I love lace, waterfalls and red lipstick. What happens when you combine all three? You get this absolutely beautiful and striking series of portraits taken for Melanie’s birthday. An absolute natural in front of the camera, Melanie was great to work with. I spent the entire day with her while she got ready for our session and helped her choose her outfit the week prior to. (Did you know she made this dress herself? She is so unbelievably talented!)
We also braved the icy road conditions left from the previous week’s snowfall and cold temperatures to get to Elowah falls, the location of this session. This was the first time that both of us were here, so it was exciting to see everything with fresh eyes. The hike was short, but the incline and snow made it a bit more challenging than anticipated. I can definitely say I wish I brought my good boots and a warmer jacket!
I really find these portraits to stand out. Not only for the contrast of the black on the white, but also how beautiful of a model I had. This session was a great way to start off the New Year and a wonderful way to celebrate Melanie’s birthday.
Happy birthday once again, Melanie!
