Adventures Behind the Lens

This past year, a good friend and I have been partnering up for a photo series featuring inspirational Toronto women.  Aylin, founder of Cabello by Carolina, will do their hair in inspired and beautiful hairstyles and pick their brains on their successes and life as entrepreneurial women in the city. We've been having a lot of fun with this series and have met many wonderful women, and often it will feel like a low-key hang out with girlfriends rather than a formal shoot. 

Here are some of my favorite shots from a few of our sessions around the city.


Gwen Elliot is a bubbly and encouraging media strategist and TV producer. The photoshoot with Gwen was full of laughs and good stories. Check out Gwen's podcast, Your Big Break, here.

Next up is Elle Ayoubzadeh, owner and creative director of Zvelle, a handcrafted shoe company based in Toronto. We had a lovely time chatting with Elle, checking out her gorgeous shoes, and hanging out with her and her puppy, Chilby.


Another leading lady that I was excited to meet was Jacklyn McCann, owner and director of Jacklyn Denise Communications. We met Jacklyn in her beautiful office off Spadina and had such a nice time chatting about life, business, and bad haircuts. Check out Jacklyn's Lady Boss events and Tea Talks!

Stay tuned for more collaborations with Aylin and the wonderful entrepreneurial women of Toronto!
