Cover shoot: Katy Mixon x Good Housekeeping

/ June 4, 2018


I’ve been meaning to get this blog post up for a wee while (since March, oops!). Katy Mixon is the lead actress in ABC’s hit television sitcom American Housewife. She has also starred alongside Vice Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon in one of my favorite Christmas movies, Four Christmases. If you haven’t seen it before, I highly recommend that you set aside some time to watch it.

Katy was such a southern belle on set with the bubbliest personality. She was so polite and kind to everyone and very open to my photo direction. This was my first cover shoot for Good Housekeeping, and such an incredible experience. The team from Good Housekeeping was equally amazing to work with. I was so surprised when I learned that the creative director at Good Housekeeping, who I was working side by side with, was also a Canadian girl like myself.

We photographed these photos at Lightlab Studios in Los Angeles. The space is so nice and airy, so it worked perfectly for this shoot.

It was really exciting picking up Good Housekeeping on newsstands! I may have bought 1, or 2! Okay, okay I bought like 8 copies and gave them away because I was so excited, haha! Thanks so much to my amazing production team (friends!): Byron, Johnny, and Meredith, for helping me bring this shoot to life! Such an All-Star team always!!

Also, the images from the shoot were showcased in full window displays outside the Hearst headquarters, in New York City! I so wish I could have seen this in person. Thanks so much to Melissa for sending these iPhone snaps to me.

and happy Monday, you guys!

cover shoot: thoughtfully magazine

/ February 5, 2018



I’ve been meaning to share these photos for so long. Especially since we’re just about to start production on the Spring ’18 cover shoot. I love working with the team over at Thoughtfully Magazine, this time shooting their spring/summer ’17  issue featuring the super talented Rawcells founder, Natasha James (side note: the Fall issue that I also photographed is currently available to purchase at Anthropologie). Rawcells is a local, organic vegan treat brand. We decided to take Natasha and her goodies to an L.A. favorite –  the polka dot wall created by The Most Famous Artist and located at The Springs, a plant-based kitchen & juice bar in Downtown Los Angeles. It was so fun working with Natasha, as well as the entire team at Thoughtfully – creative director/founder Brandie Gilliam, wardrobe stylist Alexis Montalvo, hair stylist LaChanda Gatson, makeup artist Gina Caraballo, with assistance by Katheryn Parrish. This girl squad is definitely one of the best!!

Tiffani Thiessen for Mini Magazine

/ October 25, 2017


It’s sure been hectic over here. We’ve been shooting back to back for a couple weeks now, and I haven’t had a minute to share new work with you guys, so I’m excited to finally share my second shoot for Mini Magazine! This time shooting 90’s Queeeen Tiffani Thiessen (from Saved By The Bell & Beverly Hills 90210) for the spring cover.  It was such a treat to spend time at-home with Tiffani.  She made our team feel right at home from the moment we stepped into her stunning historic home, and since I was up super early this morning prepping for the next Mini Magazine cover shoot, I figured I should probably share this feature I photographed many months ago. Have an awesome day, you guys!

Cover shoot: Candace Cameron Bure

/ September 5, 2017


All of the 90’s nostalgia came flooding back as I got to photograph one of my childhood idols, Candace Cameron Bure also known as DJ Tanner from Full House!! Candace was so gorgeous in person (what’d you expect?) and effortless in front of the camera. Seeing as a huge part of Candace’s work and personal life is here in Los Angeles, I wanted to showcase her in California essentials. The airstream was such a unique touch accompanied by bright colors and floral patterns (and even some flying flowers, haha!) — the Thoughtfully Magazine cover and story might be one of my favorites!
