Portrait photo shoot for Louise
Louise approached us recently to ask if she could come into the studio for a portrait session so that she could present the photographs as a surprise gift to her partner. The arrangements had to be kept a secret from Carl and today Louise came in to choose which images she wanted printing. Perfect timing because today is Carl's birthday, but as he is back in Colorado, Louise plans to email her favourite picture from the session over to him. We are very lucky to have a fantastic professional make-up artist who comes in for our clients whenever they want a make-over and as professional make-up makes such a difference in ladies' portraiture, not to mention how lovely it feels to be pampered, we asked Louise if this was something she was interested in. She jumped at the chance to have Nicky make her over before the photo session. Nicky created two different "looks" - the first an understated make-up for daytime and the second, a more glamourous make-up with brighter lips and smokey eyes. Louise, who says she hates pictures of herself, was over the moon with them, choosing nine different images to be printed. She was a pleasure to work with and this image is the one which will be winging its way to America. Happy birthday Carl!
