Come as you are!

Come as you are!
I hear everyone talk about how they can’t wait for their hair appointment, or to have their nails done or that they need fake eyelashes. For 2 months, we have been living in a bubble, focusing on flattening the curve and not caring about the way we look. It was a nice break from always feeling like we need to have our shit together, or that we need to wear pants or a bra (right?!).
But are we totally ready to go back to “normal”?
Do you really hate your grey hair?
When is the last time you had your natural nails for so long?
Do you really need to have your roots done?
How do you feel about not having to wear makeup or heels every day?
I invite you to sit in this and ask yourself: do I really need all of this? Can I appreciate the person I see in the mirror every day?
Of course, I am not judging anyone who wears makeup every day and wants to have their hair done asap.
But I wonder: can we take a moment to appreciate who we are, right now, in the most beautiful way. With grey hair, and dark roots, and short nails, and wild eyebrows… just you being YOU!
Maybe you felt like you have been falling apart during this pandemic (physically and mentally) but it’s okay. You might be falling apart but you are now going to put the pieces back together. And you are only keeping the pieces you want to keep! We don’t have to go back to “normal”, or whatever before was. We can go back to OURSELVES. And ourselves might look different. No mask, no hiding, no fear. Just the real, raw and relatable YOU.
So, if you feel called to have your photo taken by me, and if you feel like standing in your most natural beauty and truth, I invite you to “come as you are”.
Let me show you how beautiful you already are, the person who has gone through so much, who has endured the isolation and came out of it with so much more strength.
Let’s capture YOU now so you can always come back to these images in the future and see how badass you are!
Send me an email to info@emilieiggiotti.com to book your spot!
Love,
Em
Note: I have limited spots open for these sessions. It will happen on specific days in downtown Edmonton, with physical distancing.

A glimpse of 2019

A glimpse of 2019

Blogging about our review of the year is not popular anymore. Now, we stick to Instagram and the top 9 most liked images on the app.

But I wanted to show you what my year looked like, from my point of view. The images that stayed with me, even after the session was done and delivered.

And I am looking forward to seeing you in front of my camera in 2020! Let’s talk!

Simple Portraits

Simple Portraits

Do you need new headshots?

Or as I call them, “professional portraits”?

I just got this amazing backdrop and I would love to get some people in front of my camera.

First, I thought of doing a “marathon” day of shoots where I would have maybe 10 people coming in one day for a 30 min session.

However, I realized that I was doing these marathon shoots because everyone else was doing it. But to be honest, I hate being stressed and these days would be extremely stressful for me. One of my life goals is to live a peaceful life aligned with my values, and basically, these shoots would just kill my soul.

I love talking to people, I love taking my time, especially if I am photographing you. Even if it’s a 30 min shoot, I want to take the time to get to know you. I don’t want to rush you out the door if we are having a meaningful conversation.

So, I am breaking up with the marathon shoots, or mini sessions or whatever you want to call them.

But I still want to photograph you and offering affordable portrait sessions for people who need a good and simple portrait.

***We don’t even have to use this backdrop. We can use my plain walls or a beige backdrop.

So here are the details of these simple portraits:

– The cost: $250 + GST

– The details: 30 min shoot + 10 images included.

– Location: My home studio in Edmonton.

Hello 2017!

Hello 2017!

Hello 2017!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s 2017 already. Yeah, I know, another boring blog post about someone else’s 2017 goals. No, don’t worry, I won’t bore you with that.

Actually, I don’t plan to set up a list of goals for 2017. I know business coaches tell you that you have to have a clear vision of your goals so you can reach them and accomplish what is on your list. But the truth is this course for competition is not for me. My goals in life are pretty simple: live a simple, healthy life, be kind, be happy and live with a purpose. I don’t need business goals, fitness goals or social media goals. The goals that I have in my heart are the most important and I want to keep them for me.

The new year is just another day for me, but also the opportunity to start something new. It’s a fresh new canvas, a new blank page in my notebook. Not everything is suddenly new and better, it takes a lot of time to change and be better at something. But the possibilities are here. And we have 365 days to get there.

So, I am not going to bore you with a list of unrealistic goals. I am just going to wish me a happy year, full of laughter, good times, in great company, a good health, a year full of business opportunities, a year of growth for my business and my photography, lots of travels, lots of pizza and good coffee.

Cheers guys!

xoxo
