Scarlet's Story

My name is Scarlet O’Neill & here is my story. I am a photographer. I am an artist. I am a lover. I am passionate & I stand by my person. I live each day to it’s fullest, fantastically, gracefully, courageously & full of heart. Photography is my way of bringing some sweetness to the world. I am a soundtrack queen. Play me a song and I can tell you what movie it’s from. I eat cookie dough out of the Pillsbury package - by the fridge, door still ajar. I squeal with excitement and sometimes jump up & down from it. I look ten years younger than I am, but feel ten years older. I have been photographing since I could hold a camera. I love taking photographs more than anything else. I love making people smile. I love capturing moments for a lifetime of smiles. I love getting to know the people in front of my camera, through and through. Be good to me and I will give you my heart. I want my images to mean something & I want them to evoke laughter, tears and ear-to-ear deep down inside happiness. I want you to see how beautiful you are, how in love that special someone is with YOU. I believe that every single bride is beautiful. I believe in love at first sight. My style is creative, elegant, quirky, modern & vintage, but beyond anything else- timeless. I love old love stories, new love tales and endless kisses. I will take real photos of you & your loved ones. I will show you things that you may have missed or never known. I love fairy tales, but I double love real stories. I can’t wait to tell yours. I really, really love what I do.

‘I’d climb the highest mountain,
And I’d sail across the sea,
Baby for you I’d do anything
I’d fly up to the moon,
I’d paint your gray skies a beautiful blue
Just to get one step closer to you’ – Shane Harper

And, these two, well, they would and definitely could climb the highest mountain :)

Chloe & Daniel are one of the sweet couples that is making me insanely excited to ring in the New Year and get to 2015. These two have hearts of gold and their hearts shine the brightest when together. There exist such comfort, comradery, and extra sweet love between them. I cannot wait to see them tie the knot (and not just the wall climbing rope knot, although they have that one mastered).

Thank you for choosing me to be the lucky photographer to create a lifetime of images you’ll cherish. Love you, mean it xo.

What’s a party or yummy dinner celebration without a little sweetness?

And, how simple and easy it is to take one of the yummiest chocolates out there, like Ferrero Rocher, and use it pretty much everywhere. The holidays are lovely but they sure are extra sweet when you add in a little chocolatey goodness.

So much cheer was had with Ashley Lindzon who put together this sweet holiday table along with some dazzle (through MUA) with Ashley Readings and our beautiful Nicole Rose Bond as the hostess with the most-est.

Happy Holidays to everyone, it’s already such a sweet month. I cannot wait for all that it will bring. xo

This sweet family has become one of the highlights of my career. I became especially close to these new parents, who at the time were just smitten kittens, when they did their laundry, undies and all, in front of me at their engagement shoot. I mean, really, undies are quite the bonding experience – it’s like next step territory.

Then, they brought me to Montreal, where they shared the very special day of their wedding with me.  It was a colourful love fest complete with an epic (and totally awesome) bridal party. They all piled out of a bus in record timing to stand in the middle of a main road and simultaneously threw their umbrellas when the rain stopped for a  5.6 seconds burst of photos in between rain spells and then later, dropped trow and ate sprinkled donuts. And, well, friends are the company you keep, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ashley & Jeff are quite the special pair.

Then, a new furry addition was added to the family. Their dog, Knight, the sweetest Australian Shepperd, moved into their happy home. But, soon enough Knight was told that he was going to be a big furry brother and then came the baby.

Chloe Summer. Born August, the month of their marriage, the month they met, the month all the love started.

And now, Ashley, Jeff, Knight plus Chloe equals perfection and I couldn’t be happier for these sweet beings. I am so touched I’ve been able to document all these chapters of your lives. I feel truly honoured. All my love, mean it xo.

PS. I cannot believe we caught Chloe’s first smile ever in a photograph. That moment might go down as best ever. Definitely had to start off the post with it. Oh my.. what a smile!

November is always a bittersweet month for me.

It’s the month of my favourite season, my birthday (which I am almost always sick on, here’s hoping this year is different). It’s the month I am the most tired with the most amount of work on my plate. It’s the also the month that always brings on the most change and the month that my nights are often spent not sleeping, but pondering the entire year. It’s the month of reflective moments, changes, realizations and the most heart wrenching. But, it’s also always one of the best months of the year for me. This month I go from my twenties to my thirties (despite still looking about nineteen) and as some of you know, its been something I’ve been quite stuck about. But, that’s for another post real soon ;)

I’ve been a little busy bee for the past little while working on things that will be new to me and new to you (you loves who are so very supportive of my work and my life). One new little thing that I was ever excited about last month was my new portfolio website and now that it’s up, I have been working very hard to prepare blog posts all about the magical days that were my 2014. It’s true that I was hogging some of my best images & days so that the portfolio site was full of new content. With that, plus the combination that blogging takes a backseat to my shooting, my editing, my meeting of new inspiring people, my blog hasn’t been true to my year and all it’s goodness. So, one thing to change for the upcoming months is the love my blog gets.

I’ve been quietly making little changes for my work & life over the past little while and I’m very eager to start sharing with you these wonderful little things, some small, but each one so very important to the process of creating the images that take up each day. I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with all the couples, families and team of insanely creative & talented individuals this year. And with only a handful of shoots and four weddings left, my heart is ever so full.

Just wanted to say thank you and so much more on it’s way. Love  you, mean it xo.
