Featured Artist & Stylist: KELLY

We can’t say enough amazing things about this beautiful lady. She is so full of love, positivity, drive and incredible talent. Kelly has been apart of the Avenue Beauty team for well over 6 years and we have loved every moment it. Her training started back in her native Chicago where she worked with Stewart Talent Modelling Agency in the commercial print department. From there, her talents took her doing photoshoots, weddings and reality tv. As a cast member of the Bachelor in 2003, she was able to continue her practice on her cast mates as well as for her post appearances including The View, Oprah and Ellen.

Once meeting her amazing husband (not from the bachelor), life took them over to Europe for a bit of time and she was able to continue her artistry on fashion shoots, public relation tours, red carpet events and personal styling. Her excitement for doing makeup, hair & fashion stems from using her beauty skills on a client’s outer beauty, which in turn makes that individuals inner beauty soar from within.

Kelly loves working in the Calgary market around her family and skincare business. As a mother of 2 gorgeous girls, she is an incredible example to not only them but so many others. We are continually inspired by her balance of her personal life & work life, seeing her continually grow in so many ways and seeing her create so many beautiful looks!

If you have had the delight in working with Kelly, you can certainly agree that her love of the craft, infectious smile & laugh, and amazing talent shines through at every booking. We are beyond lucky to have Kelly on our team and can’t wait for you to experience her incredible talent.


Rustic Italian Inspired Wedding

August 2018

Rustic Italian Inspired Styled Wedding as Featured in Ruffled Blog January 2019


It was the perfect summer day in YYC for the vision of this styled photoshoot to come to life. We are beyond grateful to have been on board this incredible styled shoot that was inspired from the old world beauty of Italy- showcasing its beautiful earthy colors, soft hues, textures & timeless elegance.

Our location was in the beautiful Baker Park located in Bowness – it created the perfect back drop full of lush greenery. The inspiration for the brides hair & makeup was ‘elegant simplicity’. We wanted to create a style that was elegant yet effortless, and one that showcased & complimented the stunning hair piece designed by Joanna Bisley. Nikki has gorgeous locks to work with, and with a softly textured, low ponytail with some detailing in in the back, we felt it was a perfect fit with the accessories and the gorgeous gown. We wanted to keep her makeup light and fresh to compliment the details of the hair & softness of the dress and to ensure it fit with the light and airy summer style.

Being able to do a collaboration of any size is such an inspiring & beautiful project for us. It allows us to see other amazing vendors in their element, allows us time to chat as often on wedding days, we don’t have those moments and allows us to expand our creativity in different styles/applications.
