Jamil. Lifestyle.

October 17, 2009

I’ve always wanted an older brother. Always. Whichever way I huffed and puffed, I knew I probably couldn’t have one, after all, I was the first and only little one for my parents. But if I did, I would’ve wanted him to be like Jamil. Maybe he would’ve been too strict, shooed away boys, and had me smoking the Lebanese arghili pipe with him when I was 10, but it would all be worth it. I’m not complaining – I fell in love with his best friend. 

I promised Jamil some ‘GQ-style’ photos that are still laid back, and here is what we came up with. Mick came along too, and we had a blast strolling through the Lewis Estates golf course, hiding from flying golf balls, and running through a sprinkler (a big one!!)  I really tried to convince Mick and Jamil to pose for me in ‘same-sex couples portraits’ for my portfolio (after all, Mick and I are now living in Vancouver 🙂 ), but they did a pretty darn good job looking straight as a die! 

Jamil is one of the warmest, geniune, witty, and dependable people I’ve known. And his signature subliminal ‘nod’ is masterful – it would convince an Eskimo to buy snow. Wait for it, ladies … Jamil is intermittently available to be swept off his feet!

    Oh Katya, they could not look more like two straight guys hanging out. Love the pictures though. As always, amazing work.
