Hayley literally sparkled when her and her mom walked by! They were on their way to dinner but stopped for a mini photo shoot. Hayley had/has a lovely smile and looked soooo cute in her eye catching dress. However I struggled BIG TIME to capture more than a mere “snapshot”. They were quite patient while I tried several angles. I thanked them for their time wondering if I had something flattering. It wasn’t until I viewed the images on my laptop that breathed a sigh of relief!

My oh my, its a small world! When I introduced myself to Lindsey she said, “You
photographed my friend!” I’m always nice to everyone I meet but I panicked
because I post a dozen photos each week. As my mind was racing trying to
remember who I photographed, she showed me the photo of her friend Kamie.
Whew, I remembered/recognized Kamie. I took her photo a few days earlier.
After a couple shots I got this lovely image of Lindsey just before she met
her friends for dinner.
Svetlana was rushing to a birthday party but she stopped long enough to pose for a couple photos. Believe it or not, like most women on SidewalkRunway, Svetlana is not a model! She’s health care professional who likes to dress nice. Hmmmm… I wonder if the LaSenza bag contained a birthday present for her friend.
Natasha loves heels! She was headed to celebrate her girlfriend’s birthday.

Maryna was headed home after a fun filled afternoon. It was a pleasure to work with her. Her blouse was custom made but she added the decorative touches. She didn’t know the Italian designer’s name but she said her heels were super comfortable.

Min is new to Vancouver. Welcome! Her entire outfit is from Korea. When I asked
for the name of the designer, she didn’t know. However, that’s a common
response. I’m learning shopping in the West is different from shopping in Asia.
I’ve heard from several ladies that Asian cities are filled with tiny boutiques
with awesome outfits. In most cases the designer’s names are unknown.
Fashion and fitness are two lifestyle choices that are near and dear to me. I was pleasantly surprised when Katy mentioned she had a fashion blog and currently has a fitness blog. She was waiting for her friend so I had just enough time to take a couple photos and make notes about her outfit.

I would cite the quote of outstanding Russian writer Anton Chekhov:
“People should be beautiful in every way — in their faces, in the way
they dress, in their thoughts and in their innermost selves”.
I met Kristina on the way to work.
