Boudoir

Creating Timeless Portraits That Will Be Cherished by Family Forever by Elena Golijanin

I had the honour of photographing actress Gregoriane Minot, cast on The Real Housewives of Toronto and co-host of What’s Cooking with Grego and Ada .

Grego came to my photography studio in Toronto looking for some classic timeless, creative portraits. During the consultation we discussed her passions and I learned about her passion for dance, in particular ballet. We used some flowing silks that created lyrical movement in the images. We also used our spring blossoms to create some light and airy artistic portraits. After, we took some tasteful and classy boudoir photos just for fun, because every woman needs to have this experience! A talented Toronto designer Maret Kendra lent us a gorgeous pair of her handmade angel feather wings to use for a Victoria’s Secret Angel look.

Grego returned to the studio a few weeks later with her daughter Camelia for a Mother and Daughter portrait session. These portrait photos capture the beautiful bond and connection between a mother and her child and are photos the two can cherish forever.

For Grego, the portrait session was not just about creating beautiful photos for herself, but for everyone who loves her. This is what Grego herself had to say about what this photo session meant to her: “Having my pictures taken by Elena was a true privilege. Her portraits are more than pictures - they render elegance, movement and femininity. Thank you for capturing these timeless works of art my family and I will forever cherish.”

A "Feel good" photoshoot | Toronto Portrait Photographer by Elena Golijanin

As a portrait photographer, I often have the opportunity to meet people at various important stages in their lives. One of the biggest joys I get is in helping someone through a difficult transition in their life through my lens. 

This photo session was one of those incredible opportunities. I met Sephra at the National Women’s Show in Toronto and was drawn not only to her physical beauty but her inner beauty as well. She had recently been through some rollercoaster events in her life, and wanted to do a photoshoot as part of her self-love journey. She wanted to feel elegant and beautiful and have those moments captured through a lens. A portrait photoshoot was an opportunity for her to reconnect with the beautiful woman that she is. 

We started the day in our Toronto photo studio with hair and make up to make her feel incredibly beautiful before getting in front of the camera and as we started shooting I could see her embracing her beauty and coming into her own as a strong and powerful woman. 

A photoshoot can be a transformational moment in a person’s life, especially after a major life changing event, and that’s how I felt about this shoot. We captured several looks in this photoshoot; from elegant boudoir photos using silks, to classy glamour using gorgeous tulle skirt from our studio wardrobe, to professional headshot photos for LinkedIn and strong online presence.

This is what Sephra had to say about her photoshoot experience:

"Elena is an amazing photographer with an eye to see the beauty we neglect to see in ourselves. Her approach is fun, calm and empowering. Elena's experience and expertise is worth your time and money. Special thanks to her amazing make-up & hair team as well. It's the beauty of who she is that infects us all to shine and glitter. I highly endorse & recommend."

Here is our selection of favourite images from this special photoshoot.

Toronto Portrait Photographer | Summer in the City | Editorial Style Portrait Session by Elena Golijanin

Summer is almost over.. Isn't it sad that we wait for this beautiful time of year for so long and then it goes by so quickly? Oh well :) We make the most out of it. As much as I LOVE shooting in our Toronto photo studio - I do enjoy taking my clients outside to the streets of Toronto for editorial style beautiful portraits. I love working with natural light, and with beautiful summer sun that gives this gorgeous warm glow! Shooting in natural light also makes you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your photoshoot. We grabbed a big puffy skirt, a part of our photography studio wardrobe, and went for a little walk around the Osgood Hall  in downtown Toronto, as well as the garden on top of the Toronto City Hall.

Our beautiful Muse Joseffa looks effortlessly beautiful, elegant and classy in her photographs. I have yet to meet a woman who doesn't like to play dress up! Please enjoy our selection of images from her Summer in the City shoot!

Toronto Portrait Photography Studio | Editorial Style Birthday Photoshoot by Elena Golijanin

It's your BIRTHDAY!

Even more so... it's one of those fun, milestone birthdays.. What do you do to remember the day, and yourself during that stage in your life? Why you book a photoshoot with us, of course! Christine is an incredibly talented makeup artist, TV personality (you will learn all the new makeup trends from her on The Mariln Denis Show), and a super fun, smart, beautiful woman with sparkling personality and an amazing sense of humour. One of those people you just want to become friends with as soon as you meet them. She came to our Toronto photo studio with a few of her favourite sparkly little dresses, and her boyfriend to keep her company.  With some celebratory bubbles along the way, we had the most fun, sexy, editorial style photoshoot for her! We created elegant beauty portraits, contemporary glamour and editorial style portraits (who doesn't want that cover girl experience), and some boudoir looks, shooting with the gorgeous Victoria's Secret inspired black ostrich wings created by Maret's Designs. We created so many beautiful, glamorous and sexy looks for this birthday girl at our Toronto portrait studio! And... just because her boyfriend tagged along for the shoot - we just had to take at least one photo of them together, they are a super cool and beautiful couple.

Thank you Christine for trusting LivePixels Photography with your portraits! We loved having you at our studio!

Please enjoy our selection from Christine's photoshoot!

If you want to book a shoot of your own, or give it to someone as a gift - please call me anytime (416) 275-9506! I'd love to chat!  

Yours,

 

Elena

Beauty Portraits Inspired by Spring by Elena Golijanin

Beauty portraits will make you feel glamorous and sexy, something every woman deserves.  The natural beauty of Miss S. surrounded by beautiful spring blooms, and gorgeous evening light was my inspiration for these portraits.  Spring is everyones favourite season.  The days get longer, the air is filled with the scent of  flowers in bloom, while everything comes to life with anticipation of the warm days of summer.  These intimate portraits were created in a stunning setting of the Niagara region during full bloom.  Please enjoy some of the images from this recent creative beauty portrait photo shoot.
