Once in awhile I just meet the most amazing people and things start clicking. I’m not gonna lie… A big piece of me was worried before our session. Deepali and I had been planning this session for many many months in advance and when it poured most of the drive to New West I was scared… Not that I haven’t shot in rain many times. It’s just Prom is such a special day- No one wants their hair, makeup or gown ruined by mother nature. Thankfully we got lucky and the rain stayed away during our time together.
Deepali wanted a location with lots colour and character and downtown New Westminster seemed like the right fit. I used to live in the area and alway enjoyed the mix of old & new architecture. The industrial feel mixed with a glamourous girl brings a nice contrast to the photos in my opinion.
I spotted Deepali on the opposite side of the street and it was hard not to jump up and down with excitement! She looked stunning. Her elegant blue dress was magical. From that moment I knew things were going to turn out perfect. As soon as Deepali stepped infront of my camera I discovered she is naturally very photogenic and moves beautifully infront of the camera. Shot after shot I was very impressed! I have to say it was very hard to pick just a few photos for this blog post to show you all. I absolutely love doing beauty sessions like this with women and If I had the opportunity to do this everyday I would be ecstatic!
After our session Deepali planned to meet up with friends and then headed off to prom. I’m so glad she chose me to photograph such a special time in her life. Deepali is planning to attend University this fall for Interior Design. Deepali you are the absolute sweetest and I know with hard work you will do amazing. Wishing you all the best with your future endeavours.
To all the grads of 2013- Follow your heart and you can make your dreams come true!
