I was recently given the opportunity to be Sean Casey’s photographer for the day. Sean Casey is the Liberal MP for Charlottetown, PEI. On Canada Day he helped welcome new citizens to Canada during the Citizenship Ceremony at the PEI 2014 Celebration Zone in downtown Charlottetown. I spent the morning with him capturing moments with happy new Canadian citizens as well as some other important Islanders.

The other day I heard that someone was looking for a photographer to take their head shots. I was obviously interested and thought that this is a perfect opportunity to post photos from a shoot I did with Justin Simard this past fall…. I’d been meaning to post them anyway!
Justin chose to do the shoot on location at his place in Valleyfield and I agreed, it’s a beautiful spot. The weather was great, albeit a bit chilly (you can’t tell though!). It wasn’t just Justin and I at the shoot; Ellen, my sister, Justin’s fiancé, came out to be my assistant and their neighbour’s horse, Phoenix, kept us company as well.
Here are some of the hilarious outtakes as well as a couple final shots that Justin chose.
Justin has a range of facial expressions…
Most of which didn’t make the cut…
There were obviously many laughs had
Phoenix wanted in on the action

Maybe a bit too dramatic??
