Lake Ontario, Canada

It was was one of those cloudy beach days where it was impossible to tell where the sky ended and the water began. A day that invites slowness, introspection and breath.

We met at the water’s edge early, digging our toes deep in the sand with only the call of the gulls and rhythmic lapping of waves for company.

It was one of those portrait sessions that unfolds quietly while frame by frame, filling your soul.
