A Foggy Just Because Session in Cameron Lake, BC, Canada: Camilla + Ked

We’ve known each other since high school without ever officially meeting. Life took us in different directions, although we both knew about each other from mutual friends. In university, we both took a Psychology of Sexuality course and truly met there.

From then on, we felt an unexplainable bond. There were no walls, no awkwardness, and no filters with each other. Life continued to take us in contrasting directions, but random, synchronous events kept us running into each other again and again. Neither of us had ever been with another woman before, but a combination of the psychology course and our individual journeys made that into a gorgeous reality.

Ked is my rock, but she is also dangerously mischievous, a balance which offsets my anxiety and intense imagination. We just work, and we stopped questioning it when we lost all control to whatever pulled us together.

For this shoot, we had all planned to hike a mountain and get a perfect sunset shoot, but the island weather had different plans for us, and the heavy, lingering rain pushed us to choose Cameron Lake. Taryn thought it would be a gorgeous, gloomy location. It turned out to really represent the island: there was fog, darkness, and so much vibrancy in the forests surrounding the lake. It’s almost prehistoric, and it’s different. We like that.
