And I'm off to play games with the fam! HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL!

A Touch of Vintage | Andrew & Tara

So back at school when I worked at the photo-lab, I always loved getting to know the new crop of noobs that would come through every semester. This would be where Andrew entered, complete with fedora hat and Bon Iver; he was a mutual friend of my art-dept. friends. Somehow, not even exactly sure how, we ended up as texting buddies...random travel-pictures, late-night homework groanings, hilarious one-liners we'd see, whatever, we'd send 'em on, laugh, and carry on with life.

One day, I remember him developing some sweet looking pictures from a coffee shop and he told me all about the Camp House. This kid had an affinity for coffee, so why was I not surprised when I found out where he'd proposed to his awesome girlfriend? Lol, you guessed it, the Camp House. I met Tara randomly in and out throughout the year, and she was always so cool. Got to know her more during the engagement shoot: EVEN COOLER. This chic is too cute, and so easy-going (and just as much into coffee as he was ;-).

These guys are such an awesome couple; we had a blast! They wanted "a touch of vintage" in their shoot, so I enjoyed working with the [sweet] props they brought and trying a few different looks in post. I'd tried my hand at vintage really for the first time during Danny and Ashley's shoot. What they were looking for was something just a tiiitch more subtle; let's see if we hit any marks =)

After the fields, we were off to downtown Chatt. Ten points if you can guess where this is ;-) A band was warming up and the staff graciously let us rearrange furniture to our heart's content:
