By | Blog, Bridal | 3 Comments

I am so excited to share the news of  my new bridal makeup and hair agency-I Do! Beauty Co. I have had this idea in my head for quite sometime but the timing just never felt right.  But with how busy I have become with bridal clients and my personal life becoming more and more demanding I knew 2016 was going to be the year that I took the big plunge.  And here we are!  I Do! Beauty Co. has been my blood sweat and tears the last few months and I am so proud of this company and I…

BRIDAL TREND-FLORAL CROWNS

By | Bridal | 5 Comments

Floral crowns aren’t just for flowers girls anymore.  I have seen a huge trend with Bridal where the bride and even the bridal party all sport gorgeous headpieces adorned with perfectly bloomed flowers! Jessica Simpson ran with this trend for her little sister’s Ashlee‘s bridal shower.  Everyone in attendance made bohemian flower crowns to wear at the festivities. Here is a shot from a Bridal Editorial I worked on which was featured in Weddingstar Magazine. The model wore a bright coloured floral crown with ribbon details.  It made a statement without overpowering the whole look.  I really liked the deep…

HAPPY SUPERBOWL

By | Commercial work | No Comments

I haven’t done too many food commercials before but for some reason I just did a whole whack of them last month.   One was for Maple Leaf Prime Naturally Chicken Wings. It was an online promo to be released just before the Superbowl.  We all know how much saucy wings and football go together! This gig was an easy one.  It was just one guy so only a wee bit of grooming was required (you can learn all about Male Grooming from a previous post of mine found here——->Grooming).  The only curve ball thrown at me was the actor…

By | Throw Back Thursday | No Comments

Do you remember that super hot day in August this year?  Well I do and I felt like I won the jackpot that day because I was shooting a commercial in an indoor skating rink.  I was even sporting a toque while the mercury rose past 40 degrees outside! The commercial was for the Scotiabank Hockey Club and it featured their ambassador, NHLer and Montreal Canadian‘s Assistant Captain PK Subban. There was a drone on set to capture a bird’s eye view of PK playing hockey with a bunch of lucky kids.  Here are some behind the scene shots I took…

Here is what I love about this toothpaste: Has a dual-action silica system that polishes away surface stains to gently whiten teeth Claims to remove up to 80% of surface stains in…
