A Valley Session I (South Waterville, Nova Scotia)

This is one of the first successes from my second session working with Bianca; we’d intended to do an early morning coastal session, but the weather in Halifax was a little chilly, so we headed to the valley.

After a few preliminary portraits in a field, we headed into the woods, looking for spaces to work in. Almost immediately, Bianca spotting this uprooted tree, and over half-an-hour or so, we explored it visually, with this being my favorite result.

After the first forest image, Bianca and I continued our explorations, and swiftly found this perfectly angled tree, which lent itself perfectly to a number of compositions.

When I first met Bianca, to talk about working with her, one of my first thoughts was “what a great face”; while get the feeling she feels I have yet to get that “perfect” portrait of her, I really enjoy this moment, made while she was modeling in some ferns.
