The CIBC Wealth Management Team of Advisors in Kanata - led by Les Kom and Jeff van der Maden -- knew they wanted their updated headshots to be friendlier and more welcoming than they had been in the past, but still in line with the level of knowledge and professionalism on which they have built their reputation. We met, discussed a plan, settled on a location and shoot schedule that would not be too disruptive to busy work schedules and executed a successful photoshoot that yielded the results they were looking for. Managing your money has never looked better!
Sometimes a career can be a little bit of suit jacket, polish and briefcase mixed with a little bit of well-loved jeans, messy bun and paint brush. Sonya needed images that would blend all these facets -- and typical studio headshots just wouldn't suffice. A session that would incorporate headshots, branding images and content creation was perfect for Sonya, allowing her the flexibility to continue to move forward in her career world.

Where were you on Saturday? If you didn't make your way to 1281 Wellington Street West, you missed one of the best birthday parties in Ottawa. Revelle Bridal turned One - and celebrated in style with The White Party.
Celebrants - brides and wedding industry peeps alike - were greeted upon arrival with a toast and bubbly, handsomely served by Sip Beverage Bike. Pollen Nation provided the stunning floral installations and sweet accents to charm the eyes and senses every way one turned. Brides were able to browse Revelle's curated collection of gowns, accessories and jewellery, asking questions, receiving guidance and setting up personal consultations for the future. Stor by Margot was on site, showing off her stunning collection of exquisite rings for both him and her. And swag! Gift cards, complimentary items and giveaways were on every table and in every swag bag (including a $1000 Grand Prize!). Suzy Q Doughnuts, Batter Up Bakery, Hey Sugar Candy Co, Valentina's Sweets, Supply and Demand Oyster Bar made everyone smile because who doesn't like Champagne with their sweets or oysters?
Congratulations to the Revelle Bridal team for turning One! You definitely know how to celebrate in style. Wishing you many many more parties in honour of your future successes!
Busy with the demands of a long-held successful business and career, it had been years since Janet and Ray updated their website and headshots. They wanted their clients to be able to identify their warm, welcoming personalities and work environment but still recognize them as seasoned professionals and experts in their field. We consulted, put together a vision, brought together a team to help it unfold (thank-you Maggie Patterson of Scoop Industries, Megan Roberts of 2BU Artistry and Julia Thibert of Richardson Hair Design) and the results truly speak to what Janet Eaton and Ray Wheeler at Remax Hometown Realty represent. Keep your eye out for the release of their brand new website!

He has a team of skilled advisors and assistants who are more than just "bankers" and "tellers" - they are banking professionals with a beating heart, personality and the authority needed to take care of your finances and financial health. It was key that his images communicate just that.

So you think you need a new headshot? You may want to consider a Branding Session instead: Shelli Warren, A SheConnex Media Refresh
SheConnex is fast becoming a household name around these parts. What was once an online women's group is now a fortress of coaching events, workshops, retreats and facilitation and speaking opportunities that foster strength, confidence, growth and leadership for adults and youth alike. At its helm is Shelli Warren -- the female powerhouse of SheConnex who brings over 25 years of leadership and global experience to the table. Her list of credentials and accomplishments is long and noteworthy, but she remains ever down-to-earth, welcoming and friendly -- a small-town girl at heart with big city determination and successes.
Beyond the typical updated headshot, Shelli was looking to add a personal touch to the SheConnex website and wanted business portraits and media images -- branding -- that would speak to her style, personality and capabilities in coaching and leadership -- portraits and images that would give the viewer a sense of who Shelli is in an instant -- so key in today's online experience where typical viewers know within 3 - 5 seconds (or 3 - 5 clicks) whether they want to pursue doing business with you.
A business "refresh" or "branding" is definitely a process, one that has to unfold with focused intent -- it's more than just an updated headshot. Preshoot, Shelli and I met to discuss her vision so there was a solid understanding of what the end results needed to be. A team of curated professionals was brought on board to help execute the vision and conscious planning ensued (right down to paperclips!). The results are simultaneously strong and feminine, professional and whimsical, worldly and elegant, creative and grounded -- all the facets that make up Shelli and the foundation she has in place for SheConnex.
You can see Shelli's images in action on her re-freshed website here: SHECONNEX WEBSITE
And, true to Shelli and her leadership, Shelli wrote and published a complimentary step-by-step guide of how to design your own Media Refresh Day from her rebranding experience with me to share with YOU. You can download Shelli's complimentary Media Refresh Day guide here: GUIDE
Much thanks and appreciation to you, Shelli, for the trust you displayed in me and in my colleagues to get you what you needed. ~ Elenora

Even though Maggie Patterson of Maggie Patterson Communications initially reached out to me for "headshots", I knew immediately upon speaking with her that she was looking for something definitely more specialized than the standard (read "cookie-cutter") headshot: she was looking for a set of adaptable, customized business portraits that she could use on her websites, guides and social media platforms that would speak clearly to her personality, style, business and moxie. As an experienced copyright and communications strategist with over 15 years experience in the field, Maggie knows all-too-well the value of standing out, getting noticed and being trusted -- and needed her business portraits to be in line with that. We chatted over the phone, met in person, fleshed out a plan and invited other professionals on board to help execute exactly what Maggie envisioned. Her results are at once charismatic, warm, inviting, chock full of confidence and strength and professional -- just like Maggie. Thank-you, Maggie, for your trust throughout the process as we created images to represent your brand and moxie! ~ Elenora
