Feature: Anna’s Prom!

Ah…Prom. They are SO fun to shoot! (of course, it helps when you have photogenic people to shoot like I did! 😀 )

The hardest part?! Choosing which pictures to put into a post…because there are SO many beautiful pictures!

Anna’s Prom…We’ll start at the beginning of the evening when her escort, Mitch, came to pick her up (in a Jeep! yes! 😉 )

But before we leave, let’s take a better look at that gorgeous dress and some of the lovely details.

The dress of a lifetime…

Downtown, we met up with Anna’s friend, Jannice and her escort Jonas.

“Come on girls, let’s go! We can’t be late!”

On the way to meet the rest of the grads for the traditional prom “boardwalk”.  Every grad class in Kelowna does this. 🙂 While they were organizing all the other grads…we took the opportunity for a couple shots on the beach.

The traditional walk along the boardwalk… amidst 700+ grads (and their escorts!)

Thanks for letting be part of your special day, Anna! It was super fun! 😀 Congratulations on your grade 12 graduation!

Always, Aims

P.s. Be sure and come back to my blog tomorrow…I’ll be announcing a special feature that will carry on through the month of June! 😀

Feature: Jannice, 2012 Grad

Meet Jannice, high school graduation, class of 2012!

Ah, I’m SO excited to introduce you to Jannice! We had planned to do her grad shoot last week and then ended up postponing it until Monday. Monday turned out to be a fantastic day for shooting…which makes me extra glad we had to reschedule! 🙂 We were going for a little more of a rustic feel for this shoot and decided to take pictures at the Father Pandosy Mission in Kelowna.

Jannice has been a friend of mine for a few years, it was such a privilege to take her pictures.

When I think of Jannice one of the first words that comes to mind is “sweet”, and it’s true, she’s an all around sweetheart in the best sense of the word…but she also has a super fun personality (especially once you get to know her!) 🙂

It was for Jannice’s sister’s wedding that I traveled to Germany last year.  While there…I was asked numerous times how I was related to Jannice…I guess lots of people think we look alike.  I’ll take that as a compliment thank you very much. 😀

But here’s the sad part 😦 (sad for me anyways!) Jannice’s future plans include moving back to Germany… That selfish side of me comes out when I say I’m sad…because that means she won’t be here with us! 😦 However, on the other hand, I’m so happy for her! She’s already been accepted into a nursing program there and she says she wants to come back! 😀

So I’ll look on the bright side and enjoy her for the next few months before she goes back! Besides, this means I have a place to stay if I go back to Germany, right? 😉

A special thanks to Jannice for be so fun to take pictures of… I couldn’t have done it without you! 😉  Don’t stay in Germany too long, ok?

Feature: Anna Grad ’12


Today I get the pleasure of featuring Anna! She’s graduating from high school this year and we decided to start celebrating already!  She’s graduating in a couple of months, and we also “happened” to do this shoot the day after her 18th birthday. 🙂

Not only does Anna have a fun personality, I like her fashion sense too. 😀  She inspires me to be different and to be more adventurous in my own fashion tastes.

We did the shoot in downtown Kelowna at the waterfront.  After having a snowfall the week before, we were both pretty excited to have such a sunny afternoon for the photoshoot.

 

Anna is also a licensed lifeguard and swim teacher, but her future plans include something in the nursing field. I’m pretty sure she’ll be fantastic at whatever she sets out to do!

Hey, she can even drive stick (I can’t do that yet!) I mean, how cool is that? 😉

 

I had a blast Anna, thanks for letting me take your pics! All the best for your future! Hope to see you through my lens again soon! (Sooner than later I think… I’ve seen her prom dress already!) 😉

 

Always, Aims
