2023 Portrait Studio Sessions // Loved Ones

 Saturday, March 4th, 2023 

upcoming sessions.


@ 207 West Hastings Street // GASTOWN STUDIO


Through previous events, I’ve raised $1600.00 for Dark Before the Dawn


Dark Before The Dawn is a wellness retreat for Black folx that aims to create a safe, inclusive environment for Black healing through a multifaceted approach. This approach includes holistic, cultural, and integrative wellness practices and modalities.

This year, partial proceeds from the event will be going to Rainbow Refugee!


More than 70 countries still criminalize LGBTQ relationships including 6 countries that effectively impose the death penalty on consensual same-sex sexual acts.

Rainbow Refugee promotes safe, equitable migration and communities of belonging for people fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or HIV status – they also provide information, and system navigation to refugees and refugee claimants seeking refugee status in Canada. 

On Saturday, March 4th, this year’s studio sessions focus on celebrating our loved ones.

The mood is simple & chic. In previous years, I’ve used colour backdrops, but this time around I will be using a white backdrop and parts of the studio space to emphasize

beauty and colour, and create a cozy and timeless feel.
