One evening when I was driving home from Halifax, I pulled over to get some gas and I checked my phone. When I went on Instagram, I seen that I received a message from Maggie, she wanted to collaborate with me and do a cool but different shoot. So obviously I said yes! I just needed some time to think about the idea...
Earlier in the fall I put out a status on social media asking for names of local makeup artists... And that's how I met Taylor! She ALSO sent me a message on Instagram saying she does makeup and would love to work with me.
About a month later, the idea came to me when I was at sitting home and seen a commercial of somebody eating a cherry off of an ice cream. I knew that I could take this idea and make it my own with the help from these two awesome ladies!
Once I had some time to go over my vision, I laid it out for both of them.
Vibrant makeup, that matches the colour of the fruit. Sounds easy right?
I had to scout out a spot... Which is pretty difficult when you are a natural light outdoor photographer. Luckily, my boyfriend goes to university in the city and he told me that there's an atrium on his campus that is super bright with a sky light window, and white walls. When I went to go look at this place myself, it was perfect. We found a big wall, that had a bathroom right beside it.
Day of the shoot:
We claimed our wall
and took over the bathroom
Back and fourth we went, putting makeup on, taking 10 photos, then taking the makeup off, RINSE & REPEAT.
We got what we came for
Makeup - Taylor Olie
Model - Maggie Sutherland
Ladies and gentlemen,
