Eat Your Vegetables

More food fun! Good thing there’s a groceries store near the college. I love experimenting with food photography. Input would be greatly appreciated from my photography allies 🙂

Sardines :)

So what do you do when photography school stops for summer break? You rent a studio spot at the college and keep shooting! This time my studio neighbors didn’t like me much; sardines and green onion… I think they look good together, What do you think? (minimum Photoshop here)

Fashion

So here’s a little fashion session I experimented with. I still have a lot to learn. I did have a great time shopping for the outfits with the help of my family (loulou, nana and mati). My favorite makeup artist as well, Noémie Belime, and lastly but not the least Janet Chan as my helper and stress manager. I love the people surrounding me!! Enjoy and don’t be shy to share your opinion…trio

Photo Story

My idea was to show people and their pets at home.

Being a cat owner myself, and having had quite a few animals growing up I know the relationship between pet and owner evolves to something more.

I lived in Portugal for 7 years and when I came back to Canada, bringing my cat with me was very important. I felt I was leaving my friend behind. It was heartbreaking. So as soon as it was possible, I got my cat flown to Canada.

 I`ve also taken a day off from work when one of my cats was put to sleep. I was loosing my best friend.

Our pets become our friends, an extra member of the family. We care for them, talk to them, worry for them. They bring us comfort and warmth. They never complain. They are always there. They make us laugh and cheer us up after a hard day.

In my series I photographed people that were willing to show this special relationship with there cats and dogs.

I would have wished to show a bigger variety of animals but seeing the limitation of time, I went with the most common, which worked out well, because I think the viewer can better related to these relationships.
