Eastward Facing

Before embarking on a life changing trip to Asia, Ola sat for a portrait session in some great spots in and around Burlington. We decided to capture her in some of her favourite spots at home before uprooting her life abroad. 

After choosing the locations we decided to shoot at sunrise. Aside from some logistical advantages to shooting at ungodly hours in the morning, part of my suggestion of a sunrise shoot was also to inject some meaning into the photos. With doing a sunrise shoot I liked the idea of looking east, toward her destination. Sunrise also symbolizes a new beginning for many. As this was the beginning of a new journey for Ola I wanted to build that feeling of a new start into the photos. 

After taking in a beautiful sunset we jetted off to some of her favourite spots including a local coffee shop and downtown shops that had a gorgeous old world charm.
