Actress Bo Martyn is a collector of fabulous vintage clothing, which added such a great flair to this summer-time photo shoot. Bo has such an old, romantic soul and her outfits compliment her so nicely.
In addition to being a clever and talented actress, Bo is also venturing into film making. I’m so excited to say that she and I will be working on a film together this year, with subject matter very close to my heart. She has such great taste that it makes me so eager to see what will become of this film.
All our images were created outdoors with natural light. While I love shooting in the studio, natural light has a spontaneous feel to it because nature sets up the lighting for you, and you get to play around with how you choose to use it. Check out these select shots from our photo shoot together.
(above) Bo said the vintage outfit reminded her of when Marilyn Monroe went to go entertain the troops. I thought the cast iron pan was a nice touch as it hinted at an old fashioned army base camp.
Savannah is one of those girls who looks famous no matter what she’s doing. She could non-nonchalantly drop her phone and pick it up and make you feel like you’re in a movie. You start looking around for a camera crew and then you realize it’s just Savannah being Savannah. It must be her Scorpio qualities since Scorpio’s tend to radiate sexiness with their every move.

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!
