I was recently commissioned by Edmonton-based painter Amy Dixon to do some portraits and studio images for her and it was a dream shoot for me! To meet Amy is to adore her, and to see her work is to want to fill every wall in your home with it.

We planned out a Sunday afternoon shoot in her home and studio that would include a range of outfits and beauty looks, headshots, photos of her at work creating her vibrant pieces, and generally just a collection of images that she could use for her website and social media.

I did her makeup and Amy did her own hair and styling. She chose a beautiful selection of vibrant outfits, which coordinated perfectly with the colour palette of her work. And of course, I invited her sweet kitty to join in our shoot. Pets are always the best sidekicks in portraits, in my opinion.

Amy, I feel so lucky that you found me! Your are such an inspiration.
