    That’s a great photo Johanne! Makes a wonderful poster.

  • Thank you Monika! You’re right, it does look a bit like a poster! :-)

  • Thank you! I spotted the place in June and kept it in mind just for this shoot, very secluded but intriguing.

    very cool Jo! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

  • Thank you Ursula! We really had a great time! Especially when I fell on my back like a giant turtle. I was carrying the equipment in a very large backpack and when I squatted to put the straps over my shoulders, the weight dragged me down on my back, and I could not get up again. I felt like a very stupid and very large turtle. Jade had to help me up! LOL!

    Oh this awesome, I love the pose, the coat, the colors, the background!
    Defrinitely a dancer’s stance and really reminds me of Michael Jackson, a fitting tribute!

  • Thank you Joanne! Spot on with the comparison with Michael Jackson. It’s exactly what I was thinking of when I saw her in this pose and yelled “Hold it!!!” :-)

    What a great shot! She feel so comfortable with you. Another instant fav.

  • Thank you Sis! You really should try! I’m sure that you would get even more from her than I did. As I mentioned to you previously, I always find that a mother’s love shows in her photos of her child, and Shelly with Abi are the perfect example of this!

    See – I told you, you’d do awesome!!
    Lovely location!! I love how her pose matches the location so perfectly!!

  • Thank you Vikram! I was really excited when I found that place and I knew right away that I would bring Jade there for a shoot. However, we were afraid that our fun would be cut short when we saw the two below walking up to us, maybe 20 minutes into the shoot…

    Fortunately, they were only looking for a group of older kids and came to ask if we had seen them. :-)

    How did I miss all these! I LOVE this one Johanne! As I have said before the location is awesome and I really love the pose/attitude of this one! Fantastic work you :)

  • Thank you Shelly! You always boost my confidence with your nice comments!

    You probably missed some of them because they were uploaded in hidden mode while I was filling out the descriptions in Notepad, adding the links and all, before making them available to the public.

    I just realized this morning that this prevents the new images from appearing on my contacts’ feed… Won’t do it again, unless it’s necessary! :-)

    – Johanne Brunet

  • Oh, and many thanks for the fav! I really appreciate it! :-)
