Mother/Daughter Elegant Photoshoot

When people arrive in my studio, my ultimate goal is to give them an amazing experience where they will leave and have had a fun, exhilarating day.  I recently did a shoot whereby the mother only wanted pictures of her daughters taken.  I managed to convince her to join in the fun and have her hair and make-up done and have a few shots taken with her daughters.  I even went as far as to convince her to borrow one of my black gowns for some rather elegant portraits of herself.  Below are some of the results.

Citta Magazine published photoshoot

Back in September and October, I had the wonderful priviledge of working with one of the editors of a new magazine called Citta as well as two wonderful models who were up to trying almost anything to obtain beautiful German Burlesque inspired images.  We drew inspiration from many sources including Ellen Von Unwerth.  Our objective was to produce images that were compelling and that told a story of the burlesque world of old.  The models Marie Doroftei and Eloise Bélanger were wonderful.  Marie who is also a hairdresser did all the hair and makeup you see in the images.  A great job was done by all and some or all of the following images were published in Citta’s launch which took place at the end of October 2012.  Check out this wonderful magazine which was launched to bring together artists from Montreal the the world and artists from around the world to Montreal. http://www.cittamagazine.ca/

Family Portraits

I recently had the honour and priviledge of working with a wonderful family and creating some everlasting memories for them.    I love these guys.  They are absolutely wonderful and have the cutest kids possible.  Making them look good was not too difficult as they are already beautiful on their own.    I hope that you appreciate some of the following images.
