Shooting on location or in studio?


Do you shoot inside in a studio or do you shoot on location? Do you have a retail studio or a home studio?

We do both. We are storytellers, so each session is unique and built for that particular person.

We have a fully-equipped home studio where we shoot all our glamour and boudoir sessions.

For the maternity, loved ones and engagement sessions, we give the option to shoot outdoors.  There are so many beautiful parks and small lakes around to take advantage of, the city of Brampton and Toronto have tons of amazing non-paid outdoor locations where to take photos.

We shoot mainly in studio when it’s cold outside. Unless the theme chosen for the session is snowy!


So, why a home studio?

Privacy has always been an important part of how we do photography, and it is always a concern to many of our boudoir/fine art clients.

At the beginning Cristina was renting a retail location, however more and more clients were telling her it wasn’t as personal.  Yes, it was a big white room, high ceilings and the dream of most photographers… however it didn’t have that special-intimate-cozy feeling that she wanted for her clients.

Because she loves making her clients happy, and they are her #1 priority, she made the change. Since she took the studio to her house, all the clients were feeling more comfortable and that was reflected on their photos. They all looked stunning!

We work with many different clients; attorneys, teachers, soldier’s wives, etc. and we respect everyone’s privacy.   We also have women who are celebrating a milestone.  Whether it was weight loss, a promotion at work, or even just graduating college with three kids in tow, life is one big celebration.  We also have clients who are cancer survivors, women getting over depression or a divorce, so we needed the studio to feel special, an intimate place where they can feel stress-free and judgment-free.

Having said that, we also have a professional relationship with two commercial studios, one located in Brampton and another one in Toronto, if you rather have your photoshoot at these locations, just let us know, and we set everything up.
