Your Portrait Investment
A MESSAGE FROM JEFF:
A portrait can transform the way you feel about yourself. A portrait can be an incredible celebration of a special accomplishment in your life or the lives of the ones you love. A portrait can be an incredible gift.
Everyone deserves a beautiful portrait of themselves, and I can speak to the power of portraiture from my own personal experiences. When I started getting serious about photography, I hired a few of the local photographers who I have looked up to for some time to capture some portraits. I wanted to experience what it was like to be on the other side of the camera. Not only do I understand the vulnerability and uncertainty that you may feel during a portrait session, but I also understand the incredible confidence that beautiful images can give you.
You, too, deserve images you are proud of. Maybe it’s to celebrate an accomplishment in your life. Maybe you are investing in your personal brand and want to establish your image. Maybe it’s a gift for someone you love. Maybe it’s a way to create an image of the ones you love into a fine art
portraiture worthy of your mantelpiece. Maybe you are a performer or artist that needs promotional imagery. Or… maybe it is just time to reward yourself. Whatever the reason, I’ll help you feel comfortable, confident and to create images that meets your goals. Our images will flatter and showcase your strengths.
I infuse my study of fashion portraiture and my experience as a commercial photographer into your imagery. This ranges from developing a concept, assisting you in finding stunning hair and makeup, helping you select striking wardrobe, as well as fashion retouching and toning. In the end, I use my experience to help you create portraits worthy of your wall.
When you hire me for your portrait session, you get more than a remarkable final image. You get a remarkable and enjoyable experience. I can’t wait to get started!
On the day of the shoot you’ll want to arrive rested and ready to create stunning images with me! No need to be anxious, I’ll walk you through the entire process!
There are two essential things we focus on for the shoot day; your comfort and creating beautiful images. If there is anything you need, just ask! The day will begin with going over your vision and reaffirm the direction of the shoot. You will want to begin with hair and makeup that starts with more of a natural look first, and then builds to
anything more dramatic.
Shoots will typically be on location, so come prepped and ready. For studio shoots we can create a wide range of backgrounds that fit the look you are going for.
Lastly I don’t keep your images a secret on the day. Along the Way we will take a look at what we’ve been creating to get your feedback, preferences, and to ensure you are loving what we are creating.
AFTER THE SHOOT
After the shoot, you will be provided with an online gallery featuring all of the days best captures. I will personal choose my favorite images based upon my years of professional experience!
All my images will be professionally retouched to help reduced any distractions (blemishes, etc.) and to perfect the images. I'll use the same techniques I've used to have my work featured! I personally will color grade your images, toning them to achieve the desired mood.
Images can be delivered as digital files but are also available in a full range of fine art prints and products available ranging from canvas prints, metal prints, and much more. I am happy to help you in the image selection processes as to how your final images should be printed and displayed.
