Today was a really fun Shoot! I arrive at Pie in the Sky Studio for my 11:00am call time. We were shooting stills for a new TV show. The show was kinda like Highschool Musical meets teenage aliens.

The cast was extremely sweet and sincere! They even helped to steam each other’s wardrobe! It was fun to work with the wonderful Greg Van Riel again on tis assignment.

Couldn’t take any photos of the actual set, but here I am in the Makeup Room!

I love working with talented and passionate people! I had a chance to work with the incredible Arkan Zakharov on this dynamic Beauty Photo shoot.

And yes! he is as nice as everyone is saying 🙂

The whole team was super amazing! And thank you gorgeous Jordan (Chantale Nadeau) for letting me go wild on your hair!

The part of my job I love the best, is being able to share my gifts with my friends and family. Our good friends Ronnie and Connie ,got married this year on a beautiful September day at Knox College. Despite the 3 am Hair and Makeup start time  for the ladies and the Limo being 45 minutes late, the wedding played out perfectly for the beloved couple we call CRONNIE!

Connie wore a beautiful Bird Cage veil, with an elegant champagne wedding gown. While the bridal party was all dressed in a sophisticated burgundy.

Take a look at these beautiful memories captured by Victor Lee.

My busy Fashion Week is finally over, and I did not get a chance to see any shows this season.

I regret that I also missed out on a “Circus” themed Fashion show by Lucian Matis, and his After party.

However, I am so glad that I got to work with renowned photographer Arline Malakian again for an Exhibition.

Arline is Matis’s associate director and collaborator, it only makes sense to hold a Photography Exhibition along side Lucian’s Fashion Week After party, organized by the wonderfully talented Candice&Alison.

Here is a look at my first photo shoot with a real elephant!

A brief look at my collaboration with Arline Malakian’s Exhibition Last year, THE GAZE.

Working with Arline is a true inspiration, we all work as a team.  Painting sets, Wardrobe, Hair, Makeup, and even my fiance Craig (a chef by trade) made a wire head pice?

It’s Halloween again! And this year I had the privilege of doing Lauren’s Hair and Makeup again!

She loves all things vintage, this year she put on her Military Uniform, and we had fun with Pin up girl makeup and hair!

Thanks for the Allen’s Patties Lauren, and be careful driving with those dangerous lashes!

Last year’s halloween! Yes, we did vintage too 🙂

Only Holly, would let me try out a new curling iron in her. She has the most beautiful healthy, thick , and shinny one length hair I have ever seen.  I often tell her that its worth a lot of money , and she should be weary of people who want to snip it off  and sell it on a black market!

I love the way the hair turned out!  I can’t wait to use this curling iron on a Photo shoot.

So lucky to have her as my guinea pig. Holly did her own makeup in the photos above, she is incredibility talented. She has assisted me on a Me to We photo shoot in the past. Here is a look down memory lane. Photography by Richard Dubois.

Tanya is the sweetest girl ever! We recently did a Hair and Makeup Trial with her for her upcoming wedding. We were going for the classic combination of Modern Makeup and Vintage Hair. This actually was not the hair style she wanted for her wedding day. But we decide to have a little fun with her Hair and Makeup, because Tanya and Greg were actually doing their engagement photos right after the Trial.

The Engagement photos were shot by the incredibly talented Tara McMullen at the Distillery.

Here are a select few from that shoot! Very Chic!tg-121tg-111tg-2

My friend Karen first introduced me to Candice, her coworker, friend and neighbour. Candice and her family scheduled their very first portraits as a family. So she decide to give me a call to help her out with her Makeup.

It was Thanksgiving weekend, packed up my kit and was very excited to meet them. We got set up bright and early in her home in he beautiful Cornell neighbourhood in Markham.  I met her little cute as a button and very well-mannered baby boy, Cameron. And also Candice’s hubby, Scott!

I am so happy about how the outdoor portraits turned out!

P.S. Thank you Karen, for the Timmies!
