For more than 10 years, Magenta Studio Photo's talented photographers have teamed up with clients to craft custom-fitted photo sessions. Each session starts with a consultation to review the myriad options available for solo portraits, couples, families, and more. Then, clients can create a preferred ambience by selecting background colours and lighting options. Tailored photo sessions give models the chance to pose with props brought from home or from Magenta Studio Photo's costume cache. Following the session, photographers are happy to review every pose to ensure satisfaction and to help subjects select shots that can be immortalized on a fleet of products, such as prints, iPhone cases, and home accessories.
Customers can peruse the homepage gallery for examples of Magenta Studio Photo's moment-capturing prowess, and consult the FAQ page to answer any inquiries.
