A Captured Moment with Sisters: Maggie and Alex
The term “family” goes a long way as to how I connected with these two beautiful souls, Maggie and Alex. When I joined the University of Toronto Gospel Choir (UTGC), I was merely seeking a musical outlet, as I had finished my term as a cantor at my church. Little did I know, UTGC was not just a choir that had talented singers and musicians that would tantalize their audience with their songs. They were a faith-driven group who really put emphasis on preaching what they practiced. My Christian faith-journey grew alongside all who were part of this collective group and whom I can now call family.
One of my “sisters” from this group was Tsahai! As family does, we kept in contact through the years after we had taken a bow from the choir. As such, I was only humbled that she would reach out to me to capture the wonderful daughters, her and her husband, Peter, have raised. We re-posed a picture that they ritually took and then the session took off into a fun modelling session. Maggie and Alex were so great to work with and knew how to be their natural-selves! There was one shot I included when Alex had sneezed and Maggie burst out laughing. What more can you ask from sisters that can laugh with/at each other!
Hope you enjoy their portraits!
