san diego Portrait photographer
You’ve been dreaming of a professional portrait session for a while now. The thought of deciding what to wear is dizzying. The good news is, the sky’s the limit, and I’m here to help.
First, you’ll want to think about how you’d like to be photographed, and what kinds of artwork you want. Before your portrait session, take time to scroll through our website for ideas. Maybe search for images that match your desires. Next, you will want to look through your closet and take pictures. Consider options that are casual, sophisticated, fun, professional, sensual, and items you own that make you feel amazing. Lean toward softer tones and rich textures – velvet, chunky knits, cashmere, lace, and tulle – and avoid flashy prints or plaids. Likewise, look for things that are comfortable and elegant. Imagine a beautiful portrait of yourself on your living room wall, and what you’re wearing in it.
When we meet for your design consultation, we’ll discuss at length what your vision is for your shoot, and your goals for your artwork. We’ll go over your palette and wardrobe to tailor a session specifically to you, and develop a detailed plan for your clothing, hair, makeup, posing, and lighting. In addition, I usually suggest you bring several outfits on the day of your shoot, and I’m also happy to offer selections from our ever-expanding studio wardrobe.
Your portraiture is about you looking and feeling fabulous. I’ll handcraft a series of styles and looks to showcase your one-of-a-kind beauty and charm. You won’t believe your eyes when you see how stunning you are, and you’ll be amazed at how much fun you had. Because I want you to own images of yourself that you’ll love and cherish forever. Photos of you in your element, comfortable, powerful, vibrant, bold, and outrageously gorgeous. Photos that tell your story, and celebrate the many qualities that make you uniquely extraordinary.
