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.

I wanted to try my hand at a little more boudoir and was inspired by Dita Von Teese. She has the retro or vintage look all the while looking rather contemporary. If found a model who when posed the right way looks so much like Dita she could be her sister. We had a great time doing this shoot and hope that it will lead to more in the future.
Interested in doing a boudoir shoot with me that has a vintage twist to it? Just contact me. I’ll be thrilled to oblige.
In June, I had the priviledge of working with an amazing hair and make-up artist called Tomoko Hidaka and a clothing stylist called Camille Perreault. They managed to work together in order to help me make my vision of an outdoor vintage shoot come to fruition.

This was my first attempt at a vintage boudoir shoot. It went relatively well. I still have some learning to do in regards to posing the model better. The model was very receptive in following instructions and I hope to be able to attempt this type of photography again soon.
Hope you all enjoy. Let me know what you think. I would love to hear back.

The 1930s and 1940s was an era where glamourous shots where done with movie stars. Here I am again trying to recapture the mood and styling that took place back then all the while using some contemporary items to bring it into this century.
