My lifestyle approach portrays people doing the things they usually enjoy, with room for spontaneous situations in a relaxed and casual manner. And while I do guide you throughout the session, I will also ask you to enjoy the moment and be yourself so I can capture your personality and natural expressions.
These sessions take place on location (which can be your home or somewhere you feel comfortable, indoors or outdoors) and work very well for family sessions, couples’ & engagement sessions, and maternity portraits.
My portrait couture approach provides studied portraits, that are more carefully planned and posed to bring out your best features. Depending on the portrait you want, these will focus on accentuating beauty, relationships or professionalism – for example for your LinkedIn profile. During the session I will be pose-directing you to make you look your best through the lens.
ABOUT THE SESSIONS
Planning the shoot will involve selecting a style or concept, a location, and time & date. I usually do a pre-consultation to cover all these subjects, and talk about your expectations. The sessions’ length will vary depending on the kind of portraits you want, but they usually take around an hour – make sure to consider some extra time if toddlers are joining the shoot (and an extra outfit in case of emergency! :). Once your session has been scheduled, I will plan the shoot accordingly and send you the relevant guides with tips so that you know the best way to prepare for your shoot.
