Laura De Sanctis

Our last photoshoot with Laura De Sanctis, Nutritionist at Go With Your Gut, was super cozy, sweet & sexy!

Laura has just launched her “Shift Happens” affirmation cards. They are a wonderful tool to help shift our mindset, to heal and establish self love. They are so much more than pretty photos and cards.

This year has been a year of lessons... a lot on letting go and trusting the universe. Letting go of people, things and circumstances and creating space for the better. I created Shift Happens affirmation cards and journals to help people holistically heal and make a shift in their lives. Many times we cling to certainty, we cling to thoughts, feelings or people in response to fear. The body always responds to how we think and feel.

When you create space, shift your thinking, and let go of negative thoughts, your body will respond. It all starts in the gut. I challenge you to make the shift.
— Laura De Sanctis
The moment you realize your worth, you shift. You attract new energy and new people who respect your worth. It all starts with you.
— Laura De Sanctis

I couldn’t agree with Laura more!

One of my New Year resolutions was to photograph more fashion, so I was thrilled to start working with Veronica! I felt very inspired when she came with wardrobe ideas to her consultation. She’s also such a sweet soul.

Veronica is our subscriber, which means she benefits from regular photoshoots. She wanted the vibe of this photoshoot to be edgy, minimalist and modern!

I'm thrilled to share with you the first photoshoot of 2019 with another wonderful woman. Kim is intelligent, successful and poised, not to mention beautiful!

The photoshoot was in part a gift to herself. Kim wanted both corporate photos and personal, timeless portraits that she and her loved ones could cherish forever. A photoshoot is certainly one of the greatest gifts! It’s an empowering experience of re-connecting with yourself…

Winter Favorites

PureStudiosAgnesKieszMerryChristmas.jpg

A lot of us have a love-hate relationship with this season. I’m no different. I love the atmosphere of Christmas, dreamy snow, mulled wine in restaurants, cozy sweaters. But I also have a hard time with shorter days, less sunlight and being lazy and unmotivated. Here are some of my recent favourites which have helped me enjoy this winter much more!

  1. Red Parka

    I love dressing up in winter, but when it’s quite cold, there’s nothing like a great parka. It’s a must for me when I’m travelling, makes me feel safe, comfortable and warm. This Calvin Klein model has plenty of practical pockets. When I’m travelling, I always want to have my documents, my wallet and phone in an inside pocket.

2. Lavender Goodies: Sleepy Body Lotion & Pure Couture Soap

If you know me well, you know I’m obsessed with good quality lavender products. They are a big part of my bedtime routine. I love using the lavender soap from Pure Couture for my evening shower and afterwards Sleepy Body Lotion on my body. After this ritual, I usually fall asleep in minutes :)

3. Pearl Ear Muffs & Gloves

Cute accessories can brighten a dark winter day. I particularly like these ear muffs because they keep my ears warm without messing up my hair!

4. Photo of the Season: Sexy Sweater Weather

I’ve been wanting to take some sensual photos just for myself for a while now. But as it often is with those things, I kept delaying it. The main reason was gaining a few pounds, as I always do when fall starts. Then I decided I don’t need to look perfect to be happy with a photo of myself. Once the photos were done, my only regret was not having them done sooner.

5. Quote: Women should be Brave, not perfect.

There’s a lot of famous quotes from Billie Jean (one of my favourite tennis icons), but this one is very special to me. Every single day I see women stopping themselves from marketing themselves, from speaking out, from putting themselves out there simply because they’re not perfect (in their head).
If we want to change that for our and future generations, we have to be brave. We have to consciously choose where we put our focus. Nobody will do it for us, we have to do it for ourselves. Seeking validation is pointless because if you’re doing that, you’re already giving your power away. Why not instead focus on what good we can create, how we can become masters of our craft and how we can have plenty of fun along the way.

I hope you enjoyed my winter favorites! Before we know it, it will be spring again.

Christmas in Europe + Zurich Travel Guide

I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. It’s been my first Christmas in Europe in 7 years. It’s really amazing how time flies. My sister moved to Zurich in the meantime, so this beautiful Swiss city was the first stop of our trip. We then travelled to Poland, my home country, to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.

My work took me to Ottawa few weeks ago where I had the pleasure of photographing Chelsea, a fashion blogger. I was super excited for this photoshoot and even freezing temperatures below -20 C in Ottawa didn’t spoil my mood…

Vibrant reds and blues were accent colours for Zenia’s Branding Photoshoot. Zenia is the Owner of a boutique floral studio and her designs are just as classy and timeless as her style.

The Art of The Headshot

The Art of The Headshot

A great headshot is very important to every professional. A series of experiments by Princeton psychologists Janine Willis and Alexander Todorov reveal that all it takes is a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger from their face (!). A photo can say a thousand words and every professional needs to put the right image out there.

Fall Favorites

Fall Favorites

Fall is in full swing! I won’t lie, the transition from summer to fall is never easy for me. I simply love summer. I have to admit though, Canadian fall is a true charmer and she knows how to seduce us. Once the colors start changing, it’s hard not to fall in love.

Here are my Fall Favorites that are helping me enjoy our beautiful fall more!
