Photo Shoot: Paris Meets Tokyo with Leeamor

by EkiuwaJ

Again Toronto has given me another beautiful location to shoot. Model Lisa Love gave this shoot an amazing foreign vibe with her cute outfit, which by the way worked perfectly with the setting. Toronto’s old city hall, took us to the past with its great architecture, coble-stone walkways, and gorgeous scenery. I cant wait to work again with Ms Love again in the future.
