A dear uncle of mine gave me a book of stories from Christian Andersen when I was born. The book was in my bedroom all the time since I have memory, and I always enjoyed reading the stories (as tragic as they were for a child specially!) and looking at the surreal water color illustrations the book had. I guess I had always imagined how the little match girl looked, and it was a dream come true to finally visualize what I had in mind for years. Miss Amaryllis modeled for me, her being Dutch and her obsession with the little Match Girl made complete sense, there was almost no need for direction during the session. What a wonderful experience!
This young model jumped into my from stories series suggesting she could be Tiana, this girl owned the character, every single picture of her makes me smile. Thank you Karly Polkosnik you were very professional a pleasure to work with 🙂
We were contacted by a local artist, her name is Karella and she is a singer-song writer and DJ! We met at the steeps house in Stoney plain road, needless to say the service is amazing and the atmosphere very casual and cool. A little nervous at first Karella managed to relax and have a little fun while talking to me about the warmth of the people near the ocean. The result, absolutely gorgeous photos for her album to come. Thanks so much for the opportunity!
A well known model, radio and TV host Miss. Robbin Reay was the perfect match for this photo shoot based on the story of Little Red ridding hood. I got the chance to use a dog from a college photographer, the dog was very cooperative and the perfect size for my big bad wolf, although she looked very friendly in most of the photos, I captured one of both together where Sighani looks like she is growling at me and ready to attack (she was actually enjoying a treat). Her size and look made the shot, Little red ridding hood in the back totally owning the pose, as a path of darkness frames the scene. It was a lot of fun!
It’s been a while since I don’t do photos for me, so I came up with the idea of doing recreations of moments from my favorite stories, making them a today version of them. I did a casting call for a TFP model. It was a no brainner when Brittany Davidson contacted me saying she would be the perfect Alice, she was right! She is a beautiful 18 year old aspiring model, I was so happy with her and she even had some input on the shoot as on the wardrobe. I will be working again with her for sure. I’m very happy with the outcome of the session and it only got me exited about the ones to come!! Next one is gonna be the princess and the frog and I just can’t wait!
