Amanda's White Sheet Session


Amanda booked in for one of my White Sheet Sessions to celebrate a few milestones in her life, being a mom, starting a new workout routine and also to capture her new gorgeous smile. I have shot Amanda a few times in the past and it is always a great time.

A few days ramping up to the session, I got a few messages from her about how excited she was for this and she booked in for some additional pampering by getting her nails done ( I mean why not!). Then of course we had the threat of snow, and that had both of us a bit nervous about a go or no go. But the snow held off and she arrived at the studio with hubby and babe in tow. She got dropped off and bit early and her hubby took their daughter for some daddy and daughter time out in nature while we completed the session. The space was already set and within a few minutes of wrapping herself in the white sheet we had captured beautiful images. The session was full of laughs and gossip (cause that’s what we do) I worked with her to position her in the most graceful and flattering way, and we just ‘played’. Once we were about 45 minutes into the session I suggested having her hubby come back and floated the idea of adding her daughter into the images. I thought we could capture some precious moments between mum and her little 18 month old sweet heart. We only had about 10 minutes then it was a wrap. Another great session - I just love these sessions!

Kim these images are amazing!!!! I felt so comfortable and just relaxed working with you, and then the fact that my daughter joined in after just made it all that much better. You always make me laugh and In doing that we create amazing photos. It’s always been an honour to work with you. I have never felt so beautiful especially lately until I got behind your camera, the best sound from you is “yes,yes, yes. That’s it!!” And that happens to be a lot. And not to mention how amazing and patient you were with my daughter...thanks for being awesome and making me feel more than I already do. ~Amanda

Your Maternity Session

Congratulations!  Bringing a baby into the world is an amazing life event you definitely want to capture. Trust me, it’s a time you want to remember, and it is a beautiful way to bond with your little one once they are older.  So this blog is for you if you are considering or have booked your maternity session

How to prepare for a White Sheet Session

You booked your white sheet session so now what? Here’s a little list of things to think of before your session.

1. SCHEDULE A MANI PEDI

I am not saying you need to book one, however take some time to ensure that your digits are well groomed, clean and if you have polish I suggest having them match color or tone.   

2. HAIR REMOVAL

I strongly suggest that if you are going to shave, that you will want to do that a day or so prior to you scheduled session. That goes for waxing as well. You don’t want to have annoying little redness appear during your session.

3. MOISTURIZE

Use your best moisturizer and ensure that you are well hydrated. The intent is to have glowing skin, so include some lip balm as well if you have dry or chapped lips.

4. HAIR STYLING

If you regularly dye your hair, a quick reminder to have the roots touched up prior to the session. Yes, it is something I can fix in post however it can be easily corrected with a quick visit with your hairdresser.

World Meet Devan

Sometimes you don’t need to say anything other than she is woman hear her roar……

A Session with Mindy

I met Mindy through her sweet hubby who is a fellow photographer.  We met at a photographers meet and greet and my first impressions was she is just perfect for her partner Dave.  They are both comedians, constantly smiling and making people laugh.  They are a pleasure to be around.  My first session with them was a few years back and I captured some images for their engagement.  Fast forward to our most recent session, this time Mindy got the royal treatment.. this session was all about her.  We spend the session laughing and joking and having a ball.  Dave was my assistant that day as well setting up some behind the scene shots.  It was an epic day.  I look forward to shooting her every year of her life.. she is simply beautiful.

Contemporary Glamour

Definition of ‘glamour’ 

1: a magic spell

2: an exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness ‘the glamour of Hollywood’

What more can one say about the experience?

White Sheet Sessions

Have you heard the term ‘White Sheet Session’ and wonder what it’s all about?  Well, imagine a boudoir session without the lingerie.  I don’t mean a nude session, this is about about the intimacy we can create with a white sheet. It’s about embracing the sultry side of you. With a basic white sheet you have full control over how much you want to reveal or not. You may start our feeling a bit nervous, but trust me it's full of laughs and when you leave you will be glowing. I have had women literally gliding out the door feeling sexy, gorgeous and empowered. I strongly suggest a night out after your session, why not you are already made up and ready to take on the town.   

While the idea of this may seen like something you do in your 20’s and 30’s, I am here to say NO!  Do it now,  no matter your age! Celebrate a milestone birthday, or surprise your special someone.

 

Creative Maternity Sessions

Women are amazing, especially when they are pregnant.  It is such a special time, of miracles, and beauty.  I am always awed by a woman's beauty at any stage of her pregnancy and I am thrilled when I get to do creative maternity sessions.  A creative session could include fancy maternity dresses with billowing or flowing fabrics, nudes or semi nudes in nature to capture that connection to mother earth, studio sessions with a more magazine style (I personally loved Demi Moore’s cover).   If you are expecting I urge  you to book a session and capture this time... it is truly magical.
