Often times it is months and months before I am allowed to post images because they need to be published in a magazine (or two) beforehand, so I have many beautiful photos saved on my computer, collecting dust, waiting for their release from captivity. But, here we are! The Beaumont Sisters, shot back in the summer by Gerald has now been published in Off The Rails (along with some other mags) as their cover story.

Behind The Scenes / Three Little Honey Bees

If you follow me on instagram, then you probably already know I styled another editorial with Gerald last weekend. This shoot was slightly reminiscent of the first shoot I ever did with Gerald, The Anderson Sisters, and I really cannot wait until we can release the photos, it was a truly wonderful shoot. The day was spent at High Park with Gerald working his magic, the beautiful Annya art directing, Holly Kurmis of Hot Makeup making the gals look even more stunning with hair and makeup, myself styling some gems and of course the three honey-haired beauties, Mila (Peggi Lepage), Lauren (Spot 6) and M.K. (Anita Norris Models).

Normally when I style shoots I tend to use a lot of vintage that is either from my personal wardrobe or from my shop, but this time around I wanted to feature some independent designers and shops. I had pieces from Samantha Pleet, The Aspen Tree Vintage, Fortnight Lingerie, She and Reverie, Heart of Gold Designs and of course my personal stuff. I think the mix of vintage and new looked awesome together, and I especially love how the matchy-ish yellow and white outfits turned out.

Following Nature

031_8I met Heather Wells, designer of these exquisite headpieces and the creator behind Heart of Gold Designs, through instagram last summer. Her headpieces are made from vintage and precious materials crafted into these incredibly romantic and ethereal pieces that would make any gal (or guy) feel like an elegant, otherworldly creature. I knew I would want to shoot some of her pieces at some point and luck would have it that Meaghan and I had envisioned a shoot like this almost one year ago (except with a lot more snow…snow, she’s never there when you need her), so Heather’s pieces felt like the perfect fit once we finally brought this shoot to fruition. I’m pretty happy with how the images turned out. Meaghan and I took turns behind and in front of my pentax on this somewhat mild winter day.

On Friday I was lucky enough to have a couple gals from Style Kick film me at Cabaret Vintage for a little video that I’ll hopefully be able to share with you in the near future! (from instagram)
2. If only I had this many hats! And this couch…although maybe in a different colour. (instagram)
3. I wouldn’t mind living inside 3 Speed – it has become our go-to brunch spot of late.
4. And look how cool their ceiling is!
5. My handsome, bearded man – he plans to grow that thing for the rest of winter.  (instagram)
6. The National Ballet School – I talked a bit about that time in my life here. (instagram)
7. Our empty changeroom before our dance show – the calm before the storm.
8. Makeup less and the first one to arrive, as usual.
9. Ally getting ready for the show – Ally is one of the most genuine, wonderful people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She’s a real gem, and a true artist in all that she does.
10. What our dressing tables look like when we are getting ready – makeup and electronics.
11. My beautiful, amazing Armando – he never fails to make me laugh and he never ceases to amaze when I watch him dance. I get all kinds of shivers and feels when he is doing his thing.
12. Esie took this picture of me dancing at our tech rehearsal on Friday night…I quite like it.
13. One of the amazing headpieces by Heather from Heart of Gold Designs – I’m so excited to photograph and style this beauty! (instagram)
