Family portrait

Toronto Portrait Photographer | Toronto Family Portraits | LivePixels Photo Studio by Elena Golijanin

Family photos were always a huge part of family legacy for me. I am very close with my parents.  To this day, almost every time I visit with them I ask for my Dad to bring the box full of photos down, and I can spend hours looking at our family memories. My Dad always had a camera with him, and I am so grateful to have lots of beautiful portraits of my Mom in all her beautiful ages, portraits of us together, my grandparents... to me all these photographs are priceless. When the beautiful woman featured in this post, Ms. T., called me to inquire about a photo session, she specifically said that she just wants photos of her boys. I feel very passionately about photographing Moms too (maybe because I cherish portraits of my Mom so much), and I convinced Ms T that she has to have portraits of herself FOR her children, and that she has be to in portraits WITH them.

When Ms. T arrived to our Toronto photo studio she got full celebrity treatment (because let's be honest... when we become Mothers we do so little for ourselves), and then we had a great time taking beautiful portraits in her favourite outfits before her boys and her husband joined us at the studio for family portraits. The portraits we created will stay in their family for generations, they are legacy, and I feel very honoured that Ms. T chose me to capture them. Please enjoy my selection!

Toronto Portrait Photography | Elegant Maternity Photo Session by Elena Golijanin

Expecting a baby is a very special time in woman’s life. Why do we document maternity through photographs? I absolutely love celebrating pregnancies with Moms-to-be. It is a beautiful time in their lives, when their body is nurturing a tiny human life inside. Every Mom is a superhero and deserves to be celebrated!

Maternity session is a way to celebrate your body and this precious time. Even though sometimes pregnancy may seem endless, in reality it is a short, once is a lifetime moment that you cannot get back. That is why maternity portraits are so special.. not only for you, but for the little human who will be looking at these portraits years later, seeing how much they were already loved, while still in Mommy’s tummy..

Please enjoy our selection from Anastasia and Matt’s elegant maternity session in our Toronto photo studio. For this photo shoot we chose ivory lacy gown for the soft and whimsical look, and a gorgeous deep red gown for the fashion, magazine-style look. And of course we played with the beautiful pastel coloured tulle skirt, every girl’s favourite! The gowns are custom made by wonderful Sew Trendy Accessories. And since Anastasia and Matt already have two (fur) kids, we took the photoshoot outside to get a quick full family portrait!

Are you looking to create memories with a maternity session? We look forward to hearing from you, please contact us at the studio now!

Debra and Gerry Anniversary Portrait Photoshoot | Toronto Portrait Photo Studio by Elena Golijanin

I met beautiful Debra at the amazing gym Orange Theory Fitness, where we often work out together. Debra is a truly beautiful lady, inside and out. To me she represents true timeless elegance and class and I was so excited to photograph her! Before the shoot Debra mentioned that her wedding anniversary was coming up and she was thinking of bringing her husband Gerry along. My answer - OF COURSE! Best idea ever! When they both came to the studio on the day of the shoot, I saw their incredible chemistry and beautiful connection right away. I remember that when Debra's make up and hair was done and she changed into her first outfit and came out for Gerry to see her - he felt so emotional and was fighting back the tears.. something I have seen during my wedding photography days, when the bride and groom saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.. only this time it was their 30th anniversary.

This is what Debra had to say about her experience after the shoot:

"Elena, your enthusiasm, encouragement, incredible talent, professionalism, patience an skill gave me the opportunity to enthusiastically explore a different side of myself. You brought out the best in me. You saw something I did not see in myself. I loved the creativity, focus, fun, whimsy, natural light. In these photos I see the past and the future all at once. Thank you for this moment in time."

Debra and Gerry purchased a beautiful hand crafter leather folio to hold their 15 most cherished portraits. This may just be the best anniversary gift they gave to themselves, and their families.
