No matter how long I have been doing photography as a business, there are still a few things I do right before each and every session. Now, this is outside of the regular "get all the equipment ready" step, which usually happens way ahead of time. This post is all about that time between when I arrive at the Studio (about 1 hour before the session is scheduled to begin) and when I have to be ready to photograph my clients…
Jolie Gotique is a mobile fashion boutique based in Greenwich, Connecticut. Penny, the owner, is a local Greenwich resident with an amazing fashion style that she infuses into her business. Twice a year, Penny gathers a team of creative professionals to do a spring (and then a fall) photoshoot for her business. It takes a team (photographer, stylist, hair & makeup artist), and a new location each time to make this happen.
I announced previously my need to find a new vendor for the heirloom presentation boxes that are included in my top two Collections. After an extensive search, I'm so excited to show you the new product. They are hand-crafted by Michael Chinn in San Fransisco California (you can see more of his work on his website: http://michaelchinn.com/) and he's been making them since 1999 after training under a master bookbinder from England!
I love the clean lines and the simple design.. which fits so well with the style of photography my clients hire me to do. Most of all, it's the best way to keep your precious photographs safe and guarantee their longevity while still being able to enjoy them.
Newborn photography, like anything else, has specific styles and methods that are popular among photographers. Right now, there are two main styles that most photographers fall into - Studio (posed) and Lifestyle (at home, not posed).
My take on newborn photography is a little bit different.. because I kind of mix the two.
