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!

The BEST and most thoughtful 16th Birthday Gift EVER | Toronto Photography Studio | LivePixels Photography by Elena Golijanin

Beautiful Elle was turning 16 in June. Her amazing Mom was planning 16 different things for them to do together to celebrate this milestone birthday.. One of the things was a surprise photoshoot for Elle and her Mom at our Toronto photography studio. They arrived early in the morning and Elle had no idea! She was so surprised and so excited! My wonderful hair and makeup team made both Elle and Jen, her Mom, look and feel gorgeous! We created so many different looks, from classic elegant portraits, to glamour and beauty portraits, to more fashion forward, edgy looks. The beautiful black and white ostrich wings are a creation of a talented Toronto designer Maret's Designs, and are only available for photoshoots at our photo studio. Thank you Jennifer and Elle for trusting me with your portraits, this means so much!

This is what Jennifer had to say about their photoshoot experience:

I surprised my daughter with a photo shoot for her 16th birthday & it was the most amazing day for us both!! Elena over exceeded my expectations! Her ability to capture the most perfect moments is unbelievable - she is an exceptional photographer with such a creative eye. We were so welcomed & comfortable during our full day shoot and were catered to - hair, makeup, wardrobe, croissants, champagne, coffee - she not only worked with my visions but used her own as well - and we loved them all!! My daughter loved every second of this day & it’ll be one she never forgets! We definitely will be going back!! Thank you so much Elena!! I would rate your talent above a 5 star if I could!!

Thank you Jennifer for your wonderful word! I would love to have your whole family back one day for a generations portrait photoshoot!

Enjoy a little peek to behind the scenes at what's happening at the studio during the shoot, and our selection of Elle and Jennifer's stunning portraits!

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 Photo Studio | Portraits of a Ballet Dancer by Elena Golijanin

We all have passions that drive us in life.. It can be  fitness, sports, cooking, music.. For Natalia it's always been dance. She graduated from Vaganova Ballet Academy in St Petersburg, Russia, performed with The National Ballet of Canada, and currently runs a private ballet school in Toronto. Natalia came to our Toronto photo studio to create beautiful portraits that capture her passion. We created several different looks, feminine, soft and whimsical to strong and powerful, to celebrate Natalia and her passion for ballet.

Please enjoy our selection of beautiful dance inspired images. What's your passion? I would love to photograph it!

Toronto Professional Photography Studio | Professional Headshots and Business Portraits by Elena Golijanin

Let's face it, social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc play a huge role in promoting your business, and great headshots are often your most important and valuable marketing material.  These platforms are today's first impression, before you even get to meet your clients face to face. This Toronto real estate agent came in for a photo shoot in our studio to get her updated professional head shots. She was very sceptical at first, saying that she is not photogenic and does not photograph well (I hear that a lot), but that she doesn't want to have a photo representing her that's too outdated, so she had to get it done. I told her to just trust me and have fun with it. On the day of her photoshoot Kim arrived at the studio and we spent about an hour or so chatting while she was getting her makeup done by my wonderful makeup artist Melissa. She did an amazing job, and that alone gave Kim a boost of confidence. After we finished with professional head shots to represent Kim in her Toronto real estate business, we photographed some of more glamorous, feminine looks. Kim loved her headshots and the whole portrait experience in our Toronto photo studio!

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.
