Easter Chic: Brightening Up The Wardrobe For Spring

While visiting my sister in Toronto a few weeks ago, I popped into my not-so-secret favourite store, Aritzia, and picked up a few items that instantly made me feel less freezing cold and looking forward to spring.

Meet Anne-Marie Bouchard. A friend of mine for years, she is an extremely talented photographer. To describe her as kind, funny and engaging is an overwhelming understatement.

I remember the first time I met her, I was thoroughly impressed by this young lady who travels the world shooting beautiful weddings.  Her lifestyle photography focusing on warm pictures of children and families is stellar. Continue reading Style Domination x AMBphoto Photoshoot
