Mothers Day sessions

This week we look back on some of our favourite mother and daughter/son sessions in the studio.  From locations to studio and whatever age you are these are always such worthwhile sessions.  To have a photograph of yourself and your mum, parents or significant other I just don’t think its something you will ever regret doing.  So hi to all the mums out there for being such legends and get in touch if you would like to book in a mothers day session with your special person this mothers day.

What does MYOB have to do with portraiture?

Last month gorgeous Brooke of “Brooke’s Books” came to the studio for some new corporate shots.  We got talking about all things TAX ( stick with me here! ) check out a bit about Brooke below and her gorgeous new corporate shots she is now using for her business.
Who are you?
I am a registered BAS Agent, award winning MYOB certified consultant and the owner of a Bookkeeping and Consulting company.
What do you do?
My aim is to assist and empower small business owners, especially women, in managing their business finances. The majority of my time is spent consulting with new and existing business owners on the correct accounting software package and providing assistance in the areas they maybe struggling with.
What is your business?
We provide a variety of services which include;  accounting software solutions, one on one and group training, consulting, as well as a range of bookkeeping and BAS services. We also work in conjunction with the two leading software companies in Australia, MYOB and Xero.
How does your business help the busy woman today?
My business focuses on the day to day running of a small business. I find the majority of my clients feel overwhelmed when it comes to keeping their BAS up to date or remembering when they need to lodge their superannuation. With our focus on cloud accounting, we take the pressure off managing GST, invoices, expenses and payroll. At Brooke’s Books we are a support hub which give the business owners freedom to get back to what they do best.
Where have you used your new headshot?
I had my photos taken for the Every Women Expo which I attended this year. One of the photos was blown up to a life size poster and was used on the walls of my display stand. I have also used the photographs for business cards and brochures.

Woman of Perth project – the amazing woman behind the images

 

 

 

 

 

todays blog post is today of amazing lady Clare Ryan who was in need of new head shots for work. Such an inspirational hard working woman! Ive never laughed so much during a photo shoot.. I’m actually surprised these are in focus!!! only kidding :) read her interview below to get a little insight into the day to day life behind the glossy pages of Scoop magazine xxxx

DSC_6528

Q –   what do you do for a job?  I have many hats at Scoop Publishing so it’s really hard to explain. I’m a fashion editor, editor and stylist. I look after our health and beauty pages as well as mens and womens fashion. I’m responsible for our main cover shoot, homes and interior shoots, as well as being editor of an additional five magazines from our homes and design series.

so whats its like being a fashion editor? It’s fun, I love it. I get to discover what’s going on with our local designers, boutique owners, and amazing talented creatives – photographers, makeup artists, models etc. I love that our publication focuses on the talent in our state. I get to be creative and I really try and push Scoop’s boundaries as well as my own.

is it as glamour as everything things?  Not at all. I’m still writing and organising things that I did when I first started. For our fashion shoot/cover I have to organise everything from the model and style/direction to the taping of the shoes and the food that we all eat on the day. It’s hectic, but I love it. I love the rush of an amazing shoot and holding the magazine in my hand once it’s printed.

whats the best and worst ( hardest ) thing about your job – The best part is seeing all of your hard work come together to produce a lovely publication. The worst? HA! Um, besides constant deadlines I think the hardest part is trying to come up with something original/new for the reader to see. Just when I have an idea for a shoot or an article, someone else prints it a day or so later, so I’m constantly having to rejig ideas and angles. I want to offer something fresh and original. Not copied.

how long has it been since you updates your corporate head shot? 10 years. My last headshot was taken on a friends camera before we were heading out to a lunch haha, I don’t think I even did my hair properly. We just took it in my backyard in five seconds.

how did you find having your hair and makeup done by a professional makeup artist? So much fun. It’s interesting how you look after having professional hair and makeup, it’s worth it.

how did you feel getting your portrait taken? It felt so odd having Stef take my picture because normally I’m with her watching the model get photographed. It was fun, I felt more comfortable outside the studio though and Stef was laughing just as much as I was. I just can’t be serious, as much as I try.

Where are you going to use your new images? I needed a few different options for work. Different magazines I work on have different markets, as well as freelance work that I do. I love the outside images because they really reflect who I am, but I love that we also took studio images because sometimes I have to give black and white headshots.

Wall ART

 

 

 

 

We are so In Love with this image of one of our clients Legs!  ok ok she has such beautiful long legs but it just goes to show that sometimes the most abstract images can make the most beautiful wall art canvas prints!  I love the idea that this can sit as a huge art print on your wall in your home and nobody would even know it was you unless you told them!!!!

bring sexy back..

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the biggest trends right now in photography is Boudoir.. yep people its making a come back.. while some argue it never left we are finding more and more woman are requesting a sexy style of shoot.  Weather it be a shoot for yourself to celebrate how god dame fabulous you are or a milestone or having worked your butt off at the gym why shouldn’t woman celebrate the amazingness of who we are and what we look like!  If you were to do a boudoir shoot what would you’re requests be?  make me look subtle but sexy?  drop dead gorgeous?  bombshell babe? would you be game to shoot semi tasteful topless nudes? or keep it sexy but covered? to celebrate the month of March and the end of summer  I’m going to be posting some thoughts throughout the month about Boudoir shoots and some different ideas to explore for when you come in for your session…  for now here is a taste  of some beautiful images we are working on right now and more to come throughout the month <3amanda3low

Time for an updated profile shot!

I have not had a professional head shot done in over 5 yrs!  I know right..  we all know the saying a plumbers roof leaks all of that..  We finally had a free day on friday and I managed to convince my photographer friend Janet Craig to take some pictures of me in the studio.  its interesting being on the other side of the camera I felt completely not in control ( something I hate I’m such a control freak! ) but at the same time I realised I had to trust My photographer and makeup artist to do there thing.  Im very happy! thankyou team!!! so now you know this is me!!  xxx  Stef

Sometimes the best gift is the one you give yourself.

 

 

 

A little while ago we met Elizabeth. Mum of one she wanted to get some beautiful pictures of herself to remember this time in her life.  I could not have been more blown away by how amazing this young lady was on our shoot day. She knew what she wanted in her shots and i really enjoyed listening to her story. When we got chatting about her makeup look Elizabeth mentioned she never wore makeup and had never had heavy makeup or worn mascarra  so she wanted to experience seeing herself with a heavier makeup look on shoot day.  with her alabaster skin and smoky eyes i think she sure pulls off the look. Can’t wait for Liz to pick up her wall prints on Friday but for now a few of her shots on our new grey studio Set and one on our signature natural light White xxxx Love!!  ps happy Valentines Day!

mums are the best..

One of our favourite shoots to do is our Mother/Daughter sessions.   When Kristale came in for her session with her two beautiful daughters I knew there was some very special shots to be made x  After Kristale’s shoot I asked her a few questions and here is what she had to say about her session..
How did your beautiful you shoot come about ?
My very thoughtful husband got me a voucher for my 30th birthday. He wanted me to feel special and have a memento of how great I looked at 30 to look back on.
Where you nervous before your shoot?
Yes very! I actually told Stef I couldn’t think of anything worse then having photos of myself done.
What was your favourite shot of the day?
The ones of  my girls  and I dressed up in pink fairy dresses it was so fun to do that with them and dance around.
What would you say to woman wanting to do a photo shoot for themselves if you could give one piece of advice?
Just relax and don’t stress about it. The girls will make you feel so comfortable and you will look amazing. I am so so happy with the way my photos turned out and really glad I did it.
