Fresh Hamilton Realtor Headshot Photography… We are pleased to introduce you to a professional and forward thinking real estate representative on the Hamilton scene, Jess Fabrizio! The passionate RE/MAX realtor loves her city and has launched her brand with the skilled graphic design services of GA Creative. In her own words, Jess is a “Proud Hamiltonian Realtor helping people fall in love with this ambitious city!” It is always exciting for us to promote and support our entrepreneurial friends and clients, so when Jess inquired about headshots for her small business, we were thrilled! Preferring to steer away from the traditional and typical style of real estate headshot photography, while representing her professionalism, personality and interests, she requested a mix of modern portraits for easy face recognition along with images containing contextual street-scape surroundings of James Street North to use for her website and various social media platforms. Some of Jess’s portraits were composed to include negative space for her graphic designer to use in her promotional material. It was very fitting that we used our studio as a setting for a large part of the session, as it is a reclaimed urban space – something that Hamilton is seeing a lot of these days and something that Jess is ecstatic to be a part of! Once a functioning factory and cotton mill, 270 Sherman is now the largest creative arts facility in Hamilton! The detailed old wooden doors with peeling paint and brick walls as backdrops reflect the rich character and heritage of many downtown properties that either have, or will be, given new purpose and life. Areas that where only recently viewed as undesirable are quickly attracting investors who have caught wind of Hamilton’s affordability, shifting culture and budding potential. Like the renewal seen on Ottawa Street and James Street North, Jess is looking forward to seeing the great things in store for the rest of her city and its surrounding area!
Diane Morris Profile and Headshot Photography… In light of Hamilton based Bride’s Butler Wedding Coordination‘s re-branding launch, founder and previous owner Diane Morris reached out to us regarding new portraits and headshots for her small business! We were more than happy to oblige. Diane’s portrait session included a blend of headshots along with photographs of her in a shabby chic setting (our studio!) to coincide with her new branding. A selection of the images were composed to include negative space for her graphic designer to use for writing. Diane wanted her branding and portraits to show her true colours – that she is both professional and fun, with a great sense of humour, style and attention to detail (not to mention her love for all things Disney – see her tattoo?). She has used the images throughout her website, social media, as well as on her printed material. Thanks so much, Diane! We love the new site!
Summer Gage Park Hamilton Family Photography Mini Session | Ben + Jenny = Hannah | One Year Old Photo shoot
Summer Gage Park Hamilton Family Photography… Ben, Jenny and Hannah’s cute lifestyle family portrait session took place on a beautiful summer day near the time of Hannah’s first birthday! We were thrilled to be able to document some of Hannah’s first steps as Ben and Jenny helped her along the paths of Gage Park. However, if you pay attention as you browse their images, you may notice that on this particular day Hannah did not enjoy the feeling of the grass beneath her feet and can be seen literally hovering above the ground as her parents held her hands! It has been a pleasure getting to know the family of three who are relatively new to the Hamilton area. What we love most about photographing families is taking a variety of portraits within one session – essentially rolling several types of portraits, such as individual portraits, couple’s portraits, group portraits, small details and spontaneous moments, all into one succinct session. Many parents find it tough to find alone time after having kids, so getting portraits of just the two of them alone together is a must-have! As is individual photos of “the little one” in the family. Especially in the early years, kids grow and change so much in a short amount of time; it is so important to capture beautiful images at each milestone. Also featured in their session at Gage Park, coined “the jewel of Hamilton’s east end”, is the park’s recently restored water fountain. The historic monument was built in 1927 and it was a pleasant surprise to see it back up and running again for the summer! Thank you so much, Ben and Jenny (and Hannah!), for the opportunity to photograph you just doing what you do together in this gorgeous neighbourhood meeting place. Enjoy!
