We ventured west this weeekend to capture images of beautiful Kyla, mere weeks from the expected arrival of her little one. Along for the ride were Kyla, Lindsay, and me...
I felt fortunate to complete my Photography Certificate last fall, and one of the nicest outcomes from the experience was the opportunity to meet exceptional people and photographers. I met Kyla and Lindsay, independently of each other, in photography classes and only afterward discovered that they are friends and neighbours!
I was honoured when Kyla asked if I would be willing, along with Lindsay, to spend an afternoon doing an outdoor-winter-maternity shoot (I love saying it that way as it sounds like a crazy endeavour!) We lucked out as the day presented us mild temperatures (outside of the teeth-clattering wind!) and Alberta's famous blue sky! Kyla, being an exuberant, vivacious and willing subject made her way through feet-deep snow, stood in the middle of the road (while Lindsay helped us with the good'ol Canadian "CAR" shout outs!), and she did it all with a brand new boot whose zipper had failed her...we had lots of laughs and captured, I think, some beautiful shots!
Lindsay, it was a privilege shooting alongside you...you're a class act. Kyla, your photography skills and warm personality make our time together fun and I always feel like I've learned something. Saturday's shoot was, without question, a real pleasure!
Life is good!
