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.

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.

Mother’s Day Portrait Sessions, Chapter 1 : Abelle

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. Abelle portrait studio photo sessionWe 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.Glamour portrait photography studio: Abelle

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.

Personal Branding Photography Session: Abelle Portrait Studio

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.

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.

Elegant Makeover & Portrait Session: Abelle Fine Portraits

Makeover and Glamour Portrait Photography: Abelle
This lady came in contact with me through a member of local business woman, Lorrie Brown of L.B. Office Admin, member of BWB. She drove from Ottawa for this experience:  a hair and makeup pampering session (Thank you Erica) followed by a portrait photo shoot. There are many reasons why women wish to sit in the makeup chair and come to our portrait studio. In this case, the reason was simple: she wanted to do something special for herself.

Her resting face is a contagious grin. Not smiling is difficult for her and it made the session fun.
I think she loved the result. I know I do. Here are some of our favorite images.

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.
