Styled Wedding Photo Shoot at The Treasury in Pontiac

The Treasury in Pontiac is is a stunning historical venue - it used to be a bank and still has a vault with safe deposit boxes tucked downstairs and an impressive clock right on the balcony made me think of Cinderella.

DIA Engagement photo Shoot - For love of art

DIA is amazing museum ( and even more amazing event venue) , and wondering through the halls fills me with joy. So to photogrph an engagement session with a couple who shares love for the art made me giddy.

But photo shoots in museums and libraries com with their own set of challenges. Limited light is one of them, and since there have been some bad apples, more and more curated places put restrictions on photography. If you end up photography in a museum, library or other public venue, be mindful of the policies as well as courteous to fellow visitors.

We took our trip to DIA as a chance to enjoy the art, as well as incorporate the couples love for art, and a place they visited when they started dating .

Some of the pieces of art made me want to get a brush and create my own artistic backgrounds for studio photo sessions.

Bold art Engagement Photo Shoot at DIA

The bold art with the couple showing off their love, made me feel like I am in the presence of layering of art. The emotions on top of art - that is emotion provoking in itself - created the dynamic multi-dimension new art.

Personal Branding Portrait

You can create a credible brand by staying true to who you are. - Hilary Sawchuk.

Strong and Beautiful

Strong and Beautiful

I love working on personal branding sessions because I get to capture someones story. A story they want to tell to the world. There is so much raw power in these stories.

So here is a beautiful story of Caroline, who also happens to also be my coach. Her story is one of personal growth through guidance, vulnerability and finding your strength from within.

While Caroline is a daily motivator for keeping up with the fitness goals to those she coaches, she also leads by example, and shares her own struggles and challenges. Through this vulnerability she has found an amazing way to connect with people.  So her portraits show more than her fitness brand. They tell her story - story of grace, of vulnerability, of strength and of living your passion.
