So last weekend, I had a photoshoot in Halifax with one of Atlantic Canada’s best photographers, Brent McCombs.  My girlfriend, Sara, offered to come with me and help out with the shoot (thank gosh she did because between her, Siri and the GPS, I was still stressin’).  It was the first time I had ever driven that far or driven in a city bigger than Fredericton.  Judge me.  I felt like this was a defining moment in my adulthood, and then there was a snow storm on top of it!  We made it safe and sound and as you can see above, the shoot was SO WORTH the drive!  I am so, so happy with how it turned out  (also, you need, need, NEED to check out this video that Brent made of our shoot!!  It shows just how much work went into it).

I also have to mention our kick ass team. Without them, this shoot would not have been possible.  From a top notch photographer; to a stellar hair and makeup team; to gorgeous, hardworking models; to moms shopping around for us, bringing colourful tights in for all the models; to the surface stylist/assistant doing all the little things that needed to be done…I could not have asked for a better group to work with!  I hate to sound desperate,  but PLEASE share these photos.  The work that went into them was unreal.  It might look like a model just laying on a pool of fabric that was haphazardly thrown on the floor, but trust me, it was so much more (again, please check out the video to see just how much work went into these pictures).
