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 | Beautiful Family Portraits to Celebrate 60th Birthday by Elena Golijanin

When was the last time you had your family picture taken? I can't even express how passionate I feel about celebrating family, preserving moments, memories, and having beautiful printed portraits of family members, as well as family together. To me, these are your most valuable family possessions.

I met this gorgeous woman at the National Women's Show in Toronto. She was about to turn 60 then and after we chatted for a bit she decided that a makeover portrait photo session would be a fun and memorable way to celebrate this milestone. She also decided to bring her beautiful daughters, her very handsome husband and their super cute  dog Ollie for family portraits to our Toronto photo studio. And it was indeed a day to remember! All three beautiful ladies got glammed up by our talented make up artist, all while sipping mimosas and having a laugh!  We then started a photo session with portraits of Dianne (it was her birthday after all)! She brought some of her favourite outfits, and we added a few items from our studio wardrobe. After taking some beautiful portraits of Dianne, her daughters joined in for some individual portraits, as well as beautiful candid Mother-Daughter portraits, then Dianne's husband joined us later in a day for beautiful family portraits.

They chose a beautiful hand crafted leather folio box to keep some of their most cherished family portraits. Here is what Dianne had to say about the experience:

"Thanks Elena for your great work.

 I couldn’t be happier with the pics. Choosing to do family pics for my 60th was originally a spur of the moment decision when I saw your portfolio. I truly, truly do not like having any pics of me done or shown! Ever! You did such a wonderful job (no surgery needed-haha!) and made me look pretty (darn) good for a gracious and full figured 60+’er.
Without having much time to get to know all of us you were able to capture our personalities and family dynamics so well and so quickly. It really shows wonderfully in the pictures. Even my stern and proper husband managed to crack a slight smile throughout the process. It was a delightful day and experience. Your talented makeup artist and assistant made it that much easier for us all too.

I would heartily recommend you and your services to anyone. Thanks for the memory and ....Happy Birthday present to me!!!

Dianne and family... "

And to me having a happy client  is the highest reward and compliment!
Please enjoy our selection of their beautiful family 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!
