When Maggie proposed that we take her photo shoot to the infamous Venice Canals, of course I did not object! Photographing at the Venice Canals is always so fun and fulfilling with the unique architecture, bright colors and sun shining on all the wonderful vegetation. Sometimes I get swept up in all the hustle and bustle so visiting a place like the Venice Canals on a perfect Sunday reminds me how I’m so lucky to live in a city that everyone want to visit constantly!
Usually I like to start photo shoots with walking shots because clients feel most comfortable and it gets the energy of the photo shoot started. With Maggie I didn’t have to worry about that one bit because she totally rocked it! She nailed every pose that I gave her and had so much fun with the shoot, letting her personality shine through it all!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Maggie as we walked through the canals discussing life goals and adding owing a house at the canals to our list. Maggie is one of those lovely human beings with a lot of positivity and goes with the flow of life. She’s lived in Los Angeles on and off for years but she’s originally from Netherlands and moved here to study her dream – filmmaking! She went on to share with me that she’s currently focusing on documentaries with her sister who has recently done a TED Talk (Check it out HERE)! I see Maggie and her sister doing amazing things in the soon future!
Although I think my favorite part of the session was with the second outfit because that amazing California sunshine was illuminating Maggie’s dress perfectly. A little back story behind the dress – Maggie’s friend who is a fashion designer gave the dress to her as a present since it looked amazing on her – how sweet!
I had such a great time roaming Venice Canals with Maggie and am looking forward to our next shoot! Need some personality photos or head shots? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (209) 769-3281 to schedule your photo shoot today!
