Before & After

Check out these before & after shots of me by Stela Licina.  This shoot was for Cherry Velvet’s upcoming holiday collection! Stela is so talented!  I just can’t get over it.  I love how she does hair and make up.  Very polished without too much product.

Diane Kennedy Photo Shoot

I had another photo shoot yesterday.  We were shooting for Diane Kennedy‘s upcoming season and catalogue.

First I headed over to Pin-up Perfection’s studio where the one and only Stela Licina did my hair and make up.  I can’t emphasize how amazing this girl is at what she does.  Afterwards, we all headed out to Steveston in Richmond, B.C. where we took photos on the wharf and beach.  It was not a very glamorous day… we saw a dead seal and I sweated profusely because it was smoking hot out! Regardless, we still all managed to have a great time!! 🙂


“Can I get you some fries with that?” Haha…



I love playing with Shimona’s props, accessories and wardrobe.  Isn’t this breakfast skirt amazing!!?  I love it.



I was lucky to work with well known curvy model Jihan Amer yesterday.  I met her for the first time a few months ago when we were both hired to do a runway fashion show for Forever Yours Lingerie.  She is such an awesome girl!  She gave me lots of tips and I learned a lot from her as always.



Here’s all of us after the shoot!  It was so hot out yesterday.  Thank god these kiddies set up a lemonade stand beside us!

Thank you to all of these ladies who made the day a success!!

Throwback Thursday

Throwback to my first ever photo shoot with {LUCY} Clothing and Forever Yours Lingerie.  This was so much fun!  At the time these two boutique stores in Langley, B.C. were owned by the same people, Sonya and Brian Perkins.  Today {LUCY} Clothing is owned by someone else but is still as great as ever.  Sonya and Brian are such great people and still run Forever Yours Lingerie.  If you haven’t been – you should!!  They have an amazing selection of bras and panties.  The customer service is awesome and you’ll leave with great fitting undergarments.

I have aways had…how shall I say?… a voluptuous chest. Haha!  I remember I was shopping at age 15 and just crying my eyes out because none of those bullshit La Senza bras would fit.  The girl at the counter whispered to me about this store and I haven’t been anywhere else since.

Sonya and Brian really helped me gain a lot of confidence.  At the time I did not feel very beautiful.  I always felt insecure about my size.  Modelling these first few times really helped me to see myself in a different way and for the first time in a long time I felt great!
