This summer I had the pleasure of working with such a laid back bride and bridal party! She is originally from Holland, as well as many of her guests. They were a lot of fun, and they all looked beautiful!
I recently did hair for Christi’s wedding at Vineland Estates Winery here in the Niagara Region. She went with a loose curl side bun. The rest of the bridal party also had some sort of updo to fit their style. Photos by Jesse James Photography.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to work with one of my favourite photographers, Stacy Hayward of Stacy’s Creations Photography. Stacy holds boudoir marathons a few times a year and we always have a blast doing these. The women are so great to work with and it’s even better to see how excited they are to be pampered and have their pictures taken. Here are a few of the shots Stacy came up with and of course all of […]
I recently had the “itch” to do some hair and makeup for a photoshoot. Having a photographer boyfriend (Jesse James Photography) really makes things easy! We came up with a vintage-inspired theme and asked Wendy from Wendy Alana Photography in Brantford to come along and shoot with us. We found a fantastic model who went above and beyond especially in the minus 10 weather! Here are a couple shots from Jesse:
With all of the rain we have had over the last few weeks, it’s been really hard to get outside and do a photo shoot. Solution? Do an in-studio shoot instead. The issue with in studio opposed to on location is coming up with creative ideas. While doing a replica of an old hollywood shoot isn’t exactly fresh or new, it is to us. Jesse (Jesse James Photography) and I decided to put our ideas together and see what we […]
I’ve been wanting to do a promotional photo shoot for quite some time now. Of course, Jesse from Jesse James Photography was in as well! I love having my very own personal photographer :). I had a vision of having 6 different girls in wedding dresses so I put it out there asking for volunteers. Thank you so much to all of the girls who volunteered- especially with the extremely cool weather we ended up having! Melanie from Lush Florals […]
A little while ago Jesse James Photography and I ran a contest on Weddinggirl.ca for a free boudoir photoshoot giveaway. The winner of the contest was Vanessa, a gorgeous girl with a very fun personality. Being a mom of three young children, Vanessa is often too busy to take time for herself. Participating in a boudoir photoshoot is one of the best experiences you can do for yourself. On a normal basis Vanessa doesn’t wear much makeup but that doesn’t mean she […]

Karma- “the law of cause and effect.” It’s simple enough be a good person, do good things and something good will happen to you. Of course on the other side if your not a good person, what go around comes around. I try to live my life knowing that karma exists and I believe it does. For example, I’ve been helping someone get into the world of photography. Jesse and I have been offering photoshoots, advice, and even an assistant job for […]
I’m not one to get my nails done professionally. The few times I have gone to get fake nails the pressure hurt so bad I don’t think I will go back again. I have gone to get manicures and just have my nails painted but let’s face it that’s a lot of money to pay for something I can do myself. The exception for me is a “spa manicure”. Everything about it just feels so good! The hand massage, the hot wax, it’s awesome! But […]
