It was my most successful year to date, with a total of 40 shoots completed! I had at least one photoshoot every month and February was the busiest month with 6 shoots altogether. Some photos you’ve seen, some are for private clients and some have yet to be revealed. I worked with more new clients than ever before and made incredible connections that I truly cherish.
Even though the world continues to be a confusing and scary place I feel like this year I gained a lot of my confidence back as a photographer and an artist. The previous two years were challenging, but this year I made an effort to pursue my passion and I have honestly never been happier in my life!
I feel I have gained incredible momentum in 2022 and my dreams for next year are to continue to grow my photography business and to gain more knowledge and skills as a photographer.
The spoopy season is upon us! Now is your chance to up your Halloween game with some epic new photos! Book your Dolly Shots Photography photoshoot during the month of October and you will have access to our fabulous Halloween Sets, designed and created by Charlie Quinn of Quintessentials!
I’m so excited to share something a little different this week! My incredible partner, Flare aka Flarington King, an influential Drag King who has been performing for 25 years, did this amazing Kenny Rogers look to shoot a brand new video performance!
You can catch their interpretation of “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers at the Drag King Legends show, happening on February 21st on Zoom. This show, produced by Flare, Mo B Dick, Ken Vegas and Fudgie Frottage, is a celebration of Drag King artists with 25+ years of performing under their belts. Truly an historic event and one drag fans won’t want to miss!
2019 has been a wonderful, magical year for me! It was a year filled with lots of fun, laughter and most importantly, LOVE! 2019 was the year I fell head over heels in love with my incredible partner, Flare, and we began our adventures together!
I worked hard this year at setting up the Dolly Shots Photography studio, but due to circumstances beyond my control I wasn’t able to open my new business or studio fully. (Goals for next year!) I did, however, have a plethora of wonderful shoots and had the chance to photograph some of my favourite performers! I witnessed two more amazing friends tie the knot with each other in a beautiful Jewish ceremony followed by a dance party complete with Drag Queens and the Time Warp! I also welcomed two new family members this year, the sweet and rotten kittens; Luna and Artemis!
This year was a trip, this whole decade was a trip! It’s been fun to look back on all the good times (and bad) and reminding myself how far I’ve come! Look out 2020, I’m coming for you!
