I did this session at the beginning of the year and I’ve been meaning to write about it (I’m blogging chronologically, you see!). Notably, when I asked about this wonderful woman’s motivation for doing the session, even though she has a fiance, she said it wasn’t for him, it was primarily for herself….Read More
Hello lovely friends!
I just finished a 4-day photography conference/workshop in Ontario with some of the best boudoir photographers in Canada and the US; then I have a few days to spend with my family in Ontario - both have been great, and I'm glad to be able to do a "hard reset" on life, goals, family & friends, and my creative practice…Read More
Okay, it's not really a boudoir singalong but humour me and pretend it's funny.
Women and nature; like the earth, women are the receptive - the fertile ground for the possibility of creation. The rhythms and cycles. How many of you notice the full moon when it's full? We harmonize with the moon….Read More
Let's talk about going outside of one's comfort zone in order to get more comfortable in our own skin. She booked her boudoir session for this reason - she was trying new things and entering a new chapter in her life; one of self care, being more outgoing, developing a new appreciation for her body, and exploring parts of her life and her history she hadn't explored before…Read More
Hi all my sweet friends and fans!
Not sure about everyone else, but the change of season hit me this year! I like to be at the will and mercy of the changing seasons - with spring always comes a fresh wave of ideas and a sort of clearing out of old stuff.Read More
I want to share some words from a post I made on Instagram recently, about my philosophy on boudoir photography and intimate portraits, so I apologize if you're reading this twice.Read More
I had a client recently say to me in an email, "sorry for all the hand-holding" regarding outfit choice consultation. It was an interesting comment because I think as women, we are taught to apologize a lot when asking for our needs or requests to be met....Read More
I have been meaning to blog this engagement session for some time now. As my couples know, I like to go on a little adventure for engagement photos - often venturing out to a sweet spot I've scouted weeks beforehand.Read More
I don't know what else to say? This boudoir session was seriously amazing. Not only is this woman totally freaking stunning, like the traffic-stopping kind, but she's also got a heart of gold. I mean, everyone does in their own special way, but this woman was not afraid to show it...Read More
Oh blogging, how I sit and overthink each and every blog post. See, it's only because I care about those who read the blogs. I know that you're probably reading this because you're thinking about doing a boudoir session, and I'm wondering what it is you'd like to know about a session....Read More
A boudoir session is for every woman - and it really amazes me the diversity I see in my clients in their ages, shapes, sizes, personalities, careers, values, etc. - there is no "mold" or "typical" woman who books a session. That's what I love, it's about the feminine spirit. And the feminine spirit isn't something you can trivialize through definition - it's poetic, it's a story - and it can't be reduced to categories.
I thought I'd pop in here to say hey to everyone, it has been a while and because I'm really shy sometimes I don't post.
So, let me give you a bit of an update...
A personal share moment...
Information travels, information travels faster, and in the age of sharing and social media, this is just part of our daily routine. It's not something we even think about, sharing our information.Read More
I wanted to post a little bit about Simone & David, who stole my heart. These two are just the kindest, most gracious people. Getting to photograph their wedding was a little look into their world, which I hope that I get to see more of as they build a life together and grow their union...Read More
While not a boudoir session, this beautiful woman messaged me because she wanted to commemorate a milestone birthday, her 30th, with some amazing portraits of herself. She had quite a few ideas which we talked about via email and over the phone, established a creative direction, nailed down a date and went on a mini adventure!Read More
Before you can effectively tell a story through images, you have to understand the story a little bit. This is why I love getting to know my clients, because it helps me to know what mood and vibe they want to create in their photos.Read More
I hear photographers say it a lot so I don't want to overdo it, but Lisa and Andrew are the sweetest couple. They have gentle souls, both of them, a loving sense of humour, and a tenderness with each other. Andrew is a gentleman, they have the kind of love where he would lay his coat over a puddle for her to cross.Read More
As I've mentioned before, I notice that every couple has a unique bond with one another, and together they create an intimacy that is never duplicated. How two people interact and create balance with one another is really special to watch and even more special to photograph....Read More
I love adventurous engagement photography sessions, and clients who trust me enough to let me take them to these locations. Melodi & Jordan live in Toronto, but have lived in BC also and have lots of friends and family here. They wanted their engagement photography session to be special, and wanted something nature-inspired vs the city dwelling of the GTA...Read More
Something a bit different, I've been wanting to share this boudoir session for a while but haven't gotten around to it. As you know, boudoir photos is an incredibly personal thing, and not every client allows me to share their boudoir photoshoot online. This is something so intimate, and I always respect a client's wish for privacy...Read More
