Throughout the past year and a half, I've had the pleasure of working alongside fabulous fashion lovers in the Ottawa area. Interns are such an intrinsic part of a successful production, on set or at an event, they are the second set of eyes - tweeking everything to perfection, adding essence to the mood while fuelling the creative flow. Whether they "guest blog" or assist on set, it is always a pleasure to collaborate with them. Here are some fun facts about these die hard fashionistas, enjoy!

When did you first start shooting?
I think I got my first "camera" when I was 12 - it was 2 megapixels, so awful now, but I loved it. I used to force my sisters into these gawdy fashion shoots, haha, but it was so much fun! I think I was having so much fun, I didn't realize I was developing such a lovely skill and art form.

I love the downtown core: I love the people, the beauty and the food (I'm a sucker for beaver tails). I spend a lot of my time exploring that area, usually with my camera, and enjoying every minute of it.
