As soon as we sat down and discussed what her goals were for this shoot, we were immediately on the same page. She is working on coming out with an EP for her music and wanted a subtle, calm and almost dreamlike feel to her images; perfectly complimenting her graceful personality. We knew we wanted a golden field, fall colours and maybe some forestry. The last two aspects were easy to find, but a golden field in Fort Nelson?
We had 48 hours to think of a location because she decided to fill a cancellation spot for her booking. The next day, my husband and I had stopped for some coffee and looked over at a huge field covered in tall grass across the street. No buildings in the background, tall trees, and a vast sky; it was perfect! And in town! The grass wasn’t perfectly golden, but we could make it work. We also shot a few images at the Demonstration Forest up on the hill for a little greenery. While we were shooting in the field, we had a lot of vehicles slow down as they drove past, watching to see what we were up to. I’m guessing that it’s not a normal occurrence to see people wandering around that field with props and a light stand. I hope the onlookers will view this post to see the final result!
