I first met Hannah in our shared hometown, Winnipeg, Manitoba, before she made the move to Toronto for theatre school. Moving to a city where you don’t know anyone is not easy, but so worth it, so I was very excited when Hannah made that dream a reality. Before this shoot, we hadn’t see each other for a few years, but it actually felt like no time had passed. There is an understanding that tends to bond us Winipeggers-in-Toronto. And there are many of us.
Hannah is poised, confident and curious about the world. We chatted about career plans and acting classes and of course, dating. I wanted to shoot her the way I see her, which is with a cool and youthful sexiness. So out came the body suit and a simple white bed sheet. I wanted to focus on mood and personality, and I don’t believe you need an elaborate setup to create striking images. We also popped outside into a cool little vinyard and took some beautiful shots of Hannah wearing a summery onesie. Check out some select shots from our shoot!
