We are delighted to be back working with long time clients as they launch a new website. A strong team in the mortgage industry you can now find their expertise at https://www.laframboisemortgage.ca/.

For each member we created headshots that will support them across social media platforms. Our clients are actively involved in creating images and we take suggestions you offer while shooting. The images for both Denise and Nicolee were part of Denise’s vision for the session making this a true collaboration of business and creativity.

The brick wall behind Charlotte and Syeda is in their office which is in the new building across from Brooklin’s Grass Park. Their stylish space is a wonderful place to sit and work out a new mortgage. We have had the pleasure of working with the team and can say they are all skilled

Using our Team Business package this team created a team photo alongside team headshots and a few additional images for social media to showcase the office. We are not sharing the entire shoot here because they are going to be using them in their own channels.

We have different levels of team business content for small, medium and large businesses that are developed to ensure the brand of the company is reflected in the final product. We offer natural light, studio and off camera flash lighting options that allow you to realize your brand images in a professional, high end way.

The Visual Story of Kristine Dandavino

The Visual Story of Kristine Dandavino

Kristine Dandavino is a teacher, an actor and a talented opera voice. She mentors and coaches local talent with her business Oshawa Piano and Voice http://www.oshawapianovoice.com/. When they say those who can’t teach they did not include the likes of a talent such as Kristine.

When she connected to update her headshots we discussed how she would use the images to audition and for social media usage. Acting has very specific needs and over top of that the opera world has it’s own. We crafted her poses and outfits to ensure her looks dovetailed with the types of roles she auditions for, a key component of an actor’s headshot.

Kristine had her makeup done by makeup artist The Many Faces of Beauty’s Stephanie Koktan. We kept our editing in keeping with the industry, maintaining major features so casting directors see the true version of the actor if present in our lighting of the face.

By pairing a tank top with a simple necklace and vegan leather jacket we get a timeless look for this headshot. The key to this shot is the position of the body which welcomes in the viewer to the actor’s portrait.

We finished up the session with a sensational image of Kristine wrapped in raw silk. Shot from a high angle this image is a nod to the Girl with a Pearl Earring. We amped up the volume as Kristine is a joy bringer, a room filler and she needed a portrait that spoke to the voice and beauty inside her. As they say on Tik Tok – I understood the assignment.

The Visual Story of Cathie Ellis : Creatiful Studios Whitby

The Visual Story of Cathie Ellis : Creatiful Studios Whitby

In working with Cathie we knew we wanted a downtown and urban feel to this session.

Cathie is an experienced graphic designer and visual artist. She has a passion for making the outsides of our buildings make sense . Numbers you can read, signage that works together, paint colours that bring it all together. A downtown location ties into the clientele she works with and their properties and brands. The art of design and way finding is why you can find your way through public spaces easily (or not so easily). 

Our chosen location is the new, modern and hip coffee shop Brock St. Espresso on the main street in Whitby. Owned by David and Lorena Purchase this new hot spot has a clean, modern look, lots of historical and modern touches and most importantly espresso. The window seating with the live edge counter was perfect to pair with some of Kerri King’s favourite art books, hat and immeasurable style. 

Using darker windows to make reflections is a great way to showcase a colourful downtown space’s colours and shapes without seeing letters and other branding that can interfere with our creation.

Cathie spends many a day at the local coffee shops working on a cup of hot cocoa while developing branding plans for her clientele. She loves Downtown Whitby and you can often find her sipping a cuppa at Brock St Espresso. Be sure to pop in to visit them – they are a staple in our downtown core.

Clients are meeting us more and more online. Having a strong set of images to show you and your working style is important. It creates an instant connection to you and your brand.

Family Photography – Aravinda

Family Photography – Aravinda

In our studio we created a series of portraits for this family in traditional Indian dress, formal and casual western wear. Each family, each story is unique and we work with you to create that special session.

durham-region-graduate-1

Capturing a family in studio often comes with myths. Dad won’t want to be there, teens will be sullen and so on. Dad brought such a special vibe to this session and the teen rocked his session – even doing a model pose. I come to each session without preconceived notions and let the dynamic unfold. 

I loved every minute of the traditional outfits. The patterns, fabrics and the cuts were so lovely.

More familiar are the western suits I grew up with in church and weddings. I love the juxtaposition after the formal Indian outfits.

Mom went all out and even had these great shirts made for a casual studio portrait.

Mom looked stunning in her sari – she is so beautiful and if I can a solo portrait of each parent is added to every session. We are in so few of the images we take for our family.

At the end of the day we ended up a a great range of Indian formal wear, western formal and casual portraits for this family. I can imagine how gorgeous this would look in a fall setting in the future.

University Graduate Session -Durham Region

University Graduate Session -Durham Region

Graduating from university is a huge milestone and again with pandemic effects impacting not just school but the locations of local big box graduation stores. This graduate ordered her own gown and hat (which we bought from her for our collection) and it looked amazing in the late summer greens and golden tones of her golden hours session.

We used both the south and north areas of this Ajax location to create a stylish and elegant session. The graduate is wearing a dress underneath so we used this technique of removing the gown to create a walk away photo of her. I like the look, the symbolism of walking into a new and exciting future. The slate and stone steps make for a lovely back drop.

I am often asked will glasses be an issue with my session. Most of the time with some creative posing, a little luck and some editing they are fine, even outdoors. However, the anti-glare coatings are a photographers best friend so if you have those (these had them) I will like you that much more!

Finding new ways to use areas I shoot in frequently is par for the course. In this spot I went high and asked the graduate to lean and look up. It is one of my favourite images from the summer. She looks amazing and it gives a great perspective – something new and fresh.

To book a session with us please fill out our Connect Form and we will send you information and follow up with a phone call to review. We have a two black gowns in tween and adult sizes, a blue gown as shown and matching hats. We also have this royal blue gown in Kindergarten size.

Working with actors to create professional headshot photos in Whitby, Ontario in our studio is one of my favourite things to do. Even more favourite are young actors who are already amazing at taking direction.

We worked with Jacob to create his first set of acting headshots. Do not let that first fool you, he is already at age nine an experienced actor with cast credentials on a new television series. Watch for him in the upcoming

When dressing for headshots as an actor bring solid shirts that will allow the focus to stay on your face in your headshot. This shirt has a small pattern which we removed to strengthen the impact of the image. I asked him to give me a stern look and he nailed this look with only that direction.

Every actor must update their shots yearly and when younger sometimes even moreso. A full body, half body and a headshot are the first three shots you MUST HAVE in your actor arsenal. We added in some cut off jean shorts and a white t-shirt to play up the converse shoes in this image.

actor-jacob-1

A professional headshot is markedly different than an actor headshot. We only edit what we need to in acting headshots, removing blemishes. We show the true face and that face must be current. Directors and casting staff need to see what you look like. So editing is minimal and complimentary to how the person looks.

The classic headshot is head and shoulders with a winning smile. It is essential the eyes are in focus for any headshot and anything less will not do for a professional headshot.

Sometimes I will have clients jump, dance or anything to relax them. In Jacob’s case we did it because it was fun – after all he is nine and fun is the name of the game.

If you need to update your acting headshots we would love to chat.
