Wearing nothing but the flag.

Some of our clients are so patriotic, they literally wrap themselves in the Canadian flag. We had so many clients asking about having the flag in their session, I bought an 8 foot flag just for them. It’s been amazingly popular, and not just around Canada Day.

Flags are fun. They can be so versatile, so expressive. The fabric is slinky, the colors bright. It’s a prop that commands attention.

Some of the more emotional moments are when clients who have just gotten their citizenship come in. They have a huge personal connection to our red and white. It often means more than we can imagine.

Which is what our sessions are all about, moments of change. One client explained her session was her milestone marker for her moment. Her citizenship opened up new doors, started a new life. It was exciting to be on the threshold of so many opportunities. Her photo session, her images, they locked in all her memories of all that swirled around that time.

So, what memory would you like to wrap yourself into?
