I loved working with Payal on her Personal Branding Photoshoot so much it’s really hard to find the right words to describe it but “magic” could certainly be one of them!

Payal is an Interior Designer and a true visionaire. The set up for her photoshoot actually started two days prior, because we wanted to feature quite a few statement pieces from her store, like the iconic peacock chair or Balinese parasol and of course crystals.

We loved decorating multiple photo sets with crystals, which made me realize they truly go with all types of interior design. They looked amazing in a Scandinavian bedroom, eclectic living room and bohemian garden.

We simply had to take advantage of a beautiful summer day and also take photos outside!

Beach Photoshoot with Laura De Sanctis

Aah, beach photoshoots! I’m a beach bum at heart and I love being on the beach, both for pleasure and work. There’s something so freeing about walking bare foot, putting your feet in the sand and having sun and wind caress your skin.

So I was very excited when Laura from Go With Your Gut decided she wanted her next photoshoot to take place at the beach. We’re quite lucky in Toronto where we have several lovely beaches so we didn’t have to travel far. Bluffers Park in addition to a big beach has wild, tropical looking greenery, which was also a beautiful background for photos and perfect for Laura’s brand.

You can tell she belongs at the beach!

Stunning views & tropical greenery

were perfect for Laura’s brand

What a treat it was to finally work with Toronto Watercolour Artist & Kimono Designer Marina Billinghurst!

Marina’s work is becoming super popular not only in Toronto but also across the world. We had the pleasure of photographing the artist herself in her stunning Junction studio before heading out to Pure Studios for more photos.

Marina’s dreamy watercolour patterns adorn not only wall art but also accessories and of course her stunning kimonos. It was time to photograph it all!

Marina’s photos are just like her personality: effortless, free-spirited, creative, dreamy!

Marina is super warm and you simply want to be around her, but this lovely spirit also possesses an incredible strength. When she suffered a horrible car accident and learned about her mom being diagnosed with cancer shortly after, she decided there was nowhere to go but up.

Life is short and we just don’t know when or why it’s our time.

But we do know when we have to do something.

And we do it.

Meet Nicole of Nicole Blair Events, an Event Specialist. Nicole specializes in planning and curating weddings and other events in Toronto and beyond. It was a pleasure to work with this girlboss on her Website/Branding Photoshoot because we’re both lovers of minimalist style! Black and white with touches of mauve and magenta was the timeless palette for Nicole’s photoshoot.

The most important word when it comes to Branding Photoshoots is “consistency”. In the consultation before the photoshoot, we talk in detail about colours, style and mood of the photos so they can be consistent for a website and social media platforms.

As with every Website/Branding Photoshoot, the goal was to show Nicole's professional persona and style. We made sure to capture headshots and lifestyle photography for all marketing needs! When choosing props, we kept in mind Nicole’s brand colours in order to create a very consistent look.
