The Queen, her work and her castle. 🙂

Melissa Doherty: owner of The Queen’s Crumb

She’s sweet, delightful, bubbly, genuine, talented, sophisticated and passionate. She is the queen of The Queen’s Crumb. Her name is Melissa and she is the talented artist behind Ottawa’s premier cake and confectionery company operating in Ottawa’s Westboro district. She left a paralegal career to pursue her passion. To top it off, she also has great marketing and business flair!

We met at the Millisle Bed and Breakfast in Merrickville, Ontario on a super hot and muggy Summer afternoon. The Millisle B & B is a historical three-storey Victorian mansion. Check out this elegant Bed & Breakfast here:

We had to stay focused on the corporate portraits we wanted to create as we could have easily photographed for days in this sumptuous historical gem. I was thinking that a Boudoir photo shoot there would be absolutely divine!

Although I mostly photograph people in intimate settings such as weddings, anniversaries and family portrait sessions, we were trying to create portraits that were not too square. The goal is to portray a person’s personality through the images. Here are some images of the woman and artist behind The Queen’s Crumb. How did we do?
