How lovely to work again with Raj Girn!

Raj is a multi-award winning media and events entrepreneur, brand strategist, marketing consultant, confidence coach and entertainment personality. This photoshoot was all about her new branding and new website. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since Raj’s last photoshoot with us - time truly flies!

I always ask people to bring at least one white clothing item to their photoshoot. A white outfit is crisp and fresh, it will never go out of style and it’s a perfect canvas to show off your personality.

This time around, I finally got to photograph Raj in white!

When you love what you do, you want to do it all day, every day.

I could honestly photograph Raj for hours on end. The work our whole team did was so passion-driven. From incredible make-up by Shirley Wu to the help of Raj’s friend, designer Allia Qureshi.

Writer Kate Freiman

PureStudiosAgnesKieszKateFreiman-27.jpg

Meet award-winning, national best-selling writer Kate Freiman. Kate is an author behind many romance novels and Toronto is her home. In her private life, as she says, Kate tends her garden, fixes things that break and finds things that get lost, reads voraciously, and acts as personal assistant to two cats, a dog and a horse. ⁣
⁣Kate’s elegance and poise truly impressed and inspired me. I’m so grateful she trusted me to capture her. Our Stylist for the photoshoot was Rinat Samuel.

5 years of solopreneurship

PureStudiosAgnesKieszMay12-4blog.jpg

Hello loves! For those of you who are new to our blog and website, my name is Agnes and I’m a Photographer. My specialty is portraiture and personal branding photography for women. My superpower is making everyone comfortable in front of my lens and making them look their best.

I love sharing about my business/solopreneur journey and featuring other lovely fempreneurs on my blog. That’s because I’m very passionate about women empowerment. Things are changing in the world and I truly believe that We Rise Together.

With the 5th anniversary of my solopreneurship coming, there’s a lot of reflecting and strategizing for the future. I won’t lie to you - even though I didn’t struggle long to create a successful business, it wasn’t easy and it definitely took much more than just positive thinking. I gave it all I had!

Looking back, I can honestly say that investing in myself was the best choice I ever made. We all have talents but we also all have areas needing work and improvement. You need to spend time or money (or both) working on those areas or you will stay stuck. In my third year of entrepreneurship I finally invested into learning about marketing and business from a great mentor who also specialized in my niche. The true growth only started after that and oh my - was is fast! Things literally changed over a few months and grew from there.

It’s not easy, but I know one thing: everything is possible with a positive mindset, true passion for your work and the willingness to learn and work!

Wishing you a great week ahead.

xoxo,

Agnes

Spring with Pink Avocado Nutrition

PureStudiosAgnesKieszPANMar-25.jpg

We had so much fun shooting with Cathy from Pink Avocado Nutrition for her new, beautiful website. Cathy is a Nutritionist & Accountability Coach (that’s a combo to make things happen right there!), a Super Momma and such a ray of sunshine.

I always admire women who went through serious struggles and didn’t let those struggles break their spirit and get them stuck in victim mentality. If you didn’t know Cathy’s back story, you’d never think this energetic, creative, nurturing lady went through so much in her life. I’m always so grateful for the opportunity to work and learn from women like Cathy. It inspires me and helps me with my own struggles. We all go through hardships from time to time and growth isn’t easy!

I started my 40s with struggles. I had a child that was in and out of hospitals, a terminally ill father and to top it off a failing marriage! But these struggles lead me to dig deep and find what I had forgotten - belief in myself. I found a coach and realized I needed accountability. I stopped trying to lose weight, I stopped seeking approval from others & I gained the courage to believe in myself again. I focused on the process and let the results speak for themselves

Interior Designer Christine Da Costa

PureStudiosAgnesKieszChristineDaCosta-36.jpg

Meet lovely Christine of Decor by Christine - she’s an experienced Interior Designer and self-proclaimed glamamama! Christine is one of the most energetic clients I’ve ever had and her happiness really translates through the photos.

In addition to offering interior design services, Christine also has an online store on her website with accessories hand picked by her! I fell in love with mugs, blankets and prayer beads she brought to the photoshoot and I couldn’t resist to purchase them for myself.

Christine’s motto is “decorate as you dress”. I love that because her style is nothing short of amazing. She approaches a room like a woman’s outfit: buy great, timeless pieces that have longevity and accessorize with less expensive items! “I’ve always loved how Fashion intersects with Interior Design and frankly I cannot get enough of both!”

A couple of weeks ago I worked with the fabulous photographer Agnes from Pure Studios to take some professional photos of me & I just got back from her studio after the Reveal. I couldn’t be more ecstatic over the images she was able to capture of me. The interior design industry is all visual and that includes pictures of yourself. I am my brand so damnit I better look good, right? With any service company you are basically representing yourself and what your company stands for!
