I've been dreaming of doing a session like this for a while now, so it has been pretty incredible to see it come to life like this. Marissa Prosper is a first generation Dalhousie Law student, paving the way for future generations and ready to inspire real change in her community. She is seen here showcasing her own hand-made traditional Mi'kmaq jewelry and light pink ribbon skirt. The scenery of the Tangled Garden in Grand-Pré pay beautiful homage to her Indigenous heritage and incredible connection with nature. A huge thank you to Jess from Wedding Whisperer for being my creative second set of eyes for this one, and making sure my vision really came to life.
