Awards & Media
I've been giving back to my community since the start!
Giving back to my community has always been a HUGE focus for me! The more success I find in my business, the bigger I want to go with the way that I give back to my community.
Aside from the thousands of dollars of giveaways that I am constantly doing on my Facebook page, I wanted to showcase some of the fun things I have done over the years to give back to the phenomenal group of people who support my dreams!
Canadian Wedding Giveaway
I give away an $8,800 wedding photography package!

3. Permanent & private downloadable online wedding gallery
4. Unlimited full resolution downloads
5. Complete album on USB ($20 value)
6. Travel to anywhere in Canada (**$+800 value)
I combined my love for travel with my love for photography, and decided this was an amazing way to give back to my community as well as well check off some photography goals. The winner was announced on my Facebook page!
Goddess for a Day
I created 2 unforgettable experiences!
I created the most EXTRA giveaway called Goddess for a Day. I tried to create something that would be an unforgettable experience for the winner, and I succeeded!
On the first Goddess for a Day Giveaway, we had a Land Rover for the day from Kelowna Land Rover, wine from Rollingdale Winery in West Kelowna, and the client had nails from Fairytale Nails by Elizabeth, and lipsense from Maela's Esthetics.
In one day, the winner, Amber, got her hair done by Hair by Samantha Marie, makeup by Brittany Martiniuk Makeup Artistry, and outfits by yours truly. After Amber was beautified, lunch was on The Fig, and then we were off to shoot at numerous different locations, including the AMAZING Mackie Lake House for sunset. The perfect end of the day was taking Amber for dinner and a glass of wine at one of my favorite Vernon restaurants, Italian Kitchen Company.
These experiences were unforgettable.
The second Goddess for a Day giveaway was won by Karen, who had hair done by Hair to Please You, then her makeup by Maekup By Hafsa, along with nails from Nails by Lisa, and a boost of confidence from 9Round Vernon!
The winner and I hit up lunch, and then went to a ton of different locations, with wardrobe provided by me, and two beautiful unique headdresses from Fig & Fern Designs.
I loved being able to spoil these ladies, and to also include so many amazing local business owners in the fun!
Pets for Pets
We raised $1,100 for the BC SPCA!
Pets for Pets was a fundraiser in 2018, to support the Kelowna branch of the B.C. S.P.C.A. Over a few days, I did a ton of mini sessions of people with their pets, with 100% of the session fee's being donated, and we raised $1,100!!
This was also secretly my way to cuddle SO MANY ANIMALS!
I have always had animals from the SPCA in my life, and I LOVED being able to give back to such an amazing group.
