Pascale Thérien is not only a photographer, she’s also a dedicated and successful business woman. At 19, while working part time as a barmaid, she completed a communications degree at l’UQUAM. Her journey into photography started when, as a radio anchor, she enjoyed taking pictures of her rapper friends.
At 25, she went on a backpacking adventure through Europe and captured with her camera beautiful sceneries and landscapes. During that trip, she discovered her passion for photography. Upon her return, she enrolled and completed an intensive photography course during which she discovered that she wanted to focus on portrait photography.
She further developed her skills through online classes, constant practice and focus and dedication to her art.
Pascale founded La Luz Portrait eight years ago. Starting her own studio provided her with the opportunity to develop her abilities and skills as a business woman.
Pascale is profoundly inspired by the resilience and vulnerability of the women she photographs. She thrives on witnessing women transform physically but also mentally and emotionally. She gains their trust by being available for and deeply interested in their personal transformation. At the end of the day, that’s what makes her work so gratifying.
Pascale’s ambition is to share that passion with other photographers thereby growing her business and expanding this service to many more women.
Pascale is also a mother. She is familiar with the challenges of the modern day woman. For her, every woman is a superhero. She wants to empower women by helping them connect with their inner and outer beauty. That is her motivation and what drives her to follow her dream.
