Your brand’s visual identity includes a business headshot

If you think we live in a digital world and that human connection no longer matters, think again. However, people will probably see your face online before they hear your voice or shake your hand. Which means that subtle grin, that eye twinkle, that confident stare or that laugh-out-loud smile affects how the viewer perceives you and your brand.Casting portrait of a young model shot at Abelle Portrait Studio.

This idea leads me to reiterate the importance of a great business portrait. Technically, it should be above average, with flawless posing, lighting, retouching and composition to catch the viewers’ attention.

”Your headshot is like the logo of your personal brand.”– Giancarlo Pawelec for LinkedIn

The corporate portrait becomes one of the elements that make your business’ visual identity along with the logo, colours and typefaces used.

When you book a photo session, make sure your share your brand’s visual identity with the image creator. It is also a good idea to answer some of the following questions:
– What is the intention behind this headshot?
– How do you define yourself in business?
– What is the message or feeling you are trying to convey?
– How do you want to be photographed?
– Which platform or media is this image (images) going to be used?
– Will there be copy written onto it? Where will this text appear?

If you do not have an answer for most or any of the questions above, I can help you start the reflection and discussion around your future or current brand identity. I am not a branding expert by any means but I am a graphic designer and have helped small-businesses develop their brand. I will gladly share tips and content with you.

After the pre-shoot discussion, we can design a customized photo shoot for you and help you create the perfect image for you and your brand.

If your business requires some product shots or images of your services for the website or for printed documentation, this can easily be included.

 So take a look at your current headshot. Is it doing you and your company justice? If not, it’s time to fire it and get the job done right. – Kate L. Harrison for Forbes.com

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.

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.

Près de 10 ans séparent ces deux sessions de portraits de casting. C’est intéressant de voir la différence mais surtout la similarité entres les deux séries d’images. Tu vieillis en beauté, Dee.

Une question d’algèbre : Abelle Photographie

Abelle portrait fiançailles MontréalJ’aime l’algèbre. Oui, j’aime ça. Je suis prof de maths de formation. J’aime l’algèbre quand en plus ça donne ceci comme résultat: M + K = A. Soit: [M: Marjolaine, K: Keven, A: Alyce].

Ces images sont le résultat de 3 types d’équations: celles du premier degré, celles au carré puis, finalement, à la puissance de 3.

Quel privilège que de photographier ces 2 variables (maintenant 3) depuis les 3 dernières années, de leurs fiançailles, au mariage, à la grossesse jusqu’à la photographie de leur famille.
Ce qui est le plus beau, selon moi, est le fait qu’il la fait encore rire. Aux éclats.

The importance of a great headshot: Abelle Portraits

Whether it is to promote your personal blog, your small business, your business Facebook page or your LinkedIn profile a professional looking headshot is essential. Also called corporate portrait, I prefer the term “personal branding” photographs for this type of headshot. Most of us take great care in branding our business.

Professional corporate portrait: Abelle.ca

As your personality is an extension of your brand, I feel a quality well-lit headshot is equally important. What message are you trying to convey with this portrait? casual, friendly, approachable, fun, professional, trustworthy, elegant, feminine, strong, …
Here is a great article from the Huffington Post offering advice on the matter.

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.
