The beautiful Ms. JJ, who hails from Burundi, was a treat for me to work with, as I not only got to spend the day with very ambitious woman, but an African one, and being South African and having lived in Uganda and Namibia, I gravitate to people who are from Africa. It's like my soul gets filled up again when we can talk about "home" and things that are so familiar so it was not surprising to me in the least when it started to pour with rain in Vancouver that I found myself inviting Ms. JJ to come and spend the night at my home in Squamish so that we could do some hiking shots in the sunshine. Now I have a new friend :)
You can look for Ms. JJ in the lasted issue of Vogue Italy - I unfortunately did not shoot that... if you know a contact call me! ;)
Hope you love these as much as I do. Lots of variety here!
It was pouring down with rain here at the Sea Wall in Vancouver but Ms. JJ was determined to get a great shot. Doesn't she look fantastic!
The Glamourous Ms. JJ!
And then the Squamish part of this shoot began :)
and tennis was played as well. Thanks to the random man we found at the courts who willing played a few rounds!
Loving these portrait/lifestyle shoots!!
