Their infectious energy and positive attitude made some fantastic shots. The dynamic between the three was electric and I couldn't help but smile behind the lens. The shoot was as inspiring and exciting as the music they created together. Their ability to bring the creative vision to life was simply remarkable, and it was an honour to be a part of the process. I had such a great time capturing the personalities of these talented and dedicated individuals.
