Pro Tip: Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of life.
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
The birth of a baby will mark the most defining moment in a person's life. From that day forward,
everything changes and means everything. And in just weeks, your new little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms. They are only this little for a very short time. With a newborn portrait session at Diane Bartoo Photography, we help you preserve those memories forever.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
We provide beautiful pregnancy clothing for mamas. These gowns are top-quality and made from chiffon and silk so that we can capture gorgeous flowing movement of the dress. Our newborn wraps are made from angora, merino wool, and cashmere. You will not need to purchase anything for mama or baby; all props, blankets, and head pieces are made from the finest materials and are available for your use.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
Pregnancy and newborn photography are best done within a specific point of development. I like to photography pregnant mamas between 32 and 37 weeks so we have a beautifully round belly and mama is still feeling active. Newborn babies are best photographed before they are 10 days old. These are only guidelines for best-case scenarios, and we do photograph outside these guidelines.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am very comfortable working with mamas and newborns. With 20 years of photography experience and over five of those years working exclusively with mamas and newborns, I have perfected my craft in the pregnancy and newborn photography industry.
After a fruitful modeling career, Lori Brystan moved to the other side of the camera lens, where she began to capture artful portraits of families, kids, and women that would look at home in the pages of a fashion magazine. In 1989, she opened Brystan Studios, which eventually expanded to include a team of professional makeup artists, hairstylists, set designers, and photographers. Inside the professional studio, a large dressing room brims with props, fan mail, and glamorous costumes. Using in-studio sets, Lori captures images ranging from burlesque-themed boudoir shoots to pared-down images, such as women posing in front of a white sheet or siblings lying in a hammock. The studio also specializes in love-note videos, professionally produced short films that capture the subject's inner starlet without the use of a net. The busy shutterbug also works as beauty editor for the lifestyle pub Greer's OC and penned High Impact Portrait Photography, a book on framing eye-catching portraits.
For photographers, the process of capturing meaningful portraits requires more than first-rate equipment and technical know-how. As the team at Jack Randall Photography knows, photographers must also establish a comfortable environment for their subjects. Armed with high-resolution digital cameras, Jack Randall's photographers capture casual poses and candid moments during shoots conducted at their indoor studio.
Elizabeth Toller Productions is a professional photography studio that combines traditional methods with digital image-enhancement techniques to accurately make reality better. With over 10 years of experience, Elizabeth Toller’s cameras click masterfully to capture the souls of families, political candidates, corporate-event attendees, and inanimate objects. First, clients will meet with the photographer to discuss session locations, themes, and clothing styles—options that are only limited by imagination and the client's wardrobe of stolen circus costumes. Clients will then spend a 30-minute photo shoot ($100) acting natural, interspersed with practicing their best vogues. Later, a special projection proofing process allows light reflectors to preview the results on a big screen to simplify image selection. Later, clients will receive a 5"x5" photo book ($95) that includes 10 two-dimensional clones of themselves for safe keeping at home.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
