The portrait experience has changed dramatically in the last few years. You’ve probably been caught in lots of less-than-flattering-phone-pics so you might describe yourself as un-photogenic or camera shy. The part that most of those photos is missing is – intention! Most images you see of yourself are snapshots and snapshots are in an entirely different category than portraits. Wrong lens, wrong light, no consideration to body language or posing.
It’s not wrong to want to look your best, and it’s hard to trust whether someone else will make us look like we want to be seen. No one wants to go to the work of arranging a photoshoot and then not even like the results, so it’s tempting to just put it off.
People who say they dislike how they look in photos have probably never been photographed by a photographer who paid them the right kind of attention. Someone who balances making you feel good and look good. Who knows that angles and flattering lighting are their challenge to solve, not yours. And when you finally see a portrait of yourself where it shows you as you want to be seen, you will never stop looking at it.
If you trust me, this is what I will create for you.
A Portrait Session with Seadance includes
1) A personal pre-shoot consultation to plan your day and tailor your portraits to suit your taste.
2) It includes about an hour in front of the camera on the day of the shoot.
3) An in-person presentation of images afterwards where I encourage you to use my expertise in print display to choose product to suit your decor and lifestyle.
Makeup can be arranged to start your session off feeling oh-so-pampered. I recommend booking an appointment with your favourite hair stylist on the morning of your session.
Prints are sold separately beginning at $79. I offer high quality Canvas wall art from $220 and beautiful packages like luxurious handmade folio boxes and albums from $635. PLUS every image you purchase in print includes the fully retouched digital file for you to share and make your own reprints.
Again, the choice is entirely yours, and we will discuss your preferences at your pre-shoot consultation because we begin with the end in mind.
Send me an email and we’ll talk about your ideas!
I believe everyone can be photogenic when they are relaxed and enjoying themselves and it’s my intention to create images for you that you’ll love and be proud to display!
