One of the best parts of being a Toronto portrait photographer is to get to work with amazing clients like Miss B.
When Miss B. came to be asking for portraits she envisioned a wide variety of shots and had 1 specific goal in mind: to find that part of her that she felt was slipping away. She wanted to look more than ‘pretty’ – she wanted to be ultra glamorous!
No matter where you are in your life, it’s so easy to fall into that “working too much” rut. We spend 40 (or more) hours a week working and then on top of that we’re taking care of our families, our homes, preparing meals and trying to balance out some resemblance of a social life. It’s easy to see how we (for the most part) put everyone ahead of ourselves and Miss B. found herself feeling exactly like that.
Our set was on location – nothing overly elaborate. Beautifully painted walls, great window light and a few chairs and stools. Glamour photography isn’t about props, it’s about the woman in the photo. Even if your life is hectic, busy and utterly intense – for that hour that you’re infront of the camera you can relax, let loose, and let your story shine. As a Toronto portrait photographer, it’s my job to not only photograph the external beauty, but to find the internal beauty and showcase that front and center.
“Sometimes people are beautiful.
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”
― Markus Zusak
“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
― Sam Levenson
