Desert Shooting in the Valley of Fire

A few months ago I travelled to Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, San Francisco and L.A.  I stayed with some amazing friends, met some new wonderful friends, went white water rafting, ate delicious food, did some fun shopping, had some fantastic experiences and worked on some incredible photoshoots that gave me a lot of inspiration.

One of my favourite days was in Las Vegas, when I spent the day in the desert shooting Yasmin.  I find the desert to be extremely inspiring and calming at the same time.  Yasmin is a very experienced yoga instructor and together we were able to create some very interesting images.  We both love climbing rocks, so while she posed on the top of one, I would be on the top of another.  We had the most interesting weather for the desert, it was cloudy, sunny and even rained.  The Valley of Fire is definitely a spot I will be returning to.

Burlesque Festival Adventures & Holiday Party

1479081_10152088278810520_771893679_n

The Montreal Burlesque Festival passed so quickly this weekend and what a blast!  I had so much fun working with all the Montreal & International performers as well as the amazing team that worked so hard behind the scenes.  A big thank you to Scarlett James for bringing me in on the production! It makes it all worth the long hours putting together the show when you get to see such a polished product.  I’m really looking forward to working on the next big show!  Here are a few behind the scene photos of the festival.  We had an amazing pre-festival dinner at Atame and all night dance parties at the Wiggle Room for the after party.

I’m not doing a christmas party at the studio this year, but I am throwing a party at Atame, Montreal’s hottest new Aphrodisiac restaurant this Saturday, Dec 14th. Come to our naughty Winter Wonderland with burlesque by Miss SugarpussLou Lou la Duchesse de Rière.  There will be amazing give aways if you make our naughty list including a gift certificate for an aphrodisiac dinner for 2 at Atame, and something naughty from Il Bolero.  There will also be a private photo booth if you want to steal a kiss with your lover and a chocolate bar to tease your tongue.

Baby it’s cold outside
The weather outside is so sinful,
And Atame is so sensual
And since there’s bubbly a plenty,
Let it flow, let it flow let it flow

We will be waiting under the mistletoe,
We just want you here tonight,
With every sip we take,
Make our wish come true,
All we want this holiday season is you….

As some of you know, Christelle Souverbie, our talented make-up artist, was chosen to be a Summum model for their swimsuit edition.  She spent a beautiful week in Jamaica shooting and came back with some amazing memories and one hell of a tan!  She looks super hot in all her swimsuit photos, definitely worth checking out the magazine.  There was a camera crew that followed all the behind the scene moments of the girls and the Summum TV series was created.  When everyone came back to Quebec, they followed all the girls in their lives and followed Christelle to the studio for a shoot!

Here’s Christelle talking about her work, the studio and the fitness competition she did this past fall!  You also get to see some behind the scenes of a pin-up photoshoot of the show’s host, Amélie Paul, as well as Christelle.  I have to admit I didn’t realize they were going to show so much of me posing (deep blush) and please forgive my french, literally.  I try, I really do.
