You may or may not know that my business has branched out into branding photography. If you'd like to find out more about it, I wrote a blog about it here. If you want more information about my branding photography specifically, you can click here. I still photograph the babies and the mommies-to-be because that's my passion but I also wanted to do something different. With this type of photography, I can do full branding sessions or just headshots. It all depends on what you're looking for. Even though family-oriented portrait photography can be different than business portrait photography, there are some likenesses as well. In both types of work, I like to bring out the real you. I want you to look at your portraits and see who you really are and what you represent, whether that be in regards to your family or to your career.

I met Stacy through a fellow photog and friend. He was unable to photograph her because he was going to be out of town during her visit her. She had just moved to Texas from Georgia and was here just to handle some personal business. That's where I come in. He asked me to photograph her for him and I said, "Of course!" Stacy and her MUA/hair stylist Roz came over. I was a rather hot day so I had to crank up the AC and bring a fan into the dining room which was turned into a makeup studio. Because I don't have an actual studio and my husband reclaimed my part-time studio, we used my kitchen. Even though I have gone to many a clients' home this was the first time I have ever had to set up in the kitchen. Hey, there's a first time for everything.

While Roz did Stacy's makeup, she told some hilarious stories. She kept me thoroughly entertained. Stacy is an excellent storyteller! Once the makeup was done she got dressed and the session was on. She said she just needed a few images because she was going to have her picture printed in a publication back in Texas. That was her main use of the image but I'm sure other opportunities would come available to use them.

Now we were able to start. We moved into the kitchen and we brought the fan with us. When I first started to photograph her it was like a model session because the wind had her hair blowing like a lingerie commercial. This was not that type of session. Basically, I ended up repositioning the fan so that it would hit her from the waist down. That way she would remain cool and her hair wouldn't blow in the breeze. During the entire session, Roz would touch her up to make sure she was perfect. We also laughed and talked a lot as well. I simply cannot be quiet while I photograph. At any rate, here are some of the images from her session. I was trying to capture her soft friendly side, as well as her "I mean business" side. How'd I do?
