Christmas is right around the corner and makeup artist Audrey Ivory suggested that this year we go all out and put up a 9ft tree... I figured, why not? This set has been lots of fun to put up and to photograph! We even made poster calendars for everyone that wanted to see their christmas shoot all year long ;) One of the most memorable shoots was with Billy L'amour - who, if you don't know, is one of the most talented and sassy drag queens Montreal has to offer. Billy sauntered in (all 7ft with heels) and worked the crap out of this set in less than 15 minutes. This image was used for Billy's sold out Christmas show and Christmas cards- it's a total honour for me!!
Here are some other really rad images from this set!
Scarlet James, whom we also had the honour of photographing for the Montreal Burlesque Festival Christmas cards!
Sailor Jassie & Erik
Elsa Muse and Annie
And possibly one of my favourite family photos of all time:
the Miss Ginger Clan!!!
I also recently had the pleasure of photographing The Montreal Burlesque Festival's founder and curator, Scarlet James. Here are a few images in which we took the natural beauty concept and gave it a little femme fatale twist. We wanted to portray Scarlet's elegance but still have a little bit of that burlesque cheekiness!
And of course, who can resist Candyland!
Happy Holidays to you all, I hope your holidays are filled with family, friends and good times! I wish you nothing but the best in 2016. Thank you for reading my blog, sharing and giving me over 100,000 hits a year! It's incredible and I'm so grateful to all of you that like and share my work!
If you're not doing anything January 9th 2016 - come celebrate with me at the Tassel D'Or - I've been working on this project day and night with Audrey for months and would love to see all your faces at this extravaganza!! Our host is none other than Laurent Paquin (who hosts sold out comedy shows all over quebec to an audience of 5,000 to 10,000 people!!). We have Burlesque performers from all over, including the infamous Raquel Reed (Glamour Icon, Model, Artist, Celebrity), Live band: Les Séparatwists, Circus performers, magic and so much more!! Our last two shows have been a huge success with people raving about the quality and sheer volume of entertainment wrapped up into one fabulous night!!! I really hope to see you there!
