Educational Strategist Jane Kristoffy

PureStudiosAgnesKieszJaneKristoffy-15.jpg

Feeling grateful to have met and worked with wonderful Jane Kristoffy. Jane is an Educational Strategist helping students achieve personal success. She is an elegant, intelligent and classy woman, simply lovely to be around and I’m very happy our paths have crossed.

Jane attended our “Instagram For Your Business” Seminar few months ago and she did her branding process the right way! It started with determining her brand colors. Strong red, navy and light blue were the final choices.

As most women, Jane was also nervous to have her photos professionally done. Please remember this is completely normal! It’s MY job as the Photographer to walk you through the entire process and deliver beautiful and natural photos of you.

Recently I went through Agnes’ entire process: consultation, photo shoot and reveal. Her professionalism and commitment to impeccable work was evident in all sessions, as well as during her email communications and delivery of photos.

I’m thrilled with my photos, and I enjoyed the experience of the photo shoot more than I expected! Hair and make-up, arranged by Agnes for the day of the shoot, as well as a relaxed and supportive atmosphere in her studio, made the photo shoot special.It was an “event” for me! Agnes ensured I was comfortable having my photos taken, offered helpful suggestions, and never rushed the process.

I am new to marketing my business, as well as the use of social media platforms for sharing my brand. During each of the three sessions, Agnes patiently explained strategies for me to use in order to get my brand/services in front of my ideal clients. I appreciated this extra time and expertise.

I can’t imagine a better experience, or better professional to get this job done. On top of this, Agnes is warm, creative, smart person.I look forward to working with her again!

Financial Planner & Insurance Broker Anna Sowinski

I met Anna very early in my portrait photography career, so it was lovely so see her again after few years. Anna is a Financial Planner & Insurance Broker and she is building a beautiful website that showcases her expertise. She is all about great, personalized service, so she didn’t want stock imagery on her website.

We established that Anna’s main brand color is blue. Anna’s top quality is being trustworthy and knowledgeable, so blue was a great choice! This photoshoot was also a great excuse for Anna to get 3 generations of her family together for beautiful family photos that will be cherished forever.

Hi Agnes,
This was a very important project for me and I wouldn’t think of anyone else I wanted to work with but you. You are an amazing photographer and a beautiful person :-)
I love my family and I am very blessed to have them in my life. It’s because of them I am who I am and where I am. I wanted to take those pictures for a long time and I am so very happy I finally did. The best money ever spent. I will enjoy them every single day. It was a very beautiful experience (as last time). You made us all feel amazing. I keep looking at the pictures and cry every time lol.
Thank you again :-)

Winter in Toronto is no joke, so this colourful photoshoot with Stylist & Youtuber Christie Ressel was a true treat. We were talking with Christie about how we start feeling a bit miserable in late January and we cannot wait for spring.

As usual for Christie’s monthly photoshoot, I made sure to choose locations where colors go with her brand. This way her presentation stays consistent and she can use her photos for many different platfroms, like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, her website and blog.

Laura De Sanctis

Our last photoshoot with Laura De Sanctis, Nutritionist at Go With Your Gut, was super cozy, sweet & sexy!

Laura has just launched her “Shift Happens” affirmation cards. They are a wonderful tool to help shift our mindset, to heal and establish self love. They are so much more than pretty photos and cards.

PureStudiosAgnesKieszLauraDeSanctisFeb-14.jpg
This year has been a year of lessons... a lot on letting go and trusting the universe. Letting go of people, things and circumstances and creating space for the better. I created Shift Happens affirmation cards and journals to help people holistically heal and make a shift in their lives. Many times we cling to certainty, we cling to thoughts, feelings or people in response to fear. The body always responds to how we think and feel.

When you create space, shift your thinking, and let go of negative thoughts, your body will respond. It all starts in the gut. I challenge you to make the shift.
— Laura De Sanctis
The moment you realize your worth, you shift. You attract new energy and new people who respect your worth. It all starts with you.
— Laura De Sanctis

I couldn’t agree with Laura more!

We were super lucky that it started snowing during one of our photoshoots! Snow makes winter photos absolutely dreamy.

I really like that Christie is using colors boldly in her wardrobe. It’s very uplifting, especially during long Canadian winter.
