12 Jan First shoot of 2019
Happy New Years!!! 2019 is gonna be a year to remember. More creativity, more networking and more fun! I love trying different styles of photography and I plan to continue to do so.
I started my new year off on a high note and networked with Angie’s models (a local agency in Ottawa that is also located in Toronto) and booked a shoot with an incredibly gorgeous model, Janice. We met last autumn at the Runway for Hope when I was doing behind the scenes photos. We have a mutual close friend as it turns out. I saw Janice the second time at Carolyn’s halloween party where she was dressed up as a beautiful skeleton. Carolyn is an incredible makeup artist and hair stylist located in Ottawa. She is a woman of many talents. She also does nails and balloon arrangements. What a talented person! It just made sense to ask Carolyn to style Janice for the shoot.
Carolyn did a natural makeup look for Janice because we planned to do portraits that she should could use to update her portfolio. January is pretty cold out so it’s nice to stay inside and be creative in the studio. Portfolio photos are all about showing the model’s beauty without distraction so we did without an elaborate background setup. We used a simple grey paper backdrop and one light setup which was all we needed to get the clean photos she needed for her portfolio. Our first set was with a simple white blouse and jeans.
I love the little black dress look. I think it’s simple but elegant. Every woman should have one of these in their wardrobe. You can never go wrong with such a dress.
Red is Janice’s favourite colour and which is perfect because it looks so good on her! Perfect blouse for Valentine’s Day just around the corner!
It was such a pleasure working with Janice and Carolyn. They are both amazing women who I would both highly recommend. You can book Janice through her agency. I have had such great experience working with Angie’s models. Angie is super polite and very quick to respond back to emails. Her models/actors are all very professional. Definitely would recommend reaching out to Angie is you find yourself in need of hiring some talent.
