A PORTRAIT IS A MIRROR THAT REMEMBERS!
Coco Chanel once said, “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself!”
I’ve created a studio environment where we give you a “celebrity-for-a-day” experience where we cater to you and focus only on you while you’re in the studio. In fact, we want to pamper you so much that you will want to just relax and become yourself and enjoy the entire experience. That’s when we can create the most beautiful images you’ve ever seen of yourself. Are you ready to experience a pampering with a same-day transformation?
Clients don’t just “have your picture taken” in my studio. You are spoiled and catered to from the moment you step into the studio, my team of makeup artists and stylists and I completely focus on you by pampering and giving you the studio experience of what it feels like to be a celebrity for a day, we discuss the clothing choices that will work best for you, and I take some time to help you to relax and to trust me to take the best images you’ve ever seen of yourself! And, if you’ve been hiding from the camera because you are afraid you don’t know what to do in front of the camera, or you have never liked how you look in images, I can change that. I direct you through poses for the entire session so you don’t have to be concerned about “what do I do with my hands!??”
I’m also a full-service studio. This means that I will be hoping and encouraging you to actually print your images because printed images are the new negatives! Digital images on your phone or a DVD can’t be hung on the wall for your children to enjoy your portrait once you’ve passed on. And, as we’ve all experienced, technology moves on! It’s likely that, 10 years from now, that we will be using some new kind of technology to save our images making CD’s, DVDs, or even USB’s as obsolete as floppy disks are now. But prints will outlast us all. It’s important to provide my clients with legacy images that can be passed on for generations. Your children and grandchildren won’t care that you thought you needed to lose 10 lbs before you had your portrait done, they will just be happy that they have a lasting image by which to remember you and cherish you.
The right Personal Branding portrait conveys, within the first 10-20 seconds, the essence about you even before someone ever meets you. A well taken, professional Personal Branding image matters. A survey given to recruiters revealed that seeing a candidate’s image leaves them with a preconceived impression of the candidates abilities, capabilities, and approachability, and highly influences their perception in their decision to do or not do business with them. A business professional needs to have a portrait that best represents you and your brand.
