A few months ago, I had Branding Photos taken with Puja. I had seen some of her past photos and was really impressed with them. I was needing some images for my new business. Puja was very helpful when we were selecting the date and was very accommodating with my busy schedule. I really enjoyed receiving her information package in the mail as it helped me prepare outfits, looks and colours for the day. During our phone conference, we discussed my brand colours and styles that would suit my photo needs.
On the day of the session, I arrived a bit frazzled after getting my four children off to school and was slightly anxious. Puja’s studio space and make-up artist helped put me at ease and relax. The nerves quickly disappeared and I was comfortable and able to focus on taking great photos. I was most impressed with my hair and makeup! Puja was very helpful in selecting outfits and accessories for each look and I really appreciated the photo coaching she gave me before we started. They were quick tips and I was always guided clearly into new photo positions which made me feel very relaxed and confident in both the photographer and in the process.
We were able to have enough looks photographed to meet my varied business needs and I was so impressed with how the photos turned out, I cried when I saw them! I have never looked so beautiful! Puja has a real talent with photography and I am very thankful that I used her services to help grow my business. I would highly recommend Puja for personal Branding Photos!
The moment I saw Puja’s photographs, I fall in love with her beautiful art and knew I have to have my branding photos taken by her. After I booked an appointment I immediately got phone call to discuss any details prior to our photo shoot. We talked about wardrobe choices , and making sure I won’t forget to have my colour touched up and nails done...
On the day of my photo shoot we started very early with makeup and hair. Puja always made sure I am happy with the results otherwise she would have not continued. The day was long, exhausting yet so much fun!! I was pleasantly surprised by Puja’s attention to every detail including my comfort. Because you know, posing for a picture whole day can be very tiring ...After I received my photos I had to look twice at them, I couldn’t believe it was me. Puja really knows how to bring the best in you with her wonderful photography. I am very happy with my pictures and I will cherish them forever.
I loved my photoshoot with Zoom into Life photography. It was a great experience working with Puja. I had no idea what to expect for my first individual shoot but she explained everything and made me feel comfortable throughout. I felt so glamorous on the day of my shoot with my hair and makeup and learnt some awesome tips for posing. It was such a professional and fun experience, I would definitely recommend a session with Puja!
I had my branding photo shoot done with Puja owner of Zoom into life photography last August. I was hearing such wonderful things about Puja’s ability to capture who you really are behind the lense and I saw some of her behind the scenes footage from her other photo shoots.
I was blown away by the behind the scenes videos she posts and was absolutely wowed by the images she captured. I knew after seeing these that when I was ready to have mine done, without a doubt Puja would be the one! My whole experience with Puja from the beginning to the end was so professional and the guidance she offered me really helped me with my branding. Puja walked me through my session with the smallest details right down to jewelry and accessories for my shoot. The booklet she mailed out was so lovely and very professional, definitely a beautiful touch.
Some of my branding photos involved my daughter and I have to say I was very impressed by how comfortable she made my daughter feel and truly turned her into a natural little model. I’ve heard feedback from lots of family and friend telling me that I should now get my daughter into modelling and acting as she she played the role well. I agree yes she did but with Puja’s guidance. If you’re looking or even thinking about branding yourself I would highly recommend you take a look at what Puja has to offer! It was truly a life changing experience to see myself through Puja’s lense!
In the past I have had headshots done however I was never happy with the outcome and thus never used them. I felt the pictures never really captured what I felt I looked like so was very hesitant to try again. I heard Puja speak at a network meeting about how people’s first impressions by our profile pic can greatly affect the way they look at us as professionals and that by using a selfie we are indirectly sending our potential clients a message. And of course, I was using a selfie at the time and this really made me realize that I wasn’t portraying the powerhouse serial entrepreneur that I was.
When I booked the shoot I was very nervous. It wasn’t just a show up and lets see what happens type of process. Puja wanted to do a consultation call to go over what I wanted to portray in the photo, what I liked and didn’t like about myself and what brand and message I was trying to send out. This process alone was very scary and it really made me think about these very serious questions that I think many of us try to avoid but it was actually a huge eye opener as through this conversation alone I became to actually realize what message I wanted. The closer the date got the more nervous I was. I had to go shopping for clothing and props which is not one of my favourite things to do but again this process taught me a lot about who I am and the image I want. I also had to prepare a video message for my video card which was very challenge as I have several businesses and I wasn’t quite sure how to tie them all together. To be honest I almost said to forgo it and I am so thankful that I was brave enough to do it.
The day of the photo shoot I felt so welcomed by Puja. She opened up her home to me and made me feel so comfortable. We sat and chatted a while and then was pampered by her colleague who did my hair and makeup. Puja was so great at showing me how to smile, sit and stand in a way that the photo would highlight my great qualities but still be authentic to who I was. I love that she was able to bring all the photos together so that branding for all of my businesses was a simple process.
After the shoot was over I was very relieved but also very excited. I saw some sneak peak pictures during the shoot and I was incredibly enthused at how they turned out in their raw form. I truly felt so pampered the day of the shoot and most important Puja made me feel like a powerhouse. The video card even went off perfectly, much better then I had expected. Yes, I did cry watching the playback!
This entire process from start to finish was truly an experience. This wasn’t just about a head shot. It really gave me the incentive to think about who I was, What I wanted to portray, how I could tie in my multiple businesses, what types of photos would I need and what would I use them for. From the consult call, to receiving her very thorough consult guide in the mail to the entire photo shoot day and the final presentation day when I finally got to see my images was such a smooth, professional process. I was very impressed. The pictures were incredible and really capture who I felt I was on the inside. Because of Puja's experience in the magazine and fashion world, her photo quality is truly incredible.
I definitely would recommend Puja to anyone who really wants to focus on their brand and image. She has been instrumental throughout this process and I never imagined that I could be so proud of pictures that weren’t the perfect posed filtered selfie. The experience was enlightening, empowering, motivating and exciting and it really felt like I could take on the world. This is something that is a necessity not a luxury!!
When it came time for me to hire a photographer to do my branding photos and business video card after doing some research choosing Zoom into Life Photography was the only choice. I had read the reviews and seen Puja's work on her facebook and web page. It's not often you find a professional who is so concerned and adept at finding the character of her subject. Puja took the time to chat with me in order to get a sense of who I am and what I would like to portray to my target audience....I am more than trilled with how my photos turned out. I've gotten non stop compliments on her work but most importantly how she was able to capture my genuine heart felt smile. She does a fantastic job with true genuineness and love in her heart.
I didn't know what to expect or really even what to look for but Puja walked me through every step ensuring that I felt comfortable. She explained and recommended based on previous experience what photos I could use for different social media platforms. She shared her insight and experience as well as her network in order to make this experience as successful as possible!
I would definitely recommend if you're looking for branding photos or glamour to meet with Puja Misra
I became interested in trying a makeover photo shoot after reading other women's comments about how good it made them feel about themselves. I've been going through some major transitions in my life, and it felt like something like this would be a real pick me up. I'm so glad I did it! I think as women in this society we're so used to seeing ourselves in an unflattering way, always focusing upon what we feel is not good enough about our bodies or how we look.
Any time I've had photographs taken in the past, I've never been happy with how they turned out. I usually find it difficult to even look at pictures of myself, because my eye always goes to what I think is not okay. I can honestly say that this is the first time I've looked at photographs of myself and been really and truly happy with them. Really all of the photos taken are so beautiful. Words cannot express how overwhelming it was to walk in and watch the video and to see all those photos on the wall and I think that all of them were beautiful...that I Look Beautiful in them.
I absolutely love my photos and know that I will always cherish them and the memories of our photo shoot.
Kids grow up so fast and before you know it they are adults... My older daughter is 18 now and moved to university this year. The last time I did family photoshoot professionally was when my little daughter was born which was more then 10 years ago. I know from my personal experience that I will appreciate these portraits & this special day with my daughters even more when I will be looking back at these fabulous portraits many years from now - It's an everlasting memory for all of us.
We all very much enjoyed the warm experience and meeting your lovely family which can make anyone feel very comfortable and at ease. It was lots of fun and very professional at the same time. Puja can do wonders in her studio creating many different environments in merely blink of the eye, setting stage for the magic to take place. She will guide you through the whole photography session to ensure you will get the most flattering pictures.
I would definitely recommend to every family invest one day from their life in the photoshoot which will result in fantastic portraits which will stay with your family & your children forever.
Thank you so much for making the whole experience so warm, exciting & fun. I would even say magical with all the transformation happening in front of your eyes and fabulous result in the end. I am going to recommend all my friends to work with you. Puja you are The Best!
I was stunned and speechless when I saw my portraits! I look like a supermodel! Puja captured my personality and highlighted my features in a tasteful, classy and artful way. My portraits show my inner fire and a feminine dainty side that I never even realized I had.
The care and attention to detail made the experience surreal. It was comfortable, fun, and unassuming. All women should have this experience on their bucket list. You may just find things out about yourself you never knew and will no doubt feel empowered and more confident than you ever have before.
Puja has a remarkable passion for life, the art of photography and capturing the aspects that make us all beautiful and unique from within.
"As a working mother of two young children, worn down by the daily grind of work, life & imbalance, getting my portraits done was number 87 in my priority list. That was until a conversation with Puja sharing her views on celebrating womanhood and allowing ourselves to be pretty at every stage of life. A lot of what she had to say resonated with me in a deep personal way, so I decided to go ahead (admittedly, a bit nervous at first!) and do something nice for myself for a change. As the date approached, the excitement began and oh boy! was I ever glad I did this! the end result was fabulous portraits capturing me in a very natural, fun and relaxed state of mind. I would highly recommend Puja's talent and skill as a must have experience for every woman, or as a special gift from any one that has a woman in their lives." Every woman should have their contemporary beauty shoot done!
I had a great experience with Zoom Into Life because I got a chance to find out what modelling is all about. I always had a dream to become a model or an actress when I grow up. When I saw my portraits I couldn't believe my eyes, I looked like a Model. I know now that someday I can & will be a model.This was a great experience which made me feel that I can do it & gave me confidence to pursue my dream further in the future.
While in the midst of studying for exams, I had received an email from my mom that we were apparently having some sort of a photoshoot done. I actually had two formal photoshoots done before, one for a friend of mine's birthday party a number of years ago, and another with an acquaintance of my mom's. I remember not being as content as I thought I would be with the pictures; I felt as if the pictures didn't really reflect me very well. Come to think of it, I'd never really been quite content with pictures that other people take of me.
Coming into your photoshoot, I was hopeful that this one would be different from the rest – and it was, and more. I immediately felt that you and your team really cared about me as an individual; that you all really wanted to bring out the best of me through your photographs and through the experience as a whole, which you all most certainly did. For the first time, I was really happy with how my pictures turned out, and like you said, it's certainly a confidence booster when you can stand in front of the lens and be captured for how you see yourself. Not only that, but you also provided an amazing mother-daughter experience for my mom and I. You're right – we look like we could be sisters! Again, thank you so much for the incredible experience; it was truly an experience that I'm certain my mom and I will never forget and will be able to look back on for the years to come.
This year, my eldest child took flight from the home nest to begin a new journey all on her own. When Rachel left for university this past September for her first year of university, I felt the space left empty by her absence. Instead of 5 at the dinner table, there was now 4. While Rachel and I would frequently text each other or faceTime or skype, we still missed her. I remember vividly her birth, her infancy, her childhood and her teenage years. While each child is unique in their own way with their own personalities and character traits, there is an unique bond with the first born, the daughter, the one who you try to do everything ‘right by the parenting book’ as a mother since you have no prior experience. I’ve always loved my role as a mother and spent many hours just mesmerized by the children, watching them, observing them, cultivating them, guiding them and simply loving them.
When I saw your video ad on facebook, I was guided to click on it for more information. This was unusual, as I usually just scroll through the hundreds of business ads every once in a while. I seem to recall what caught my eye was your video ad for a Mother and Daughter portrait. It immediately made me think of Rachel and I as it was coming up to Christmas and the fact that I have never done a professional portrait session with my daughter, and that I also needed a business portrait, I was intrigued to know more about you. I found you on facebook and I could tell by what intrigues you, is also what intrigues me i.e. the secret, spirituality, self development. I knew then that this session would not be just about taking a picture but much deeper than that and that is exactly what I was looking for. From the moment that I talked to you on the phone the first time, I knew that you understood people at that deeper level. When Rachel and I walked into your studio, we were immediately greeted with friendliness, a genuine caring and interest by you & your team. We could talk at the same level and I could see that what mattered to your family is also what matters to my family.
I do remember being hesitant of getting my picture taken without glasses as I’ve never taken off my glasses for a photograph since my wedding day 22 years ago! You and your team, reassured me that the pictures would be beautiful without the glasses as well and so I decided to just let go and put my trust into your hands. I’m so glad I did because you were able to bring out an inner and outer beauty that I had never thought I had. I’ve always been told that I see the beauty in others, that my strength is to see the gift and inner pilot light in others, but when the spotlight shines on me, I tend to shy away from it. Well, for so many hours during the shoot, the spotlight shone on me! At first, I felt giggly and a bit uncomfortable, but I very quickly became comfortable in front of the lens. All throughout the photoshoot, you explained what you were looking for. It was a fun experience! Watching my daughter go through the experience was also a highlight for me because she is so beautiful both inside and out! You were very patient, and took such care of us in every such way. Even when your back was hurting you plowed on, though I was worried about you as a health care provider!
When we came today to look at the photographs, it exceeded my expectations! We looked stunning! I have to say, I’ve never said that before: ) and even without the glasses : )) What I noticed was the sparkle in the eye, the natural look, the lighting, the softness, the smile! I realized I was looking within me and I could see the glow of the inner pilot light shining! As psychology, medical science, health, coaching, creative design are all my areas of interest, I felt you captured all the aspects of me in the photos.
The entire experience exceeded beyond my expectations for my daughter and I. It was a special moment that allowed both my daughter and I to carve away time to step into who we are fully, and to embrace it in front of the camera. Looking at the portraits, I see how much my daughter resembles me not just in personality, outlook but also our outer appearance. I guess the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree! You have the ability to capture both the softness and the strength of who we are. That moment in time was captured for many years forward, and it was worth every penny.
You are right - our portrait folio box is a Heirloom box. It’s a box of Connection, a box of Inner Pilot Light, a box of Beauty and a box of Love. Thank you Puja and your team for putting everything in this box that I will treasure forever!!
My photo shoot is something I will treasure forever! From hair & makeup to styling & ambiance during the shoot, everything was par excellence. I felt like a model of a fashion magazine & didn't want the shoot to end ever. It was one of the most empowering & uplifting experience of my life. Since I have seen my portraits I have a feeling of inner happiness, its a feeling that I don't have enough words to describe them. I cant stop showing my portraits to everyone I meet. Zoom Into Life knows how to capture a woman's natural inner beauty. I would 100% recommend every woman to get their Beauty shoot done from Puja, the boost in confidence that this shoot will give them as it has given me is priceless. Puja you are a superstar!
This was my 1st shoot ever in a professional studio & although I was a little nervous Puja and her team made the entire setting so comfortable and fun that any reservations that I had quickly vanished. I loved my shoot, I felt so girly & pampered, it was such a new & great experience. Thank you for my lovely portraits!
