McKenzie :: Just Because

This post is part two of a two day shoot. From the very first frame I shot of McKenzie, I KNEW one day just wouldn't be enough.

The camera loves her and she is so genuinely sweet that I can't help but hope she'll model for me again. This second shoot

was even more fun for me, as we were both more comfortable with each other and we got to get out of town. For those of you

reading this that aren't from Penticton, there isn't really much of anything "urban" to speak of here.....we headed to the "big"

city (hehe) of Kelowna and shot in the same back alley where Brooke did my maternity shoot back in January. It really was a

perfect setting for her. I took McKenzie in to Mac to have her glammed up, and the fantastic artist completely brought my

vision to life. ( If you are reading this....we can't remember your name; send me a mail and I'll link to your site)! I then

frantically ran through the mall like a madwoman and picked up the big purple flower for her hair, which was actually a pin for

a jacket, as well as those fab black lace gloves...I think everything together looked ah-mazing!

So.....thank you thank you thank you McKenzie - for a highschool girl you sure are comfortable, talented and confident. A

thank you also to Brooke for coming; this one was just too good to miss out on...make sure to check out her blog since the

pics should be up soon:)

On a side note - my own fancy new blog should be going live in the next week, so stay tuned!!!!!!


p.s. I think I may have the best job in the world...thank you so much to everyone who stops by to see what I've been up to, and even more importantly; my friends, family and clients who trust me enough to step in front of my lens:)

Okay, this last photo took me a while to put together - I KNEW McKenzie reminded me of an actress from the 40's or 50's and I finally figured out who - Rita Hayworth; don't you think???!!
