What is boudoir?
Boudoir is a genre of photography designed to capture sensual raw beauty images of women
(and now men and couples too)
The word boudoir is actually french - as original meaning was - a private room for women to sulk - but then later - a place for scandalous frolics Read More
Did you know that there's 1440 minutes in ONE day?!
That seems like a heck of a lot of time
yet I always feel like I'm running out of time!
Even during the winter season when I'm 'not busy'... I'm busy!
My 'to do' list is getting longer - even though I am getting things done - bit by bit.
I am so THANKFUL for Abi
She came into my life to assist with weddings - and now she's helping with my TO DO list.
She is saving me!
But can she save me from the grey hairs I seem to be sprouting?? Read More
Having a mommy - as positive - happy - bubbly - just BRILLIANT - as mine...
is such an inspiration.
She's an absolute delight to be around.
Whatever she is faced with ( in life ) - she tackles it head on
with a smile!
Mommy is one of the little pieces of the puzzle that made me WHO I am!
She is an inspiration.
She inspires me to dream - and catch those dreams.

With Granyma' recently passing away, it made me think...
did she do everything she dreamed of - that she wanted?
Did she live life to the fullest?
Am I fulfilling every dream?
Are you saying Yes to opportunities - even though your stomach is churning - and butterflies are doing somersaults?
Are you saying yes - despite everyone else saying no - to that 'thing' - or to you?!
My hubby and I said YES to moving to Canada - even though it was a long and frustrating process - and people said "it's just a pipe dream" Read More
Let’s do the ‘try before you buy’ thing!
It’s been a pretty wet summer - so far - but we’ve still had quite a few stinking HOT days!
Days I’d like to call ‘ice-cream' days - where salads and exercise go out of the window (well - sometimes, I WALK to get the ice cream) - and we indulge in a sweet, refreshing treat instead.
And the best thing about going for ice cream cones - is the sampling of every.single.flavour - just to make sure we pick the perfect one (or two) - before committing to an entire scoop!
You may not be able to make up your mind - but as soon as you taste THE one - you just KNOW!
Try before you buy! Read More

Thinking out loud!
This morning - I woke suddenly from my sleep.
My dream was basically an episode of the Walking Dead - abandoned buildings and deserted towns that I would move on from - leaving those that I just met, behind. - leaving in my Mini Cooper that climbed stairs and packed up into my pocket when I had no need to drive.
I ended up stood with my mom and dad - in an office full of women who gathered and listened intently to my daddy as he raved about my achievements - and the model wine bar I’d made at school.
But there was another man in the room too - and he was stood inappropriately close to me. I didn’t know this man, but yet he had his arm weighing down across my shoulders. I felt uncomfortable. Read More
Face YOUR Fears - like I did!
Twenty-one years ago - I was abandoned up the Eiffel Tower!
And 38 years prior to that - Audrey Hepburn apparently got ‘lost’ up the tower too!
I was shopping for souvenirs - and when I came out of the store with keychain in hand - my school class had gone.
They can’t have gone far - surely?!
But they had.
I searched for them - and found no-one - they had left me.
At twelve years old - I was stood alone - in a foreign country - up the Eiffel Tower! Read More
They are just EXCUSES!!
They ARE just excuses!
Yesterday was a pretty productive day…
I finished up a boudoir edit - and burned the images to a beautiful personalized disc.
The Client Appreciation Party got re-organized due to the change in location - and I think it’s going to be even better now!
Oh - and I started working on my first BOOK!! Read More
Building confidence can take a little bit of work...
Maybe you’ve always been hard on yourself - and never felt right complimenting yourself.
Or maybe something has happened in your life - and you are not who you used to be - or maybe you are exactly the same person - but just don’t see it - or feel it anymore.
Sometimes, we all need to find ways to feel beautiful again - to be beautiful on the inside AND the outside!
And I believe that I can help YOU!
As I have with so many of my lovelies . . . Read More
