I met Olivia while working on a commercial product launch photo job for a client in New Hampshire. She mentioned that she had always wanted to get her portrait taken because she had never done it before. After explaining my process to her, we booked a date and started talking all about how she would like to be photographed.
Olivia knew she wanted quite a few black and white photos since she was in love with the “old Hollywood” style but also wanted a variety of looks. We planned for anywhere between three and five outfit changes and after her hair and makeup session with Kelly Glover, we dove in. We started simply with some natural light images to ease into the process and then stepped it up to a full-on glamour-shoot. As we got rocking and rolling, the time flew by and before we knew it, four hours had passed.
The laughs were constant and Olivia looked more stunning with every outfit she put on. After the session, enjoying a bit of fruit and Prosecco, we recapped the day and both got excited about the images we were creating. Nora McCormack from SP Films was on hand to help as a photo assistant and take a few behind-the-scenes video clips for me. I took the clips and edited them down into a brief glimpse of the day. Take a look.
Liv came back up to the studio three weeks later for her Reveal session and wound up walking out with a package of images that she can show off to everyone.
