Curves & Curls with Jihan

Posted on 30th April 2014 in fashion, risque

Jihan (fb, instagram, twitter), a Curve Model with Wilhelmina Vancouver modeling agency (fb, instagram, twitter) contacted me after I posted on Facebook that I was coming to Vancouver looking for photography work. Something Jihan is very good at is hustling; a smart girl with big plans. We brainstormed our concept from there.

Jihan loved the shoot I did with Lola Frost, a more casual, sensual, and soft look in a boudoir setting. I’m really digging the feeling and energy exploring a persons intimate soul with my lens. It’s a challenge for me to do this in my own unique way, trying to divert from what’s becoming common these days in boudoir photography. Art, not autonomy.

An especially big challenge for me is to work in a location that’s restricted and confined and not have every single photograph against the same wall.

This is what we made.

Miss Jilleena is a Cowgirl

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?
