During the coldest of snowstorms last winter, it made perfect sense to have a bikini shoot in a sauna.

In a lovely mansion north just of Toronto, model Jennifer Steele posed in Spring/Summer 2011 swimwear trends, including a bikini by German-Canadian swimwear designer Katharine Demarchelier paired with a vibrant scarf by Italian fashion powerhouse Missoni.

Another look was pulled together by color accents, including a string bikini by New York based designer Mara Hoffman for RAC. The hot pink strings of the patterned bikini paired with a matching shade of neon toe polish demanded that makeup take a backseat to the loud pops of pink.

By keeping the smoky eye void of harsh lines and dark brows, making lip color bright but sheer and using a highlighter with a dewy finish, the makeup helped keep things subtly glamorous.

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.

This a beauty creative I did early this summer with my good friend Richard Dubois. I remember thinking I can’t pass up this opportunity,to work with such a beautiful face!

Even if it means doing the creative after a full day of working on the ME to WE catalogue.

This was my first time working with this beautiful model named Santa @ Chantale Nadeau. Her natural beauty inspired me to bring out her best features, and enhancing the natural texture in her hair. I kept her skin dewy and all the makeup I used was cream based. Absolutely NO POWDER!!! The look turned out to be  translucent, delicate, and fragile, reminds me of Faberge Eggs. I am so happy about the way this photo turned out! Stay tuned to see the 2nd photo shoot I did with Santa. You won’t recognize her!!!
