Portrait Photography

Capturing a beautiful portrait that reflects you and your brand without it looking like a generic school picture can be difficult, but having a portrait that shows who you are is well worth it.

 

As humans we are (me included) very self-conscious about our image. 

 

Which means, taking an appealing portrait takes time!

Taking a portrait that matches a client with their brand is one of the most gratifying things in my work. A client needs to be able to identify who is behind the brand in order to connect with it. The first stop in that connection is the portrait.

In a world of selfies and everything at our fingertips, we expect a good image in one click.

 

But preparation (choosing the right clothing, hairstyle and makeup ), building a mood board and understanding expectations, are key elements to beautiful pictures that you can use for years with your brand.

I will work with you on poses as well as fun spontaneous moments. When we’re taking pictures, there are no wrong poses! But before we get started, we will discuss guidelines and comfort meters just between you and me. 

 

Together we will create pictures that capture you. My favorite moment after a photoshoot is when I hear my client say, “Oh I love this one” as their eyes light up. Being proud of how they look and how they represent themselves and their brand is my number one priority.

“The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.”
