I have a new found passion for modelling since being chosen as Miss Teen Photogenic in the Miss Teen NL pageant. As part of the prize I was given the opportunity to do a photoshoot with Rostotski Studios. Along with Sara Rostotski, I was very fortunate to work with four other local Newfoundland Photographers whom, in my opinion, are among the top photographers on the Island. I would like to enlighten you by sharing some of my photo shoots with these talented artists.
These particular photos were taken by Sara Rostotski. Rostotski Studio is an internationally awarded portrait photography studio based in Paradise, serving Newfoundland for over fourty years. www.rostotski.com Sara was a delight to work with! She made me feel very proud of myself and her wonderful personality enabled me to have a lot of fun while working with her. I hope you enjoy my photos! For this shoot my hair and make-up was a product of Sound Salon and Spa. http://soundsalonspa.com/
Ray of Light Photography
I have had pictures taken by Apryl from Ray of Light Photography twice. http://www.rayoflightphotography.ca/ I absolutely loved working with Apryl! She gave me a lot of direction and helped me to envision what modeling entailed. She also provided me with modelling tips for when I participated in other shoots. I am posting some of my favorite pictures from both shoots. For this shoot, Jessica Burt was my hair and make-up artist. http://www.facebook.com/jessicanburt
Nate Gates Photography
For my shoot with Nate http://www.nategates.com/#portfolio/people/people , we went to an old, abandoned ski resort in Logy Bay, Newfoundland. It was a very hot day and as a result, mosquitos proved to be a bother. Needless to say, it was a real challenge to do some decent modelling. My dresses were sponsored by a local dress store called, “Twisted Sisters.” It was a lot of fun and it was great to see the different looks that I am capable of achieving. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Twisted-Sisters-boutik/104441604346 Jessica Burt also did my hair and make-up for this photo-shoot. http://www.facebook.com/jessicanburt

In this photo shoot with Crystal from Crystal Clear Images http://blog.crystalclearimages.ca/?p=1796 ,Crystal and I had planned to do a shoot in Tors Cove, Newfoundland. We also wanted to portray a natural look for this shoot. I think Crystal did a wonderful job capturing the beauty of Newfoundland and I was pleased with my look. One of these photos was even featured in The Newfoundland Herald http://www.nfldherald.com/. There was an amazing cottage at the location known as “The Cribbies” and this is where I shot the great photo of me by the front door with the red trim. For this shoot, I did my own hair and make-up. I hope you enjoy my pictures and the humble, yet beautiful Newfoundland Scenery.
The last photo’s I had taken were with Hilda Cousins of Cousins Photography http://cousinsphotography.ca/blog/ . We had an in studio shoot, it was great! I brought a lot of cool outfits to wear and even got to showcase my crown and sash in some of them. Hilda was fantastic! She has a great style and I felt very comfortable in front of her camera. For this shoot, Jessica Burt did my hair and make-up http://www.facebook.com/jessicanburt
I would like to say a special thank you to all of the photographers who have helped me with my portfolio. I thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you. With all of your help, I truly feel that I have put together a great portfolio, displaying various looks. I would highly recommend any of your work from family photos, portraits, weddings, or even just to people who are looking for a fun photo shoot. They can certainly do it all!
