The nice part about being an honorary “Halifax photographer” is that even when I’m not there, Halifax comes to me. Having traveled to the Maritimes so often, my name gets around, and when models travel or move to Toronto, we almost always get together for photo shoots. Such is the case with Chelsea Rae, who moved to Toronto last year. Despite us never having met each other in Halifax, we shared enough mutual friends that it was a no brainer that we’d work together last summer.
Although Chelsea isn’t as comfortable on the beach as she is indoors, she still indulged my desire to take advantage of the summer weather and warm lake temperatures at Hanlan’s Point Clothing Optional Beach on the Toronto Islands.
Chelsea wore some random pieces I’ve collected over the years that matched her overall style — all black everything all the time. 😂
She’s since moved on to the next phase of her life in Montreal, but we squeezed in another (more colourful!) shoot before she left, which you’ll see here soon.
