Portrait Photography| Milton

Earlier this year I was asked by Jameel (senior stylist and owner of Jameel De Stefano Salon & Spa in Milton) if I would be interested in photographing their hair models, prior to their annual White Party and fashion show, which I gladly accepted! It was a fantastic (and very busy) day, with a team of 5 stylists and makeup artists preparing 16 awesome hair models for the event!

Here are some of the portraits, categorized by stylist:

Hair-Jameel de Stefano; Makeup-Luke Skrzek

Fall Family Sessions| Milton Oakville Burlington Mississauga

It’s hard to believe September is already here…evenings are starting to get cooler, it’s back to school in just a few short days, and before you know it the leaves are going to start changing!

I am going to be offering a reduced family rate for Fall sessions (continued from late summer…). Packages will be $200 for a 30 minute session, and will include your favourite 10 digital files as well as three beautiful 8×10 prints. Possible locations will include Kelso Conservation Park, Crawford Lake, Lowville Park as well as Mill Pond in Milton. Sessions will be available both evenings and weekends. (This package can also be used for engagement photography, pets or personal portraiture.)

Here are some samples of my Fall Photography. For more information or to book a session, please contact me at girouxantonia@gmail.com.

Actor Headshots| Milton Burlington Oakville Mississauga Toronto

There are some people who are just naturals in front of the camera, and this young actor was certainly that! From the very first shot, he was relaxed and responded very well to my prompts! The whole session took about 30 minutes, and in that time we went through 4 different shirt changes, several changes of location/background, as well as many different poses. This is important, especially for a model/actor, since the agencies are going to want to see a variety of photos. Here are a few of the final results! (Did I mention how much I enjoyed working with him?!)

Actor Headshots| Milton Oakville Mississauga Burlington Toronto

This very talented young lady has been an actress and model with Carolyn’s Model & Talent Agency (Carolyn’s Kids) since the age of 2, and has been in lots of different movies, TV shows, shorts, including her most recent-Odd Squad! She’s also no stranger to getting her headshots updated, and I have been pleased to do this for her for the past few years! (Again, a lot of people ask whether it’s better to do indoor or outdoor shots. A lot will depend on the agency you are with, however in my experience both have been accepted. Last year we did outdoor shots…this year we did indoor due to the weather!)

Model and Actor Headshots | Milton Oakville Mississauga Toronto

Time to catch up on some of my posts! (If you have been following my website and wish to see what I have been up to, make sure you check out my Instagram page, which I update quite frequently!)

Lately I have been getting more and more requests for model and actor headshots in the GTA. I have worked with clients who have been in the field for quite some time, as well as those who are looking at getting started and who need some photos to develop their portfolio. When working with models and actors, I always recommend bringing several changes of clothing. This will enable us to get a variety of different looks, which is important for talent agencies. We also do a variety of styles, from studio shots (with strobe lights) as well as natural light, and sessions can take place either indoors or outdoors.

And now…introducing…

Reagan! Totally reminds me of Kirsten Dunst! She came to me several months ago for her portfolio photo shoot, prior to applying to a model and talent agency in Toronto. I was so happy to hear that she is now signed with Sherrida,! Check out her profile page here! I am certain she is going to have a lot of cool opportunities ahead of her!

Here are some pics from our session together. Thanks so much to my makeup artist, Julia Szabo, for giving Reagan a beautiful look for our shoot!

Outdoor headshots-Milton Oakville Mississauga Burlington

After a long winter, the beautiful weather has finally arrived and with that comes outdoor headshot sessions in Halton Region! I recently had the opportunity to work with this wonderful couple, Ghada and Sean Davidson of Team Davidson (Remax). They wanted to have updated headshots (individual and team shots) for their social media, their website as well as their advertising needs. They were absolutely lovely to work with and I do highly recommend their services if you are looking for a home in Halton Region. Check out their website here!

Mikkelson Wedding | Milton Oakville Mississauga Burlington Toronto

It has been almost six months since this incredible wedding took place at the beautiful Holcim Waterfront Estate in Mississauga, Ontario. I was so honoured to have been asked to photograph Kate and Brendan’s wedding day, and really I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to work with. Everything was perfect…gorgeous weather, breathtaking location, beautiful dresses for the ladies and custom made suits for the men, delicious food and just the most wonderful groomsmen, bridesmaids, family members and guests who kept us entertained and feeling welcomed during the entire day!

Here are a few of my photos from their day, and if you haven’t done so yet, be sure to check out their fall engagement shoot as well!

Professional Headshots| Milton Oakville Burlington Toronto

Periodically, I like to feature some of my headshot sessions on my blog, as I think it’s important to see the results you can get when you spend 30-60 minutes with a photographer who is looking out for just one person at a time…YOU!

This (gorgeous) woman, Dr. Andrea Tricco, booked a headshot session with me this summer because she required several different shots of herself…for LinkedIn, for St. Michael’s Hospital where she works as a scientist, and for U of T where she is an associate prof. Not only that…but her work is also frequently published (often along with a headshot) in places such as the Canadian Medical Association Journal, CBC News, and the Toronto Star.  So…as you can understand she wanted to have some nice head shots with a little variety!

If you are interested in receiving more information on booking a personal headshot session, please visit my pricing page or contact me at girouxantonia@gmail.com.  Group rates can also be arranged.
