      Boudoir is for Everyone!

      It’s empowering! It doesn’t matter who you are or why you want to do it. Even men can book a  session! We’ve all carried different stories. In the midst of life’s chaos, it’s perfectly fine to acknowledge your worth. Being confident is beautiful and sometimes, we need to reassure ourselves we still got-it-going-on. It’s fun! […]


      Sexy is Slippery When Wet

      Our studio looks like a Hollywood FX shoot. Water rains down on her slippery skin, splashing before it gathers into streams racing down over the curves of her body. It reaches the pond at her feet, creating ripples that disturb her reflection, giving it its own life. Flashes pop, electrifying the air, revealing not just […]


      This May Sound Odd, But here is what I want. . .

      This May Sound Odd, But Here Is What I Want. . . You might be surprised how often we hear that phrase.

      What Expectant Moms Are Doing With Their Tummies.

      What Expectant Moms Are Doing With Their Tummies “I am sorry I never got professional photographs of my pregnancy.” That is one of the biggest regrets my clients mention upon seeing our expectant mom display prints.

      When Being Nude Isn’t Being Exposed.

      When Being Nude Isn’t Being Exposed. “ I was photographed nude yesterday.” Is a conversation stopper, my clients have had fun with. They slide the comment in innocently during a pause in a conversation with friends. It always has the same effect. Each person at the table imagines what being nude is to them, usually […]

      Our Client’s Journey

      She nervously asked, “What can I expect?” A pretty good question that nearly everyone asks. I have been refining the experience she will have for over 40 years. It is transformative and exciting. Everyone is surprised how quickly the nerves fade away! When you first reached out to us something in our conversation connected, gave […]


      Not Real Heels – Body Painted Women

      Not High Heels – Body Painted Women! I love body painted women. My clients are pretty thrilled too. For many years we have created some spectacular body painted art. Not this yet though.

      Is Body Painted Woman Still Nude?

      Is A Painted Lady Nude? Body painting is having a very sheer second skin covering your nude body. When the art is finished the whole body could be covered or bits of skin might still peek through. When you look into the mirror you can see the transformation. So are you nude anymore? The most […]


      The Canadian Photographer Of The Year Is Me!

      The Canadian Photographer of the Year Is Me! This is so exciting for so many reasons; many of those reasons are not even mine. My clients, the women and child in the images, are thrilled! It was an unexpected victory for them too. Barb, my client who commissioned the images of her granddaughter, loves the […]

Our participation in the silent auction is not very silent. It […]
