Recently, she even earned a diploma in Creative Writing, an endeavour that unexpectedly led her into the captivating realm of Romance novels. Through her writing, subjects spring to life, and characters evolve into their own entities. Sharing personal narratives not only inspires others but also fosters connections among us all. Karen believes that everyone has a story to tell, and she excels at helping authors convey theirs effectively.

She takes great pride in her role as an editor for Women’s Expressions and hopes that this experience will pave the way for a successful career as a ghostwriter.

Yves Quinty – Photographers

Yves excels in nature and outdoor photography, showcasing his artistic talent. Jo-Anne finds great pleasure in collaborating with Yves, as he infuses the studio with positivity, joy and most importantly, ensures that models feel relaxed and comfortable.

Yves also explores other artistic pursuits, including working with wood, where he specializes in crafting cutting boards. These cutting and serving boards add an elegant touch to any kitchen. You can find his exquisite wood boards available at craft shows in Ottawa.

Finally, Yves also has a passion for coffee beans. He expertly roasts them to perfection, believing that there’s nothing quite like a good cup of coffee. Do you share the sentiment? Yves is the proud owner of Crazy Goat Coffee Co., a specialty grocery store and coffee shop.

Stuart MacDonald – Photographer

Stuart’s hobby is video production, and he also dabbles in photography. When Stuart enters a room to capture a photo, a sense of serenity envelops the space as he exudes a calming presence in the studio. Working with Stuart is a delightful experience; though he may be reserved, his ability to tell a good joke never fails to elicit laughter from everyone.

Hayward Lam – Photographer

Hayward is an exceptional photographer whose passion for photography shines through in his work. His photos are not only creative but also deeply resonate with and inspire us. Without hesitation, I would recommend Hayward for portrait photography.

Moreover, Hayward generously devoted his time to Women’s Expressions, tackling one of the most challenging tasks: capturing underwater photos. With his goggles and waterproof camera, Hayward fearlessly captured the essence of the models underwater. We extend our gratitude for his courage!

As the founder of HLX Photography, Hayward provides professional services for portraiture, fashion, and creative projects in the Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal areas. To explore his art further, visit:

She thoroughly enjoyed her time with Women’s Expressions, and we are delighted to have provided her with the opportunity to conduct a photo session with us. It was a mutually rewarding experience, and we cherished every moment spent with her.

Her enthusiasm extends to participating in community events and conventions, where she dresses appropriately for the occasion. After graduating from college, Gaby aspires to pursue further studies in event planning. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours!

Mélodie Bourgoin – Apprentice Photographer and Make-up Artist

Mélodie, having studied photography, is eager to put into practice all that she has learned. She has collaborated with Yves on various Women’s Expressions photo shoots and even took the lead as the main photographer for one of them. With her dedication, Mélodie is bound to refine her photography style and succeed.

Beyond her budding photography career, Mélodie is also a talented singer, having entertained audiences on boat cruises. It is my hope that Mélodie will lend her voice to the Women’s Expressions Theme Song, a composition yet to be created.
