Toronto’s National Women’s Show 2015

After months of planning, we’re finally heading to Toronto’s National Women’s Show today and we couldn’t be more thrilled!! We’re so very excited to meet so many fabulous ladies this weekend! We hope to see you there! Be sure to visit us at booth # 1528.

Planning for the show offered the opportunity to look back at some of our favourite portrait sessions from the past year and we thought it would be fun to share a few favourite photographs on the blog too!

Cobourg Wedding: Thom + Trisha

We all know the story- boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl but this particular story has a little twist. It starts with a boy who has a flat in the UK. Boy gets a new Canadian roommate. New roommate asks boy if it’s okay if her Canadian gal pal crashes on the sofa for a while. Boy is annoyed but eventually says yes. Boy meets roommate’s gal pal. Boy is no longer annoyed. Boy takes roommate’s gal pal on a date. Boy falls in love with roommate’s gal pal. Boy marries roommate’s gal pal.

Thom’s and Trisha’s wedding day was full of anticipation and enthusiasm for two wonderful people to say “I do!” Friends and family, both present and in-spirit, celebrated these soul mates with overwhelming love and joy!

I can’t wait to see what the future holds for such an amazing couple!

Her in a white dress. Him in a dark suit.They swirled around the dance floor holding each other close and sharing soft whispers.

 

You know that couple that makes you smile when you see them together? Chelsea and Dave are that couple! They are just so darn happy when they’re with each other that you can’t help but fall in love with them instantly!

Surrounded by their loved ones, Dave & Chelsea said “I do” at The Lakeview. Their friends and family spent the day celebrating the love of two amazing people!

Chelsea and Dave, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have met two people who are so obviously destined for each other. I wish you all the best as you continue to light up each other’s lives!

Toronto Luxury Portrait Photographer

I read the following quote by Salma Hayek a few years ago and it changed everything:

“People often say that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’

and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty

is realizing that you are the beholder.”

These words hold so much power, so much potential for change. Beauty is about celebrating what makes you different. Each woman has unique facial features, a unique form, a unique personality, and being able to positively embrace the fact that you are different than every other female in the world is powerful and transformative.

I began to study the female form from the very beginning of my photography career. Through the combination of my eye, my posing directions and my camera, I realized I had something special to offer!  I could show women a version of themselves that they may not see when they look in the mirror. I realized that one well-taken photograph has the ability to change a woman’s self-perception, self-confidence and the way she leads her life (read about one such story here).

When I realized that I had the ability to gift women with a fresh perspective on their own beauty, I knew that I wanted to spend every day photographing women and that’s exactly what I am doing!

If you’re interested in creating a beautiful portrait of yourself or a loved one in Toronto, GTA, or beyond, feel free to drop me a line. I’d love to chat about how to celebrate your beauty, poise & femininity in a photograph!

Much love, Alisha

Orangeville Luxury Portrait Session: Nichole

Nichole has a certain “it” factor. She’s kind, she’s gentle, she’s outrageously funny, she’s passionate- she simply shines!

Nichole is a gal who has followed her heart and it has led her to greatness. Nichole is an exceptional teacher by profession. She’s that teacher who is patient even with the most stubborn children; she’s that teacher who puts her everything into teaching children in a way that is educational, relatable and fun; she’s that teacher who children are excited to see and sad to leave; she’s that teacher who genuinely loves her job!

I am so honoured to have been able to work with Nichole to create her gorgeous professional portraits!
