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.

Wedding at Maplehurst Manor & Carriage House, Maitland Ontario: as seen by Abelle Photography

These lovebirds exude youthfulness and vitality. They are creative and talented musicians. To photograph them was a treat. This wedding took place at the end of a glorious warm summer. The groom’s last name inspired the peacock theme and the navy and green colour scheme.

The venue is superb. Set on the side of the St-Lawrence Seaway, at the mouth of the Thousand Island in Maitland, Ontario, is Maplehurst Manor and Carriage House: “a magnificent Georgian Style Manor overlooking the beautiful St. Lawrence River.“ The historical manor has a Downton Abbey feel.

The bride revealed her gown to her father before the ceremony. This “Father Reveal“ was very touching.

The couple didn’t wish to see each other before the ceremony for a first look. However, they shared a prayer prior to the ceremony. This was another emotional moment.

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.

Beauty Makeover and In-Studio Elegant Photography Session: Abelle Portraits

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.

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.

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.

Empowering Women One Makeover Beauty Portrait At a Time: Abelle Photography

Women. We are strong and vulnerable at the same time. We love our sibblings, family, partners and children to bits. We love to have photographs of the people we love in our space. When the camera is turned toward us, many of us don’t feel pretty enough. ”I’ll get my photograph taken when I lose 10 pounds, when I get my hair cut or colored, when I get a tan,… Not me. Not now.”

The makeover and beauty portrait photoshoot experience is fun. The beautiful photographs created are secondary. It’s the experience, the pampering session that often leads to the start of a beautiful transformation that is more than skin deep. Women feel empowered.
Exist in photographs is a beautiful movement that strives to change that. Photographs of you are the best gift you can give the people in your life. #existinphotos.
