Barbie Girl

This busy gal has been having a fun-filled, action-packed 2017!

I have really been enjoying flexing my creative muscles by being on the other side of the camera quite a bit this year.  In the spring I debuted my Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photo-series, followed by the Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque and I’m starting into fall with the Bondage Bombshells series.

 On the flip side, I have had a few really wonderful shoots of my own with some of Toronto’s finest photographers.  Today I thought I would start to release the images from what was possibly my favourite shoot of all time with the incredible Photolena!  This first set features my Vintage Barbie (with a twist) bathing suit, made by me for a burlesque act I debuted earlier this year.  I hope you enjoy!

Primaala

It’s summer in the city and boy is it hot!  Luckily I’ve got my trusty fan and a fabulous collection of clothing from Primaala to keep me looking and feeling cool.  Primaala caters to a high-end, modern, plus size fashionista clientele.  Their designs are sleek and sophisticated with clean lines and rich fabrics.  I had the pleasure of shooting this amazing selection of outfits with the help of the Fashion Canadiana herself, Vanessa Petey.  Vanessa is a fashion blogger with a focus on Canadian made clothing who has been exploring all facets of the fashion industry including a focus on Plus Size Fashion.  Vanessa introduced me to two amazing women, Rachel Holt, the woman behind this fantastic plus size store/clothing line and Yuli Scheidt, curvy goddess and photographer extraordinaire.   I had a lovely time working with these incredible women and am so happy to share the final results!
