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."

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!
