Mother/Daughter Elegant Photoshoot

When people arrive in my studio, my ultimate goal is to give them an amazing experience where they will leave and have had a fun, exhilarating day.  I recently did a shoot whereby the mother only wanted pictures of her daughters taken.  I managed to convince her to join in the fun and have her hair and make-up done and have a few shots taken with her daughters.  I even went as far as to convince her to borrow one of my black gowns for some rather elegant portraits of herself.  Below are some of the results.

Edith Ross Photographer, Travels to Vienna

In November of 2013, Edith Ross Photographer travelled to Vienna, Austria.  What a beautiful city.  The architecture, the scenery, the cleanliness, the music, the ‘properness’ of it all left an impression on me.  Everywhere I turned there was beauty.  Please come and see some of the sights with me.

Vintage Inspired Wedding Shoot at Château St. Ambroise in Montreal

A few months back, I did a vintage inspired wedding shoot at Château St. Ambroise in Montreal with the wonderful Fanny Wong and MUA Kitty Mann,  Here are some of the results of that shoot.  The enitre shoot was conducted with ambiant light only.  So no flash, a high ISO and at times a reflector.  Enjoy the results.

As we women know wearing high heels all day long can get quite painful, so here is an image 'au naturel' in regards to shoes

The Making of a Glamour Shoot

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay is in the China Sea and is a Unesco protected area.  The cliffs and mountains of this beautiful area are simply breathtaking.  The movie Avatar (the floating mountains scenes) were filmed here and no wonder.  Movies, pictures, postcards, it’s very difficult to give this area justice.  However, In our travels I took many, many pictures of this area, and even though I’m pretty good with a camera, I was never satisfied with the result.  It is so much more beautiful to be there and smell the smells, and feel the warmth and colors and just feast on this beautiful area.

Typical fishing village anchored to the side of a mountain in Halong Bay. There are thousands of such formations. How they find where they live is beyond me as most formations look very similar.

Squid fishing boat. These fishermen go out at night and turn the lights on, on their boats. This attracts the squid.

Boudoir Photoshoot with a look at Before and After.

I recently did a photoshoot with a beautiful you woman.  Everyone believes that they can take a good picture with their point and shoot camera or their iphone’s, blackberry’s etc.  However,  the difference between a good picture and a great picture takes planning.  Make-up, hair, clothes, setting up the sceen, how do you want to be represented, and lastly post-production or retouching.  I wanted to show everyone how a little planning will get you the great shoot.  Check out the following:
