Aah, beach photoshoots! I’m a beach bum at heart and I love being on the beach, both for pleasure and work. There’s something so freeing about walking bare foot, putting your feet in the sand and having sun and wind caress your skin.

So I was very excited when Laura from Go With Your Gut decided she wanted her next photoshoot to take place at the beach. We’re quite lucky in Toronto where we have several lovely beaches so we didn’t have to travel far. Bluffers Park in addition to a big beach has wild, tropical looking greenery, which was also a beautiful background for photos and perfect for Laura’s brand.

You can tell she belongs at the beach!

Stunning views & tropical greenery

How lovely to work again with Raj Girn!

Raj is a multi-award winning media and events entrepreneur, brand strategist, marketing consultant, confidence coach and entertainment personality. This photoshoot was all about her new branding and new website. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since Raj’s last photoshoot with us - time truly flies!

I always ask people to bring at least one white clothing item to their photoshoot. A white outfit is crisp and fresh, it will never go out of style and it’s a perfect canvas to show off your personality.

This time around, I finally got to photograph Raj in white!

When you love what you do, you want to do it all day, every day.

I could honestly photograph Raj for hours on end. The work our whole team did was so passion-driven. From incredible make-up by Shirley Wu to the help of Raj’s friend, designer Allia Qureshi.

Starting Summer with Personal Stylist Christie Ressel

It finally feels like summer is coming to Toronto. I don’t know about you but I’m always beyond excited to jump into summer clothes. So excited in fact that I usually forget about sunscreen the first day of nice weather and get completely burnt. It’s the same story this year and I’m as red as a lobster as I’m writing these words.

Together with Christie Ressel, we were waiting for some time now to finally photograph summer clothes! I loved every outfit Christie brought to this photoshoot. It always amazes me how all of Christie’s clothes go together since she’s a big fan of the capsule wardrobe concept.

There is no reason to put off wearing items that make you feel special and that ARE special. They’ll put an extra pep in your step, make you feel good, and will create some really beautiful looks in your wardrobe. If you feel they are too “dressy”, pair them with casual items in your closet to make them daytime appropriate
— Christie Ressel

Isn’t it amazing how the right outfits make you feel ON? Confident, energized, capable, inspired? Purchasing only outfits that make you feel your best is a big part of Christie’s wardrobe philosophy. It’s so important to bring those outfits to your photoshoot!

When I asked Christie which city would represent her brand well, she answered without a doubt: Paris and London.

Even if you don’t live in your Ideal Brand City, you can still find lovely places that have a similar vibe. It’s exciting and so fulfilling to find those little gems. The cafe in the photos below was actually created by a couple who lived in Paris for years and decided to bring a piece of Paris to Canada.

If you enjoyed Christie’s outfits, like her style and fashion and philosophy, head over to her website or YouTube channel, you’ll find so much inspiration there.
