Magazine Submissions for Model Kids

These images were published in CanKids Magazine  Vol 2. Feb 2021

Shamoy was one day shy from his 13th birthday when we did this photoshoot.  We broke the session in two parts so that we could get outdoor and Studio Shots.    We met in the Underpass Park in Toronto where we shot this Urban-Editorial Styled Series.  This part of the session was quick and we left when it got cold enough to continue. 

We then moved on to the studio where we shot different portraits.  Shamoy has a very powerful gaze that does not over shine his sensitive side.   

Working with Shamoy made me realize how much I enjoy shooting model boys.   


When you book a Photography Session, it is important to know what the purpose of your images will be.  Perhaps you want to build your portfolio, participate in an event like the Canadian Model and Talent Convention  or submit to Magazines for Publication.   Whatever your goals are, it is important to discuss them prior to the session so that your photographer can shoot with that in mind.   

Shamoy’s images were published in CanKids Canada Magazine Feb 2021 Vol 2 Issue.  CanKids Canada is a Canadian based Magazine.  Submissions are absolutely free and there are no purchase requirements to be featured.   The magazine itself is distributed by the publishing platform.   Digital Copies are $23CAD* and Print is $31.99CAD*.  Book your session and get ready to be published!

*These are the current prices as of February 2021. 




Building a Model Portfolio

“Modeling is the culmination of lighting, texture, body movement, and your soul’s expression.” 
― Adrienne Posey

A Modeling Portfolio should be classy, simple and focus on the subject more so than the outfit.  A successful session is one where the skills of the photographer, the hair and makeup artist, the stylist and model come together in harmony.    If you are an aspiring model,  a Portfolio building session is a great way to start your career.  They can be pricey because so much planning and production goes behind every image. Your portfolio is an investment and choosing the right team and preparing for your session will guarantee the best outcome. 

  • Make sure you book your session with a Professional Photographer that you trust
  • Plan your outfits wisely or hire a stylist
  • Invest in a Hair and Makeup Artist
  • Trust your team
  • Have fun!
  • When you book a session with VioletaKids, I will guide you through the process of preparing for your session.  You will receive a list of clothing items that will make a great portfolio and will answer all your questions.  


    Welcome!  For those who don’t know, I am the creative behind Violeta Creative and Violeta Kids Photo. My name is Gloria, not Violeta, but I use Violeta as a creative name for my commercial work. I was born and raised in Mexico but I consider myself Canadian now. I have been photographing people for as long as I can remember. I love travelling and learning and experiencing different cultures through food, dance, clothing and artifacts.  

    I decided to start a visual blog as a way to connect with my clients and show more about the process behind my work. When I was in Art School, having a blog was a mandatory way to share our process, progress and final work with our peers. Sharing it with other creatives would allow us to learn and grow as artists. In this blog I will be sharing not only my final work but some snapshots of inspiration images and behind-the-scenes shots of my photoshoots as well as some photos that I shoot with my phone and that I really love.
