What’s YOUR favorite portrait season?

True New Englanders relish the gift that Mother Nature gives us as she serves up four uniquely beautiful seasons.   Our local landscapes experience a wardrobe change each season and we here at Louise Michaud Photographer would love to photograph you in each one.  Portraits and headshots for all seasons!

This is why we have started an “All Seasons” portrait portfolio to capture your beauty in each season.   If you have an absolutely favorite season, we can certainly shoot your portrait then.  BUT,  there is certainly no reason to lock your headshots or senior portraits into just one season anymore!

Check out the Fall and Winter shots below.  Stay tuned for a blog that will highlight the Spring and summer work that will round out this client’s portfolio.

By the way, consider browsing my Senior Portraits and Headshots pages.


Fall portraits burst with color and change

 

 

Have some fun with the yellows, reds and browns of fall.  Rest in the beautiful end of season change.  Celebrate the change of light and color.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Listen to the leaves rustle as you wear some of your favorite fall styles that help you blend into the season for a cool day outside

We all look different in each season, just as nature does.  If fall is a special season to you, be sure to capture your portrait.

 

 


Winter portraits – reflection and looking forward

 

 

 

Crisp blue skies, fresh fallen snow set the stage for outdoor activity.  Bundle up and head outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter allows us to reflect on the year past and to prepare for a new year.    We wear layers of clothes that still preserve fashion.  A portrait in the Winter will remain a treasure for you and your family for generations forward.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Without a winter portrait you may never remember how beautiful you look in a snowfall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Think of the year that has passed. Understand what you have achieved and what you need to think about in the coming New Year.  This is the time to plan your resolutions and work on fulfilling them.

Get ready for your Spring portrait!

5 Considerations when hiring a photographer for your corporate headshots.

 

Do you have a clear idea about what to look for when hiring a professional photographer for corporate or business headshots? Here are 5 important points to look for when hiring a photographer for corporate headshots.

Having been a professional photographer for over 30 years, I would like to share some valuable tips that we have learned and what to look for when hiring a professional photographer or when doing it yourself.

 

Group of business headshots.
Business team
  1. MAKE HEAD SIZES ALL THE SAME – Some people are a lot taller than others. The top of their head should all be equal distance from the top of the crop so no one dominates their headshot because of their height. Heads should then be made so they are pretty much the same size. Even though some people have much larger or smaller heads.

 

  1. CONSISTENT BACKGROUND – The background is consistently the exact same color.  This creates a unified presentation that everyone is on the same team. This is especially important if some of your designs may be grid based.

 

  1. ADDING NEW EMPLOYEES – Subsequent new-hires will match with the previous themes that you have established.

 

  1. TIME AND MONEY – Most professional photographers will bring background and studio lighting to photograph headshots at your business location. Once this is set up it is very efficient for photographing many people.

 

  1. IMMEDIATELY MAKE YOUR SELECTION – Professionals will have their equipment tethered to viewing hardware (like an iPad) so that you can immediately make your selection.  This makes sure that every portrait will be one that you love.

Fashion Portrait

Fashion has always been something that has intrigued me, especially when it comes to portraits, and especially portraits that are fashion inspired.  I often comb through Vanity Fair or Vogue publications for inspiration and unique portrait ideas. The photo below was created using a custom portrait background we painted here at our studio. I love the movement in the gown.  This effect was created using special lighting and an industrial fan and is inspired by Annie Leibovitz and her Vanity Fair portraits. Tell us about what inspires you and together let’s create a beautiful portrait of you.

Creative Headshot and Portrait Photography

With all of the weddings I do and post about, it may come as a surprise to know that I love shooting headshot and portrait photography. I recently had the opportunity to photograph a stunning model and actress, Erica Snow, for a headshot session in my studio. As you can see below, she is a natural in front of the camera, which made the shoot all the more enjoyable.
