Styled Shoot | Olivia & Peyton

My cousin Erica sent me a message one night: “Hey, I know it’s short notice… but can you come to Kingston tomorrow? Oh and bring your camera.” It threw me off for a second but then she dived into details about how she wanted to have some nice photos for her hair styling portfolio. With my other cousin Olivia and her best friend Peyton, they came up from Toronto to be our wonderful models. Erica spent most of her day colouring, styling and even doing the make up before I arrived to do photos.

It was really hard to select my favourites, there were so many fantastic photos in the end!

Aren’t these ladies gorgeous?! My favourite quote from the day was from Olivia after one of us made a comment that her bra was poking out, “My bra was expensive, people need to see it.” Haha!


All photos have been taken by me (Jennifer Rapkins). If you require these photos for any reason, they must maintain the watermark logo or email to discuss licensing details including written permission from the model(s).

Candy Skin | Behind-the-scenes

It’s been years since I’ve been behind the camera from a videographer perspective. When I mentioned to my old high school friend and Director, Kyle, about a chance to work with him again he was happy to have me apart of the team.

A short film, Candy Skin, has been submitted into multiple festivals and we’re very excited of the success it has so far. Hiring professional actors and make up artist “On Scene FX” we were definitely on our way to creating something truly wonderful. Regretfully, I can’t show you everything I’d like without giving too much away. When the film is ready to formally be released I may update this.

I was in charge of behind the scene photography and videography. Today I am just sharing the photos with you all and can’t wait to share more with you later!

On Scene FX works on our main character

Close up of the incredible make up work on his hands, we’ll never tell you why! (until you see the movie, that is!)

One of our locations, an old barn with a lot of character. Also featuring Kyle, our director, in action!

Some other characters are being introduced!

Our main character undergoes some serious facial reconstruction while one of our other characters starts transforming into his character.

We have some slightly less bloody shots too!

With all sorts of Director shots, I’ll end with these!

I look forward to sharing more with you in the future. In the meantime, Enjoy!
