It was a beautiful coincidence that until today I am still in awe when I tell the story on how this trip had come about. Here I was sitting on my computer and researching, preparing for the upcoming March Break.
I have always wanted to do an adventure photography. Imagine my delight when I was contacted by my friend and we ended up planning for a winter maternity session! To add further excitement, its not locally, its in NEW YORK!!!
After coordinating with these two lovely ladies, we have come up with a plan for their session date. The plan was to have a Spring sunrise photo session by the beach. They have coordinated their outfits to be long flowy dresses that could be swept by the wind and their heads to be adorned by flower crowns.
It was late December when a friend of mine had contacted me to do a maternity session for her. It was so much fun planning this shoot with her. We both agreed that she would not be wearing the maternity dresses that we had envisioned in our head.
When I first started, I vividly recall that I have joined various groups in Facebook catering for photographers. There are some that are for mentoring, or there are groups for sharing their know-hows or gentle opinion for your photos. Other groups are for coaching and some for beginners.
It would be a feat to work in the field you are passionate about. But it begs the question how. How does a person make the jump of faith to their passionate dream. My journey took a couple of years in the making. I have always loved photography - longed for it to be exact. You see, I lost all my childhood photos amidst the chaos of separation of my parents.
This shoot is very dear to me. I am very honored that I was able to capture this wonderful celebration of life of a dearest family friend. It was not that long ago that I was taking photographs of her when I had first dabbled with photography.
Tran and I have spent multiple nights planning their engagement session. We have chosen the beautiful little quaint main street in Unionville in Markham, Ontario. This is a beautiful gem tucked away from the city.
