The anatomy of a makeover portrait session
I like to start with the end product in mind! So this is why we always begin a portrait session with a consult call/ in studio meeting..
This is where we can chat about how you’d like to be photographed, clothing, props, style and who you want to be photographed with. Maybe you already have something in mind?
We will work out what photos we’ll take to produce what you want, whether it’s a gallery on your wall, one big print, or a folio box full of gorgeous prints to cherish forever.
Arriving into our boutique nerang studio, we will go through the clothes you have brought along, or what we have selected from the studio wardrobe, and finalise all the outfits. From there, you’re in the hands our very experienced makeup artist/ hairstylist ready to transform you and highlight the best of you! You will have a chat to her about how you like your makeup, and there are guides so you can get a visual on how light or heavy you prefer. This is fantastic for those of us that don’t really know makeup, and need to have a visual. We will both be there to help out if you have no idea what you are after, we will go through colours and work with you. Everyone wants “natural” makeup, but we do need to take it up a notch from what you’re used to, after all this is a makeover experience.. This is your chance to sit back, relax and be pampered!
The next step in this experience is the PHOTO SHOOT
Throughout the photo session, my 2 plus decades of experience will show, as I guide you through a fun and relaxed session, to bring out the best version of you!
There will be fully directed posing, maybe even an assistant gently fanning your hair – you’ll feel like you’re in a vogue photo shoot. There’s creative lighting to light up certain angles, and hide others. Then there’s me and the camera moving all around you and finding the best angle for you!
All of these elements come together to bring the best version of you into the spotlight and create magic!
It’s going to be so much fun! I can not wait to meet you and take the most beautiful photos of you, that you’ve ever seen
