Butterfly baby bump

This time of year it can be hard to find locations outside of the studio that work really well for any session.
Mandy wanted something bright and vibrant in colour for her maternity session. I suggested the Butterfly conservatory. It is designed to look like a bright, sunny day, it's warm and dry and the plants make for a stunning backdrop. And it's a good thing we choose this place, as with wind chill, the day of our session was a very chilly one!
While Mandy did have her own gown, we also used one I offer in the studio as well (the blue gown) and the both looked amazing against the lush plants.

Did you know that a butterfly is symbolic for a beautiful transformation? Seems rather fitting for a maternity session!

Here are some of my favorite from our session!

Is a boudoir session right for you?

Ladies, I'm about to let you in on something.

Something you have probably told yourselves isn't true in the past.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

We have those moments where we f stare at ourselves in the mirror, examining every single tiny detail about ourselves and we judge and criticize and  often tell ourselves some pretty harsh and ugly things.

We may not do this every day, or FEEL this way every day, or every week for that matter. But at some point we have all been there. Felt so ugly it becomes the one thing we believe about ourselves for a while.


There are some many amazing, beautiful, stunning women out there who don't feel beautiful. Too many woman have self image problem and lack confidence in the way they look. And I think that is a damn shame! The thing about women is we are all beautiful and should beautiful being who we are. That is one of the reasons I love boudoir so much! Boudoir and glamour sessions have the ability to make someone feel amazing about how they look. I…

Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir.

Boudoir. 
It's exciting
It's inciting
And it's confusing and intimating all at the same time! 

If you are thinking about a boudoir I'm sure you have some pretty big questions on the top of your head. That's fine. I mean it's not everyday you are standing half naked in front of a perfect stranger. 


So you have questions... I've got answers.








Q: Boudoir. Pornography. What’s the difference?
A: Well for starters Boudoir is suggestive, while porn is... well you know. And you don’t have to be complete nude or revel anything at all when it comes to boudoir photographs. One of the most important things about being sexy is being confident. If you feel that way wearing jeans, by all means, wear jeans! Or a button down men’s dress shirt. Sure why not? Classy, suggestive, and flirty.

Q: Can you Photoshop my images?
A: If you would like to have say, stretch marks, a scar, that unwanted, embarrassing tattoo from when you were 16 removed. Sure that is do-able. If you want…

Preparing for you Autumn Sessions: 7 tips

Autumn is one of the most popular times of year for a variety of sessions, for obvious reasons. I mean, how can you not enjoy those lovely pops of colours. It's an amazing time as you get to really play up your wardrobe and mix and match with some awesome accessories for that crisp weather. I want you to make the most out of your session and here are some great tips on how to do so.




1) Make use of accessories and clothing that play up the "fall" feeling. For example, leather boots, cable knit scarves and comfy cardigans look amazing on the whole family and can really bring a picture to life. Tip: neutrals do really well in the fall against all that foliage. 
2)Timing is everything. Start paying attention to that shift in weather as summer melts into fall. Once the leaves start changing, call up your photographer and book a session. I know that I like to plan fall sessions, so chances are I've got a session ready for you.Typically October is the perfect time for your se…

My favorite photos

When you do something you love, it's not really work. We all have heard that saying. And for me it is really true. For those of you who have meet me in person, you how much I love what I do and deep my passion for photography runs.

Most people when they get home from work, kick of their shoes, put their feet up and forget about the day they had at work for those few hours before they head back to the office. They turn on the T.V, read a book, spend some time with the family. Any thing to take their mind off work. NOT ME.

Photography started as a hobby and I transitioned it into a business years ago. So for me, during my down, one of my favorite things to do is take off with my camera and work on a personal photography project. I have done lots of these in the past and am always finding something neat to work on. I believe it keeps me on my toes and gives me new and fresh ideas to introduce into the studio for my clients,

One of my favorite projects was a few years back. I as at …

A little Session with Picture Perfect Props

If you are a family in the Niagara Region and have small children, it is more then likely that you have heard of Picture Perfect Props by Mich. In fact, she is probably a household name for your family. Having been open for the past 8 years, I have worked with Mich a great many of times and have come to know her, not only as a business woman but as a friend as well.

Over the past few years, Mich and I have gotten together to a variety of different sessions together that have been offered to the public. One of our favorites is our outfit showcase session. We did this last year and had such a blast, we did it again this year. We draw a few different children varying in age to model some of the outfits, tutus, headbands and other products available in Mich's store in Welland. This year we have over 300 people enter the contest!! HOLY SMOKES!!

We always have fun during these sessions and so the families! Here are some of the adorable images we got during this years session.
