Beauty From Within: Meet Estelle

Meet Estelle Brodeur, health and wellness coach here in Richmond. I had the pleasure of working with her last week at Kim Brundage Photography studio prepping Estelle for her business branding session. 


"My personal experience is that awareness of mind, body, and breath creates a strong foundation for navigating life. I also believe that awareness builds self-love, a foundation for all aspects of life, influencing decision making around relationships, work, and purpose. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) specializing in Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga. I believe that yoga is accessible to all who want to explore and benefit from this ancient practice. I enjoy modifying practices for all bodies and ages. I also orchestrate Laughter Yoga RVA, a group that promotes wellness using the practice of unconditional laughter."


Kim Brundage Photography

Kim Brundage specializes in building confidence and business branding through photography. Her clients receive a wardrobe stylist who goes to their home and assists with picking out multiple outfits for the shoot. Ones that will best enhance your body type, coloring, and pop on camera are what they go for. Hair and makeup are done by a team of artists from Makeup By Holly Beauty Partners, (for this one, myself), right at her studio.

Estelle and I chatted about what "look" she wanted to convey through her branding images at Kim's studio. These images are to spruce up her website and allow people to get a firsthand glimpse of her happy, calm, personality through one click. She typically doesn't wear much makeup. We wanted her makeup to be fresh, light, and bright. Her blue eyes were the first thing I saw when she walked through the door, and immediately I knew that would be her best feature to play up for the shoot.
