Artistic Lifestyle Portraits for Creatives & Models

"Now keep in mind that I'm an artist, and I'm sensitive about my shi--."

-- Erykah Badu

Artistic Lifestyle portraits are not for the camera-shy! This session style is for enthusiastic artists & creatives of all types---models, musicians, poets, painters, writers, etc.---who have distinct, soul-inspired expressions that they'd like to capture with a fellow artist. These images are directed, camera-focused portraits that typically involve controlled lighting setups, posed body positioning, & unique wardrobe selections to produce original & dramatic images. Together, we will create your vision.

Artistic Lifestyle sessions are also ideal for fashion portrayal, make-up highlights, & intimate glamour portraits.

What To Expect . . .

Before the Session

We’ll have a pre-session “prep talk” to connect with each other & discuss image ideas, wardrobe choices, location selection, & what products you’re interested in. I’ll prepare you to be in front of the camera so you can fully enjoy the creation process.

Day of Session

We’ll meet at the chosen location & begin the session with a few test shots to get you comfortable & relaxed. We then ease into the awesome experience of creating your Soul Art. I’ll also have sample prints & art displays for you to preview & select your preferred styles.

After the Session

Now for the best part…seeing your images! I’ll set up a selection gallery of your best portraits for you to choose your favorites & place any additional orders. Once editing & retouching is complete, you’ll be able to download your chosen portraits directly from your gallery.
