I was really looking forward to a day with the Schultz sisters. I first met them at the Dine for the Cure fundraiser a few months earlier, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to capture their timeless talent and youth.
I would have loved to say that I was the one ‘playing it by ear,’ but Samantha and Emily were the ones who did, literally! My favorite moments of the shoot came when I found gorgeous tall grasses of St. Albert Botanical Gardens, and motioned them to take turns ‘hanging out’ there with their guitar and percussion. I crouched, breathless, as they improvised a duo… Right there, in the tender setting sun.
The Schultz sisters are magical. I’ve never seen sisters smile at each other so hearily … so lovingly. As if there is a tiny secret exchanged every time they do. Check out their amazing music at www.samanthaschultz.com!
