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 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!
