This last weekend, I had the opportunity to work with Teya on the first of her senior photos. After driving around to for a while, we found some great locations that we wanted to try. Our first stop was at some train cars in Morden, Manitoba.
We got some great shots, but I wanted to try something a bit more creative. We decided to go to a nearby store and see what we could find for props.
Teya and I found some bubbles and bubble wands and decided to let the child in us come out to play. We headed back out to the train tracks and did a bit of experimenting with locations. We decided to stick to sheltered spots, because the wind had become quite strong. Bubbles turned out to be the perfect fit for a fun-loving girl like Teya. We got one of my favourite images of the day using bubbles.
We decided to hit the park next and see if we couldn't find something interesting there. The shelter of the trees didn't do much to stay the wind, but we forged on and found several great locations to shoot.
Once we had used up the locations at the park or "pinned" them for another, less windy day, we decided to try out the Colbert Beach just outside of Morden.
The beach proved to be deserted and perfect for what we were looking for. We grabbed a yellow umbrella to use on this deserted beach.
The still frozen lake made the bright yellow umbrella pop with colour. We decided to keep wandering down the beach to see what other spots we could find to use the bright splash of colour.
The ice was beaconing us to come and try a few shots on it.
We found a spot of thicker ice and Teya decided she wanted to lie down and get the effect of her red hair on the ice. The fragmenting ice gave an interesting background to work with and we decided that it could look pretty cool.
After finishing our foray onto the ice, we were both ready to call it a day. We jumped back into the car and headed for home, with both of us looking forward to what our next shoot together would bring.
