I’ve known the Bella ladies, Melissa and Tina, since their store opened way back in 2008. No, I don’t shop there, but the cafe I frequented at the time (The Bohemian Kitchen), was also where they went for coffee and lunches. And eventually, I got to know them. I’d shot their portraits a while back and some store shots. It was time for a fresh set of photos of them and their store. So they contacted me.
Melissa and Tina are terrific ladies. Very laid back and ever cheerful. It was fun to come in to their store early one day in June for the session. They make it so easy. We did a few shots of them together, and I suggested individuals as well. In the end, they liked those best, and that what went on their site (www.mybella.ca).
All shots that day were made with the Fuji X-T1. The portraits were done with the 60mm f2.4, and for store shots I used the 18mm f2.
