Portrait photography for Samantha.

portrait-photography-session 008

Samantha is a personal development,  business and wellness coach and wanted a folio of portrait images to use for business purposes. She wanted a fashion edge to her images rather than the usual happy smily portraits that most of the people in her industry use. She wanted to stand out.

This was a fun session as Sam was very easy to photograph as well as being a very confident and positive person. We love the portraits that we managed to capture for her and thank her for giving us permission to use them here.

Many ladies think that they must be naked or in lingerie to shoot with us. That is very far from the truth as you can see by this session with Sam. Her outfits were very simple but very elegant and effective.

During your session you are welcome to combine several styles of photography according to your personal comfort level, including glamour, boudoir, portraiture, vintage and artistic nude. You are also welcome to bring your husband/partner in for a few romantic images together if you wish. Your session includes wonderful relaxing makeover (hair and makeup) so consider planning a night out that evening to take advantage of your fantastic look.

Fashion photography session with Amie & Moka Creations

fashion amie 5

This was such a fun fashion photography session with Amie and the fantastic team at Moka Creations. We have a small forest area close to our studio which was perfect for our concept. We took along our gramophone and antique mirrors along with some stunning gowns and we had a ball.

All of the images in the mirrors were photographed in situation. Karen held the mirrors in place and Dean cut the model out of each shot then combined it all together to get the results that you see. It was a very heavy job but it worked.

The red and the white gowns were supplied by Niki Teljega. Styling and accessories by Moka Creations.

Some helpful tips and information for aspiring models.

Some modelling agencies will offer to do your model photography for you, but they will retain ownership of the images. This means that if you decide to move onto another agent, you won’t be able to take your photos. If you have your model photography done by an independent photographer you will retain the ownership of your images. If your not happy with your agent, you simply move onto another one, with your images.

It is a good idea to practice some posing before you come in for your session so that you are more comfortable when your in front of the camera. We will help you with posing but you should know a few basic poses. Stand in front of the mirror and practice at least 3 different poses and become comfortable with them. Look online to see what poses you like and what you can manage.

During your model photography session with us, you will gain valuable experience in regards to what you can expect if you get modelling work. We keep our work age appropriate and will not photograph nude or topless work for under 18yrs. Underage models are in a safe environment with us, with images being 100% age appropriate at all times and mothers are most welcome to be in the sessions at all times.

Once you have your edited images you can present yourself to a few different agencies & choose the one that suits you and your modelling style the best. You should not have to pay to join an agency since you will already have your own images.

If you would like information on a session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230 669 or email on this link.

Sierra Rose Designer Homewares needed a commercial photographer to photograph their new range of vintage aprons and accessories. After seeing our other commercial work as well as our vintage pinup work, they chose us for this awesome project.  We all had such a lot of fun shooting this session and our models were just perfect for this project.

The aprons were for adults and children and the young model was the daughter of Vicki, the owner and creator of Sierra Rose. We were lucky enough to find the amazing venue belonging to Nevis Garth who has transformed her home into a 50’s – 60’s haven, complete with a diner and juke box. Nevis has a room full of vintage outfits and accessories and nicknacks absolutely everywhere.

Our wonderful models were Jessica McGuiness and Sierra Simms. Hair and makeup was by Monique Torres.

Commercial fashion photography for Unique Mouton

Commercial fashion for Unique Mouton 014

This is the 3rd year we have photographed the new season Ugg boots for Unique Mouton. These Ugg boots are made in Australia from Australian sheep skin and exported to Japan by Yuko Crease. Each year Yuko arrives with stunning Ugg boots using colour, patterns, crystals & buttons to add extravagance to her Uggs.

We always have a great time during our session with Yuko and this year was no exception. We started in the studio for a few sets and ventured to Hope Island for a park and a marina shot, and then onto the spit at South Port for the beach image.

This year we used Felicity Boughen as our model. We photographed Felicity earlier this year when she came to us for a model folio session in the hopes of kicking off a modelling career. We were so impressed with her on the day that we thought of her when Yuko asked for a blonde model for this year. Felicity did a great job. All in all it was a successful day.

Here are links to the last 2 yrs sessions with Unique Mouton: 2012 & 2013
