Remember this woman?
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.
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.
Here is to celebrating the different stages of life! What stage do you wish to celebrate?

Natasha is an energy worker: a Reiki Master Practitioner and teacher, a Young Living Essential Oil Aficionado. She is also a Raindrop Technique massage therapist.
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.
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.
In early April, we carried out a Mother’s Day Portrait promotion. After seeing the ad in the local paper, this young woman (Jody), mother of two little munchkins and professional massage therapist, contacted me. She needed to update her family portraits. I convinced her to come early and get portraits of her done as well. We had the phone consultation; went over Abelle’s Getting-Ready Guide and set a date. She gets an A+ for having selected great outfits and accessories for her and her children.
The session was split into two parts. First, we took care of her. Kathy worked her magic with Jodys hair and makeup. We photographed her in various outfits. Her grace and beauty in the portraits are remarkable. She got more and more comfortable in front of the camera as the session progressed.
Secondly, her two precious munchkins arrived. We then set up a fast paced portrait session that included giggles and a snack break.
Lastly, I saw Jody again for her reveal and sales session. She went home with a set of precious portraits for her home.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to take part in creating these priceless portraits for your family.
The initial request was for a new portrait for this business woman’s website. What started as a phone consultation for a corporate portrait photography session morphed into a double-duty session: a personal branding portrait session followed by a beauty makeover and glamour photo shoot.
How you look +
How you speak +
+ How you act = Your personal brand.
Erica worked with L. to create a professional and natural look.
We worked on creating a couple of business outfits using the suitcase of clothes L. had brought along. 30 minutes later, we had enough corporate portrait images to choose from.

After the personal branding portraits portion was finished, we touched-up the makeup. Out came the sparkly and the cocktail dresses for this part of the shoot.
She is a business owner, a mother and grandmother and a woman full of life. She needed a new corporate portrait for LinkedIn and her other social media profiles. She had the honesty to come into the photography studio and say: “I didn’t know what to bring. I either like wearing these outfits or people have complimented me on them. So I brought them all.” I think you nailed it. A+ on your selection Marjorie!
Thank you for the privilege. -Isabelle

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.
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.
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.
