Yay! My editorial Sorbetto sees publication status in the Spring 2014 issue of Vezzo Rivista magazine. Thanks to my gaggle of girlies model Michelle B and Meaghan B [NUMA], MUAH Elena Ismail and stylist Lily Li - as always, it takes a village ;)
This past weekend I was lucky to work with an outstanding CURVY model from Wilhelmina Vancouver's Curve Division and her name is Jihan Amer. Tall and curvy in all the right places, Jihan is a beauty that knows how to work her angles for the camera ;) Add beautiful makeup looks and hairstyling by the lovely Lily Ling (Lily Does Makeup) and it's a recipe for great, sexy, big haired fashion shots of an awesome curvy chick. Check out the sneaky peeks below...

I was fortunate to shoot the lovely Chevvy Piston, a Vancouver plus-sized model, last weekend as she takes her first steps into the world of fashion. Chevvy is more well-known for her sexy side and pin-up photography, but now she is looking to expand her portfolio of work and style into the fashion world and I was thrilled she asked me to be her photographer.
We are looking at magazine publication options for the images; but for now, I just had to share a couple of shots from the hotness that is Chevvy Piston. Watch for more from this editorial shoot coming soon =) in the meantime, enjoy the eye candy!
Daub + Design Fall/Winter Look Book featuring models: Alanna, Naomi, Dennika and Rachel. Hair and make-up by Amanda Bond. Photography: Christina Lazar-Schuler | filmWERX Studio Photography
A few weeks ago, I got a great email from a previous client and was thrilled to be asked to shoot the Daub and Design's Look Book again. Daub and Design specializes in hand dyed, one-of-a-kind fabrics and the gorgeous F/W 2013-2014 look book features designer Lexi's luxurious leggings, famous seamless panties and fashionable scarves. The colour palette of the daub+design line of sophisticated casual wear is gorgeous, rich and suprising with punches of colour and contrast that beg to be noticed.
During our shoot, I cranked off over 1000 photos in about 5 hours shooting 4 models in about 10-12 looks each and about 20+ images for each look. Do the math, that is a LOT of shooting lol... So with me being very occupied behind the lens ;) I'm happy to share some BTS photos taken by the lovely Sarah Mulder, who BTW graciously provided jewelry for the shoot. I'm compiling a video of some of my favorites from the day and will be posting that very soon. In the meantime here are some BTS photos for you to enjoy.
