I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.
We were honoured to photograph Carmel in our photo studio, a beautiful young woman and a cancer survivor. Here is her touching story:
“I’m Carmel and one year ago I was diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma cancer on my scalp. Unfortunately this meant that my scalp needed to be removed in order to remove the cancer. The amazing surgeons at Princess Margaret were able to rebuild my scalp using two muscles from my back and a skin graft from my leg. However, this also means that I have permanent hair loss and lots of scars.
Every year I set a list of goals for myself, and one of those goals for 2016 was to get a photography shoot – to show that I’m proud of my scars and to celebrate how far I have come. It’s been a really difficult road, but I’m back on track and these photos represent both sides of me – owning my scars and my new image, while also celebrating the glamour and fun of a wig!”
Dear Carmel, thank you for being our beautiful muse!
As photographers, we think that a professional photoshoot is one of the best gifts you can give someone – a unique and classy way to show your care and love for that special person (family, partner, friend or a coworker). A professional photoshoot is a one-of-a-kind gift they will always remember and cherish. Our beautiful gift cards come in a chic and elegant packaging and can be used towards any photoshoot (any amount or a pre-selected package can be loaded onto the card). Call or email us to pick one up today!
This photoshoot is very special to us – here we photographed our studio’s intern, Miss F, a beautiful, intelligent and talented young woman we had the pleasure to work with two years ago. With her gorgeous curves and striking features she is a dream muse. Today, Miss F is celebrating her birthday and we are wishing her all the best!
Happy Birthday, Miss F, may all your wishes come true!
Halloween is just around the corner and we are going through our closets in search of long forgotten outfits to put together that perfect costume! Among many other things (sugar overload, cold, scary things, etc.), unlike any other holiday, Halloween gives us an opportunity to express ourselves, in any way we wish – try on a new personality or an outfit we never dared to wear. In our photography studio however, you don’t need a special holiday to express your fantasies. We’ve had the pleasure to photograph Miss I, a gorgeous muse and a proud mother of two, in unique, sexy and fun outfits. Thank you for being our muse Miss I!

As part of our sponsorship of last year’s Spadina Museum annual dress up event, The Great Gatsby Garden Party, we’ve provided a photoshoot for a winner of the best costume contest. This year, the winner was a sensational muse, Miss E. This remarkable lady owns a costume store, is a gothic/glam/industrial fashion designer and a prominent figure in the gothic community in Toronto and GTA. She brought a few handmade pieces from her latest collection and we’ve experimented with lighting and poses to create these electrifying images. Thank you for being our muse Miss E!
