Zilly Lilly

I am beyond excited to share this set of photos with you from my second epic photoshoot as photographer for Dolly Shots!

First up is the fabulous, fun, effervescent Zilly Lilly!  I seriously cannot say enough good things about this gal.   Besides being the kind of beauty that you just can’t help staring at, Zilly is a passionate person, immersing herself completely in everything she does.  She is a fireball of energy and endless creativity.  If you want to see that creativity in action you can catch Zilly at the Toronto Burlesque Festival this weekend for their Pop Culture night on Saturday.

I love the personality that Zilly brought to her first photo set and I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Happy Valentines Day

Love is in the air today and one lady I love dearly is Zilly Lilly!  This gorgeous red head is not only a phenomenal dancer and burlesque babe, she is also a wonderful, smart and funny lady and friend.  I was very lucky to have Zilly join me in a saucy photoshoot earlier this year and Valentines day seemed the perfect day to post a little teaser from our shoot.  Enjoy Zilly Lilly and I in the first image of our series Behind the Burlesque Curtain.

Reflecting on a Fabulous Year!

It’s hard to believe 2014 is finally coming to a close.  This year has been so full of joy and success, good times and great friends.  I have a new job which I love so much and is the start of a wonderful career.  I have the most amazing group of friends a girl could ever ask for, not to mention the cutest kitten on the planet.  And I’ve been able to express my creativity through so many amazing fashion photo shoots and design projects.  I performed in an international burlesque festival, got a giant mermaid tattoo, met two of my idols (Yaya Han and Tess Munster) and I even started this blog.   I can’t believe what a lucky girl I am and I feel so incredibly thankful to have had all these experiences.

So here we go.  This is my year in photos; memories from most of the big events, photo shoots, friends, lots and lots of friends and the most fabulous fashions.  Thank you for following my blog and I wish the happiest New Year to you all!

The Night is Dark and Full of Tassels

Last Saturday was the third instalment of a Game of Thrones Burlesque!  The show was a wonderful mix of glitz, glamour and super nerdy humour.  From Dragons to John Snow to the Iron Throne itself, the evening was filled with some of the most beloved and hated GOT characters doing their sexiest stripteases.  Please enjoy my photos from The Night is Dark and Full of Tassels…
