Cherry Blossoms

For the longest time my best friend, Nicole and I have been taking about going downtown to High Park to see the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom.

We trekked out on an adventure last year, but it wasn’t a good year for the blossoms, as only a few of them would bloom and would quickly be blown away by the wind. We got there around sunset, and had only a short period of time to take in their beauty. But this year we wanted it all!

We both spent weeks checking for updates on the blossoms. Yesterday we decided to take a trek downtown and to visit High Park to see the beautiful blossoms in full bloom and I’m so glad that we did!

Here are a couple shots from our mini adventure!

Deposits & Payments

As of the beginning of MAY 2017, I will now require a minimum non-refundable deposit upon ALL bookings to confirm dates.

Payments need to be made prior to or on the day of your shoot. Cash or e-transfer to elisa.spinello@hotmail.com, unless otherwise discussed.

Thank you,
Elisa Spinello Photography

Lips as Sweet as Candy!

I’ve always been someone who likes a little pop of colour! Working on bold shoots is one of my favourites. I love when people are as open minded and artistic as I am, it makes the shoot so much more enjoyable!
As much as I do enjoy simple portraiture, I love shoots that are different and that are more interesting.

My model had the idea of putting candy on her lips mid-way through and she did! It was interesting to see and such a great experience!’

The End of a Chapter

It’s been two years since I started college. I was skeptical to go back to school after graduating high school and kept putting it off.
One day, after the constant reminders of my family, friends and boyfriend I decided to sign up, and I got accepted. I was ecstatic.
This was the start of a new chapter in my life. I have learned a lot, experienced new things, met wonderful people and had fun along the way.

It’s been a week since my last class, my last presentation. I’m done college! Woo!

It’s been a wonderful two years and I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family, boyfriend, friends, professors and everyone who has believed in me!
We’ve had a lot of early mornings, long days and late nights shooting to get assignments done. I’ve had the greatest support team a girl could ever dream of!

Last week Durham College also held a Portfolio Showcase for the graduating Digital Photography students. I wanted to thank everyone who came out today to support me and my fellow classmates. Thank you to all the new faces that stopped by and took a minute to flip through my book. Your love and support is tremendously appreciated!

I feel grateful to have been apart of the Durham College Digital Photography program for the last two years and am a bag of mixed emotions as the term comes to an end. It’s been an unforgettable journey and I wouldn’t have been where I am today if it wasn’t for the support, patience and knowledge of the professors that have guided me along the way! Thank you!


Portfolio Showcase

Join me and my fellow classmates tomorrow, Wednesday, April 12th from 11:30am-2pm and from 6pm-8pm at Durham College (Oshawa Campus) in room B105, where will be showcasing our final portfolios.

I can’t express how hard we have all worked and how excited we are to be showcasing our collection of hard work that we have created over the course of two years.

I hope to see you there!
