I worked with Debbie and her husband, where we unintentionally end up recreating a wedding portrait.

I have been working on defining my ideal client and who it is I really enjoy working with – shoutout to Dagmar my coach from Courage Space Coaching who has been awesome in helping me.

In the end, I really enjoy photographing women in their mid 30’s and upwards, and specifically women who are going through some sort of transition in their life, whether it is career change, life circumstances, emotionally or physically, and help these women show themselves love and kindness to themselves.

I met Debbie at a networking group in Vancouver. She always has a lovely smile on her face, and her trademark pink streak in her hair. When I first met her, she was selling skin care products, but has since transitioned to Modere products.

We did a mixture of natural light and studio light, utilizing the studio light for the more “glam” outfits.
I nearly always feel that dark outfits really pop on darker backgrounds.
I also really loved how the red on red images worked out, although I did tweak the background colour a little to have it match the red dress a little more than it did in reality.

Debbie also brought her husband Ephraim along with her to the session, and he jumped into towards the end for some couples images.

This image in particular ended up being almost identically posed to one of their wedding day images, 16 years ago – serendipity!
