Before booking your 15-min phone consultation, so that we can get to know each other, read through these Frequently Asked Questions:
My clients use them for various purposes: a press kit; LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media profiles; employee directories at work; even dating profiles! Depending on your needs—as I'm working with you—I approach posing differently and give you very specific instructions to bring out the right body language and facial expressions. My ultimate goal is to create a portrait of you that will help you make an impeccable first impression—whether online or in press—within seconds.
Absolutely! Unless my client is a professional model, she hardly ever knows what to do with herself in front of a camera. But don't worry! I will observe you as we work together and will give you very specific instructions as to how to sit and stand, where to put your feet and hands, how to make sure your face is relaxed and your smile is natural. I will also show you the images we are capturing as we go along and you will tell me what works for you and what doesn't. Nothing makes me happier than a client who's wowed by her own beauty.
I work with very experienced makeup artists who have served such women as Susan Sarandon, Naomi Watts, Dakota Fanning, and other VIPs. My makeup artists are very attentive to my clients' needs and always listen carefully to make sure you're happy with your look. I have to be sure you're happy with your look, too, for one simple reason: if you don't feel comfortable with your look, you won't like the photos!
I learned photography when I was 9 years old. Back then I was using a medium-format film camera, developed my own black-and-white film and printed photos in our home darkroom. I started with photographing my classmates and since then tried all types of photography from landscapes to abstract. Having played with various subjects, I came full circle and returned to portraiture. I now know for sure that portraiture is what gives me the greatest joy. I love connecting with people and I love reflecting your beauty back at you through my lens.
My portrait work has appeared in Huffington Post, Business Insider, Observer, Style Bistro, Yahoo! Finance, Smart Hustle magazine, Dekit magazine, and Fuse Tribal and Fusion Belly Dance magazine.
