New photos are here

Not even a week after the photo shoot and I already have the pictures from last Friday. I couldn't be happier with the results. My only regret is not having it done sooner. Here a few of my favorites:

Photographer: Kristen Lunman
Model: Pascale LL

Photo shoot

Yesterday was my favorite day of the year. I finally had a photo shoot for my clothing line. Not just any photo shoot but a professional one. Kristen, a local photographer, contacted me last winter for a possible collaboration. Of course, I couldn't refuse. Fast forward to summer, where my only job was to find a model. Not as easy as it looks, especially when you're on a shoestring budget. Finally after weeks of searching with no luck, my "day job" co-worker mentions to me that my other co-worker, Pascale, models. Really! All this time, I had a model sitting 4 cubicles away.

Finally the big day.

I really had no idea what to expect. I had 2 dresses and 9 tops that needed to be photographed in 2 hours. Was that even possible? The Weather Network was forecasting showers in the afternoon. Would the shoot be canceled? I tossed and turned all night. I didn't help that the shoot was at my house (in the backyard) so I had to make sure the house was tidy and the lawn was cut.

The model shows up looking fabulous and the photographer is so nice and energetic that it's contagious. As soon as I saw the first outfit in the window of her digital camera, I knew these photos were going to be awesome. The weather was on our side and we were able to breeze through the 11 outfits in 2 hours.

Kristen primarily does wedding/ family photography. So if you're getting married in the Ottawa region, please check out her website. I really can't recommend her enough, she's such a professional.

Pascale is so gorgeous. She really has a natural talent for modeling. You can view more pictures on her portfolio site.

Stay tuned for the new pictures, I should have them by August.

July heat wave

I'm back from my mini Canada Day vacation at the cottage. As usual, it's was a great time. We had so many laughs. The weather was a bit chilly the first nights but it warmed up as the weekend progressed. It looks like we're having a heat wave this week. I'm working up a sweat just typing so I'll keep this post short and sweet.

Ready for a swimming lesson

Having a handle on the life jacket is not only for safety but for laughs too!
