I had the absolute privilege to be able to capture my childhood friends beauty within a few photos. It was so easy to take these pictures of these beauties, their pictures really impressed me due to the fact that they did an amazing job modeling their clothes. My first model “O,” (the first two pictures seen below) has been my friend for 13 years. She is a beautiful young lady that has grown up surround by wilderness her entire life due to the fact that she has grown up in our small town of Chapleau. O loves to keep active, she believes it is important to have a healthy lifestyle, that is why she does physical activity everyday and is running a half marathon this August.
O has a natural glow all due to the fact that she feels good on the inside which obviously makes her look great on the outside. She is a very kind and approachable young lady, this is why I am proud to call her my best friend. She modeled a stunning sun dress purchased from the store Orsay from our trip to Europe this March. This outfit would be perfect to wear to a dinner date. It is very comfortable while looking chic and classy all at the same time. The sun dress also had a settle touch that consisted of a slit rip on the middle of the dress. O presented the camera a cotton knee length dress that was a dark shade of charcoal with strips of light grays falling along the side. She also decided to wear a gentle black shoe that she got from Call it Spring, the shoe complemented the dress ever so nicely due to the fact that it did not take away from her beautiful sun dress.
We took these photos on Birth Street in Chapleau Ontario, and never would have thought that a grungy corridor would be the perfect spot to capture such beautiful images.
My second model is “M,” she has also been my friend for 13 years. M is a very stunning young lady that has also grown up in our forest surrounded town her and lived right beside the beautiful Chapleau river her whole life. M is a 5’8 beauty that spends her summer days outside with friends exploring new adventures. She loves spending her free time outside enjoying our nature filled town.
M loves seeing new things and jumping on new opportunities, this is why she has been to Florida, South Carolina twice, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. I took M’s pictures on Parliament Boulevard, Chapleau Ontario.
M is wearing a casual attire that you would catch her wearing to school or walking around the streets of Chapleau with her friends. This outfit is the perfect look for a teenage girl to wear on a nice spring day. It is comfy yet very cute, I am sure every girl loves being comfortable while looking stylish at the same time! Especially if you are a busy girl like M, you have to make sure you can go the entire day without feeling uncomfortable.
If you are looking to recreate this perfect spring look, her casual blue cotton skinny jeans was purchased from American Eagle, her lacey top is from the stylish shop Garage and she paired this lovely outfit with army green shoes from Le Chateau. Working with these two models was a blast! They both presented me two very different looks, however the looks that they chose was a complete replica of their personality. Both looks can be worn where ever and when ever, they are both comfy and stylish which is a huge plus for any teenage girl.
