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!
