DollyShotsPhotography.com

Dolly Shots Photography was a seed I planted 5 years ago when I first rented a studio, brought in a bunch of friends and took their portraits.  Taking photos was something I started to do as a teenager to document my love of fashion and beauty.  When I first began applying the techniques I had learned from taking self-portraits to photographing friends it was a thrill to see how much my photos could positively affect others.

The responses I got to my first few photoshoots was outstanding!  Through photography I learned I could help people increase their self esteem.  Making others feel amazing about themselves is what I strive to do in every single photoshoot and it is the foundation of my business.

In those 5 years I have taken College courses in photography and have been working hard to shoot, learn and build my portfolio.   www.DollyShotsPhotography.com is the flower that has finally blossomed from that seed.  As of today the Dolly Shots Studio is open for business!

Two Playful Kittens

I am very pleased to bring you an extra special post this week for what I’m calling Frisky Fridays!

Way back in 2017 I filmed a series of videos to go along with my Bondage Bombshells photo series but never had a chance to finish the videos.  Due to circumstances beyond our control I am now finding myself with enough time and energy to revisit this project.  Now without further ado here is part one of the Bondage Bombshells video series entitled Two Playful Kittens and starring the gorgeous Bianca Boom Boom & Kitten Monroe!

Enjoy and stay safe!

2019: A Magical Year!

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!

In 2019 I performed at the Toronto Burlesque Festival, in two PeepshowTO productions, twice at Ladies of Burlesque at the Royal, in a Sailor Moon themed show by Dead Moon Circus, in Lee Vanity Productions‘ Lizzo Burlesque Tribute, at Sinful Sundays, once again with Amplify Apparel, at Nuit North in Hunstville, at Burlesque Wednesdays at the Bourbon Room in Ottawa, at a showcase in Waterloo, and of course, at my favourite place, Yeti Con!  Besides travelling across Ontario, I also visited New York with my sweetie and went to Las Vegas to attend the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender!

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!

Happy New Year!!
