Coffee and Sheets with AmyLynn Emm

Posted on 2nd February 2014 in fashion, lifestyle

Some of you may remember AmyLynn Emm (mm|fb) from the shoot I did in the summer of 2013 with the Bohemian Surfer. We got together again to do a shoot. This time, instead of being 100C, it was raining and overcast!

When we were planning the shoot, AmyLynn asked if I had a backup plan, any place indoors to work. Coming from the North and not having much temporary residence in Vancouver, I didn’t really have anywhere that I felt would match the shoot. She said her place was …ok… Great! Works for me. A backup plan. I arrived at her place and was greeted with a whole wall of windows.

Hello!

The theme of this shoot was around old wool cardigans, boyfriend shirts, and a cup of coffee sitting around on the steps hanging out in the morning. We went from there.

The big dangly jewelery seen in the shoot is from the lovely Miriam of Piyan Designs.

Miss Jilleena is a Cowgirl

Posted on 15th July 2013 in fashion

On the morning of this shoot, I was set to drive the 2hrs it took to get to the location. I had my bags around my shoulder and as I was about to step out of the door, I double checked to make sure I had my car keys with me.

No dice.

It took me two and a half hours to find those car keys. Two hours which included, but not limited to: a new BCAA membership, one BCAA operator breaking into my car, dismantling the couch, refolding a few loads of laundry, numerous phone calls, and one (now wrecked) old clothes hanger.

All that done, I found the keys and jumped on the road. What was no doubt frustrating for Jilleena was that almost the entire drive out there, I had no cell reception! Poor Jilleena thinking I wasn’t coming and then I was…

Alas, I arrived in Lone Butte, BC, of all places, and pulled off the shoot with beautiful weather, and an even more beautiful model. The location was beyond expectations: on a Guest Ranch kind of in the middle of nowhere.

I met Jilleena Askewe on Model Mayhem, and we had been planning a shoot for a while. Every time it might have worked, one of us wasn’t around! But, finally we connected and it… well, what do you think?
