This beautiful girl’s name is “Black is Black, Darkstar, Leeloo”…. or, Leeloo for short.   Sound familiar?  Her name comes from the main character in her dad’s favorite Sci-Fi movie, “The Fifth Element” with Bruce Willis.

Her mom contacted me wanting to capture something of a “Grand Central Park” type of vibe, with a  mix of some urban textures, within Ottawa’s beautiful landscapes.

One of the most beautiful places in the city that happens to deliver the best of both worlds is Commissionner’s Park, set beside Dow’s Lake.

Leeloo’s session took us along the boardwalk, onto the walking paths surrounded by the beginnings of Spring.

This rambunctious 7 year old is having some health challenges, but you wouldn’t know it to see her go!  She is responding well to her treatment plan, according to her mum.  You got this Leeloo!

Leeloo’s mom decided to have this image printed on canvas, which made my heart jump for joy because it was my favourite from the session; I feel it captured their bond and the gorgeous spring Ottawa day beautifully!
