One of the best parts about doing Glamour Photography is the clients that I meet. Elena Parashko is one of those beautiful souls. An artist, writer, teacher, mother, wife, and all-round-amazing-woman! Elena is calm, centered, focused and driven. Her nature-inspired paintings have been exhibited in galleries around the world. Elena visited our studio late last year wanting head shots for a book she was about to have published. After being a contributing author for various Art and Home Decorator magazines, writing a book was her next step. Previously when Elena needed a headshot for media use, she would ask her husband to take a snapshot of her. Elena is the first to admit that these shots were not great! With the release of her book, she thought it was about time to have a Professional Glamour Portrait.
One of the big differences between getting a headshot v.s a HeavenlyImage Glamour Portrait, is Styling. If you are going to pay someone to take a professional photo, you really want to look and feel your absolute best. Having a Glamour Makeover ensures you will look beautiful. And having your photographer style your shoot ensures stylish and contemporary photographs. Glamour Photography is professional portraiture taken to the next level. Not only does your portrait look professional, but contemporary and stylish as well.
Elena brought a variety of outfits for her Glamour Shoot, which enabled us to create a variety of different looks. This was important as Elena wanted photos she could use for each area of her business (artist, writer, teacher). In a recent article for Professional Artist Magazine she wrote: “These new headshots by HeavenlyImage Photography enhanced my professional image so much that I wondered why I didn’t do it sooner.”
Elena wrote Survival Guide for Artists to help fellow artists wanting to pursue a career in the arts. Elena knows the challenges involved in following your dream to have a successful career. “I would like my book to encourage and empower all creative people to follow their passion and live a joyful life” says Elena.
