This weekend I had the privilege of working with a model who's career I have quietly followed online and through social media: Elly Mayday

She is an amazing woman that I admire and respect for so many reasons... she's a cancer survivor and advocate for cancer research; she is a curvy model that believes in being your authentic self; and after all she's been through, that she can remain the sweet, confident, good-natured human she is, inspires me to be a better human being.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU Elly for reaching out to me and letting me know that you were interested in working together. I was surprised, pleasantly so, to receive that first message from you (especially since I've wanted to create portraits of you for a LONG time); I'm so happy we could make this weekend work.

I look forward to working with you again in the future... XOXO

Spring editorial coming soon...

Seriously in love with the locations, styling and overall look of this spring inspired shoot with Claudia Bakehouse.  Her effortless looks are courtesy of MUA Michael Fels and stylist Sarah D'Arcey. Can't wait to share more... coming soon to magazine near you. <3


the final edit of this low-key shoot will be published in Elegant Magazine later this month; in the meantime, here are some of the raw, "barely" edited shots from my session with the beautiful Kayli.

 final image release coming very soon... 

Trouble in Fremont

New work published in Elléments Magazine's Rock and Roll issue this month!

Trouble in Fremont was shot on location in Las Vegas, Fremont District (aka Old Vegas) using only the available neon and street lights of the neighbourhood. Good thing Vegas is a "bright lights" city and cranking up the ISO on my camera wasn't a huge deal.

BONUS POINTS: We saw some interesting things shooting in this area... including the "biggest cock in Vegas"! His words, not mine LMAO!

  • Model: Karie Holst
  • MUA/Styling: Karie Holst
  • Photographer: Christina Lazar-Schuler
  • Photographer Assistant: Terry Schuler

Shooting at the "Shack"

My husband and I built a beautiful home from late 2015 into mid-2016 and it's become a dream home not only because the design and beauty of it, it's a dream home / studio for photography.  With huge windows and high ceilings, the natural light spilling into the space is gorgeous. It's a dream to shoot in when the weather is less than cooperative (read: deep-freeze conditions in Vancouver!)

 Here are a few recent images capture at home
