portraits of samantha in toronto

I'd been wanting to meet Samantha for years after hearing how awesome she was from our mutual friend Christina. When I was looking for models for my bridal beauty lookbook, Christina sent me a message officially introducing us and recommending Sam for the project.  Luckily, she was on board and we found some time on a Friday morning in Toronto to meet up at Christina's shop, SOOP SOOP.

I did another soft and simple makeup look for Sam. This is one of my favourite looks for natural beauties who typically don't wear makeup. The trick is finding shades that complement a person's natural colouring, using a light hand, and blending like crazy. More details to come about this look and all the others when my beauty lookbook is ready later this year.

Sam, thank you so much for lending me your time for this project. You're even cooler than I'd expected, and I look forward to the next time we see each other!
