Teresa lives in the Toronto area and has a very successful holistic wellness practise. She came to me and wanted some new portrait headshots that she could use for her presentations and the new business cards she was having made up.
Teresa, with her background as a licensed holistic practitioner, add some real estate and hospitality industry experience to the mix, has built up a very successful business of helping people attain a more vibrant & healthy lifestyle.
Teresa is a fun loving lady who makes lemonade out of lemons and posing for portraits was not really her thing. She wanted something new, something that would reflect the transition she was going through as her business was taking on new heights of success.
So I suggested to Teresa she bring some simple yet pleasant coloured clothing outfits, some suitable items of jewellery and keep the makeup simple. I wanted to make sure that we captured the essence of who Teresa is and reflect some of her easy going nature that people connect with. So we set out to have some fun and shake a little booty…
Here are some of the results of Teresa’s studio portrait session…
Her favourite shots....and the last ones we took
As with many people, standing in front of a camera is something they find hard to do and it does take some time to get comfortable having this lens peering down at you. So with Teresa, as I do with all my clients, we started shooting and just having some fun. I went through some posing pointers to show her how I would make her look the best.
It wasn’t long before Teresa got into the groove and started doing some of her stuff with what I was sharing with her. Add a little rock music….and we’re off to the races for a prize winning shot!
