Well the air is getting a little bit cooler; fall is here and winter is just around the corner. I loved summer this year, but I am happy about the change in seasons. Fall is a great time to take all of the inspiration gathered through the summer months and put it to work. New projects are starting, the studio is booking up with portrait sessions and I am so excited to get down to it! Maybe I'll even get back into the habit of sharing things here on the blog regularly ;)
I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Janelle, who you might remember from my first ever video. I hadn't seen her since that shoot, two years ago, and it was so nice to reconnect. And to see the new pixie cut she is rocking! Such a beauty.
My friend Tanis was in the studio that day as well, and she shot a little bit of behind-the-scenes footage for me, so here's a little video slideshow - a glimpse into what it's like to visit me for a Makeover & Portrait sesh :) (Hit the little gear icon and choose HD for best quality.)

The lovely Michaela Howie from Simply Me in Canmore created this bold-eyed look, which was just what I was looking for. Sometimes all you need is a big cozy sweater and some killer eyeliner ;)
