THE CLASSIC PORTRAIT SESSION IS IN STUDIO. The Classic session is a great option for a woman who wants a collection of absolutely breathtaking portraits of herself that are wall-worthy. There is preparation pre-shoot.......wardrobe for this session can be a ball gown, little black dress, fabric draping. There are more special effects and finessing on the back end such as fine art textures and extensive retouching done on these images, and the final outcome is roughly 15-20 fully enhanced wall-ready images. My typical style is a soulful finish with a "fine art" look and feel, up to a painterly finish. This however, is your bespoke experience, so the final look and feel is up to you. The question will always be - what can we create for you? The finished product is our beautiful LAUREN folio box with wall ready images. This is an ideal session for the woman who loves the portraits of Vanity Fair and wants a studio experience.
ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAITS are done in a woman's usual environment, such as her home or workplace, and is meant to illuminate her life and surroundings and to capture her AUTHENTIC essence. These images tend to be a little more raw, real, candid, unposed, though I do pose you. These are meant to embrace a woman's independence, femininity, and her FIERCENESS IN THE WORLD. This can involve a certain level of undress (either lingerie, loungewear, other intimate apparel).
The finished product is typically a variety of about 60-70 images with a natural retouch (no special effects other than black and white on some images) that include "detail" shots such as legs, breasts, back and shoulders, lips, as well as full body scapes and imagery that includes the face. These images are intended to tell a story so the finished product is a beautiful handmade photobook vs. individual images. You can, however, select images from this shoot for display.
This is an ideal session for the woman who wants to be photographed in her own space, loves images that are a little more raw, real, candid, and unposed. Lovers of Peter Lingbergh's style. This is also ideal for the woman who needs personal branding or social media content for her business.
