Chryssi & Romain


© Li_Sylvie_Mariage01-10

Whew! Finally glad I’m sharing this series of photos. A few months back, I had the opportunity to assist Micheal Beaulieu on my first wedding photo shoot and I was thrilled. I focused on shooting details – the venue, décor, flowers, setting – as well as shooting guests. Chryssi and Romain were such a sweet couple!  The venue was on Île Sainte-Hélène and I loved the little details – I couldn’t get over how pretty were the bouquets of flowers, the wooden tables and dinnerware. Michael insisted that I shoot in square format during Chryssi and Romain’s wedding and I love it, it’s a lot of fun! I’ll do more of that in the future. I had a blast helping photograph the wedding and I’m really happy with the result. Hopefully more opportunities will come soon.

Photographs and editing by me.

Larose Paris Part 2 & A Summer To-Do List


Larose - SLi - deux-1

For the second part of my shooting with Larose Paris hats, I asked my roommate – Marianne – to be the model. Fortunately she said yes!  It was fun doing a portrait photo shoot outdoors (since I’m so drawn towards still life) and I definitely want to do more of these in the future.
Thanks M, you’re a babe. x
p.s. yes, I’m totally aware of the dress (2nd and 4th photos) and it’s bothering me.

To embrace the warmest season that’s upon us since yesterday, I made a summer to-do list to keep me motivated. What’s yours?

1. Find a film camera
2. Go to Dinette Triple Crown and have a picnic in the park
3. Go outdoors and explore unknown neighbourhoods by bike
4. Plan a pizza + movie night with my roommates
5. Spend a day without Internet and read books all day (that’s a real challenge)
6. Give a shot to yoga
7. Clean my metabolism and to not eat refined sugar for a week (ugh)
8. Go to the Jardin botanique by bike to snap some beauties with my camera
9. Plan a pedicure in a beauty spa to pamper my neglected feet
10. Clean my wardrobe and do a huge yard sale in my neighbourhood

Oh, am I the only one who can not stop listening to Seoul? I’m addicted.

Larose Paris Part 1

Hey all! I’m sharing a photoshoot that I did a few weeks ago with Larose Paris hats in the school’s studio. Isaac was kind enough to let me borrow a few of them for an assignment, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’m having more and more fun in the studio with Korina, my partner in crime. This gal cracks me up, class wouldn’t be fun without her. There’s still improvement to make about the lighting on some shots, but I’m in a learning process so bear with me! The second part is completely different and was shot outdoors, which I’ll post soon.

Oh, and these hats are soooo beautiful. The fabrics and design are on point, and they have this elegant yet timeless style I always love. I wouldn’t say no to the Green Zip Fedora… Continue Reading…

The Dance Prelude



I’m happy to share this series I shot at l’École supérieure de ballet du Québec as part of a school assignment. I wanted to do a ballet shooting since ages and it finally happened a month ago. Gabrielle is quite amazing and she has such great feet, I’m jealous! She graduated last year if I’m not wrong and she still takes classes at the School. Many thanks to her for being part of this photoshoot.

Ballerinas are the best. It’s the dream career I always wanted to do, unfortunately Mother Nature has given me the wrong body type (aka the short one). But oh well. I hope you like these.  Continue Reading…
