Shot at Loon Call Lake, Ontario, Canada
This lifestyle session is dear to my heart. Not only because it takes place on an incredible lake in Canada, but because the models are my sister and her husband.
We were vacationing at our cottage for a couple of weeks when we decided to go out and take some pictures on the island close by. We wanted to convey to the viewers what cottage life in Canada looks like. Canoe rides and bonfires are only part of it, though. Without someone important in our lives to share the experience with, there’s really no point in doing it at all.
There’s one more reason I wanted so badly to document everything: I miss Loon Call Lake a lot, and I’m not sure when I’ll be going back. In fact, looking through the photos almost brings tears to my eyes. I have nothing but fond memories of the place and to me it’s completely magical. My hope is to share the memories with you – the viewer – in a way that makes you feel like you’re actually there.
