Beauty Portraits w/ Tara at the Studio

This week has been crazy for me. I’ve had 2 shoots almost everyday for the last 4 days. I was so exhausted that I almost rescheduled Tara’s shoot. I’m so glad I didn’t though.It’s been a long time since I shot in the studio. We’ve been so busy with weddings and engagement sessions and now I am gearing up for Fall photos.

This year, in addition to outdoor sessions, I will be offering studio sessions that women can book as a gift to themselves or the husbands can reserve as a really special gift to their wives. Because women, we give so much to others but not enough to ourselves.

So I asked Tara to come in so we can kickstart this campaign. I’ve also learned a new technique recently and wanted to test it out. The three looks we ended up going for was:

To add to her outfit, I whipped out some red flowers I had laying around and created this “custom” headpiece. You can’t see but we had so many bobby pins in there to hold the individual pieces up.

We shot in front of a backdrop, can you tell? I placed it next to a giant window but used my LED light to light her instead of natural light. All overhead light turned off.

For the second outfit, we went for classy black everything so that her red lips will be the pop of color.

I have to admit that blond hair looks pretty darn good again a dark backdrop.

Now for the more artistic and playful images. I saw a really gorgeous shots of a girl in a hat. I happened to have a black hat at the house so I brought it along.  What a coincident that we both brought the same black hat to the shoot.

The night before the shoot, I thought it would be cool to add a sweater into the mix. Something a little more casual and playful. I meant to make these photos into black and white but I’m such a sucker for colors that I couldn’t.

  1. I like these, Tra. It helps, too, that she’s got great skin, beautiful eyes, lovely hair, and could be a 50’s pinup girl! She’s gorgeous… and you captured everything wonderfully! Nice lighting!
