Announcing our Sophisticated Beauty Portraiture
We are thrilled to announce a brand new portrait service we are offering at Lola Jo Photo—Sophisticated Beauty Portraiture.
All too often as women we spend our lives as caretakers of those we love and frequently put ourselves last. While admirable and a natural instinct (especially for moms!), this is not always beneficial to us. Feeling run down, drained and empty is a common complaint amongst our friends and clients but from a photographic standpoint perhaps the biggest issue is women being absent in photos. Ladies are often either taking all of the photos so they aren’t in them or they aren’t happy with how they look and avoid the camera. Either way, the result is a noticeable absence in a family’s photographic history and in the long run those it hurts the most are those that we spend our lives devoted to—our spouses and children.
Brandi and Amy feel passionately about how important it is to be present in photos for our family. And to that end, we desired to create a process that not only provided a pampered experience for these lovely ladies, but also resulted in gorgeous portraits to be treasured by our client as well as her family for generations to come. The result is our new Sophisiticated Beauty Portraiture sessions.
These sessions begin with a pampered makeover in our petite salon located right in our studio. Our beauty expert provides our clients with a professional make-up application as well as hair styling. After relaxing and enjoying a full glamour experience it’s time for a custom fashion shoot. Brandi & Amy work with each client to guide them in flattering poses to create stunning portraits that truly highlight their best features in a relaxed and fun environment. And we really do have fun! We provide beverages of your choice, fresh fruit, your favorite music in addition to your makeover and portrait session to provide you with some time devoted only to you surrounded by our all female staff to take care of you and create stunning portraits.
After the session we encourage our clients to enjoy a night on the town with their girlfriends or a romantic night out with their husband while they are all dolled up and looking their glamorous best.
Following the photo shoot Brandi & Amy begin the post-production process on the images taken. The best images are selected and edited by hand to provide a complete artistic experience from start to finish.
Approximately a week after the session we welcome our client back to the studio to review the beautiful images we created at her session. We walk our clients through the ordering process at this time to help them determine which portrait products best fit their needs.
Without a doubt though, our favorite part of this experience is watching our clients faces as they see their Beauty Portraiture images for the first time. It is incredibly gratifying to see how excited and emotional they are to see themselves looking their absolute best. We are incredibly fortunate to have the career that we have and so blessed to help women feel and look their best!
