"Au reste, après nous, le Déluge"

Something Marie-Sophie and I have been passionate about for years, but has never come to fruition due to budget, time or patience.... is about to happen. We are both passionate about french culture, especially the dynasties of the 1700s. Though Marie-Sophie was adamant about doing a Marie-Antoinette set I really wanted to move away from what had been done by other photographers. I've had a special place in my heart for Louis XV and his Marquise de Pompadour since discussing it with Montreal Burlesque Performer Velma Candyass... While researching the Marquise I discovered that most women could relate and embody this magnificent woman. Yes, she was a consort to the King - the only woman he trusted and confided in - But she was also intelligent, beautiful and refined.

...And she knew how to party.

In two weeks, we're bringing Versailles to our studio. With over 1000 flowers, endless cakes, candies and more.... You'll be able to have high tea and endless champagne like a true Marquise... all in corsetry and lingerie of course! Marie-Sophie, Myself and Bittersweet Billie are working hard to bring you giant hair, huge bustles and endless frilly things coated with lace, pearls and Swarovski.

To book your session feel free to drop by the studio Thursday and Friday from 2pm to 6pm and Saturday from noon until 4pm. Due to the high volume of calls and emails we receive daily, your best option is to drop by and say Hi! We're terribly sorry about this inconvenience but we'll happily welcome you and show you around the studio in person. For those of you outside the Montreal area please call for bookings Thursday and Friday after 2pm for the receptionist!

Thank you infinitely for your patience and for your continuing support of our passion!!
