CBS's infamous Andy Rooney was once rumoured to have said, "As I grow in age, I value women over 4o most of all". He would have adored Heather: outgoing, outspoken, oh so gorgeous and over 40. Yes, over 40. And, yes, a mother of 4 to boot. Heather stepped out of her comfort zone, busy life, jobs and children to take some time to create some fun -- and stunning -- images of herself. She was ever-smiling, relaxed and genuine. Andy Rooney, you may be on to something. ;)
Many of you may recall the contest I ran earlier this year in honour of International Women's Day and my participation as the Official Photographer at the I Am Woman Trade Show and Conference. Aynsley graciously agreed to be my model to showcase a woman's beauty in a contemporary light. One can be glamourous, provocative and stunning in long sleeves, pants and clothing that is not fitted or overly revealing. My repeated mantra and business model is that every woman -- be she pregnant, a mother, a bride, a sister, an aunt, a grandmother, a daughter -- deserves a reminder of her beauty. In the coming weeks, fasten your seat belts as I will show you ALL of them. Heather, mother of 4 taking time for herself, is next ... Now, who of you will take up my mantra as well?

When Elizabeth contacted me for a tasteful Glamour Shoot to send to her husband who is deployed to the Kandahar region in Afghanistan, I readily agreed. Elizabeth was absolutely amazing to work with: so easygoing, relaxed and comfortable in her own skin. Her style was elegant, tasteful and understated -- but her resulting images are anything but an understatement. Elizabeth, thank-you for entrusting me with this very special request; Dave, thank-you for your service to your country and the sacrifices you, Elizabeth and your families make on an on-going basis. This Canadian is able to live safely in your country because of you. Godspeed you home.
