The Brand You Experience
A fully styled photoshoot experience.
This is one of the (many!) photos that Cristina Stoian Portraits brilliantly took of me last month. You are a rock star, Cristina! I am in love with all of them but this is the one I chose to post for now.Tammy Parrish at The Clothing Compass helped with the *very* last minute request for a fantastic wardrobe for this shoot. She found the perfect dresses in no time, minding my socially responsible conditions (only pre-loved clothing) and with loving patience and understanding.What an honour to have worked with these fantastic ladies!

THE BRAND YOU EXPERIENCE
by Cristina Stoian and Tammy Parrish
The Brand You Experience
A fully styled photoshoot experience.
“This experience caused me to think about how we feel as older women who don’t fit in with the stereotypical version of beautiful; how we feel inside vs. how we look outside; and how overly sensitive many of us are to be photographed at a mature age.”
Mary Jane Roy – PWN NL Advisory Board Member | Hatch Incubator | Wize Move Society Thought Leader
What you’ll get
We start with a conversation where together we’ll start the journey to find out what your shoot will be about. What side of yourself you would like to show, what you would like to wear, and what sort of style we’ll put together for you.
The second session is all about you. Hair, make-up, clothes and accessories. You’re totally pampered and together we go through the outfits Tammy has chosen and those you brought and choose which work best. It’s important you feel beautiful in order to feel confident in front of the camera, and this session will definitely make you feel it!
THE EXPERIENCE ITSELF
This is where the fun with the camera starts. Forget all you thought you knew about when people take shots of you, let me work my magic and we’ll see what happens. Which side of you will come bursting through? Only time will tell…
The you, you’ll keep forever. We’ll go through your shots and you can choose which ones you would like to buy. Most people choose between 10-20 shots. The end result will probably be a portrait, as you’ve never seen yourself before. You might be surprised with what we end up with, and you’ll definitely be pleased.

“Cristina knows how to capture the very essence of a person in a photograph. She is extremely professional and goes the extra mile to make sure she gets the shot. And in addition to all of that, she’s a blast to work with.”
Athalie StegemanBusiness Transformation Consultant / The Innovationbroker
“Cristina is a natural professional in photography. How often do you see yourself in a picture thinking: “my god is this really me?” Cristina’s ability to catch the moment of true personal happiness gives me that natural and fresh professional picture that I like to present to the world.”
Dorota Klop-SowinskaTransformation Coach / DoSo!Coaching & Counseling
“Cristina is a great person to work with. She did a photo shoot for me for the Xpat Journal and also for my website and social media. I was extremely happy with the end result: the photo’s. She also delivered it timely and more than we initially agreed. During the photo shoot she put me immediately at ease, she was professional & friendly at the same time. Most importantly people loved the photo’s Cristina took of me.”

"Thank you to this great group of women. You had me laughing my way through a situation for which I definitely had to muscle up my courage!"
Katrien RiksInterior Designer / Katrien Riks | Brand Styling
“Cristina is an intuitive photographer with an eye for the personality inside the sitter… she is also funny and a pleasure to sit for. Her pictures look wonderfully fresh and professional and I am going to work with her again for sure!”
Lara ManquiOwner and Founder / Flourish
“This photo shoot was an incredible experience. The outfits Tammy chose for me and the way Cristina captured me on camera helped me to finally be able to show my true, beautiful self. Also, having photos I’m proud of to send out for speaking engagements and other business related activities saves me so much time and mental energy.”
"Tammy totally understood how to style the concept of what I write in a way that kept me in the forefront as a writer — as opposed to leaving me buried in one of my character’s costumes. She put together a texturally varied wardrobe for the photoshoot that not only worked on the day, but that works for me day today as well. Tammy’s attention to detail is excellent and she styled everything from well-fitted underwear to hats and velvet-covered hula hoops. I’d recommend Tammy for her insightful understanding of a brief, her professionalism and her ability to pull a striking look out of a somewhat small and random wardrobe."
How will I know how to pose?
I will work with you and show you the poses that will work for you and your body. I will direct your poses and you don’t need to have any prior experience.
When do I pick up my photos?
15 days after your shoot there will be a face-to-face session at my studio, I call it the “Reveal”, where you get to admire and order your printed and matted photos. How many you buy, it’s up to you.
Do you retouch the images?
Yes, all your images are retouched, spots and blemishes are removed unless stated otherwise.
How does the wardrobe styling work?
As part of the preparation we’ll have a call to discuss the look and feel you want and the outfits that could accomplish that. We’ll discuss your favorite styles, colors and silhouettes, and what you dislike. Tammy creates a virtual closet for you to upload photos of any clothing items and accessories you might like to wear. She will shop for you and show you potential outfits in your virtual closet to choose from. Use this as an opportunity to update your wardrobe, or rent — the choice is up to you. Tammy attends the shoot to get the styling right on camera.
My name is Cristina and I am a portrait photographer. I’ve learned through the years that photographing the lives and hearts of women runs so much deeper than just getting your picture taken. It’s an emotional experience, one that exposes vulnerabilities, but all the while empowers and uplifts. It’s an experience I want every women to have. One where she realises her beauty is unmistakable and the role that she plays in this world is both irreplaceable and imperative. My promise to you is that once you step in front of my camera, this will happen. And it’s an experience you won’t forget.
I look forward to seeing you in my studio.
My name is Tammy Parrish and I am a personal stylist and former fashion designer. I love to translate who you are inside into a physical expression of clothing and accessories. When the outside matches the inside, you feel more confident and can focus on what’s truly important. Photos are forever, and what you wear should capture the moment, the mood, and your personality. I will work with you and Cristina to curate the best looks for your shoot, and be on-site to make sure they look perfect on camera.
Are you ready to work together?
I look forward to hearing from you,
