I loved working with Bella M for her “Feel Good Campaign” session!  Here a  few words from this incredible women, mother of 3 and someone who is taking her fight with cancer to the next level and seeing the beauty in herself, even after something that has left her physically scarred.  You are such a beautiful person M, Thank YOU for sharing with all of us this part of our journey.  xo ~Karen

It’s always a honour to be asked to work with a special group of ladies.

Thank you again!  Hair by: Danielle  Makeup: Melanie

“Working with Karen was an extremely empowering experience. For all the typical reasons you would think- honouring your beauty with a boudoir session is meant to be empowering, and so much more. But also in the way that I was able to highlight a very difficult time in my life. A time when my body was forced to adjust to a major change that left me with almost unbearable pain and scarring. Cancer took a lot from me but it also continues to teach me so much. As I healed from this surgery, I learned to appreciate the imperfections left behind, visible for anyone to see. It is part of the reason I’m still here today and I’m incredibly grateful for that. Karen gave me the opportunity to shine light on my scars and to show others that I’m proud of the story behind them. I hope it also encourages others to embrace their own scars and imperfections, all with important stories to tell. Thanks so much for the opportunity! “ ~ Bella M

Outdoor Boudoir Victoria B.C. : “Of the Sea”

23rd August 2017

Its been one of those summers where I blinked, and it was almost gone.  Busy with clients and family life, I had a moment, while watching the sun set in the wildfire skies, Eureka! I have not done an outdoor shoot this year!  We had to fix that.  I am so thankful I have met […]

Its been one of those summers where I blinked, and it was almost gone.  Busy with clients and family life, I had a moment, while watching the sun set in the wildfire skies, Eureka! I have not done an outdoor shoot this year!  We had to fix that.  I am so thankful I have met so many wonderful women in my career, especially those who inspire me to be creative and well, dunk them in the ocean.  Friends with benefits!

This is my tribute, heart and soul to summer. Enjoy! ~ Karen

Bella M – Boudoir Photographers Victoria BC

4th July 2017

“I wanted to mark this year of my life in a way that wouldn’t be easily erased from memory. It is the last year of my twenties and I just recently got married. I am so proud of where I am and who I am – my life is wonderful and I wanted images that […]

“I wanted to mark this year of my life in a way that wouldn’t be easily erased from memory. It is the last year of my twenties and I just recently got married. I am so proud of where I am and who I am – my life is wonderful and I wanted images that celebrated me in all my glory!

The studio was very simple, comfortable and elegant. I settled into my makeup session with a cup of peppermint tea and good conversation with the makeup artist. Karen created a very casual atmosphere that encouraged my pulse to slow down while simultaneously being professional and proficient. I had never done anything like this before (even my wedding photos were 99% candid), so posing in front of the camera was out of my comfort zone and completely foreign. Karen’s instructions and instincts were smooth, stylish and seamless.

Although some positions were surprisingly hard to hold, the time flew by fast! My favourite part was how many times Karen and I laughed during the session. Lying pretty much naked on a strange bed while someone you’ve known for an hour takes your picture is not really breeding ground for comfortability and ease, but somehow, she made me relax fast and picked up on my silly playfulness. I have never felt so comfortable with the uncomfortable!

Seeing the finished product…. wow! I was blown away! I am already a confident person and love myself in all aspects, but these images really captured parts of me I am not as familiar with. It was exciting to see my sexy side caught on camera. To see my vulnerability and my femininity. My husband can’t believe the finished product. He has an image as his iPhone lock screen and brags to everyone who will listen – “Check out my super gorgeous wife!

Do it. All you’ve got to lose are your clothes ;)” ~Bella M / May 2017
