Professional headshots for New Hampshire Seacoast realtor, photographed in downtown Dover, New Hampshire.
This is Jen. Jen is the artist behind Beauty On The Run. Jen wanted to make headshots that captured her personality for her business.
Knowing Jen well, and that her brands colors are black and red, we crafted a vision for something extra special to help her stand out.
I love making epic hairspray shots for my wedding clients. Jen has lots of hairspray, I figured, why not make a backlit hairspray shot for Jen? And then gel the lights to make it RED!
And then to really make her headshots stand out, I uplit her with a beauty dish from below, as opposed to traditional portraits lit from the side or above. Uplighting is a gorgeous light when done correctly.
There's a little behind the scenes image at the bottom if you're curious to see what the setup looked like.
The lighting setup:
"What's the most extreme weather you've photographed in?" Eileen asks as we get out of our cars and snug up our winter wear.
"THIS!" I laughed.
Later on when we reviewed the images at the ordering appointment, we agreed, it was 100% worth braving the winds and sideways snow. Thank you, Winter Storm Skylar. The world is my studio!
We made beautiful images for this little one's nursery and a nice portrait of Eileen & Andy to go over the dresser in their bedroom. (Finished products shown here).
