It was an amazing afternoon at Expressions Studio One working with Vanessa to create a collection of beautiful images. A special thanks to our hair and makeup artist Tiffany Coy….Tiffany is an amazing artist that works hard to meet all the needs of shoot.
Thanks Vanessa for choosing Expressions Studio One to save your special memories.
It was one of those nights in the studio when everything just seemed to work perfect. Monica came in after having her hair and make-up completed by Josh Brown of Pura Luxe Salon, Spa, Med Spa in Knoxville, TN…Josh did an amazing job and far exceeded every hope we had for the shoot. Thanks Josh!!! On top of that fact that Monica’s hair and makeup were just perfect…Monica had spent a couple of weeks pulling together outfits that were perfect for the shoot. When a team of people get together with a creative heart and spirit wonderful things are bound to happen, and this shoot was one of those magical shoots when everything went just as planned…no…they went better than planned.
We shot for several hours and went through several different looks….please enjoy a short slideshow that will give you a small taste of the amazing session we has at Expressions Studio One. Thanks for stoping by to visit for a few minutes. Hey!!! What about YOU!? Wouldn’t you enjoy a session like this? Call us today and book in for your memory session…you’ll be glad you did…the experience is like no other. I’m really looking forward to hearing from you really soon.
I think Steve Jobs defined creativity best when he said,
“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”
When I was getting ready for this session I knew I wanted to create something for Heather that was more than just a simple photograph…I wanted to create something that told a story and sent a message of hope. So you ask what was my inspiration for this image of Heather? Here are my thoughts on this image.. Often life can become a tangle of issues and problems that can trap us and keep us from the great life we should be enjoying…yet even in the tangle of life there is always a light of hope. So I hung some vines in the studio and put Heather into the vines…we tried many different angles and finally this image came into focus and when we saw it on the monitor we knew we had met our goal for the shoot.
Another creative moment happened when Shannon brought her son and daughter to the studio to be part of her maternity portrait. When I saw the playfulness of the kids I just knew that I had to do something to express the joy they find in being a family and how excited they are about adding a new sister to their family…So we just had a play time together and this is what resulted…..she now has a creative and playful memory of this time in her life.
When I booked the session with Angel I really didn’t have a guiding thought from the shoot…I just knew I wanted to create something creative. The day before the shoot instruments kept coming to mind…so I called Angel and told her that I wanted to shoot her with lots of instruments…and that I needed her to bring some black paints, white shirt, and a couple of casual outfits. When she arrived I had the instruments all over the camera room…Angel changed into the black and white outfit and we started playing…the images above are what grew out of that time together.
Creating images that are different and outside the box are so exciting and fun to create. I would love to book you into the studio really soon and work together to create something very special for you. Give us a call today and let’s book you in for a free consultation session where we will plan your shoot. I’m looking forward to meeting you face to face really soon.
Creating my studio space over the past year has been an evolutionary task that I have enjoyed more than works could ever express. There’s always something that needs fixing, redoing, mopped or dusted…but no matter the task it love being in the studio, and I love even more being able to share it with my clients. This past week my daughter and son-in-law (Joanna and Matt) came over and spent 12 hours on their knees helping me put in new flooring in the camera room. When it was finally finished I could hardly believe my eyes how beautiful it looked. I thought the place looked great before the floors went in but now that I’ve seen it with wood down…I could never go back to concrete.
