I met Emmie through a friend of mine, and for her age, she is very mature, and a awesome model to work with. I had this concept that was about this girl in a fairytale like forest, and wandering it, with her lantern. I saw previous photos of Emmie, and I knew that she was great for the role, with her natural curls, and her awesome dress, I am not sure I could have found someone better for it. Once I found her, I went scouting for some spots I haven’t used before, and visited a sanctuary in the middle of Edmonton, Alberta I had been to once before, but had never explored, and it is a great place. I had originally planned to do this shoot with flash, but I forgot a piece needed to use the strobe I brought, so I had to stretch my natural light muscles as I haven’t used them in quite some time, but flash would not have been better after seeing the outcome, and my forgetfulness saved me this time I think! This was just one of those shoots where we could of kept shooting, but after around 2 hours, I had to call it quits, as it was getting late, and the sun was disappearing.
