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!
I turn 29 this week and am so excited to celebrate with these gorgeous photos from the incredibly talented Teri G!! I had the pleasure of working with Teri recently at the Templar Hotel in Toronto and we had such a blast playing in this big bathtub.
2018 has been a transitional year. It has been the uncomfortable growing stage in between leaving a past self behind and becoming a new creature. It has been hard and it has been a journey but ultimately it has been worth it.
The biggest change in my life this year was leaving my soul-sucking, 9-5 office job for a more creative career path. I have had some of my best photoshoots, both in front of and behind the camera and worked with a whole plethora of new and wonderful people! I made a fabulous new costume for one of my favourite performers, Laura Desiree. I celebrated the marriage of two of my dearest friends. I got a new, badass tattoo of my idol Tura Satana from my girl Suspiria! And to top off the whole year I move back into my apartment after nearly a year of extensive renovations!
I am now in the process of setting up Dolly Shots Studio for 2019 and I am so excited to share it with you! Stay tuned next year for lots more fabulous-ity and beauty!
