‘Show me your best friend and I’ll tell you who you are,’ they say. Andrea & Olivia are a breath of fresh air, to each other and every breathing soul around them. A fountain of light, youth, fresh perspectives, infectious laughter, and undeniable charm. What are sweetest memories made of? The little moments. Hooking arms, jumping over puddles together, gluing eyelashes, sharing silences, burgers, secrets, beers, dance floors, and dreams.

Olivia is off to pursue a dream job & adventure in Costa Rica in a few weeks… and I was so excited they asked me to document their friendship with a lifestyle portrait session in Edmonton! We started at Andrea’s chic apartment, then took a stroll on Whyte Avenue, and ended up at Pour House, a cozy lounge for a perfect pint.

    WOW thank you from the depths of my heart, which are ever growing and expanding because of meeting people like you Katya! Such a memorable and now immortal afternoon love and friendship! Your sparkling spirit’s uplifting impact is definitely seen in all the photos you take, and your gorgeous giggles had me and Andy feeling truly special and understood.

    Adoring all facets of the experience and looking forward to your future moment creations and captures,

    I love how this series touched on the many local places that Olivia and Andrea’s friendship has grown over the years-Pho houses, tea shops, bus stops, getting all sexy at home…
    two beautiful women, captured beautifully by Katya.
