Before even speaking to Angelique, I wondered if she was from Paris. Once we started talking and I learned that she was in fact a parisienne, I was happy that my years of obsessively following French style blogs had enabled me to identify her style origins, even from a distance. Was it her perfectly undone hair, her timelessly chic clothing and tastefully chosen accessories, or just a general air of confidence and grace? I'd say it was of the above, mixed with (I am happy to report) a whole lot of warmth and charm. Angelique is a model with Orange Models as well as a brand new graduate student here in Toronto. We had a fantastic time working together and creating some new portraits for her book. Angelique, I wish you all the best with your studies and your career in modelling career. I have no doubt that you'll be successful in both endeavours.
I recently met up with model Markana of Orange Models for a shoot. It was such a treat to work with a new model who is already so gifted with posing and camera presence. Markana, I wish you all the best as you follow your dreams and I hope we get to work together again soon! Here are a few of my favourite images from our time together. Photography/makeup/hair: me; styling: both of us.
