Recently, I was able to visit my friend Sheena in New Haven, Connecticut for a few days and sit in on one of her classes. She is currently an instructor in the Sherwin B. Nuland Summer Institute in Bioethics at Yale University for the summer.
I have had the pleasure to shoot many beautiful people over the past few months. However, two people stand out to me more than the rest and their names are Nisha and Emran. Beside being a beautiful couple, they hold something much more compelling between each other, love.
At the beginning of July, I met with Richard and his girlfriend downtown at the Toronto Harbourfront boardwalk. Richard is currently a valet and wanted to have some head shots so he could gradually get into print modelling and the creative side of things.
As Will and I roamed around Bathurst station on a Thursday afternoon in the Annex, looking for photo locations, we spoke about each other's backgrounds. He graduated as a civil engineer from school and now works as his school's ambassador and I can see why. Will is a smart and funny guy. I'm sure he can confidently lead a crowd of people with ease. So, this is exactly why he's going to be a stunt man.
Last week I met with the sweetest person who I haven't seen since I graduated high school. We were never the best of friends but I always thought she was so intelligent, sweet, funny and kind. That's probably why she was our community service prefect back in 2012-2013 at Branksome.
I love meeting new people, getting to know them and who they are as a person. I love making someone who was a stranger to me minutes a go, a close friend who I can relate to. There are so many fantastic people in the world that we pass by and don't ever see again.
Since I have been back in Toronto this past month, lots of great things have happened. I have started my photography business and met with some amazing clients!
One set of clients I met with very early on was Claire & Albert. They came from Hong Kong a year ago to live in Canada. I was hired to take photos for their engagement in High Park when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom.
