Savannah's Dance Themed Lifestyle Shoot

I met Savannah back in February while shooting the wedding of her friends Lisa & Aron.  She was one of the bridesmaids & we hit it off right away.  A few months later, she reach out wanting to do a branding overhaul for her dance school Propel Dance Center & get some updated lifestyle shots for her Arbonne Consultant businesses.  As a dancer she wanted the images to be artistic, unique & fun, all while being powerful & making a statement.

For me, this was a great opportunity to really be creative with lighting & posing while directing someone with so much grace & body awareness.

When it came to picking a location we both agreed Evergreen Brick Works would be the perfect place to start with it's variety of backdrops, soft natural light, privacy & rustic feel.  We the shoot on the pier facing Toronto's beautiful skyline at sunset.

Big shout out to Savannah for putting her heart & soul into each image, as well as all the prep she put in for this shoot. Immanuel & Rebecca, thank you for your amazing assistance, you were both so helpful & made for really good energy on set.

I hope you enjoy the variety of looks & feels we came up with on this editorial feeling lifestyle shoot for Savannah.



Evergreen Brickworks Lifestyle Shoot

Shooting Sylvie back in February on my first "official" portrait session was a total blast so when I had the chance to do a lifestyle shoot with her and her equally beautiful sister Cleo I was more than eager.

A few from my shoot with Sylvie this past winter

Having started a retreat business together along with their friend Janey called Panacea Wellness they needed some fun pics in a sweet Toronto location. Despite only shooting for 1.5 hours in blasting midday sun we were able to find some soft shaded areas and ended up with lots of authentic pics thanks to their awesome souls + smiles and Toronto's rustic Evergreen Brickworks as a backdrop.

For Photographers: During this shoot I used all available light including shade and diffused light, a Fujifilm XT-1 with 56mm 1.2 and a Nikon D750 with 35mm 1.4 Sigma Art Lens.  They were both on me at all times thanks to the Holdfast Moneymaker.

Rock on,
