Magical Moments - a Fairytale

I love styling, I love the story and emotion it can bring to a set AND your model.  I would love to work with this style of photography much more.

We had an amazing team for this series - our model is Aislinn Rose of DejaVu Model Management here in Kelowna who is frequently away working internationally.  She has been home for a bit and I finally managed to do a collaboration with some incredible talent here in the valley.

Make up by my sweet talented Saara Labib and this crazy hair was styled and added onto Aislinn's already long, luscious red locks by Tanya Milnes.

Dress and over skirts were created by me,  I really love the way all the styling came together.

These were taken with natural light, in the evening with thunder crackling all around us, and slight sprinkles of rain, with an ominous threat of a torrential downpour.  We managed to get all the shots we wanted without a catastrophe of rain, however!  The following images showcase a head piece and a fan that were borrowed from another amazing photographer here in the valley, and then completely revamped to suit this shoot.  The full dramatic skirt is also made by me.

So for the last look we just took off the head piece and shook her hair a bit to get a really emotional dramatic look.  The wind kicked up and we knew our time was about over before the rains hit.  I have to say, Aislinn was one of the best models I've had the pleasure to work with, her professionalism and attention to detail is stunning.  {Note how delicate and beautiful her hands were in every shot…}.  Thanks to everyone for making this series turn out so well!
