A Little Art In The River Valley

 

So I met this amazing lady  Hayley Wright when I started my new job a little over a year ago, she is someone with a huge heart and is also an absolutely stunning artist.

She may be a little too fond of cats and a tad to accident prone to be considered normal, but she makes up for it with her shockingly beautiful artwork ( find it here ). Originally from Toronto, then a stint in Vancouver, she is now here in Edmonton. While living here in good o’l YEG her Fashion Illustration has been showcased in articles in the Edmonton Journal, magazines, as well as other publications. 

When she asked me to take some photographs for her new website I absolutely jumped on the opportunity, after all I needed a logo or two and figured I’d sucker her in to trading some photos for some of her crazy amazing art talent. In the end she did not disappoint! I now have a beautiful logo and even one for my facebook page.

In normal Hayley fashion she was definitely a little late for the scheduled shoot. Though she had her makeup artist Ashley Habjan’s parallel parking skills to blame for that one, supposedly she can park just fine… but just when no one is looking. For the shoot we ended up alongside Edmonton’s river valley and were able to catch some amazing light, which as a photographer was a dream to shoot in. 

 
 

This was definitely one of those shoots that just fell together so well as we went about spot to spot as I clicked away with my camera as the light was shining down through the sky beautifully, and Ashley made her extra pretty with her makeup skills. 

If anyone is looking for an absolutely gorgeous piece of art work for their home or office, Or if you're looking for a commissioned piece I highly recommend Hayley's work at Paper + Ink

If looking for a make up artist for Weddings, Grads, or Fashion event you can contact Ashley Habjan via email (AshleyHabjan@hotmail.com) or visit her Facebook page (here)
