What Makes our team of Houston Portrait Photographers Different?
Because of our extensive background in Dance Photography, when in portrait Sessions, we are able to guide in posing with ease and precision that is unparalleled. Our understanding of movement and the body allows us to aid in making you feel and look at your best.
Our studio has a variety of amenities that create an easy-going environment. We also have a live-viewing monitor of all the images as they’re being shot so that our clients can see themselves in each shot. If the lighting or posing is not to their taste, then we can correct it immediately. Our clients always leave with exactly what they were looking for, and do not need to wait to see the images until after the Session.
Capturing movement has allowed us to create imagery with dancers that evoke their personalities and energy in a pure way. We have cultivated this skill with our portrait photography by taking our skills in guiding dancers in their posing, to all of our clients.
We have been told the way we guide in posing, our mood boards that we create prior to the shoot, and our consultation call a week before the Session, create an environment of confidence for our clients. We are honored to have developed this atmosphere in our studio.
How to prepare for your headshot or Portrait Photography Session?
Brainstorm. When we have our consultation call, if you have a vision for what you’re looking for, communicating it to us through samples and specific details will help.
We can also create a concept for you, colors and all. So just brainstorm on your specific tastes and interests, and colors you prefer with your skin tone and more. Take this as a chance to get to know yourself! We will create a concept that complements you.
Hair and Makeup
If your Session includes hair and makeup, then find as many examples of what you’re looking for as possible. There are a surprising amount of different kinds of smokey eye looks than you’d think. Find the one that suits you best, that makes you feel the most excited and confident.
Can’t decide on a backdrop color? Go to Pinterest, google images, or Instagram and start collecting images that you want to replicate. We can take the lighting, the makeup, the hair, the colors, from all of the photos that you bring us, and we can put them together in a way that captures your unique vision.
Are there any pieces that you want to be photographed in? Any colors that you think go with any of the colors you’ve been playing with? If so, bring them! We encourage our clients to bring as much wardrobe as possible so that we have a large variety to work with. We also have a designer wardrobe collection in our Houston photography studio, but more is always better.
