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 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.

Notre Dame CSS Ajax Graduate Experience

Notre Dame CSS Ajax Graduate Experience

nourished-logo

Grade twelve is a journey from teenagehood into adult hood. I wanted to start the session with traditional poses and then we walked the garden walkway to show off the gown, the hat and the journey she is about to embark on. It is always fun working with kids at this juncture as they finish secondary school and have life stretching out in front of them.

Creating some movement we had the client walk foot in front of one another to make a s-curve to her walk and then used the gown and hat/tassel in the wind to compliment the overall story.

To say it was windy during this session was an understatement. We had so many behind the scenes giggles as the hat was swept away but somehow managed NOT to drop it in the water feature even once. I had a good laugh, too, when before my client arrived a young boy was playing with his parents and during hide and seek walked right into the fountain!

Reflections and leading lines give the cool grey and architecture elements a sense of movement and colour. The wind was less in this spot but we still liked the hand on the hat in some of the images. I just love the school colours, after all we do like a purple here at Trinity Design.

When you find a perfect spot where you can climb a wall and bench, give your client the railing and let her relax into the experience. A few head turns to give mom a smile and we got this amazing shot – she just radiates beauty in this one. I wish every graduate would do outdoor sessions as they are so natural and double as senior portraits for your child(ren).

 

We loved working in this new location in Ajax and surely we will be back to explore more over this summer. If you like this location ask for images here at Pat Bayly Square in Ajax.

Downtown Brooklin Family Session

Downtown Brooklin Family Session

nourished-logo

Family sessions are one of my favourite types of work in the summer. The giggles of sisters, the parents giving the look, the simple act of capturing portraits in a moment in time. A moment that you will go back to as they grow, as time goes onward through seasons, grades and years.

Kids sometimes shine at different times in the session, I liked two of the images from the brick wall but preferred the way the little one opened up in the later images. There are no rules on how a session should go and sometimes kids need time to open up. This is why minis are not my favourite way to do family work because every child deserves time to shine.

Walking, talking and laughing – these are the images I love making because it speaks so much to the moments we do not capture. The closeness of a family and their aunt, the way a family works and supports one another throughout life’s moments.

Every. Single. Session. I will ask for a family hug. I love them. Expect a family hug in your session.

We had so much fun running up and down downtown Brooklin’s main drag. Balloons are optional but I loved the extra pop of colour they gave this session.

The cover image bears repeating. The vehicle a family car passed down with a lot of meaning. The girls are so sweet in the vehicle and it is for sure one of my favourites from this session.

Let us work with your family to create an out of the box session for your 2021 portraits (this session was taken in 2019).

Graduation – Two Sisters in Whitby

Graduation – Two Sisters in Whitby

Sisters graduating grade eight and grade twelve deserved nothing less than a celebration! I have been watching these two grow for years on the school yard and at the local dance studio. During this last wave both were so patient waiting for us to be able to capture these images. During the last announcement permitting Step 1 outside photos we jumped at the chance to get them in front od the camera.

The empty parking garage has become a regular spot for graduation sessions. As with all spots I frequent revisiting them gives me new opportunities to create different art – sometimes using what is there and sometimes by knowing what I can do with what is there. The darker spots I could see the lights peaking out but they were green and yellow, not the look I wanted for this session. Dovetailing in the colours I envisioned give the girls shots a the look I saw when taking them in my creative mind.

There is an unspeakable bond between sisters – a current that runs between them. There is of course a little sass, the inside jokes and looks and the giggles – something I see across all siblings – the giggles. This is not something just with girls – I see it in boys all the time. It always is amazing on camera – a tickle, a look – the smiles become real.

In the case of two graduates plan for extra time, we went about half an hour over time. There are outfits, grad gowns and various spots to walk to – times two graudates and sibling shots.

Inside the session it is also important to differentiate between the graduates so they get a look of their own, too. In the case of the younger sibling we embraced her bold personality and posed her in a way that was a little more edgy. For her older sister we found a more classic pose that suited her – she brought up the hand and I knew we had our shot.

Our sessions come with a gallery to choose your favourite poses and order print sheets for them (one package even has two sheets included).

Milestones : Whitby Birthday Photography Session

Milestones : Whitby Birthday Photography Session

nourished-logo

This Canadian kid turns double digits this summer, is there anything else cooler for a kid? Making sure you cover those milestones with a photography session.

Every birthday I work with my boys to create one milestone session with them. It’s not each child’s favourite evening with the exception of this guy who still plans the whole thing with me from props, to crazy things we can try and puts up with my expiramentation. 

Kids often will tell you they do not like photos. They have memories of being in front of cameras in the gym at school in the view of their peers and not in a setting that would inspire any young mind. Kids who work with me get to help create the end result.

We discuss where we are taking the session, what props they are feeling work for them and we move away from things that do not. There is an element of what is planned but there is the room to be free in choosing what works for the kid in front of the lens. 

This ten year old loves LEGO, building with polymer clay and making models out of cardboard. There are glue guns, exacto knives and paint all over the house in the wake of his creative spirit. He dreams in Minecraft and loves watching Star Wars cartoons and anything with a superhero. 

Our third son at double digits – forgive me if I am a little teary as I write this post. He’s no baby anymore.

With a new watch today our little energy bunny walked the house until he hit his 60 minute milestone. He is planning bike rides, walking and swimming all week, thanks Garmin for the extra motivation.

Is there anything more Canadian than that outfit and that smile? Adding in the flag a as a superhero cape worked well so inspire him to run around and enjoy the empty parking lot which has a been an unexpected space to work in the pandemic.

We work throughout the Durham Region (based in Olde Whitby) and the Greater Toronto Area, we even will travel to cottage country. Sessions are best made in spaces that have meaning and value to you. Your hometown, your cottage or the local beach. Include the dog and the kids and YOURSELF. Being in photos now means you get to see how awesome you looked years later and you leave images of you for your kids who trust me, think you are beautiful just as a you are.
