I've been working with MiniGeeks for a while now to provide the handmade children's fashion line with professional photos for use in applications to all kinds of geeky conventions. Katy and her micro models are always a lot of fun to work with, and the dork in me is always curious to see what kind of fandom fashion mashup she's created.
In my time at Toronto consumer internet success story, Wattpad, I became good friends with co-founder Allen Lau and his wife Eva. When Allen and Eva started their own Venture Capital firm on the side, they were using a decent, but not exactly amazing, photo of them that I'd snapped at a random Wattpad party. I suggested that we could do much better with a proper shoot, and they took me up on it.
As Allen and Eva are never very far from their daughters, the shoot evolved into a combination professional / family photoshoot. It was good to have the girls around to lighten the mood since Allen and Eva are such naturally warm people.
