SO PRETTY CARA COTTER ICONIC COLLECTION

I was recently commissioned by Edmonton-based jewellery designer Cara Cotter for her brand new Iconic Collection of bespoke pieces. This collection allows clients to choose their icon and style of chain or bracelet to create a beautifully customized piece. In order to showcase the myriad styles that can be made from the Iconic Collection, Cara styled many different combinations for our model, Hilary. This was a dream project in every way for me. I hope you enjoy Cara's exquisite work as much as I do! You can shop So Pretty Cara Cotter online, in her Edmonton studio (open to the public Thursdays 10am-6pm, or by appointment), at the West Edmonton Mall's RAAS installation, or at a variety of her stockists.

EDMONTON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER | DARBY

I recently photographed this lovely young lady, Darby, at my home studio. I had been itching to do a few indoor creative shoots during the tail end of this winter, so when I found Darby and her magnificent mane of pink hair, I was instantly excited to photograph her. I created a subtly mermaid-inspired makeup look with iridescent pastel tones using the Yaby Cosmetics World of Pearl Paint pre-set palette, which I would highly recommend. I wanted to let her naturally perfect skin shine through, so I used only a small amount of Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation. On her lips I used Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Reflex Frosty White.

Darby, thanks so much for modelling for me. I wish you the best of luck in all your adventures.

Many thanks to my friend Katryna Rae for lending me the beautiful ombré backdrop!

EDMONTON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER | TERESA

As you may have gathered from my recent Valentine's Day date ideas in Edmonton post, I like to revel a bit in this schmaltzy holiday of affection. I thought it would be fun to do a series of unabashedly saccharine, vday-inspired portraits with a pretty colour palette and a rose motif. I teamed up with my friends at Blogger Armoire to create a shoot based around three soft and feminine looks and a whole lot of roses. We were so fortunate to have model Teresa on board too. It was a pleasure to spend time with this sparkling young lady during our shoot!
