I'm an amateur photographer (and occasional model... hey, somebody has to be in the photos!) in Whitehorse, Yukon. I do a lot of my photos in cooperation with my sister, Mykaela, who also takes fabulous photos (ancalimegreenleaf.deviantart.c….

I enjoy photography as a hobby and as an artistic outlet... I've always had a more fanciful and perhaps romantic vision, and I try to capture what's in my head with my photos, which is an interesting challenge. Many people choose to do this with sketching or painting (which would make sense, seeing as you're not as limited to reality), but I enjoy actually "living" the moment and making what's in my head as much of a reality as possible.

I have plenty to learn about photography (lighting, exposure, editing and so much more), and I'm guessing most of it will come with experience, though suggestions are most welcome!

Well, we've finally done it! 
A year after the last Elements photos were taken, we've finally gotten around to doing the Air photoshoot, completing the Elements (though now there's talk of doing a Metal/Mineral element as well and we are intending to redo the Earth photos in September). 
I'm thrilled with the photos... There are so many of them, so I'm going to take my time editing them and posting them. There will be many more to come. 
I'd like to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped on this project. Charlene did an amazing job on the makeup and costuming, Mykaela was an excellent model and Liz, of course, was excellent with her creative support and inspiration. As well, the eyelashes (aren't they amazing?!?) were custom made by Rachel Olson, and they really make the photos, in my opinion. If you're interested, I definitely recommend checking out her site! eyelashesbyrachel.com/

To those of you who said it couldn't be done.... HA! All obstacles can be overcome with the mind of an artist! (Well, most obstacles, anyway) 

So please, let me know what you think. If anyone has any ideas for upcoming shoots, do let me know! We're talking about maybe doing a "Stolen Child" photo shoot... We haven't done proper faeries before!
