Last week, I teamed up with Katie from Sparks&Lillies in Vancouver to shoot a neat new outfit off their spring line. Katie and I actually grew up next to each other in Kamloops, and I remember when we met up in Richmond, I said, "The last time we saw each other, I was probably 8 years old and biking in your driveway."
This was my first one-on-one shoot with a kid. I've always believed that bringing a tonne of energy into the shoot is paramount for a good mood, as that always translates to the subject. However, Lyla had me WAY outmatched in that department. We hit probably the coolest playground I've ever seen, and I'm pretty sure I burned calories racing her around the park.
I can understand the claustrophobia involved with island living, so it was nice to hop over to the mainland for a bit. As much as I love Victoria, I'd love to incorporate a bit more travel in my photography.
