Within Striking Poses' studio, clients can travel anywhere—the beach, say, or back in time to the glamorous era of early Hollywood. To set these scenes, Striking Poses' team relies on its selection of detailed backdrops, as well as soft boxes that conjure dramatic lighting effects. That said, the studio also accommodates sessions in a naturally lit outdoor space—whether it be for modeling shoots, family portrait sessions, or passport photos. As each photo is snapped, it appears on the studio's 27-inch monitor, allowing clients to better adjust the shoot around their personal visions. To preserve those visions, Striking Poses' crew creates a variety of products, including canvas wraps and and enlargements.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My style is very natural. I like everyone to look happy because they are. My goal is to get natural expressions that you will love.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started photography in high school. I can't think of anything I would have loved more as a career. I honestly love my job.
What do you love most about your job?
That moment when someone loves how they look in one of my images, especially after warning me that they always look terrible in photos. I really love seeing my images treasured in people's homes.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Everyone who sees the photos comments on how great they are! My friends will be calling you!
