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.

how did you find the experience of getting your photo taken

One of the most fascinating parts of the Beautiful You Studio is that everyday we are blown away by the incredible woman who walk through our door! Meet Louise she’s awesome! Louise visited the studio for new corporate shots to use across her social media and work platforms :)  I sat down with Louise after her session and asked her a few questions :)

Q – who are you and what is your profession?
​My name is Louise Archer and  I work for Toshiba Medical Systems as Global Marketing Manager for Ultrasound, based in Nasushiobara in Japan​. I’ve spent most of my life working in clinically in Diagnostic Imaging and the last 15 years in the corporate environment with Toshiba.  I love the company I work for, amazing people, doing amazing things on a daily basis..
Living in Japan is a wonderful

​cultural experience which I am really embracing.
Q – what brought you to the studio to get new corporate images?
​A couple of reasons, firstly because of my job, people need a good photo for various events and I only had an old iPhone picture that I used, it didn’t look very professional and so I thought an update was in order.
Secondly, part of the getting “into” the culture has got me writing a blog called “Just Life (in Japan)” and also writing for the tourist website “Japan Travel” amongst other things.  ​
​I worked out I have about 10 different online photos​ representing the sites and social networks I used, so I was keen to get one great photo and use it everywhere..
Q – how did you find the experience of getting your photo taken
​I loved it, it was very casual and relaxed, having hair and makeup done all in one place made it easy.   I really loved that we used natural light for the photos…  Plus they turned out great, so I couldn’t be happier.  I’ve spent the morning changing my “profile pic” on 14 different sites :-)
The makeup was also great, I left the studio and went and got my passport photo done – first decent passport photo I have ever had !
To see some of the amazing pics an stories from louise’s adventures in Japan her blog can be found here http://louozinjapan.blogspot.com.au  Also see if you can find her new updated Beautiful You headshot! looks great!

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!
