you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror and each will smile at the other's welcome, and say, sit here. Eat.
YOU WILL LOVE AGAIN
the stranger who was your self. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
- Derek Walcott
How do we prepare?
The first step is a consultation. How do you want to be photographed? It's your time; these are going to be YOUR treasures...treasures that will survive you and be left to your loved ones.
Where will we shoot?
We can shoot on-location or in-studio. I prefer in-studio so that we can plan the look, feel and style of your images. Shooting in-studio give us better control of the light and we can be more creative. That said, natural light and natural areas provide their own beauty. I've got that here as well or we can plan on a location of your choice.
What about the makeover?
Ahhh... my favorite! This is the transformative experience! These shoots are in-studio or outside nearby. The nearby part is because we don't have electricity everywhere we want to go on location but, I have a beautiful outdoor space here so can shoot studio or natural light. Plan on being with me for ~ 3 hours. A hairdresser will do your hair and a makeup artist will perfect your look.
What the cost of the shoot?
The portraiture sitting fee is $190 and includes the hair and makeup artist. Packages start at $390. Folio box collections (timeless and tailor made from Fináo or GraphiStudio) are timeless and tailor made to last for generations, starting at $550.
