When I was in the 8th grade every one of my friends went and did “Glamour Shots”. All of them had a soft focus filter, bad hot pink backgrounds and either a jean jacket or a feather boa (if you were trying to be extra classy). The hair was teased and the make up totally inappropriate for teen girls. Yet we all did it. Twenty years later I think I’ve figured out why. Every woman wants to feel gorgeous.
I love the idea (not the application) of this kind of photo session. Nothing is more rewarding for a photographer than seeing a person come alive in front of your camera. Modern Glam sessions are a great way to do just that. Here’s an example.
Meet Larissa. (And her husband and three cute kids as seen above.) Like most modern women she wears a variety of hats; mother, wife, and CEO of Mode: a Fashion Magazine. She is smart, talented, generous, and beautiful. My goal with Larissa’s session was to simply make her look and feel the way everyone around her sees her. So often we are bogged down by the daily routine of life we can loose sight of the fact that others can’t help but be dazzled by how truly remarkable we are.
We actually did two completely different looks during Larissa’s session. This second one was inspired by the resemblance between this fiery redhead and Christina Hendricks in Mad Men.
Modern Glam sessions include professional hair and makeup provided by my team of experts then photographed in my studio. As with all of my clients, a pre-shoot consultation is scheduled before your session. Together we choose wardrobe and inspiration looks to guide your session and create real glamour that won’t go out of style.
