Summer Favorites

It’s been such a beautiful and busy summer so far!

Canadian summer is simply amazing and I always want to make the best of it. It’s always a challenge, because on one hand I want to enjoy it for myself and on the other hand, it’s truly the perfect time to create stunning imagery for people, so I’m also very busy with work. So even tough I don’t normally drink coffee, this summer I’ve been starting pretty much every day with not one but two cups of coffee or green tea matcha!

Here are some of my favorites so far this lovely summer.

  1. Southwest Ontario

I think it’s so important for creative professionals to take the time to get inspired. The reason behind our family getaway to Southwest Ontario was exactly that. I’ve never been to this part of Ontario, but Krystle’s Southwest Ontario Travel Guide made it so easy! We started our trip by visiting Bonnieheath Estate Lavender & Winery, then we spent a day at Point Pelee Provincial Park, we also had a great time in Leamington, Amherstburg, countless wineries and beaches in the area. I don’t think I need to add the house we stayed at was beyond stunning. I hope to do more photoshoots here for sure.

2. Little White Dress

White cotton or linen dresses are simply the best in the summer. They make our tan look stunning, they easily go with every accessory and they photograph beautifully. My love for white means of course I have way too many white dresses, but I simply can’t resist to get more…

3. Monsieur Big Mascara

In the summertime, all we need is some mascara and lip gloss. I’ve been struggling to find a good mascara that works for me for some time but this one has quickly become my favorite!

4. Art of Marina Kimono

Meeting and working with Art of Marina meant finally seeing her products in person. I’m not an online shopper but when I can see a quality product, actually feel it and touch it, I can become a loyal client. Marina’s kimonos stole my heart (I’m hardly the first one!). This cashmere one feels incredible against your skin, I love throwing it over a swimsuit when I’m ready to chill by the pool after a hard day of work.⁣

5. Formal Dress

Clients ask me all the time where to go shopping before their Personal Branding Photoshoots. My top answer is always Simons. In addition to a great variety of styles, the clothes are really good quality. This dress is the perfect example of why Simons is my favorite store. It’s elegant and timeless (finding a summer dress with long sleeves is not easy!), it also fits like a glove.

6. Prayer Beads & Mugs from Decor by Christine

Some time ago I had a chance to work with a great Interior Designer Christine Da Costa. Christine brought such amazing photoshoot accessories from her online store. I had to get prayer beads and mugs for myself, they are such a beautiful but also soulful addition to any home!

Toronto Realtor Lara Stasiw

This photoshoot’s motto could have been “less is more”.

Meet Lara Stasiw, a Toronto Realtor with great style! It was a pleasure to work with this girlboss. We’re both lovers of organic, minimalist style, so it was an effortless working experience from the start. Black and white with fresh touches of green and pink was the timeless palette for Lara’s photoshoot.

As with every Branding Photoshoot, the goal was to show Lara's professional persona and style. Lifestyle photography done in a tastefully decorated property is always a great idea for realtors. When choosing props, we kept in mind Lara's brand colours in order to create a very consistent look.

Interior Designer Christine Da Costa

Meet lovely Christine of Decor by Christine - she’s an experienced Interior Designer and self-proclaimed glamamama! Christine is one of the most energetic clients I’ve ever had and her happiness really translates through the photos.

In addition to offering interior design services, Christine also has an online store on her website with accessories hand picked by her! I fell in love with mugs, blankets and prayer beads she brought to the photoshoot and I couldn’t resist to purchase them for myself.

Christine’s motto is “decorate as you dress”. I love that because her style is nothing short of amazing. She approaches a room like a woman’s outfit: buy great, timeless pieces that have longevity and accessorize with less expensive items! “I’ve always loved how Fashion intersects with Interior Design and frankly I cannot get enough of both!”

A couple of weeks ago I worked with the fabulous photographer Agnes from Pure Studios to take some professional photos of me & I just got back from her studio after the Reveal. I couldn’t be more ecstatic over the images she was able to capture of me. The interior design industry is all visual and that includes pictures of yourself. I am my brand so damnit I better look good, right? With any service company you are basically representing yourself and what your company stands for!
