Sylvian | Toronto | Portraits

Session Date: 7/4/2010
Location: Toronto

Fair warning: always be prepared to have an impromptu photoshoot around a photographer - haha. You never know when to expect it. That's what happened with my cousin-in-law Sylvian. =P We were all at a hotel in Toronto getting ready for a big extended family dinner over 4th of July weekend. Sylvian asked me to help her with a new eyeshadow quad she had recently purchased. After showing her where to apply the shadows, she looked so pretty that I had to do a photoshoot. She was a bit hesitant at first, but definitely didn't take long before she warmed up to the camera. =)

Lily Bee | Old Town Gaithersburg | Portraits

Session Date: June 13, 2010
Location: Old Town Gaithersburg

I had the opportunity to hear Lily sing at Kollaboration DC auditions few weeks back and fell in love with her voice. It wasn't long before we decided to get together and do a photo shoot. She wanted vintage; I love vintage, so it was a perfect match.

The day was blistering hot and even threatened to storm, but luckily we were able to get through the shoot perfectly fine before the afternoon shower arrived.

This shoot was particularly awesome to me since Lily did what she did best and sung a song while I shot her. One of my favorite tunes too - "Dream a Little Dream of Me". We also had a little audience, which we didn't mind at all.

Now for the results from the day:






My fave from the batch

If you're in the MD/VA/DC area, be sure to catch Lily in one of her many concerts.
You can also catch more of Lily on her youtube channel.
