Brooklynn + Abigail | Mount Washington Portrait Session

โ€œCreativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules,
making mistakes, and having fun.โ€ โ€“ Mary Lou Cook

Brooklynn & Abby are two of my favorite little models to work with ๐Ÿ™‚ They’re super fun and really seem to enjoy the sessions. They both have a promising modeling career ahead of them if either of them decided that they wanted to go beyond just having fun ๐Ÿ™‚ This was my third session with the girls and I’m looking forward to many more!

When their mom asked if I would like to do a shoot with them on Mount Washington I was thrilled and plans were made on the spot! She had these beautiful white ponchos picked out for them and wanted to get some snowy photos while it was on the mountain. Given that it was already April at the time, we almost missed our window but we managed to find a day that worked for us right near the end of the ski season. As it was, there were people leaving after only an hour on the mountain due to deteriorating ski and snowboarding conditions. I didn’t mind that it was a little warmer and more sunny than usual lol I’ll be the first to admit that I hate being cold. That was one of the perks of moving back to Vancouver Island – very little snow and ice lol

We had been hoping for fresh snow but that didn’t happen so we ended up going exploring on the search for cleaner snow without a lot of sand on top of it from the roads ๐Ÿ™‚ We did manage to find a great spot when we explored a cross country ski trail but in the adventures I ended up sinking through the top crust of ice up to my knees!ย I never really thought about how cold snow actually is until I was up to knees in it! lol

Their mama spent HOURS on curling the girls hair! It turned out so beautifully though and worked perfectly with their adorable outfits ๐Ÿ™‚

This was where we found cleaner show and some gorgeous forest to give us a different background. Sometimes it’s worth it to venture down a path you wouldn’t usually consider in the search for a great spot!
