When I was asked by Malorie Bertrand, editor-in-chief of EF Magazine to contribute as photographer for her upcoming issue, I was excited and nervous! What an opportunity and all for an amazing cause too!

This shoot was amazing – all the girls were so sweet and excited to be part of this too which made it so much easier. The nerves soon went away and my creativity came through to give what I think are amazing results.
When I arrived Malorie had set up the change room and makeup area under a huge willow tree, how perfect. It started to rain a tiny bit, but eventually when the makeup was done, it cleared up and left us with a beautiful diffused light. It helped that the spot she had picked was gorgeously romantic, by the canal and by a pretty pond. Perfect for a photo shoot.
The models were wearing jewelry by an artist from Toronto, the pieces were truly breathtaking.
We tried all sorts of poses, included under the willow tree.
EF wanted a dreamy, romantic look and I think we got that perfectly with these slightly over-exposed and hazy images.
The clothing is from cute vintage, eco-fashion shops in Ottawa. Make sure you check EF’s website for the official post for more information on the featured outifts.
I really hope you enjoy the photos and please check out the links I posted for EF Magazine! Malorie and her team are busy converting us into an eco-fashion nation!
As for me, I’m officially EFd up!
