Kristen & Kevin's Beach Wedding!

This was my first time in the beautiful town of Southampton, On. and can I just say it won't be my last!
Getting Kristen and her family ready for her wedding was such a laid back experience and that continued throughout the entire day I spent with them! I especially loved the cute little towel dresses that the ladies were chillin' in all morning.

As you can tell, Kristen is a "wee bit taller" then my own 4'11" LOL and as she is a former model, she made my job ever so difficult! *note me being sarcastic! lol

We even stopped by the happy couples favourite snack shack! Kristen & Kevin's families have camped with each other for over 30 years in Southampton!
Here's wishing you and your families many, many more wonderful years of family meetings by the campfire!

Thank you Kristen for choosing me to be part of your special day!

Beat Rocks the Block 2010!!!

I was so excited to get a call from one of my FAVE morning show hosts, Adele from 91.5 the Beat, to do her makeup for BRTB and her 2nd entry video for the Regis and Kelly contest!

Not only did I get to see interviews and performances from great Canadian talent like Stereos and Down With Webster, I got to introduce Carlos to the wonderful world of makeup as well! LOL

Thanks for the great experience guys!

This Wedding was so beautiful and full of joy! It was such an honour to be a part of this family's special day! Thanks so much Kirsten for making me feel like part of the family!

Cherlyn & Chris say ~ I DO! ~

Not only did I get this STUNNING Bridal party ready in the morning, I got to be with them all day! Every Bride should have her very own entourage for her Wedding!!!

Not only were these ladies beautiful, they were hilarious! Such a fun group with a great sense of humour.
Thank you Cherlyn for choosing me as your makeup artist, it was an absolute pleasure!

Mati Haskell ~ Songbird Extrodinaire!

If you haven't yet heard of Mati Haskell... you WILL!!! She is an extremely talented singer who has a set of pipes on her that you would not believe! The first time I heard her CD, I was in awe.

I was so excited to be working with her on some of her promo material with Nancy ( ). Mati has a quiet grace about her, an artists soul that you can feel when she sings. I simply cannot wait until we shoot again! (and hopefully be her makeup artist for her first awards show *hint*hint lol)

You can find out more about Mati, where shes performing and how to purchase a copy of her CD by going to....

Sara & Rob's Wedding!

I was so excited to be a part of this wonderful couples big day.
It was such a pleasure to get Sara ready for her wedding and the look on Robs' face when he first saw her was just priceless! Spending the day with these two while doing their photos was a blast and an adventure!!! It's amazing the "luck" you can come across... so happy Rob got his classic car fix! lol
Much joy and blessings to you and your beautiful family!
