For those of you who have not seen my announcement I am now offering GLAM sessions for senior girls. The photoshoot replaces the traditional senior portrait session in the sense that I have a hair and makeup stylist that works with the girls making sure they are picture ready for their session! Included with this special senior photoshoot is a makeup bag that I advertised on my Facebook page. Go check it out to see some of what is offered! With every GLAM senior portrait session you are welcome to bring a friend or up to three friends to share in the experience! Here is a shoot that I did with Abbi and Cayce at my office, OPO startups.
First up is Abbi!
And here are Cayce’s senior portraits!
Then I decided have a little fun with girls to get a little less traditional shot. I love shooting these because the result will never be the same. It’s literally like a having a personal piece of art of yourself!
Here’s a shot of the girls together at the end of their GLAM session!
While a lot of my website shows individuals and corporate shots I love to photograph a family doing what they love to do. Far too often I get parents who try to hold their children’s head and yell at them to smile because they want a good photo. Parents, there’s no need! Go have fun! Go explore! I loved photographing the William’s family for that very reason. They love to go camping, like we did at Klondike park for their shoot, and spend time with each other exploring which is what made this day such a fun one for all of us! I hope you enjoy these and I hope the next time you book your family session you keep this in mind for your family.
Most of us probably overlook getting a new headshot. We may think it’s unnecessary or not important to update our headshot. The reality is that when someone looks at your business they look at you first and make a decision based on their impression whether they want to work with you or not. So then the question is what is your headshot saying about you? Does it send the message that you’re trying to send to a potential client?
I often seen LinkedIn profile pictures that people post that look like it’s their Facebook profile picture they took at a party. Now if you’re a professional party planner then by all means use that photo. If you are in a corporate field, however, then your photo should depict that. You will be much more trusted in your business if your headshot reflects the person you are and the service you provide.
Here is a headshot I recently took for Julie. After a brief consultation with her she decided a more professional headshot would benefit her and her business. Below is the update to her headshot.
Are you a model looking to get signed with an agency or update your portfolio? Male Model, Case, with Talent Plus was looking to get signed to an agency and came to me to begin building his modeling portfolio. We got together to talk about some looks he was looking for and what he thought his agency was looking for and we set a date to shoot. I loved this shoot because we did it in my living room for that was all I had available at the moment on short notice. Both Case and I were extremely happy with the results despite the small low budget conditions. He even ended up signing with his modeling agency as he hoped.
Here are a few shots from Julie’s shoot. Julie is a dear friend of mine and one of the most hard working driven people I know.
