$50.00 Shelter from the Storm Photoshoot

Shelter from the Storm is Canada’s largest national campaign dedicated to ending violence against women. Canadian Women’s Foundation raise funds to support more than 450 shelters for abused women and their children, across Canada.

You’ll also be helping to fund community programs that assist women as they rebuild their lives after abuse; that teach young people about healthy relationships; and that counsel children who have witnessed violence, to help them heal and prevent them from becoming victims or abusers themselves.


If this even isn't quite in your budget, you can still always donate directly to shelter from the storm, visit the website for more info.

I have personally known too many women who have fallen victim to abuse, whether it be in the family or in a relationship. Let's help those women, and embrace being beauties ourselves. Too many women are having a hard time with self-esteem and strength. This photo-shoot will help raise funds for Shelter from the Storm, and every women that decides to participate will have a fun personal shoot, and bring out her beautiful self.

Depending on the response this event has, there will be one event held in Victoria, BC and one in Vancouver, BC. 

This is to see how many women can commit to a shoot, a small deposit will be required (you can send funding online via paypal).

I'd like to book a room at the Delta, or Empress hotel in Victoria, we will be shooting in the bedroom with a boudoir theme, embrace that sexy side of yourself, feel confident and get some photos in the mean time. We will have snacks at the hotel, fun hang out session for women at the hotel in the suite. 

All women that participate will have the photos online webgallery, you will get all your photos on a CD and proceeds will go to Shelter from the Storm (basically everything left over from paying for the hotel) - cost for each lovely lady is $50.00 (tax receipts are available through shelter from the storm).

What type of photography is this?

It’s up to you and what you feel comfortable with, if you feel most beautiful in your fave le senza pj’s or if that means sweats and your husbands hockey jersey, it’s entirely up to you ladies. The reason for this event is to help bring out women’s confidence, and have a good time, suppoting a great cause.

Please email me if you would like to participate no later than July 6th, 2009 - so we can book a room, or set up a studio session.
