Caila hates the stigma around being a model, She finds it unfair that plus sized models are held to higher standard just because of their body. She finds it unnecessary. She says that body size shouldn’t define what it means to be a model.
Although it made not seem like it, Caila a very morbid sense of humour. Caila makes every shoot I do with her so much fun. Getting to know her this year was amazing. Even when we’re not shooting together and just talking about life; I feel like I really have a friend I can rely for the rest of my life.
She also hates the song “Wonderwall” by “Oasis. A lot actually.

I’m so happy with this series as a whole

A fashion series, I had so much fun doing with three incredible people!
This was my final for my portrait class. The objective was create a series based around one theme. I chose the different ways flowers can be used to show different emotions.
Red -passion and love
Black-Sadness and sorrow
Green- harmony and growth

A series based on the different ways paint can be used as a medium.
A very very special thanks to Rachel Lockdust for being the MUA for this series.

Lights mean so many things to so many people.

I’ve done many shoots with my amazing friend Rebecca MacDonald. But this one is by far my most favourite. She stood in the cold water and changed into a dress in the cold weather. She’s amazing and such an important friend.
This set is super important to me. I’ve always dreamt of shooting a princess-like set near the water and my dreams finally came true. It’s about finding beauty in the most darkest of moments.
This is a subseries I shot with Rhea Miller, Emily Masurkevitch and Kasha Pinel. It makes me happy to my visions come to life. I’ve always wanted to shoot outdoor fashion I even used outdoor lights. I love everyone i shot with so dearly.
A series I shot with Emily Masurkevich and Kasha Pinel who are both musical theatre students. I wanted to go for a more naturey theme and this is a shoot i’ve been planning since August. I’m so glad it finally came through.
I’ve worked with Emily before but nothing editorial or fashion related so it was nice and refreshing to shoot something amazing her. Shooting with them both felt natural and amazing.
A shoot about compassion and love and flowers. This shoot allowed me to finally do something I’ve always wanted to shoot. I really felt like this was one of my favourite shoots I’ve done all year. I played Gravity during
I want to thank Krizia Natale and Abby Woodhouse for the amazing shoot and amazing time.
This was a fun series to shoot with my 3 amazing friends. I miss the falling leaves and the beautiful colours.
I want to thank Caila Warren,
This series is based on fabric and how it moves with dance. I wanted to show the harmony between movement and dancer.
I want to thank the models who trusted me to shoot this series. It’s a very intimate series and I can’t thank everyone enough. There is slight nudity, so be wary when browsing the rest of the photos

This series is about fashion and the streets. Street Fashion! I really loved the shoot I did with my friend Laken in the summer that I wanted to do it again!

This was the first time I shot with Heather. Heather has the pink hair and is the third person in this set
The Makeup Artist is also an amazing friend whom I love very much Angie Carpenter
A sub series from my fashion series. I thought it’d be fun to get some pair shots. The name “ Back To The Road” comes from the joke that cars only came whenever we wanted to shoot on the road.
It so much fun !
For this series,. I really wanted to let the fabric do the talking. The wings were gorgeous and it really let the fabric move. I was able to catch up with a really great friend and meet to two other really people.

The last is Maggie Kennedy- she has the white.
Emma Daniels also did Maggie’s makeup.
