Studio Self Portraits

Every so often when I set up my studio for clients, I tend to leave all the lighting where it was and experiment for a few days afterwards. Typically because no one else is around, I tend to jump in front of the camera and test the lighting.

On this particular day, I took one of my mother’s scarves and utilized it as a prop. I loved throwing it in different directions while I sat on the floor, and the results speak for themselves.

A behind the scenes look at the lighting setup. The red scarf on the floor is where I was seated.

Sometimes a little experimentation leads to breakthroughs and new direction to move towards. And this shoot did just that for me. I invite you all to consider studio portraits as an alternative to the typical on-location shoot. Those shoots have their time and place, however if you want portraits with a lot more emotion and depth, I invite you to step into my studio.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
