The haunted houses
I took the four first photos near Bathurst, New Brunswick. The house that we see in the pictures has been abandonned for a while, and the weather outside seemed to be perfect for a spooky-dark photo shoot. I went there with my friend Jimmy who served as a model at the same time. Another picture of this series was taken at another location, it was at another abandoned house in Madawaska, Maine. That house wasn't that old, and it was actually surprising to see that it was abandoned since it was a huge house and people that lived there must have had a lot of money. The last set of pictures were taken at an abandoned house in Ste-Anne-de-Madawaska, New Brunswick. I absolutely love those kind of photo shoots, and try to work on some whenever I have free time. Here are a few pictures I got from those three photo shoots:
Look for the other pictures in this set to appear from time to time on the blog, or if you are eager click here to be taken to her blog where they can be found.
