Today I got to model for Diane Kennedy and Cherry Velvet!  It was so much fun.  We were shooting at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver, B.C.  It was a gorgeous day and the location was beautiful!  Many more photos to come…

Port Coquitlam Show & Shine

Today me and my fam jam hit up the Port Coquitlam Show & Shine and envied all the cool, classic cars.  Apparently I am a Chevrolet girl.  I loved all the Corvettes!

But what the heck PoCo…where were all the pin-up girls!?  I would have loved to pose beside some of these babies!  IMG_0881.JPG

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.

Fashion Inspiration: Zooey Deschanel

I have a major girl crush on Zooey Deschanel!  She’s such a babe.  I even got bangs because of her.  Also, after much investigation I found out that Zooey is also my husband’s celebrity crush!  So yeah – we both have good taste in women apparently. LOL!!

But seriously, how cute are all these outfits?!  I love the retro vibe.

I noticed that a lot of her clothes come from ModCloth and J. Crew.  She’s always wearing fun and quirky pieces that totally match her personality.  Too bad I don’t have some extra money to go shopping!

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!!

Cherry Velvet photo shoot!

Today was so much fun!  Diane Kennedy who designs Cherry Velvet dresses invited me back to model.  Shimona Henry of Pin-up Perfection Photography was taking & directing the shots and Stela Licina did my amazing hair and make up.  Christine Barham was there hanging out too!  Both Stela and Christine have modelled for Diane as well.

Shimona’s new studio is so awesome!  When I first met her a couple years ago she was working out of an extremely tiny, tiny space on East Hastings in downtown Vancouver.  I’m talking small people!!  Since then she’s had a few different locations but for the next two years she’ll be settled into her new spot.  The new location is set up in the basement of her house.  There’s plenty of room for wardrobe, make up, Shimona’s office, props and backdrops.

I truly love working with ladies.  It’s a fun and collaborative experience and I definitely enjoy dressing up every now and then- especially since I became a Mom!

Here are a few behind the scenes selfies I took today.  The actual shots will be on here eventually.

Wanna lick my cone? lol I love all Shimona's props! @pinupperfectionphotography

Pin Ups & Planes

A few weeks ago I was luckily enough to model for my favourite clothing company, Cherry Velvet.  I’ve been modelling for the designer, Diane Kennedy, for sometime now.  I even worked for her in Sales & Marketing before I had my baby.

It was so fun to get out of Mommy Mode and play dress up.  The dress I am wearing will be available in approximately 6 weeks.

Need a new little black dress? Check out the new Cherry Velvet dresses! 🙂 @cherry_velvety #pinup #cherryvelvet
