Beautiful faces

Today, I partnered with the talented Kati Atkinson from Myth Make Up Artistry to do a mini head shot marathon.  Never having done this before, I was hoping that my schedule was going to go smoothly and I am so pleased today went out without a hitch.  Every client had their hair and make up done which took approximately an hour, giving me plenty of time to rest and relax in between clients and get to know each of them. (I can’t sit or stand for too long since I am recovering from knee surgery). All except one client were all new faces that I met today.  Each woman had a story to tell, and I so enjoyed the conversation with each and every one of them.  Thank you to each one of you beautiful ladies.  I hope you felt relaxed, comfortable and tell others that it was a ‘piece of cake’, as I know there other women who want to update their head shots but are nervous. Embrace Photography and Myth Make Up Artistry make it easy!  If you would like to be added to the waitlist for the next head shot marathon and have your own head shot gallery, please contact me.

Honouring your life moments.. Meet my friend, Kelley Potter.

Kelley, a friend that I met through another facet of my life is a gift to all that meet her.  First and foremost, her happy contagious spirit illuminates the room.  She’s a friend, sister, mother, believer in women’s empowerment and contributes so much to her community in countless volunteerism and random acts of kindness.  She’s an excellent public speaker and has followed her heart to pursue a career to become a Certified Life Cycle Celebrant.

Celebrants are schooled in the art of ritual, ceremony, world traditions, faith traditions, mythology, ceremonial writing and ceremonial speaking.

Kelley can help you celebrate or commemorate virtually every life event with a focus on customizing your ceremony to reflect the needs, beliefs and values of the couple or family.  She specializes in weddings and funerals but is open to other ceremonies such as  Adoption, Survivor, Illness, Healing & Transition,  Memorials, Celebration of Life, Dwelling, Animal Tributes,  Business Launches, and events marking milestones for communities, civic occasions and charities.

She will be launching her website in the next 8 weeks.  I was honoured to capture some photographs that will be used in her marketing materials. These photos are a perfect reflection of Kelley’s professional, yet charismatic personality.  If you have a question about an upcoming event and would like Kelley to officiate, you can contact her via email.

Embrace Photography graces the back cover of Susan’s new book!

It’s always a pleasure, and I mean REALLY FUN working with author and comedian Susan Stewart.  The only drawback photographing someone like Susan, is that instead of trying to make her smile, she had me laughing so many times I had to try really hard to concentrate!
Susan had a specific vision of what her headshot needed to look like in order to match the front cover of her new book.  I am delighted to say that she has sent me the cover of her new book to be released next month.  I am so thrilled to be credited for my work on the book jacket.  I love it!  Thank you Susan.  Lenses-cover-copy
