Getting different looks in portraits with styling, backgrounds and light is what makes an image sing. There’s nothing better than having a client come to you really prepared for a shoot. As far as styling, she actually brought over a few days in advance a lot of the pieces she ended up wearing in these photos. This helped us decide on the looks we wanted for the shoot. We have sophisticated lady, very cute young lady and lady with marvelous hats. So much fun. I used only natural light and reflectors, and a brown jersey fabric that never made it into a dress.
Sooz is a woman who was in business for many years and accomplished a lot in that time. Now that she has retired, she has taken up all manner of artistic endeavors and is extremely talented with design, imagery, sewing book making, and so many other art forms I can’t name them all. So it was important for us to capture the art of her, her style of dress, colors, expressions and attitude. She was so pleased that she decided her husband should come and have his portrait taken also.
