One of the best things about collaborating with other artists is trusting each other and seeing their vision come to fruition.  

After attempting to shoot on the Halifax waterfront and having too many pedestrians walking in and out of the shot gawking at the models, we switched locations to an incredible beach that Stephanie recommended.

We spent the afternoon shooting in front of crashing waves and large porous rocks that I immediately fell in love with. Dancers, Katie and Allie, perfectly emulated the vibe of the shoot that I wanted, totally capturing the style and feel I was imagining. 

Just as we were about to head home after a long day of shooting (and being stalked by a man and his dog), golden hour set in.  Stephanie was immediately inspired to shoot in the grassy dunes of the beach.  This wasn't as inspiring to me as the beach was, but I trusted her and now look at the STUNNING images we have!

When I look at the above pictures, I feel like I can literally taste the most succulent blood orange I have ever tasted.  These pictures are so rich in colour and flavour and are so unique to all of our individual portfolios.

Thank you so much again Stephanie for not only taking these incredible photos, but making me fall in love with the magic of a good collaboration all over again.  Also, to our dancers/models Katie and Allie...you girls were beautiful both in your lines and in your spirits. <3
