Trash It or Treasure It Winners!

Wow!  Once again I was overwhelmed by all the activity surrounding this contest!

Not nearly as many entrants this time, and I fear it’s because of how complicated I made it to earn extra points.   But, live and learn, and congratulations to those who persevered!   You blew any competition you had out of the water!   THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who voted.  It was a lot of fun!

So the winner of the Trash It photo shoot is

the wonderful

Liz McPhee,

from glorious Hamilton, ON!

And the winner of the Treasure It photos shoot is,

of course, the lovely

Liselle Dochstader,

from Mississauga, ON!


Congratulations ladies!   Both of them will have their own private photo shoot with me sometime in the next 6 months.

The Trash It photo shoot will involve just having fun in the wedding gown.  We might go for a dip, canter through a field of long grass, jump in mud puddles…who knows!  Stay tuned… :)

And the Treasure It photo shoot involves creating a more candid, relaxed environment that will immortalize the gown while preserving it (for the most part)!

Winner of the Boudoir and mini make-over Contest!

After many touching emails and deserving entries, I’d like to announce the winner:


Esther’s friend, Rashmi, wrote a very touching entry for Esther and I felt like Esther embodied the spirit in which I dreamed up this contest.

An excerpt from Rashmi’s entry:
4) Are you giving this as a gift to a loved-one, or is this just for you?

—-She IS my GIFT! She has been the best friend to me…Despite all her trials, she has always been there for me; grounded, clear, honest and empowering. She inspired the feminine and awakens Love in people all around her. She deserves to be pampered, celebrated and immortalized!

Congratulations Esther!

I’ll have more coverage of this and more to tell you about Esther as it happens.

Now, for the REST of you ladies who won my heart…

There is something for everyone.  A couple of you will receive a 50% off coupon for boudoir photos, another few 25% off and everyone else will be getting 10% off boudoir photos!   Stay tuned to your email.

Thanks to everyone who entered and who entered a loved-one.   This was much more touching and more beautiful then I could have imagined.   And if my accountant didn’t do such a good job reining me in I’d want to shoot all of you!   Right in the head.

Stay warm everyone.

Win a Boudoir photo shoot!

It’s true. And a lot of you guessed correctly when I hinted at it a couple weeks ago.  But I am officially announcing that…

You can win a free boudoir photo shoot with me in January–just in time for Valentine’s Day!

But that’s not all.

When you win the boudoir shoot you also win a free mini-make over with a professional make-up artist before your shoot!


You, or a loved-one, must confidentially submit an email answering the following questions to

1) Why do you want to do a boudoir shoot?

2) Have you ever done anything like this before?

3) If you had to choose an era to dress-up in, what would it be? (ie. 40s pin-up girl, 70s au-naturel girl)

4) Are you giving this as a gift to a loved-one, or is this just for you?

5) Are you available to do a shoot in Southern Ontario in January?

Submit by November 30th, 2010.   A winner will be chosen by December 2nd based on their eligibility, availability and the creativity of their answers.  They will be notified, and, if there aren’t any conflicts, will be announced on the blog on the 3rd.

1) you must be over 18
2) if you have won anything from Wdf in the last 12 months you cannot enter
3) by entering the contest you are giving your consent to release your photos to Wdf for tasteful future-use
