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!
As an avid wearer of corsets I was thrilled to have the opportunity to model for the company Love, Poetry Corsets. Their unique designs come in a beautiful array of fabrics and their shapes hug the body and flatter the figure. I got to model this steampunk inspired, overbust corset with a sweetheart neckline and back lacing.
Last thursday I attended the RAW Art and Fashion Showcase at Revival in Toronto. When I arrived the place was packed with a very cool crowd of artists and art connoisseurs. Local painters, photographers, jewelry designers and makeup artists had booths set up around the venue and in the upstairs balcony showing off their work. The main event was the fashion show featuring collections from Love, Poetry Corsets and Amplify Apparel. I had a wonderful time taking in all the art and talent in the room and was blown away by many of the artists I met. I was especially excited to see the Game of Thrones inspired collection from Amplify Apparel, which featured an array of outstanding sculptural jewelry and accessories, worn and weathered, handcrafted garments, modelled by some of the city’s top fire/circus performers!
