The Business of Connecting to Life

The Business of Connecting to Life

Last summer we created some new content for local Brooklin chiropractor Dr. du Quensay. Her clinic is located at 134 Baldwin St. N. with ample parking in site for patients.

Our initial consultation we discussed what her business content would be used for. In her case a website was being recreated and she had very specific visions for how and what content she wanted to see in the new site.

We knew we wanted to feature the clinic from the street so patients who are new to the practice could find the building from the road. In addition, to show the gardens near the parking area which ties into the overall brand.

Not to be left out Dr. du Quensay’s story are her two dogs who she and her husband walk throughout the downtown every day. We found some time during the session to walk downtown and capture them on a local bench.

We had such a great time working with Dr. du Quensay and her team. To see more see our video on Tik Tok from our backyard shoot : https://www.tiktok.com/@trinitydesign/video/7112121440387878150

Parents Therapeutic Massage – Business Photos

Parents Therapeutic Massage – Business Photos

A business brand is one of your most valuable tools. It is also okay to not have been born with the ability to write copy, take photos and film video. The most professional approach is to bring in the professionals who can help you build a brand that tells your story.

That is just what this amazing business owner did when she hired us. She worked with a business coach to redesign her business, website and after researching she decided to connect with us to do her photos. 

Clients spend time telling us what they need so we can provide the package that fits their needs and budget. We do a walk through to determine the best way to capture the images that line up with their brand.

Images can be functional – like showing the room you work in or the front of the building (if applicable). Melissa has a warm and welcoming massage room with black out curtains, a soft teal paint on the wall and a warm wood floor. A photo conveys this quickly so your client knows how it will feel in the space, exception the lights would be dimmed here.

Images can show you at work, we captured many images of Melissa doing her craft (fully lit for storytelling purposes). Her services range from massage services, mobile massages, Craniosacral therapy, Integrative manual therapy and infant massage.

We also picked a few of the tools she uses and sells to allow her to showcase them in social media posts that will drive back to her website. The images are in the same shoot and feel connected to the overall branding.

We are delighted with the final images on the website and we highly encourage you to look Melissa up.

The Visual Story of Susan Kay-Dunn

The Visual Story of Susan Kay-Dunn

Above a simple black jacket paired with a scoop tank top and a meaningful jewelry piece creates a modern look for her.

The world during the pandemic has changed the landscape of how we work and as a result having a headshot that represents you is essential. First impressions are still the most important thing when meeting new colleagues and clients – so by using a professional headshot artist you are literally putting your best “face” forward. 

Our brains can absorb a lot from a photo – is this person trust worthy? is this person someone I would like? like to work with? is this someone who is good at their job. Professional imagery done well creates a strong first impression versus a cellphone shot or worse, a cropped shot from the last wedding you attended.

In Susan’s office there is no office. They work virtually and have as a new team formed during the pandemic. While face to face is not out of the question the norm for her is Zoom and other online meeting zones. So with this in mind we started looking at how to create her headshots to reflect who she is. In her world chances are 100% of the people spend time with her photo – not her in person.

When dressing for headshots much like any portrait we ask bring solid shirts and jacket that will allow the focus to stay on your face in your headshot. We levelled up this studio jacket Susan borrowed by changing it from an olive green to a purple that suited her hair and her personality. As a purple lover myself I was all in on that change. It also provided a more modern colour story with the navy background.

Susan is a modern, fun and educated woman. We wanted her portraits to show this immediately and reinforce her position as a Chief Pension Officer. These options give her room to change it up from time to time – the main reason we offer a 3 image package is the flexibility it gives clients.

This use of a paper lined surface to create a faux desk is one of my new favourite ways to stage a headshot. It creates a lovely modern “desk” and allows for the client to sit forward, elongating the body through the neck and shoulders for that perfect pose an modern headshot.

If you need to update your professional headshots we would love to chat. In a world that seems to still be embracing Zoom it’s not a nice to have, it’s a must have.
