From the photographer:
When it comes to coming up with a vision for a session, I have a bit of a unique approach. All of my sessions are inspired by music more so than any photography or art. The vision for this session came to life from some beautiful, soft, folk music playlists that I had heard in the days leading up to the session. I knew I wanted the final result to be light, airy, and pretty, but also with a touch of heavy grain black and white frames to keep a certain edginess to the whole session. I rented a lovely studio in the heart of downtown Peterborough. The light couldn't have been more perfect that day. I had worked with Meaghan in the past and was so excited to team up together for a new project. She brought some amazing wardrobe options and we paired each with a different room in the studio and got to work. My goal was to tell a story with the entire session. A story of soft light and love. Meaghan rocked the whole session, like usual, and I was so happy with the results. With sessions like this, I really like to slow everything down and take time to craft each pose to flow with the story line of the project. I love including all the small details of the studio space and of the wardrobe to give the viewers a concise feeling of seeing the entire session. I want my work to feel natural and flowy to anyone who may be viewing it. I've never been a fan of stiff, rigid poses. Even when I purposely pose a model I try to keep it looking as candid as possible. I want the viewer to feel like a fly on the wall and see something natural and light.
