Have you ever thought of having your professional business headshot session take place in your own work environment?
Jennifer did and I’d say that it was a great idea. Although we have a studio location available for professional portraits or corporate headshots, sometimes it is better to photograph you in your own environment.
Your environment says a lot about you, your style and your profession. It helps your viewers know more about you. And it gives us unique backgrounds and settings. I love the variety of portraits we were able to capture at Makeup Eden.
Her studio colors lend themselves to great natural facial tones and now from one photography session she has images to multiple advertising and promotional needs. #louisemichaudphotographer #businessheadshot #professionalportrait
I LOVE this photo and it reminds me of the poem “The Owl and the Pussycat”
A beautiful young couple, the historic architecture of downtown Salem and a Super Moon: what more could we have asked for?
We photographed Tom and Cecily’s wedding ceremony on July 11th at St. John’s Church in Beverly Farms and their reception at Colonial Hall in downtown Salem, MA. We went out to take a photograph with the great architecture of the brick building in the background and timed it perfectly so we could capture the Super Moon in a crevice between the buildings in the upper right section of the photograph! The moon stayed with us only for a few minutes, just long enough to capture this unforgettably romantic image.
Food was fabulous and catered by The Catered Affair with Toby keeping her watchful eye on everything to making sure it came out on time and perfect. Kelly Delaney from Cakes for Occasions made this unique cake. Ben chose a sports theme. Check out the cool uniforms on the cake.
We learned how many special people Ben has in his life.
Ben was clever and creative with his poetry and inviting everyone up.
Candace needed a publicity portrait for her company. I gave her a consultation over the phone and made an appointment for a photography session. She listen to my recommendations and I believe that her portrait came out beautifully! She had her make-up done here in Salem at Rouge Cosmetics now known as Rouge Salem. Thanks Tracy! Her hair was blow out by her hair dresser. Her engaging personality comes through.
I\’ve taken many types of photographs over the years. But one of my favorites marks an engagement. An engagement session provides a focal point and a keepsake for a save-the-date card, sent to guests ahead of time. It\’s featured in a couple\’s wedding website, where everyone keeps in touch as the ceremony approaches. And it accompanies a formal engagement announcement in a magazine or newspaper.
Liz and Mike decided to have their outdoor engagement pictures taken at Winter Island Park, overlooking the harbor in Salem, Massachusetts. On a late October afternoon, the light was golden, the autumn leaves red, orange and yellow, and the sea blue.
Just perfect complementary colors for a variety of settings. I incorporated textures and shapes in the composition: their sweaters, the foliage, rock outcroppings, and the coastline. Liz and Mike faced each other on a path.
I used both black and white and color settings and a special backlighting that created a thin halo around their figures. Their faces glowed with love. Its symbolic of the new journey they are on together.
Next, they sat down on a boulder. Then I saw two ships sailing into the background one. One of the ships was the famous Schooner FAME of Salem.
I waited until they had moved closer so both could be seen over Liz and Mike\’s shoulders. We enjoyed the session so much that we ended up in gales of laughter.
