Session photo de style magazine: Abelle

Parfois, on a le goût de jouer à la star. Parfois, c’est le regard que les autres posent sur nous qui nous aide à grandir.Magazine-style portrait photo session

Ça fait longtemps que j’attends la belle So. J’avais ce shooting en tête depuis plusieurs années. Puis, un dimanche d’automne, on eu la chance de concrétiser ce projet. Et, ça donné ceci:

Je me suis sentie vraiment entre les mains d’une professionnelle qui a su me mettre en confiance et me guider. J’ai tellement aimé l’expérience! Quel bel exercice pour rehausser sa confiance et son estime :))))

Ce n’est pas le maquillage, la coiffure et la robe qui rendent un portrait inoubliable. Ce sont les yeux qui sont le reflet de l’âme qui se trouve derrière ceux-ci.

Celebrating the Overcoming of Challenges: Abelle Portrait Studio

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory. George S. Patton

Business profile portraitThere are no words to describe this session. I decided to let my client share her story in her own words.

“Most of us know life can bring challenges that knock us down for a while. And even when we know things have started to turn around, this turn-around can take a while, in little steps at a time. When I moved to Brockville in 2015, it was to start over. I found Isabelle’s blog by a “happy accident.” And I put the beauty makeover photo shoot on my wish list for when I felt ready to “come back out” into the world. It took 3 years, but then I contacted her, which started the ball rolling. I was excited and scared, and questioning it all as I met with her beforehand and decided what I wanted to wear. But also afraid that what I had been hoping for so much would turn into another disappointment that I had to overcome.

Disappointment was never part of this experience – ever—not during the shoot nor when I saw the pictures. The shoot felt professional and Isabelle’s photography knowledge was front and centre. However, her compassion for her clients like me was also an integral part of the process. She knew and understood this was not an easy experience for people to go through. Yes she was gentle and considerate about it all. My pictures surprised me but also made me feel like I had found me again….yes, a bigger size, a little more wrinkled and looking older. But I now had something—physical evidence– that showed on the outside how much better I was feeling on the inside.

Abelle Loves: Made by Bees©

On my quest to reduce my use of plastic, especially single-use plastic, I found this product right in my neighborhood. I came across Priscilla, owner, and beekeeper, at yoga. She was gifting these wax-covered wraps to the owner-teacher-yogi. I inquired about these and found out that she was the maker of these gems and had them in stock.
These wraps are useful and cute and they smell nice.

Boutique photography studio: Abelle

These are the large-sized wraps which I use most of the time.

I also got a few of these packets. They contain a mix of seeds of plants that attract bees. They make great hostess gifts for people who don’t drink wine.

This is a kit containing a wrap in each of the three sizes: small, medium and large.

Isn’t the bee-shaped wax seal on the back of the packaging the cutest?

The large 13″x13″ completely covers my medium-sized bowl and is perfect for large bowls as well.

High School Student Portraits: Abelle Celebrates Teenage

When I hear comments like: «Today’s youth are lazy.», «In my days, we were better at (fill in the blank)», etc. I think to myself that we are dead wrong about young adults. There are so many creative, eager, good-natured, whole-hearted and smart young people out there.

With high school graduation and prom season around the corner, this next post is a reminder that thousands of young men and women are about to start a new and significant chapter in their life. We love to photograph them in our studio to immortalize them at this very important stage in their life.

High school senior portrait photography studioHere is one such example. Angelique is an outstanding young woman. I have the pleasure of working with her in the studio. I wanted to capture her youth forever.

She willingly agreed to spend a few hours with me, at the studio. We tried out the new gear.

Indeed, Christmas came early as we invested in some «light-in-a-can» portrait studio photography equipment. There is only so much daylight November and December can bring.

Doesn’t she remind you of Grace Kelly?

Our portraits celebrate people of any age. Young, middle-aged and mature women sit in front of our camera. Let’s celebrate you; because every stage of life is worth celebrating.

A Few Shades of Grey: Abelle Portraiture

Remember this woman?

Back in 2015. A very different look.

Natasha was the face of a few of Abelle’s promotional pieces back in 2015 and 2016.
Well, look at her now!

It takes courage to go gray and for Natasha, it was a journey. Courage is this woman’s middle name.

Rocking the Silver Pixie Cut!

After choosing to live a chemical-free life, it became clear that she would eventually have to make that decision. I cannot believe how stunning she looks. Look at the other glamorous portraits of her taken a few years ago.

She, too, has changed a lot since 2015!

Another Inspirational Woman: Makeover and Photo Shoot at the Studio

This November day was dark and gloomy but the studio was all lit up by this woman’s spirit and energy. She has amazing skin, a charming smile and a contagious laugh.Abelle Glamour studio portrait photography session.

We sorted through her suitcase and pulled together a number of different outfits to create a custom magazine-style photo shoot for her. One that included some business attire and other outfits for beautiful personal portraits. These images are precious for Terrie. Over time, they will be even more significant for her two children.

For this woman, purple is more than a favorite colour. It is a reminder of how strong women, like her, are.

Lauren and I are blessed to have spent an unforgettable afternoon at the studio getting to know this wonderful woman warrior and mother of two.

Abelle: A Beauty Portrait Session to Celebrate a New Chapter

This woman is a force to be reckoned with. I am grateful our paths crossed and that I was able to have her come in for a photo shoot. To say we had fun is an understatement. We would do this every week!

During our pre-shoot consultation, she warned me a number of times that I would be challenged with a strange smile that was way too large and squinty eyes. Well, I looked for those  traits and they didn’t show up. All I could see was inner beauty, grace and light. What about you? What do you see? Abelle beauty makeover and glamour studio photo shoot.

She booked this photo shoot for many personal reasons. However, professionally these images are significant. She is redesigning her life as a mother, a wife, a friend, a business professional and a woman.
This session revealed a number of things: that she is a woman and not the tomboy she may be perceived to be; that she is not only smart but attractive; that she has more strengths than she thought and, that the camera loves her.

Stay tuned. This soulful professional is about to take on the world.

On-location Natural Light Portrait Photo Shoot: Abelle

Where were you during this last snow storm? I was snowed in. In Sutton. Snow heaven. With St-Patrick’s day a couple of days away, I felt the Celtic vibe. So I played with glass and shot these portraits. In natural window light. In the recreational room. Next to the piano.

This is Edith, mother of two and professional organizer at Haven Maven. If you don’t know what a professional organizer does, then find out. Everyone needs one at one time or other. This service will transform your life. We had already shot a corporate head shot session and created a casting portfolio for Edith. This session was a styled beauty photography session.

About the photography sessions:
When you reserve your photo shoot, we map it out ahead of time, in person, over phone or via Skype. This is to ensure we produce portraits/images that reflect the look, feel, theme and emotions you wish to convey. That is true for all types of photo sessions: glamour, lifestyle, family, boudoir, pregnancy or corporate head shots. Having a planned photo session is reassuring, is more time-efficient and keeps us focused. It is also a whole lot of fun!
