Since the advent of the camera phone and social media, the world of selfies and capturing even the most mundane moments of life has exploded.
While these day-to-day pictures fill our lives, most of us only get professional photos taken when we have a special event: an engagement or wedding or a baby on the way — after that, it’s all about the kids and family.
One of our ongoing goals at GVP is to get people in front of the camera, even without these typical milestones. Recently, one of our clients, Shannon, came in to get pictures taken “just because” — and why not?
Everyone deserves beautiful photos of themselves, no matter what stage of life they’re in.
Our tips? Wear outfits that make you feel confident, and colors that will show up well on camera. Consider deciding on one bold color or print with simple pieces. Even better, go for a high-low look: mix fancy pieces with more casual ones, or vintage with new. Add funky accessories to simple outfits, but don’t go overboard.
When you come in for your shoot, have fun! We will take care of the posing, the backgrounds, the light — you relax, showcase your smile, and enjoy the process of documenting who you are in the moment.
