Hello Friends! I’m excited to share my Top 3 Poses when photographing Styled Studio Bridal. I want to go beyond the images of just the ring and focus on creative lighting or using backgrounds and props around the studio.
When planning a shoot we always consider multiple aspects: wardrobe, backdrops, props, lighting, etc. There are so many ingredients in our cocktails and in my opinion, there’s really no right or wrong yet no ingredient carries more weight than lighting. After all, in photography, lighting truly is everything.
For the most part professional headshots are a commodity. The average headshot client is looking for the fastest cheapest way to get a quick headshot. Of course, if you have the right client, you can flip a basic headshot into a personal branding or portrait session and make a little more money. However, larger companies, doctors, lawyers, and realtors could care less about holding a cup of coffee and laughing! So, what else can we offer these headshot clients to increase profitability, loyalty, and service?
Princess sessions are all the rave right now. The littles and parents get so excited for these! You can make it such an amazing experience for your clients. I mean, who doesn’t want to dress up as a princess and have it documented? They are pretty fun for me too, the joy that travels through that lens is quite amazing.
When I first started my business 11 years ago there was no Facebook, no Instagram or Pinterest. Youtube was just getting started. There weren’t posing guides or professional photographers teaching in person or online workshops on the art of posing.
An editorial portrait is one that tells a story. The story of who your client is yes, but also the narrative that you’re creating about her. Are you going to portray your client as sensual? As a queen? Is she soft and romantic or strong and edgy? Your lighting, color palette, styling and camera angle – all of it works together to tell your story.
