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.

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.

Before and After Baby Number Three: Family Portrait Sessions

This next photo shoot, actually photo shoots, is of a gorgeous family of 5. Made up of three little boys who are full of beans, a mom and a dad, a dog and chickens. There is never a dull moment in this household.
Only a few weeks after delivering baby number 3, she was out on the ski hill with the two oldest boys.Abelle family portrait photography

Then came boy number 3: Grayson.Abelle family portrait photographer Abelle family portrait photographer

When I met them this Fall, they were just finishing some major home renovations including an entire addition. Where they find the energy, I don’t know. All I know is that this family is GORGEOUS, friendly, funny and authentic. I love them to bits.

People often ask What do you do? “I am a photographer’ isn’t enough“. This is what I do: I photograph connections and love and give families heirloom images of moments. Portraits that will stand the test of time. It is an honour and a privilege to do this for people and their families.

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.

Aujourd’hui, ils attendent impatiemment une petite fille. C’est en studio que je les ai rejoins pour cette session de photographie en lumière naturelle.
Je suis certaine que la petite puce qui pousse sera bien entourée.
Ces images sont un beau complément à leurs photos de mariage.

Montreal Family Photo Session: Abelle photographie

Rewind to July 14, 2012. One of the warmest days on record. A & C tied the knot at Auberge des Gallant. I went through 2 sweat wristbands and drank 3 liters of water in one afternoon photographing their wedding.

Fast forward to 2015: V is a newcomer to this beautiful, funny and endearing family. It was time for new family photographs so that’s what we did last Sunday morning.
These images were created with the wonderful help of dogs, a bubble gun and a sippy cup.

50 is Fabulous: Elegant Portraits by Abelle Photography

She is a mother, a wife, a teacher and a writer. She pushes young minds to do their best; to work hard and to reach for the stars. She inspires young women to be all they desire to become. She is a great cheerleader and cares for so many around her. She truly is an inspiration to me.

So without hesitation, J. said yes to this beautiful hair and makeup makeover followed by an elegant portrait photography session held at our boutique apartment. Expert Sharon, an experienced and talented hair & makeup artist, created this natural look for J. I then guided her through this professional photo shoot.

I think now may be the first time I feel the difference between looking beautiful and being beautiful. This talented and creative writer IS beautiful, inside and out.

I love quotes, so I thought I’d throw this one in (makes me sound smart): “Poetry creates the myth, the prose writer draws its portrait.– Jean-Paul Sartre

Now taking reservations for June. Contact me directly at: 514-259-5006 or info@abelle.ca

More than photographs – Abelle is building connections

Over the years, I’ve never taken the time to acknowledge and be grateful for the words of love I get from clients who often turn into friends. Every year, former clients (weddings, portraits, family, baby, belly photography sessions,…) take time to reach out and send me words of gratitude and thank you cards, not just at Christmas but year round. I am blessed with amazing clients who touch my heart and remind me how lucky I am to be a people and portrait photographer.
