The last couple months have been absolutely stuffed with engagement and portrait sessions – and if I am being completely honest, they have been some of my absolute favourites ever!! And this isn’t even because I have gotten to stroll around some of the best locations in Ottawa, or because I am truly loving the images I have been creating, but instead it is because of the amazing people I have gotten to work with. Like Sabrina + Colin, who I feel I could have walked and chatted with for ages!!
So Dave and I spent a couple days on the rooftop of the Brookstreet Hotel having some fun with Make-A-Wish earlier this month. I’ll be sharing more about all of that (including the photos of course) a little later on this week, but for now, the part I want to share is that I of course got sunburnt. My side of the roof was in the shade for almost the entire day, and I swear I used sunscreen – but for the last 1-2 hours of the event, I was in complete sun on the roof of a very tall building.
I mention this because when I showed up to Miranda + Jason’ engagement session, I made sure I was covered from head to toe (well, from neck to toe) to try and make sure my poor skin didn’t get any worse. And despite how uncomfortable it was to walk around in the sun and heat with long sleeves on, it was made all the better by being able to work with two absolutely marvelous people like Miranda + Jason.
