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

This elegant lady and I are connected. We come from the same little farm town. A town so small it wasn’t even on the map when I was growing up: Iron Hill, Quebec.
She says she came upon journalism later on in life. She is a freelance writer, marketer and TV producer and host. She is also an avid community supporter and promoter of the community in which she lives and serves. She has an knack for networking. Listening to her talk about her engagements for the upcoming week made me tired. She is a vivacious, curious, inspiring and authentic.
She came fully prepared for the session. During the pre-shoot consultation, we talked about what to wear and how to get ready for the shoot. We discussed outfit choices: colours, material, necklines, textures and accessories. I would give her an A+ for the getting ready part of the shoot. This made things easier for us during the photography session. I feel the portraits below are the result of a great team effort.
Erica Wright MUA worked her magic during the beauty makeover session. The result is stunning. I love Doreen’s short strawberry blond hair and those blues eyes. (Somehow the images of Anne Murray and a younger Judi Dench kept popping up in my mind during the photo shoot. Do you see it too?). She didn’t even look at her reflection once the hair and makeup transformation was finished. Then, together we created these elegant photographs.
Thank you Doreen for this memorable opportunity.
This is what 30 looks like:
She is a tall, beautiful, independent and intelligent woman.She is bilingual. She is funny. She loves to travel. She is a role-model for her students. She is a fashion police and has used her authority on me. 🙂 She is a 2016 bride. Jean-Pierre Ferland said it best: C’est à 30 ans que les femmes sont belles. These are a few of Gen’s beauty portraits taken in natural light on a quiet Sunday morning.
Whether you are 29 forever or 72, what are you celebrating?
We met at a business luncheon. Months later, Ms Judy contacted me. She was ready for her beauty makeover and glamour photo shoot experience. This natural beauty moved so well in front of the camera. These are a few of the dozens of stunning portraits we created in the studio. Below is what she had to say about the shoot.
“I want to share how enjoyable my experience was during my beauty makeover and photo shoot with Isabelle. It is so nice that we have this service available right here in Brockville. I arrived at the studio and was made to feel very comfortable. Isabelle explained the process to put me at ease and we started with a couple of ‘before’ shots. I then moved into another room for the transformation of my hair and makeup with Erica. This was fun and I learned tidbits of advice regarding doing makeup and using hair product. Once the hair and makeup was completed, Isabelle had chosen some outfits from the clothes I had brought along for the photo shoot and we began the photography session. I will admit that I was a little nervous but she put me completely at ease. It is amazing to watch her at work creating the perfect lighting and poses. With a few simple words, she was able to direct me to create poses that were not only artistic but also strategically made me look the most beautiful, slender and relaxed before the camera. We changed outfits and with each one Isabelle was able to create the perfect pose for the mood expressed by that piece of clothing.
I must admit, in my family I have always been the one taking photos of everyone else. Rarely will you see me in pictures taken a family events or vacations. I have felt awkward in front of the camera, never knowing quite how to smile or what facial expressions to give. Isabelle was a genius at giving me directions to elicit the look she wanted to evoke. It was effortless and fun and I felt more beautiful than ever before.
Once the photos were processed, I came back to the studio to view the finished products. I was amazed at how lovely the photographs looked with just the right lighting, poses and expressions. There were so many great shots it was difficult to choose which ones I wanted.
Thank you Isabelle for such a great experience and highly recommend having a beauty makeover photo shoot. I guarantee you will never realize the beauty others see in you until you have your own session.”
I also wanted to share a bit about Judy’s interesting life:
“I have had several careers in my life: physiotherapist, lactation consultant, scuba dive master, business administrator; also hockey/baseball/lacrosse mom to two sons and a boat racing wife to a hydroplane boat racer.
Currently I am an author of an action/adventure novel with a message: Voices in the Wilderness (by Judith Utman). I have recently embarked on a new adventure taking a modelling and acting course for a new phase in my life. Who knows where this will take me! This photo shoot is a wonderful experience for modelling in the future.”
