smoke bomb

June 15, 2016

I am super excited to share this shoot with you! At the time, I had just crossed paths with the most amazing woman, Monique Pantel, who is now one of my most dearest friends! Actually, this day was our first time meeting face to face. smoke bomb photoshoot monique pantel smoke bomb photography monique pantel

Monique Pantel, the most radiant, giving, inspiring creative with whom I have had the honor of collabing with on a few projects as well as developing a fun and loving friendship! Monique invited me out to Victoria Beach where she has a cabin with her family! She’s such a beautiful genuine soul, I mean, she was in the midst of a busy summer wedding season, and had personal plans but made a little opening to get creative together, and that’s just what we did. I told her I’d bring the smoke bombs, a picnic spread, and my sister and I made a day trip up to visit Victoria Beach, a Manitoban sanctuary on Lake Winnipeg. We hit it off right away!

Monique has such a strong aesthetic vision and intuition, and I immediately trusted her and fed of her energy. She was seriously the cutest, like my little personal cheerleader (insert: YES, *snap*, AMAZING, *snap* *snap*, GIRLLL, *snap* *snap* *snap*)! She is a serious #GIRLBOSS with a mission to empower, inspire, and teach others through her creative endeavours as a visual storyteller. And she’s just killlllling it! Check out her blog with her most recent projects, she’s also making life more beautiful via instagram! She inspires me to fearlessly pursue my dreams, soooo much love for this mega babe! XO

May you all continue to live your life with integrity and share your inner light with the world around you! Surround yourselves with people who encourage you to let your inner light shine!

      Yeah, you can get them at a local fireworks store. Sounds simple but, we had one in Winnipeg.
