In June 2012, I had the honour of working with a team of very talented professionals, which included photography, make up, hair and styling. Together, we created a submission for the spring 2013 fashion show to sponsor the Canadian Cancer Society. The show is called, Fashion For Life, raising money for cancer research that stays in the local community of Kitchener- Waterloo. The event consists of two shows, one held at noon and the other show in the evening. Last year, the two shows combined raised approximately $100,000 for cancer research in one day. Absolutely incredible!
Each year, the fashion show committee selects a new “face” for the show, which is used for all the advertising material and show programs. I have been a model in the show for years and it has always been a dream of mine to be the “face” of the show. This year, my dream came true and I was selected to be the face of the 2013 Fashion For Life evening show. Personally, I am extremely flattered to be given the opportunity and deeply touched as I have had close family and friends lose their battle with cancer. For everything the show stands for I could not be more proud!
The image found on the poster was not the only one submitted to the committee. A series of photos were selected for the submission, all with a different look and feel. In past years, the look ranged from edgy to feminine to artistic. Laurie Cadman Creative styled the shoot, sourcing wardrobe from La Creme. The dresses selected were absolutely beautiful! Gemini Modeling Agency incorporated the shoot into their summer open house, which meant I shot live in front of guest dropping by to see what the agency was all about. It gave young models an idea of what a photo shoot looks like and what happens while you are shooting. What a great idea!
If you have an opportunity to attend this amazing event, tickets can be purchased through Gemini Modeling Agency. Contact information can be found on their website at: http://www.geminimodels.com.
Below are other images that were considered for the final submission cut. Thank you again to the amazing team who made my dream come true, you are all so very talented!
