Photo shoot Abandoned Church


This week I tagged along with Tim on one of his fashion photography photo shoots to get some photographs for Dressember. We drove to the Cowichan Valley to an abandoned church for our amazing on-location photo shoot. This abandoned church provided a beautiful backdrop to be able to take photos for Dressember.

Dressember is a fundraising event I love to participate in every year. Our team, Team Ola Dubois is wearing a dress everyday in December to raise awareness and money to stop human trafficking.

40 plus million people in the world are trapped in human slavery in the world today. Children as young as 4 years old are being exploited as slaves. Cybersex human trafficking, trafficking boys and girls for sex and slavery of young children for fashion are some of the forms of slavery I am most passionate about ending, but there are unfortunately many other forms as well. Please join our team, wear a dress everyday in December and help us to end human slavery.

I would love to have you join us for our Team Ola Dubois this year for Dressember. We have a goal to raise $10K to stop human trafficking. Dani from Ola Dubois makes beautiful dresses from reclaimed and sustainable material. I am grateful to have her support this year and look forward to introducing you to her in future vlogs and through her dresses.

If you are new here I will be putting out more vlogs about Dressember and sustainable fashion in the coming weeks, so if that interests you, be sure to subscribe.

With so much gratitude, Melissa
